Love this place!! My 3rd visit & every time it has been great. All friendly staff. Always keeps drinks full & plates cleared. Well worth every penny & the wait! We always call ahead. Highly recommend!

This is the best place we ate at during our stay. The atmosphere was great, they had a fantastic all you can ear salad buffet, and the steak was cooked perfectly!

Great experience but for the price--not really worth it. Glad we were able to experience once but really just average to me AND need to update restaurant to be considered fine dining. Salad bar is excellent but I am thinking Salad bar at a fine dining establishment?

Went on a Saturday night and used call ahead seating. But were not seated until an hour and a half past the time we were given. If we hadn't been waiting with such a nice group of people, we probably would have left. So I suggest you think about NOT going on a Saturday night, especially one so close to... More

My wife wanted to eat at The Peddler because she had not eaten there but heard a lot about it. We were staying the night in Pigeon Forge for our anniversary.
