We love eating at The Peddler when in Gatlinburg. The steak is always delicious-the filet mignon and the ribeye are especially delicious. We have also had the trout. The sweet potato casserole is wonderful (does have coconut). The salad bar that comes with the entree...More

This restaurant is so close to elite but just can't quite nail it. It is absolutely the best restaurant you'll ever go to with a salad bar, though. We were greeted by a friendly server who brought drinks and took our appetizer order. The Crab-stuffed...More

Probably the best steak I ever ate. Steak peddler visits your table. Wonderful salad bar. Tables by the window have tranquil view of the Little Pigeon River. Our favorite Gatlinburg restaurant.

We both had the filet. Perfectly cooked, juicy and delicious! One of the best I've ever had. Salad bar is good with a large selection, the peppers and tomatoes were fresh and tasty. Greens were of high quality. Dressing? Tasted bottled, but it was good...More

The Peddler Steakhouse is a new tradition for our family trips to Gatlinburg. Our most recent visit was great as usual. The service was good and the food was even better. The salad bar had a big selection, the steaks were awesome but the desserts...More

Be sure and ask for a downstairs by the river table. It's worth the wait. Steaks are brought to your table and cut to order. And boy was it good - cooked perfectly. The salad bar is awesome as well. Service was outstanding as well....More

I'll still give this restaurant a five star even though their phone system is crap. My wife called 88 times in 45 minutes to get through. The phone system either would cut us off, tell us to call back, tell us to hold, tell us...More

Good salad bar. The steaks were good as was the trout. Excellent service. A bit pricey but everything in Gatlinburg is a little pricey

Very good food and service. A little over priced I thought. They have an all you can eat salad bar with every entree, which I don't think I could do more than 1 trip to the salad bar. The bread was very good they bring...More

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
