We visited on a Saturday morning, so we did end up waiting in line for nearly an hour. Once inside and seated, we did wait a few minutes for a server to come over. But after that everything was good...food came out hot and delicious. I had Chocolate Sin...crepes with chocolate ganache, raspberry compote and whipped cream...very good! Husband had... More

This place is a must do if you are visiting Nashville and appreciate a good breakfast. Get there early to avoid a massive line. We were leaving the restaurant at about 9AM on a Sunday morning and the line went around the block. When we arrived at 7:30AM, we were about the 5th party in line. Their assortment of pancake...

We arrived around 9:45am and waited a little over an hour to be sat. The wait is completely outside, the wasn't too hot but we did sweat. Once we were sat the server didn't seem interested in us. I am a service over food person esp when paying a tip. The food was good but nothing amazing. If there was... More

While standing in line to get in just know the pancakes are worth the wait! Blueberry pancakes were awesome and my friend had the French toast - all super delish!! Their two flavors of syrup were great! Quick and friendly service and not expensive.

I went to Nashville with 40 couples (80 people) for a Husband & Wife Summer Retreat. We were there a week and on July 7th our coordinator decided to take us to brunch at the Pancake Pantry in Nashville. I sat at a table of 8 people. The waitress came and took our orders which were not complicated, and 1... More

I've visited pancake pantry many of times the food is good & so is the service. However the coffee tastes like it's instant not freshly ground. It was so bad I'm tempted to bring my own next time from home.

We got to the restaurant about 7 a.m. There were only about 12 customers there when we arrived, but shortly afterwards more people started showing up.. We had the Sweet Potato and the Banana Bread pancakes with their home made cinnamon cream syrup. They were delicious. Parking around back is free for the first 1 1/2 hours.

If your wanting to go to a Nashville staple, this is the place to be. Drive through the Vanderbilt campus to get to the restaurant and then eat some of the best pancakes ever made...much better then ihop I might add. Beware, get there before 8 am otherwise you will be waiting in a line outside to get in.

Stopped in about 930 am on a Tuesday, just my wife and me. We only waited about 10 minutes to get a seat. After sitting down it took about 10 minutes for a waitress to come over to take our order for drinks, which was 2 coffees. She left our table and went to another table and talk to that... More
