We have been here multiple times a year for 25 years. I refuse to miss it. A Gatlinburg staple and the food / salad bar backs it up. Try to get a seat over the water. NOTE- begin calling at 4 to place call ahead...More

Kinda dated in its theme! The food was excellent. Must try the Portobello Mushrooms stuffed with a crab and lobster mix. Bartenders were not friendly, but the way they worked was better than efficient. I would return on a special occasion!

This place is "old school", but in a very good way. The food was outstanding, the service was even better. The salad bar was amazing and had a gahzillion choices...I loved every bit of my dining experience. We'll be back.

Party of four, for dinner. Very large and high quality salad bar optional. Excellent menu selections for appetizers, steak and seafood. We tried the shrimp and crab stuffed mushrooms and they were exquisite. Fully loaded shrimp/crab seasoned to perfection and topped with a delicious crab...More

The ambiance of this restaurant is very nice but the food was less than worth the price. My husband and I wanted to visit something more of specifically Gatlinburg and had been told by a few locals to visit The Peddler. They were very accommodating,...More

I make an annual trip to Gatlinberg just to eat at The Peddler. It's just that good. Been doing this for 30 years and have NEVER been disappointed with the food or service. The best salad bar in the entire U.S.

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.

I have to disagree with the other commenters here. My NY Strip was bland and had a LOT of gristle rather than fat around the edge. I had eaten at the Peddler many years ago, and it was very good. Tonight's steak did *not... More
