We stopped for lunch on our way around the arts and crafts loop and were glad to find it wasn't too crowded. We did have to park across the street...and be warned that the road can be busy and there is a bit of a walk to get from the parking to the tea room. The restaurant is quaint and... More

My family stopped at this quaint tea room while visiting Gatlinburg. I had savory chicken and herb soup and delicious Vanilla bean ice cream. My mother had scrumptious chicken salad and amaretto bread pudding. My Dad had the tuna special which had great flavor. My brother was satisfied with a fruit and cheese plate. Our service was great! I would... More

During a family reunion, several family members and I stumbled upon this wonderful, little restaurant. We had to wait for quite awhile to be seated, but the wait was worth it! The tea room is located in an old, two-story home. It is decorated with antiques, tea sets, and local artists' artwork. Our waitress was outgoing and friendly. Everyone in... More

One of the few places in the area worth stopping in for a meal. This is real food, freshly prepared; you're not going to find much of that in the tourist trap areas. Beautiful setting, outdoor and inside. We had a bit of a wait on a Saturday for lunch due to a large party inside, but the wait was... More

You've GOT to experience lunch at the Wild Plum Tea Room! We go every time we are in town & actually went two days in a row this time. The food is gourmet & unique, plus their menu changes often with not your run-of-the-mill specials. This is a great place to go for a quiet, peaceful lunch with no kids... More

Once again our car club was out and about, this time in the Gatlinburg area. I had called a week in advance for reservations, and again the morning of our outing to confirm for 15 people. When we arrived they were ready for us although the restaurant was full with a waiting line. Our waitstaff was very friendly and accommodating... More

A guy at one of the Artisan shops said we had to try it if we wanted the freshest, best lunch around. So we did. Hidden away in the trees on the Artisan loop, one felt something special just going in. We were seated personally by the chef/ owner. Intimate, small doily covered tables in a house of small rooms...

Just returned from first visit to the Wild Plum tea room. Fortunately I did not arrive hungry as the wait to be seated was a bit long. We arrived at one o'clock and waited 30 minutes. It might not have seemed so long if we had not observed a pair of tables on the patio that remained open for our... More
