The steaks are always prepared well and salad bar is huge! They are very efficient in getting you in and out, almost make you feel rushed at times. Ask for a table along the creek, it's a nice view of nature.

Recommended by a local, The Peddler Steakhouse did not disappoint. Cool atmosphere with fantastic view of the river. Be sure to request a window seat or you probably won't get one. Different restaurant concept as you order your drinks and then proceed to huge, crisp,...More

An awesome restaurant. Really good menu. Our waiter, Jerimiah was really on the ball, not hovering but always nearby. Our steaks were cut right in front of us! I have visited here a few times and have never left unhappy.

We come to The Peddler any time we come to the mountains (about once a year) and it's always good! Steaks are always cooked perfectly and their grilled shrimp are fresh and delicious!

I think this is one of those places you just need to try when you're in Gatlinburg. It's a fine dining type of setting and yet not too dressy. The windows overlook the river. Salad bar is particularly noteworthy with unique items liked smoked oysters...More

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.

I have to disagree with the other commenters here. My NY Strip was bland and had a LOT of gristle rather than fat around the edge. I had eaten at the Peddler many years ago, and it was very good. Tonight's steak did *not... More
