I recently went back to the Peddler and found it a little disappointing. I have been before and it was indescribably good. I was so looking forward to coming back only for my family and I all to get steak that was much over cooked....More

The atmosphere is nice if you are lucky enough to get a table by the window which happens to be alongside a stream. The salad bar was very fresh with lots of variety in the offerings there. One of their specialties was to have your...More

I am gluten free and my husband is vegan. Many years ago I went to the Peddler in Boone. I would love to come to your restaurant. What options would my husband have?

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.
Hey there, I'm planning a romantic dinner for my boyfriend and me. Is there an area in this restaurant that is more private where we could request an intimate setting? If we dressed up would we stick out?
