It's a bit of a drive from downtown and it was difficult to find but we had a great late lunch. Their afternoon hours are short so best to call to make sure they are open. We had a nice homemade soup and then spit a huge salmon sandwich! Quaint and different. Service was great and food was delicious. Worth... More

They make their own tea and it is very delicious! You can have it served hot or cold! It is very quaint with different, but very good food and desserts!!! Moderately priced. Located in the Arts and Craft Community!

Wow, what a treat. Off the beaten bath near the artists' loop, incredible food, and fabulous desserts. Seriously, what a gem. Too bad they close for the winter!

So, you probably think, like my husband did, that this pace is way too lady-like and dainty for a manly man of 6'4" and a corresponding appetite. You would be wrong. Yes, the (delicious) tea is served in dainty porcelain teacups, and the tiny cafe tables have lace tablecloths, and the staff all wear old-fashioned "Little House on the Prairie"... More

What a delight to find this place. It was off the beaten path away from downtown Gatlinberg. We chose the lobster pot pie. Delicious.

Wonderful for an old fashion type lunch. A bit pricey, but the ambiance & setting are worth it & the food is prepared & served beautifully, & quite generally wonderful.. If your looking for a fast food, or run of the mill restaurant, your in the wrong place.

Love the Wild Plum Tea Room! The Lobster Pie, the Salmon Burger and the Tomato Bisque were supreme! We come here every trip to Gatlinburg.

Open only for lunch. The Wild Plum Tea Room has awesome affordable lunchon plates. Highly recommend having their wild plum tea with lunch and save room for their homemade deserts. It's located on Buckhorn, along the 8-miles Gatlinburg Artisans and Craftmans shopping loop.

I had the Lobster Pot Pie. It was full of large pieces of lobster and artichokes. My husband had the salmon burger. It was HUGE with large pieces of fresh salmon and the sauce was yummy. Go prepared to wait on a table as they are small with limited seating but it's worth the wait. They are only open for... More

One of our favorite places to eat when we visit Gatlinburg. If you get the chance try it. Everything on menu is homemade and oh so good! It is hard to make a decision. Lobster pot pie, yum. Plum ice tea a must, salmon burger, I could just go on. And not to mention the desserts. Save room!!!! We thought... More
