We had a reservation for 11:30 (and apparently, so did 8 others). We were 10 minutes early for our reservation, and were finally seated at 12:20. When we left at 1:30, one of the original 11:30 reservations was finally being seated. When anyone asked about...More

My friends and I arrived at 11:50 a.m. for a noon reservation. We waited an hour and twenty minutes and were finally seated at 1:20 p.m. There were only 2 people working the tables and 1 person, the owner, in the kitchen. Lunch was good,...More

The Wild Plum is an essential lunch destination when we visit the Gatlinburg area. Their standard menu items are excellent and we always look forward to their daily specials. Reservations are highly recommended especially during busy tourist seasons. Visit their website for current information.

This is a perfect destination for a lunch with friends. The food and tea were fantastic from beginning to end. Start with a cup of their hot tea! It has a fall spice flavor and is served with an orange slice. We had the hot...More

Very disappointed in the lack of Southern Hospitality and without that welcoming touch why bother. Made reservations for a special birthday lunch. Evidently reservations don’t really matter because we waited another thirty minutes outside in the cold before we were even acknowledged. At least someone...More

The Lobster Puff (and everything else we had) was delicious! Staff was friendly and atmosphere was charming. The best restaurant meal that we had in Gatlinburg! Notes - Reservations are a must! Credit cards are not accepted.

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.
