On U.S. 441 South through Gatlinburg, bear right at light 5 on to River Road – the middle option. A hard right will take you to the Aquarium–straight ahead takes you on up the Parkway. The Peddler is on the right on River Road past two more traffic lights, next to the Bearskin Lodge and on the river. You may also take the by-pass around Gatlinburg when traffic is heavy. Just before entering Gatlinburg, exit the Spur (the road between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg–U.S. 441) at the sign on the right: “National Park via Gatlinburg By-Pass” and drive 4 miles over a scenic overlook. This will bring you out above Gatlinburg in the National Park. Just follow the signs to Gatlinburg–less than a mile. Turn left when you enter Gatlinburg at light 10 on Ski Mountain Road. At the next light–one block–turn right on River Road and we are on the left next to the Bearskin Lodge. Back road directions to the Peddler Steakhouse from Interstate 40, Exit 407: Exit I-40 at Exit 407 and follow Hwy. 66 into Sevierville. Turn left in Sevierville onto Hwy. 411, the Dolly Parton Parkway. Drive east on Dolly Parton Parkway past Sevier County High School on your left. Turn right on Pittman Center Road (Hwy. 416) – right lane must turn right 1 mile past the high school. On Pittman Center Road, keep going straight, even when the signs say that 416 turns to the left. Continue on what has now become Birds Creek Road and later becomes Buckhorn Road as it winds through the scenic countryside. It will dead end at Hwy. 321. Turn right toward the west and follow Hwy. 321 into downtown Gatlinburg. Bear left on the Parkway (U.S. 441) at light 3 in downtown Gatlinburg to light 5, then bear right on River Road and follow it past 2 lights to The Peddler Steakhouse on the right. You’ve now missed miles of possible traffic tie-ups along the main highway through Sevierville and Pigeon Forge and enjoyed the countryside.
Literally built upon tradition, the Peddler Steakhouse building is constructed around the C. Earl Ogle cabin, the home of a descendant of one of Gatlinburg’s first pioneer families. Nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains, we specialize in great steaks and wholesome, flavorful food. Serving naturally aged steaks cut to your specification at your table and grilled over real Tennessee hickory charcoal, our menu also offers fresh trout and chicken. All entrees include our generous, fresh salad bar, and be sure to save room for our delectable desserts. Open 7 Days a week: 4:30 pm, Saturdays; 5:00 pm, Sunday-Friday
