My wife and I took our son along with some friends and their kids. This was our first time eating here. The service was outstanding! It was better than any place I have ever been. The amount of food for the kids on the kids menu was great and it was based on their age. I ordered a 12 ounce... More

This restaurant is one of our favorite places to eat in Gatlinburg. We eat here at least 4 times a year. This Sunday's meal was excellent as usual but for one thing......the restaurant was the busiest we have seen it. It took us 30 minutes to get to and thru the salad bar and we were there when it opened.... More

One of our favorites in Gatlinburg! The best salad bar around! Upscale prices, but worth every penny! Love the tables by the river! They will provide a candle for your table if celebrating! Open only for dinner and can be crowded, but they do call ahead seating. Don't miss this restaurant!

I haven't actually dined inside the restaurant but a friend of mine did bring me dinner from the Peddler last week it was delicious. The grilled shrimp was amazing and the fries were crisp. My steak was cooked perfectly but the meat itself I felt was lacking. Ive worked in a steakhouse for years and can tell it was a... More

We went to the Peddler after walking down the main street and not finding a place without a wait. The Peddler is on the river, and there was no wait there. The food is plentiful, and we ordered a combination meal to share. It was more than enough. The salad bar is included with your meal. We are not meat... More

Our yearly New Years visit to Gatlinburg. We were celebrating daughter's birthday and mother-in-laws retirement. Down a couple due to illness, but still there was a dozen of us. Did call ahead seating for 7:30 and were seated almost immediately. Quite room up front overlooking the parking lot. Only two other tables in the room. Our server Andi (sp) was... More

We ate at a table in the bar, which probably has the best views and we didn't have to wait by opting for the bar. They are well known for their salad bar and they didn't disappoint. Rainbow trout is always on the menu and another specialty of theirs. Excellent steaks and a casual atmosphere.

Thank Larry V
