First had to wait 75 minutes for a table. Not a big deal as we have really enjoyed the Peddler over the years. The salad bar is the only reason I will ever come back. All the veggies are also very fresh and tasty. Also,...More

Once again, this delivered as one of the best spots in Gatlinburg. Prime rib was cooked perfectly and full of flavor with the au jus. Didn't leave without a giant piece of cheesecake!

This place is great. Steak was cooked perfect to order and was very tender. The salad bar was included and very fresh and gourmet. It was really dark inside could use just a bit more light.

The Peddler is still great food and the most marvelous salad bar with the greatest deserts but the restaurant needs to be updated. The place looks rundown. The tables wobble and chairs are uncomfortable. It just needs a facelift. It also needs more bathrooms. They...More

When we go to the Smoky Mountain area, for over 20 years, we eat here. In a group or dinner for two, the service is always topnotch and the steaks and desserts are the best in the area. Love it

Very over priced for what you get. The salad bar is good, lots of variety and clean. The Ribeye steak was very bland. Our baked potato was very small and over cooked. Table bread was good. Ambiance was poor. We've been a few times in...More

Worth every single penny. My filet mignon could have been cut with a fork it was so tender. Fast service despite being incredibly busy, waitress was kind and attentive. Clean restaurant. We were sat next to an incredibly obnoxious family but service completely outshined any...More

Not sure because someone else picked up the check. But I remember they were not cheap and really not that outstanding.

I have seen wedding groups downstairs before but it isn't a private area. I would call and see what they can do for you in one of the upstairs areas.

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.
