We had the Pancake Pantry checked off as one of the places to eat at on our 4 day vacation stop in the Smoky Mountains. First of all I was very taken with the décor of the Pancake Pantry. I am thinking to myself, this beautiful classy atmosphere is a pancake house? Wow! Second, I thought the coffee was very... More

We love the experience of the Pancake Pantry and the tradition of going there more than we actually love the food. It's great food, but it's breakfast like every other pancake place in the area. However, it's the oldest pancake company in Tennessee, the service is great, and it's a neat place. We go every time we are in Gatlinburg,... More

This place has been where I ask my family to take me every year for my birthday. It's so delicious, and the atmosphere is great. The lines can be crazy if you don't go early, but it is so worth it. You can't visit Gatlinburg without eating here. I recommend the Georgia peach crepes and hot chocolate.

My boyfriend and I ate breakfast here on a Friday morning. We got there at 6:45 am due to reviews saying there were lines early on. Guess what? There was no line and we were first in the door! I had the bacon/cheese omelet with the pancakes. I've had better omelets for sure but they had the best pancakes hands... More

The food was good but nothing out of the ordinary. Service was great and fast seating even with a line outside. The interior was very cramped and I heard others talking about this flaw. The hostess ask me to move three times while I was in line to pay so she could get down the isle. The door was propped... More

After hearing the rave about this place AND the LONG LINES to get in, plus the people standing in line professing their love for this place, I'm very sad to say it was a bit of a let down. On the plus side, when we got in the very very very long line that wrapped around the building, a hostess... More

we've been having just wonderful breakfast fare at Pancake Pantry since 1970 and we've never had a bad meal. The coffee and juices have never changed in their high quality. The staff stays with this restaurant. Over the years, our waitresses have remembered our faces and have aged just as we have. There is not much of the breakfast menu... More

Long lines outside move quickly, so don't skip this place b/c of the line outside. Food was indeed stellar; all 4 of us had pancakes + sides. A little pricey, but service was stellar. Other reviews have mentioned stroller "parking" as an issue; we too had issues storing ours and no one seemed to want to help. Would I go... More

We always make it a point to eat here when we visit the Smokies. We always enjoy the food and the service is decent for a very busy place. The problem on this visit is that this place is not baby friendly. Everything is jammed packed in the restaurant. I tried to take our stroller in and was advised to... More
