From YUMMM! the Metro Pulse Restaurant Guide:

Amid all the glitz and glitter that can be Gatlinburg, there’s a real and living sense of history and tradition, and nowhere is that more true than at The Peddler Steakhouse. Gatlinburg’s “Steakhouse Tradition” is an exceptional place to eat that’s literally founded on decades of local history. The building was constructed in 1958 from five original log cabins and was the home of Charles “Earl” Ogle Sr., a descendant of Gatlinburg’s first grocer. Squared timbers, cement chinking, and native stone are still visible inside the restaurant, and its dining tables overlook the Little Pigeon River. The house itself helped maintain a tradition of offering quality provisions when it became the Peddler in 1976. For the last 37 years, this mountain steakhouse has offered impeccable food and unimpeachable service in a warm and inviting atmosphere that reflects the incredible natural beauty that surrounds it.

Custom-cut steaks are a hallmark of this destination restaurant—and they’re not custom cut for the restaurant, they’re hand cut for you at your table. You pick the cut and the portion from naturally aged beef that is grilled to your liking over real Tennessee hickory charcoal. As if that weren’t enough to set your mouth watering, the menu also features fresh, local English Mountain trout, prime rib, salmon, and marinated and charcoal-grilled chicken.

The Peddler’s entrées include your choice of a variety of traditional steakhouse side dishes, hot, fresh bread, and the feast that the Peddler modestly calls the Salad Bar. With over 40 different vegetables, cheeses, and other irresistible delicacies, this is an “all you care to eat” taste of paradise. Don’t forget the dessert options, which include Key Lime Pie and Hot Blackberry Cobbler with vanilla ice cream, as well as Kahlúa Crème Bruleé and Kristi’s Warm Chocolate Cake.

The restaurant also includes a full bar and lounge that opens half an hour before the restaurant does, and the wine list presents well-chosen selections at all price levels.

At its heart, The Peddler Steakhouse represents the best of casual fine dining and is an easy-going and family-friendly place that inspires generations of locals and tourists alike to return again and again. It’s not hard to see why people love the place enough to make it part of their own tradition: there’s a lot of beauty to appreciate at the Peddler—both outside and in.
