I've been going to Gatlinburg for 40 years. I remember this place from long ago; been meaning to try it again, since the last time was probably 25 yrs ago. The location and atmosphere are great. The food was good, although I doubt there was anything "Swiss" about the Swiss chocolate pancakes. Pretty sure they were just the chocolate morsels... More

Really good food... very good service from the waitress... very crowded... definitely not an inexpensive place to eat. I believe they charge $2.40 for a side order of toast (2 pieces of bread), if that gives you any indication of the prices there. My order of bacon, 2 eggs, grits, hash browns, toast and large apple juice came to over... More

I believe anything you order will be very good. They have breakfast and lunch. Their specialty is pancakes. They close at 4. We went at a time that was not so busy - otherwise it sounds like you could have a wait to get in.

The Pancake Pantry - always a must visit for our family. It never disappoints and is always consistently good. The waitresses are so sweet and helpful. Just don't mistake the big dollop of whipped butter on your pancakes for whipped cream! :)

A Gatlinburg tradition. Don't miss this place if you visit Gatlinburg. Wonderful breakfasts and lunches. My favorite sandwich is the Dutch Diplomat for lunch and don't miss their homemade potato chips. They also serve a wonderful crock of cucumber salad on every table. Take cash because they don't take credit cards. They also have an ATM in the building for... More

My husband and I have been eating at the Pancake Pantry for 40+ years. We have brought our three children, parents, brothers and sisters and now our grandchildren over the years. Never have I ever had a bad breakfast at the Pantry. We love the food, service and the views. Looking forward to many more trips to the Pancake Pantry... More

Huge variety of pancakes on the menu. Great choices. The service was great, the food was delicious, and the portions were huge. Really enjoyed my breakfast here. Just a warning that it is a cash only restaurant.
