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!

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

The trolley does pass in front of the Wild Plum. I'm sure the driver would stop and let people off. Not sure exactly where a pick-up stop is, but the trolley driver would be able to help with schedules and times.
