Arrived at 9:15 for breakfast and the place was packed! We had to wait 45 minutes, it was worth it! Gluten-free pancakes for my wife in almost any flavor. I had Eggs Benedict and hash brown casserole. Very hospitable and our waiter was excellent!

Joey’s is closed on Wednesday and that’s the only way to start your morning when in Maggie Valley ; so don’t spend Tuesday nights in Maggie Valley.

We loved this place for breakfast! The service was awesome and the pancakes were delicious! Prepare for a little wait because this place is very popular but the wait is worth it!

Joey's is under new management. The food is still great, but the rules for reservations have changed. They will not seat anyone until everyone is there. If you make a reservation for 30 people, everyone has to be there before they will seat you and...the restaurant may not provide the tables that they promised. In the future, we will just show up individually instead of making a reservation.More

Been to Maggie Valley multiple times but had never tried Joeys, big mistake, their sausage gravy was the best and everything else was good also, plus wonderful service

We had a 30 minute wait around 8:00 but it was worth it. The seasonal peach pancakes were amazing. Eggs and bacon cooked perfectly. Banana nut pancakes also great. Will visit here again.

Joey’s Pancake House is literally our favorite breakfast place ever and we make a point to visit ever year. Their pancakes are amazing, I always get their pecan pancakes…a little cinnamon and toasted pecans with maple syrup yum! My hubby gets their Reese Peanutbutter Cup...Pancakes, and he loves em! My teenagers always go for the Chocolate Chip pancakes. The cheese grits are so creamy and the perfect amount of cheese, butter and grits. You have to try this place if you’re in Maggie Valley, you’ll be happy you did!More

We were just visiting (we live 4 hours away) so I have no idea how they run their business. I suggest you google "Joey's Pancake House" and go to their website. They have a Contact Us feature where you can ask them... More
