It was a very delicious meal. They have a great salad bar. The rolls were also very delicious. When you order, they bring out the steak that you will eat and cut it in front of you. I got the stuffed shrimp and it was delicious. The sauce on the shrimp is amazing. My boyfriend got the 12 oz ny... More

We had to wait a bit because we got there early and they don't open until 5. After loading up on the salad bar, we split a filet Mignon.. We don't understand why early comers get sent to the second row and the best seats by the mountain stream are reserved for those who come later, even though we asked... More

This is one of the best steakhouses I've been to. The steaks are cut right in front of you so you know exactly what you're getting. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and were so tender. The salad bar comes with each entree. There is such a wide selection on the salad bar and it could easily be a meal itself.... More

We go to the Peddler in Boone NC every year for Valentines Day and when we went to Gatlinburg to celebrate my birthday I was excited to see that they had a location there. We were very disappointed, it was nothing like Boone. While the salad bar is large, we missed the onion soup on this bar as well as... More
