Yummy breakfast.....

But cranky staff. Nothing can be substituted. Corn cakes are yummy! Come with a very very large appetite! Nice central area if you are staying in town.

Husband and I ate here for breakfast one morning and LOVED IT! We got a lot of food, it was almost hard to eat it all. But who can complain about that right? The pancakes were excellent! I got an omelet, husband got eggs, bacon, etc. Both meals came with a stack of pancakes. We just got basic buttermilk pancakes,... More

Not only the best pancakes, but great service, very fast, amazing whipped butter, awesome tasting tap water, pleasant staff, very clean restaurant. No wait at all. Only complaint was that my sons chocolate milk cost as much as his whole breakfast.

The Pancake Pantry in Gatlinburg, Tn is open for breakfast and lunch only. The lunch is good, but go for breakfast, it's the best. They offer a large variety of pancakes and crepes, but my favorite is Morning Star. This dish has ham, cheese, hash browns and eggs piled high with a side of pancakes. Make sure you come hungry....

I have traveled down to Tennessee 3 times in the past 3 years from southern New Jersey, and every time I make it a PRIORITY to get to Pancake Pantry! Do not let the long lines scare you, it moves quickly and those pancakes are worth every second you wait! I tried an Omelet during my last visit, and it... More

Best pancakes ever! I've been coming here since I was a child and it's my favorite restaurant in Gatlinburg. The line outside is usually long but moves quickly. I highly recommend the sugar and spice pancakes, caribbean pancakes and the regular ol buttermilk pancakes-best in the world!

The one tip I can give you is to GET HERE EARLY!! The line gets long pretty quick. Even if you have a long wait, though, it's definitely worth it! I don't know how they make their pancakes, but they are the BEST IN THE WORLD as far as I am concerned! My husband and I will eat here at... More

Everything you've heard is true. Don't go to Gatlinburg and miss this restaurant! The food is outstanding. Cash only but there is an ATM on-site.

This seems to be one of the more popular pancake places in a town filled with them. We enjoyed our pancakes, but didn't think they were anything special. We liked the pancakes at Sawyer's Farmhouse better.
