We always have great service and food at this restaurant. The salad bar is my favorite one anywhere! It is hard to come here and not have a steak. We had the filets and my son had the stuffed shrimp. Everything was cooked perfectly. If you have room, try the Blondie for dessert. They have many excellent dessert choices. Make... More

You have a steak Peddler that comes right to your table. You get to look at your steak and choose which type of meat that you would prefer.

My wife and I both had ribeye steaks that were very good and cooked exactly as requested. On arrival (without a reservation) they apologized that the dining room was full but offered to seat us in the lounge. Actually this may have been nicer, quiet and with a nice view over the stream. Service was good and friendly. Good salad... More

My husband & I have been coming to the Peddler for many years & it is never disappointing. We always call ahead & ask for a table by the river. What a wonderful sight while dining! The salad bar is superior. I love the huge selection of items and it's always fresh. My favorite is the filet. I usually get... More

My husband and I recently visited Gatlinburg and had an early dinner in the lounge. The view overlooking the stream was lovely and I preferred that to the candlelit dining room downstairs. My husband had the trout and steak combination. The trout filet was slightly dry and unremarkable and the steak was satisfying I ordered the salmon and was surprised... More

We went for a birthday party and were very satisfied. The salad bar has everything you can think of, including artichokes, anchovies, baby corn, scallions and much more. I liked the poppy seed dressing. The tools are soft and warm. The peddler came to our table to hand cut steaks to order. They were cooked to perfection. Expensive, but definitely... More

We had a lovely dinner. The steaks were cut at the table and were prepared just as we ordered. The salad bar was by far one of the best I have seen in some time. The sides were plentiful. We finished our dinner with an amazing chocolate cake. The wait staff was very friendly, Bobbie was wonderful.

eat here every time we visit Gatlinburg. Best steak you're going to get and a great view if you happen to be lucky enough to get a window seat.
