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!

We always have lunch at the Wild Plum Tea Room when we visit Gatlinburg. It is only open for lunch. We are hikers, but we plan our hike around lunch one day at Wild Plum. The menu changes and is always excellent, exceptional food. This trip, 11-5-14, we had the always complimentary mini muffins with plum jelly and pumpkin soup... More

The Wild Plum Tea Room is open for lunch only and is in a truly lovely setting, a few miles outside Gatlinburg. The service was perfect: polite, gentle and thoughtful. And the food was very good. We enjoyed the toasted sandwich of the day and a fine chicken salad, both served beautifully. The desserts were also superb. We tried the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us about 10 years ago by a total stranger. We were vacationing in the area and didn't know anyone. We had a difficult time finding it, but the effort was worth every wrong turn and more! I can guarantee that one of the reasons we have continued year after year to return to this area... More

We stumbled across the Wild Plum on a tour of the Arts and Crafts circle. What a treat! We arrived about 1:30 on a Monday and there was no wait at all. The service (by Phil) was perfect; the food came almost too fast. My husband had the lobster pie and blanched green salad. The lobster pie was teeming with... More
