Enjoyed the hot plum tea and chicken salad for lunch. Nice out of the way location and a real pleasure being out of the tourist crowd.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here, nestled in the woods as you make your way along Gatlinburg's 8-mile Arts & Crafts Community loop. Definitely true to its tea room roots. The food was a welcome change from most lunch stops. Inventive salads, flavorful soups, great use of fruits and veggies in their offerings. Chicken salad had generous chunks of chicken... More

This is the third time we've visited Wild Plum Tea Room and I was able to bring my best friend who is Vegan. She was very pleased with the menu selections. I had a sampler which included chicken salad, kale salad and corn and pepper chowder which was very good. Love the plum tea and plum muffins. Service is good;... More

I never thought I would give this restaurant an average rating since it has been a favorite of mine for many years. But, on our recent yearly visit to Gatlinburg we were disappointed in our lunch. It feels tired and boring.....same old place mats....looking worn out and frankly dirty. The food was mediocre at best. The highlight of the meal... More

Had lunch with my wife this afternoon at the tea room which was recommended to us by our B&B. Pulling up we were excited because it's unique and historic and has a nice atmosphere. However, the menu is somewhere between a tea room and cafe and the food was odd, bland, and uninspired. I wish the food was on par... More

I visited the Wild Plum Tea Room on the advice of a friend who dines here every time she is in Gatlinburg. Located in the art district, the Tea Room is a quaint little building nestled in the Tennessee woods. After being seated, we were served plum tea, hot or cold, along with scones. We loved our waitresses who were... More

We were told about this place by someone from the arts and crafts community, and we are so pleased they did. We put our name down on the list and waited to be seated and didn't mind this at all. It's worth waiting just for he Wild Plum tea, which we drank hot. A young man served us and literally... More

This quaint tea room is on the 8 Mile Art and Craft Community near Gatlinburg. We were lucky to find this quiet restaurant. Their lobster pie is beyond delicious!! A definite 'must have'! We would go again JUST to have it again!
