My husband and I love the Wild Plum. We go often and miss them terribly when they are closed for the winter. The servers are wonderful and really care about helping. I am Gluten intolerant, and they suggested deconstructing the salmon burger into a salad for me which was wonderful. Be sure to order the fruit tea; you can even... More

I couldn't sleep one night and I came across a recommendation of this restaurant from the travel channel. I knew my daughter would love to visit a tea room and they did not disappoint. Everything was served on china, the staff was helpful and the food and tea was delicious. I recommend stopping by.

I've read a lot of great reviews about The Wild Plum Tea Room and we've decided to try it out. It's a little out of the way from the hustle and bustle of the Gatlinburg strip which was a very nice change. The main room was not very big but accommodated at least 20 people. The hot plum tea and... More

Went here for Sunday brunch. Showed up right before opened and it filled up quick. Weather was nice so we sat outside. The atmosphere is very eclectic and new englandish . had the chicken salad and was something else. Never thought nutmeg would work but it did. The tea they serve you is great and coupled with the bread pudding... More

We stop at the Wild Plum at least once any time we are in Gatlinburg. We've always left with a very enjoyable experience. The food is wonderfully prepared and presented and the service has always been exceptional. It's a very relaxed atmosphere and perfect place for a light lunch or early afternoon stop for dessert. We'll be back next trip.

Visited this place based on good internet reviews. We were not disappointed. All of our meals were exceptional - Kobe Beef burger with blue cheese, Fresh grilled Tuna, and Lobster casserole were phenomenal. The guys were at first apprehensive about eating at a tea room, but they agreed this was worth the visit and a real treat. BTW we drank... More

Harvest Pumpkin soup was outstanding. Both of our entrees were very good and the gluten-free chocolate dessert was excellent. Portions were fine. Left being just full enough. The Wild Plum special tea was very good. Staff was friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Rustic casual, well maintained.

We had lunch at the Wild Plum Tea Room this week and it was terrible. Used to have the best food and always so fresh. The stratta we had was days old and not even hot. Expensive for such a bad lunch. Very disappointed!

We visit the smokies every year. This year we decided to think outside the box and try this restaurant. We asked multiple people if they had tried it, and while most reported that the food was great, many had bad experiences with the staff. Sadly, our visit was no different. This was our first time at the Wild Plum Tea... More

Loved their special Wild Plum tea - hot or cold! Parking a little tight or else this would definitely be a 5-star rating. Desserts are served in just right portions - very much like a special lunch at Grandma's house....excellent service personnel. Thank you for such a nice lunchtime break!
