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

The guys had bison burgers and the gals had salmon burgers. All meals were excellent. Nice variety of salads and desserts. Best lunch we had in Gatlinburg. Best to make reservations.
