Best pancakes in the smokies

Pancakes are amazing, but the wait is long. Lots of choices once you are seated, and the service is quick and correct. It is worth the wait if you have the time.

Didn't realize that they closed at 3, got there at 3 minutes to and were so gracious to let us eat. This in itself was amazing. Had there strawberry crepes and husband the carribeean pancakes. Deeeelicious. I can see why they have been in business so long. It is a cash place only so be aware. A must eat at... More

I've been going here since I was a kid and keep going back. It's always busy here but you normally get seated quickly and food comes fast. I had the waffles this time which were OK but pancakes are better. Definitely our tradition in the Smokies!

I suggest going in around 11:30 and you get a choice from Breakfast or Lunch. The Lunch menu is awesome Thanks Marina Tylo

It came highly recommended, but we were not impressed. There is no handicapped accessible restroom. The service was prompt, but we were surprised that each dish was delivered as it was ready. As a result some in our party of five were virtually done before everyone was served. The pancakes were excellent. The bacon was just right. The patty sausage... More

Love breakfast food and pancakes are their specialty. I loved my pancakes with blueberries and my newlywed wife had just as yummy orange marmalade pancakes. Service was excellent even with the restaurant slammed. Hot food and nothing was wrong with it.

If you want lots of choices for pancakes, this is the place to go. There was so much to choose from that we all had a hard time trying to figure out what we wanted. The service was great. There was a long line when we got there, but they are great at getting people in and seated quickly. I... More

We have been going to this Gatlinburg landmark for more than 30 years. After dozens and dozens of meals, the food has always been consistant. Great food, in a great atmosphere, served by people who have been employed for many years. The only problem with this restaurant is they don't take credit cards. A small price to pay for a... More
