My friend and were impressed by the menu selections offered at the Wild Plum Tea Room. We both ordered the strata with squash, dried tomatoes, and cheese. I had the tomato dill soup and loved it. We shared the peach schnapps dessert which was heavenly. The wild plum tea was delicious. I chose the hot tea and my friend had... More

I had a Quinoa dish that was absolutley fabulous. My waiter Tim couldn't have been more helpful and made my visit super enjoyable. Try the Wild Plum tea, it's great.

Well we went here being because it was the #1 restaurant per tripadvisor and not quite sure why.. Yes the tea is good and they're muffin are good too but the food lacked taste altogether and didn't quite give you a wow factor. The salads are different but they also are severely lacking in the taste dept. We tried a... More

The Wild Plum Tea Room was a perfect experience. My family ate outside on a beautiful summer day. My husband got the lobster pie which was awesome. I got the Wild Plum Medley, and everything was delicious. I was very impressed with my daughter's grilled cheese kids meal. It came with fruit making the face of a girl with a... More

One of the few places for a foodie to enjoy around Gatlinburg. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. There were a lot of choices and everything was freshly made. Parking is a little limited, but we happened to be there when a large group was having a party, so that may not always be the case.

We found this place via Trip Advisor. It's not in the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg, which was nice... yet, only 15 minutes from most of the main attractions. And, it's a lovely drive! We were seated promptly on a Friday, for lunch. I have been to restaurants similar to this one, with small, quaint tea room/café atmosphere, yet original... More

This is a unique restaurant with unusual and delicious entrees for lunch. We tried several things that we have never had before and thought it was terrific. However, my idea of a tea room is having several varieties of tea to choose from. This is not the case. In fact, it is either a hot or cold blend of tea... More

A wonderful place for a quiet relaxing lunch. Very clean and unique, inside or outside seating. The menu is limited to a daily special. Every one on the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The Wild Plum is a great find to get away from the Main Street of Gatlinburg, we have lunch there every time we are in that... More

This was our second time to the tea room. We sat near the patio in a screened porch. The food is delicious and the staff very friendly and efficient. The price is a little high, but the meals are filling. Try the plum tea (cold) for a special treat. I look forward to going back here again.
