Delicious, creative luncheons in a country-decorated log house.

Every experience is a "talk about the food and desserts" time. Not just a "girls day out" place, this log house is filled with hikers, tourists and locals.

Have been here several times, but only for tea and desserts! High recommend!! It's a bit pricey, but worth it. We sat outside on the patio two times and once inside.

I live here and have visited the Wild Plum Tea Room several times over the years. This is a wonderful charming place for a luncheon and the food is consistantly good.

Wandering around the hills of Tennessee, came across this quaint tea room. Interesting choices of sandwiches & salads. Good chicken salad. Excellent blackberry cobbler.

We went to the Wild Plum Tea Room for lunch. The server was smart and helpful. The food was really good. We had the sherries tomato bisque and grilled roast beef. It was accompanied by four very small and light mini muffins. I had the hot wild plum tea- a wonderful citrus tea- served in a real China tea cup.... More

This restaurant is located in a beautiful and rustic area in the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community outside the town of Gatlinburg. We were greeted promptly and the entire menu was explained...

My spouse and I both had the lobster pot pie. Wonderful. Big pieces of claw meat with artichoke hearts in a cream sauce. Really, the entire meal was incredible. The service was gret. The homemade vanilla bean ice cream was delicious.

As a special treat my husband found this place for us when we were visiting Gatlinburg. Not sure what all the complaining is about, we got there & had the place to ourselves, excellent service, delicious food. My husband had the salmon sandwich with orzo and wild rice salad with light kale. I had the lobster pie and harvest pumpkin... More
