Cozy, quaint, excellent service and WAY off the main Gatlinburg center. I had an excellent bison burger - the best I've ever tasted, my lady enjoyed the crab cake appetizer and collard greens salad. Can't wait to go back!

Invited by my friends, who love this place. I had never been to a TEA ROOM before, so I had no idea what to expect. Once in the Arts and Crafts Community, you find a charming older looking cabin. As you enter, there is a...More

Great little off the beaten path eatery. I read all the reviews about the place and how much of a wait there would be without a reservation etc so we went on a Friday around 2. We didn’t wait long even though they were packed....More

The rest of the year, the Wild Plum Tea Room takes reservations; in October, however, it's first come, first served. Our group of 10 had to wait for a while on this October Friday, but it was well worth the wait. The fruit tea is...More

The Wild Plum tea room is exactly like others have described. It's a quaint, rustic eatery with superb food. The delicious lunch specials are amazing. Although many customers said they had to wait, we were seated immediately at 11:45 on Tuesday October 2, 2018. The...More

Located on the Glades Craft tour by a little stream nestled at the base of a mountain. Open only for lunch, reservations are strongly recommended, and then you still might have to wait. Menu is varied enough that everyone should find something tempting. The food...More

Ever since the fires a few years ago my husband and I wondered if the Wild Plum had gotten through the inferno unscathed. I am so glad to see that it has! We were there September 2014 (contrary to what I was forced to select)...More

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. The ambiance of the restaurant combined with the personal service and the delicious food made for an unforgettable meal. They are only open three days a week at this time and reservations are highly recommended. Every item on the...More

I agree with Josh's assessment. I would say the porch has a larger seating capacity because part of the porch is enclosed on the front of the house and a section of it isn't enclosed for those sunny days you want to enjoy... More
