This is our favorite spot for a fabulously romantic dinner. The best is to be seated between 7:30 and 8pm. It is worth the wait to be seated on the river. I told them it was our anniversary and we had a candle lite dinner....More

We thought the food was very good but definitely not worth the prices you have to pay. Service was good and accommodating though.

We love to relax on the dining porch overlooking the Little Pigeon River. Would eat here everyday if it were in OKC. Staff very good, food even better. Been dining here my entire adult life. I will continue to do so.🎶

Lovely spot by the creek, food was pretty good but nothing special. Salad bar was fresh and well stocked but not very extensive. Grilled trout, Filet mignon were pretty good. Prime rib pretty good but too lean. Blackberry cobbler too sweet and crust was gummy....More

Read some decent reviews so decided to give The Peddler a try -- the décor and atmosphere here were very nice; but it has a huge dining room, so the noise level was a bit too much. They do not take reservations; but when we...More

We have been here multiple times a year for 25 years. I refuse to miss it. A Gatlinburg staple and the food / salad bar backs it up. Try to get a seat over the water. NOTE- begin calling at 4 to place call ahead...More

Kinda dated in its theme! The food was excellent. Must try the Portobello Mushrooms stuffed with a crab and lobster mix. Bartenders were not friendly, but the way they worked was better than efficient. I would return on a special occasion!

My sister and brother-in-law are both vegetarian and they enjoyed the salad bar and baked potato. By the way this is not my restaurant so I do not know if it is affiliated with the one in Boone. Hope this helps.

I have to disagree with the other commenters here. My NY Strip was bland and had a LOT of gristle rather than fat around the edge. I had eaten at the Peddler many years ago, and it was very good. Tonight's steak did *not... More
