Good food, crowded seating

Visited for a late breakfast around noon, there was a line wrapping around the building. We only waited 10 minutes to be seated as a party of 10. Tables are a little small and they are all very close together. I had the Morning Star, I highly recommend it...also, plain ole buttermilk pancakes are... read more

Try to get there early, but if their is a line don't worry as it moves quickly. The pancakes and crepes are terrific and there are also eggs, bacon and other choices if you aren't a pancake eater. There is a good and inexpensive children's menu. Service is good and food comes out quickly. There is also a lunch menu... More

I've been eating at the Pancake Pantry for 40+ years. It is a good restaurant, and the line out front moves quickly, so don't let the line deceive you.

Every bit as good as their cousin's location in Nashville, the food here is bar none. Don't let the line scare you. It moves quickly; the smaller the group you have, the faster you will be seated.

They have a good variety of pancakes to choose from. Everybody in our party enjoyed their meal. It was very busy when we went but we were served in a timely manner.

We eat here every time we are in the smokies. Food is great and the service is just as good. For pancakes, it's a little pricey but, the experience is worth it. I docked them a star because they only accept cash.

Fast service, small portions for the price and didn't see sign on door that said cash only. So don't forget your cash if you come here! PS they have an ATM next to the cash register.
