Charming, bit of a wait

We hadn't been to the Wild Plum Tea Room since 2003. We had to wait a bit but not surprising since it is a popular place. I enjoyed my meal but didn't recall nutmeg being on the chicken salad from the last time I had it. The complimentary muffins and wild plum jelly were quickly devoured. The wild... read more

We love this place. It is quaint and the food is great. The plum muffins are wonderful. Service is excellent. All of the deserts are sinful. Wait staff is very friendly.

Wild Plum Tea Room is an absolutely wonderful tea room tucked back in the Great Smoky Mountains. I have made numerous visits. It's tucked away in the Crafters Loop, and is a little out of the way, but it's totally worth the little, short drive. The menu itself is great, and there are delicious specials everyday. Go! You will not... More

I am a big fan of tea room restaurants and Wild Plum served the most delicious food I have ever enjoyed. Their menu goes way beyond the usual cucumber sandwiches and scones. Our group enjoyed a complete variety of offerings but my lobster pot pie was the hit of the day, truly outstanding! And the desserts! Scrumptious! My only suggestion... More

Wild Plum Tea Room is located in the Arts and Crafts section of Gatlinburg. This is away from the crowds of the main part of Gatlinburg. It is rather "girlie" with white lace tablecloths, but my husband enjoyed the restaurant. We sat in the screened in porch, which was a beautiful place to enjoy lunch. The food is of really... More

Immediately upon pulling into their small driveway out and away from the buzz of town, I knew this place would be special. The parking area is small, but additional parking is located further down the roadway. The tea room is open 11am-3pm, so keep that in mind if you were hoping for breakfast/dinner. They have a lovely welcoming garden full... More

I was most impressed with the outside deck built around trees. The Wild Plum tea shined. I loved the red white and blue salad (watermelon, Feta, and blueberry). The scones were delicious. I was surprised at how tasty the Tortilla soup was. The arrival system needs an upgrade. I felt uncomfortable sitting in the waiting area for 10 minutes without... More

I only give fives for someplace special. Wild Plum has earned the five! Such a nice place to relax and unwind. Our server, Karlee, did a wonderful job. She was very knowledgeable about the menu, fast and efficient. She made everything sound so delicious. The food was really good. My Pimento cheese sandwich was plentiful and the collard greens in...

This quaint restaurant facade is quite deceiving. It is dainty and such a charm. My husband as well as children love the environment as well as the food. The wild plum tea is exceptional! Dont miss out on this gem! We try to visit every time we go to gatlinburg!
