“Great steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We arrived without a reservation on a Thursday night around 6:00 and were told it would be a 1.5 hour wait. We walked upstairs to find a place to wait and were told all tables upstairs are first come first served, so NO WAIT! We were seated and served immediately. Enjoyed their huge salad bar, drinks and food delivered without a long wait. Good, friendly service.

“Prime prices but not prime cuts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

The atmosphere was nice and the staff was capable, but for the price we paid for the steaks, I feel they should have been prime, not choice. Although they do allow you to select the steak, the marbling was substandard on all the available choices. I recommend sitting near the eindow to watch the water flow by over the rocks.

“Its a bit pricey but worth the money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Great salad bar, there are few in Gatlinburg. Steak was great and cook to order. Dessert was soo good. Always a line to wait and a bit pricey but well worth it! Best place to eat in Gatlinburg!

“Still the Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We dined at the Gatlingburg Peddler last evening and it was just as good as ever! Outstanding selection on the salad bar, and our rib-eyes were cooked just as ordered, and were very good, almost as good as I cook at home! but, it is a little pricey!

“Great food terrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

We have been going to the Peddler for years and have been disappointed with the decline in service over the years. This last visit topped it off. We will never go back. Our server started off by asking if we wanted an appitizer while handing us the menu's, failed to give us bread plates or apitizer plates. Then when she did bring the appitizer plates, slid them across the table at us. Then she said she'd send us themeat cutter in 10 minutes and we had to flag him down ourselves 20 minutes later. The steaks themselves were great, but having to deal with that type of service isn't worth the wait and hastle. It seems they have let their previous sucess and popularity go to their heads.
