My wife wanted to eat at The Peddler because she had not eaten there but heard a lot about it. We were staying the night in Pigeon Forge for our anniversary. We thought we would eat supper at The Peddler after walking around at The Island. When we got back to the room we called for the "Call ahead seating".... More

This is a very busy restaurant in Gatlinburg, well-known and has a long-standing reputation. My wife and I dined there this evening, signed up for the 5PM seating and got a very nice table by the window overlooking the river. The view was wonderful, the service efficient and pleasing, and the salad bar was absolutely top-notch. However, the steak was... More

Our absolute favorite place to eat of all time. The filet mignon and salad bar are to die for. I love the romantic feel of this place, you can dine right on the Little Pigeon River and the steak peddler will cut your steak table side. For dessert, you must try the chocolate cake or blackberry cobbler. And request honey... More

The best part of the peddler is their salad bar which you get to go get before you order your entree and if you have hungry kids this is a major bonus! Plus it is plentiful with almost anything you could want for a salad this is fresh stuff not bagged salad mix! The also have a great French Onion... More

My wife and I have visited this restaurant every year since 1998. We always eat there for dinner on our last evening in Gatlinburg. Service has always been above standard as well as the food. Steaks are a little pricey but very good. The salad bar is outstanding and to me is the main attraction along with sitting beside the... More
