I was so excited about eating at the Peddler...we planned a day around going there and all I can say is never again! The first disappointment was the salad bar, I had hear it was amazing at best it's average. Second disappointment the Salmon I told the server it had no taste and alm he said was we don't put anything on it...well then it should still taste like fish shouldn't it? My husband had the Ribeye medium rare which came out well done the first time...I didn't order steak because the man cutting them didn't use gloves or anything and touched all kinds of things. I could keep complaining but I won't...wished I would've went to Longhorns instead!

Ate here on a family vacation the week of Thanksgiving. Rib eye, New York strip steaks and stuffed shrimp were all good. Steaks were supposed to be medium rare but were more medium to medium well. Didn't send them back because it seemed to take quite a bit of time to get our order and didn't want to wait. The salad bar was excellent. The staff seemed to be rushing us. The man that took our food orders was not very friendly. Almost like he was doing us a favor just because he was taking them. Very over priced for the service we received. Plenty of other choices I would try before going back here.

We visited for dinner one evening and had used their call ahead seating so we only had a few minute wait for our table. It was very crowded that night. We ordered our drink and appetizer and the tray came around and we choose our steak. We then went to the salad bar which had a nice selection with fresh ingredients but was not overly impressive. All was going well but then the steak came but we had no appetizer. We were not charged for it but expect better from what is supposed to be a fine steakhouse in a resort area. We kind of felt bum rushed as if they were trying to turn tables. I guess they assume they can get away with this because their clientele is always changing but I will go somewhere else next visit.

We had a company meeting in Gatlinburg and had reservations at this place at 6:30 we got there and were told that they didn't have a table for us. They told us it would be 7 before we could be seated, we went to the bar to wait, the bar seemed under staffed and overwhelmed and it it took til almost 7 to get drinks. When 7 rolled around we went to see about our table and told it would be 7:30 before we could be seated. We asked to speak with a manager and were told that there wasn't one there. We finally ended up getting seated at 8:30, two hours after our reservation. The food was just ok, on par with a logans steakhouse except for the prices. The smoked oysters on the salad bar were the high point of my evening. I would not recommend this place to family or friends.

I'm surprised by this place not being number 1 in Gatlinburg. It was highly recommended and delivered both times, once in Sept 2009 and this time in Nov 2013. The food is terrific and well worth it. I don't like salads but both times loved the salad bar. I'm pretty snobby with food (see my other reviews) but I love this place. Service was good. Food is great. I'd give it a shot. Its the best in town
