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

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

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

We went to the Peddler Steakhouse for dinner on our first night in Gatlinburg. We loved that they do call ahead seating as we were worried there would be a pretty long wait being a busy weekend in Gatlinburg. We arrived on time and were...More

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.
