Great food and well worth the wait! Salad bar and rolls are very good. I will go back again when in the area.

The steak was very good. I had a blackened ribeye. Very very good. My wife had the salad bar and she said it was one of the best she's had. Our waitress seemed in a bad mood though. We said thank you several times. No response at any time. The steak peddler could not give us a recommendation or answer... More

We went to the Peddler for our 20 year anniversary and the restaurant gave us a great table and set us up with a candle light dinner. What an amazing restaurant.

The Peddler has become my family's favorite place to eat during our season trips to Gatlinburg. Call at least one hour before you arrive to get your name on their list for seating. If there is a party of 4 or less, you can ask to sit next to the creek which iis very nice. A peddler will come to... More

For the past two years while visiting the Smokies, I have dined at The Peddler. Each time I was disappointed in the way my steak has was prepared. I ordered the fillet mignon, and when it was served it was relatively tasty. I ordered it medium. After about five minutes into my meal, however, the steak dried out just sitting... More

We took the precaution of making a reservation in advance, if you do not then better prepare for quite a wait for a table. This restaurant is very busy. There is something ridiculously flattering about being asked for id more than forty years after you became age qualified to drink alcohol. Fortunately my wife had the necessary proof with her,...

Great steaks, sides and salad bar. The only problem is the excruciatingly long wait to be seated. We make sure to eat here every time we visit Gatlinburg. Don't miss eating here!

Horrible, steak tasted like Cotten. Was more meat tenderizer than actual meat and the service wasn't much better.

We got the pleasure of picking our steak right from the peddlers cart. I choose the new York strip most tender steak I have ever had & it was cooked perfectly, there meal also comes with the salad bar and it is huge with lots to choose from. My husband had the trout and he said it was very good... More
