Restaurant backs up to the woods and a beautiful creek. There are large windows affording a lovely view. Food was excellent, with a huge salad bar. Definitely a great place for a relaxing dinner after a long day.

My husband and I visited The Peddler Steakhouse last week while on a mini-vacation. We chose The Peddler as a celebration dinner for my husband's recent Master's Graduation, as we have been here several times and it never disappoints.

We sat at the bar until a riverside table was available and ordered a drink. We were starving and I had seen fried pickles spears on the menu (one of my favorite foods) and we ordered some. Oh. My. Goodness. I have had fried pickles practically everywhere they are available, but these things were to die for.

Once we got a table, we ordered steak and baked potatoes. Simple and delicious. The steak is always perfectly seasoned and always tender. You can't go wrong.

Sure, it's a little pricey, but it's worth the extra few bucks for the atmosphere and great food....heck, we even went back the next night just to get a beer and fried pickles!

We loved everything from the salad bar with endless choices to the juicy rib-eye cut right at the table. The fried pickle spears and hot rolls were awesome too. We were even lucky enough to sit at a table on the creek! We'll definitely visit again in the future.

Wife, grand-daughter, and I were looking for a reliable steak ... and Peddler provided. But only reliable. Parking was very difficult. And on entering we felt like we were being expertly "handled" by real professionals that cater to hordes of tourists looking for a high-end dining experience (at least higher than most Gatlinburg dining venues). With reservations we got a fair table (when much better ones were available); servers were highly competent. Our server brought our wine and we then entertained ourselves at an excellent salad bar (I experimented, improvising a nice smoked oyster egg salad); a second waiter (the steak specialist) came by to take detailed instructions. Filets and accessories (wild rice, potato, vegetables) were very good but detailed instructions seemed ignored (we both like Pittsburgh style but our two filets were quite different). We were troubled by a long wait for the bill. All things considered, we had very good food although the experience as a whole could have been more palatable. On departing there were dozens of people waiting, lucky we thought of reservations.

Service, atmosphere & food. Within walking distance of our hotel. Certainly one of the top restaurants in North America.
