The food was good and the atmosphere was fun, but it seemed a little overpriced. All of the staff greeted us with kind smiles. Our meals began with a salad bar that had a good variety of fresh ingredients. We then ordered our steaks and...More

I had the New York Strip and my friend had salmon. Excellent food & service. The salad bar was massive and filled with fresh veggies.

Always a great meal with equal service at The Peddler. The salad bar has so many items including unexpected ones like bean sprouts and smoked oysters. Prices are a little on the high side but im sure are compareable to other Gatlinburg restaurants. Call ahead...More

Went there for a casual but special anniversary dinner with my wonderful wife. Don't be turned off by negative reviews. This place is a throw-back. Might be a little dated in decor but more than makes up for it in food and service that was...More

I am gluten free and my husband is vegan. Many years ago I went to the Peddler in Boone. I would love to come to your restaurant. What options would my husband have?

My sister and brother-in-law are both vegetarian and they enjoyed the salad bar and baked potato. By the way this is not my restaurant so I do not know if it is affiliated with the one in Boone. Hope this helps.
Hey there, I'm planning a romantic dinner for my boyfriend and me. Is there an area in this restaurant that is more private where we could request an intimate setting? If we dressed up would we stick out?
