We visited during Covid so we had to wait for our table outside. The wait was very short, like maybe 10 minutes tops and there were a ton of people waiting. When we were shown to our table, we noticed all employees were wearing masks...and the tables were spaced to allow for social distancing! We ordered and our food took less then 10 minutes to arrive! It was the BEST Pancakes I have ever tasted. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Gatlinburg!More

We were told that this was a place to go and it certainly was. It was a little confusing at first regarding the check in procedures. You had to jump in a line and they give you a number. Once your table is ready -...they call your number. We waited almost an hour and the food was worth it. It was funny to stand outside the cute chateau windows and watch people on the inside very leisurely sip their coffee and eat their pancakes. Everyone was in line - COLD - and just wanted to get in and have some of that coffee. lol But once we did sit down - OMGosh - delicious. Our waitress was an ole Marine just like my husband. Her son is serving in the Navy. Our teen order the sugar and spice pancakes and said they were excellent. Hubby and I both ordered 2 different types of crepes and split them. He ordered one that was a special. It had cherries and chocolate drizzle. They were very good. I ordered the peach delight crepes and they were out of this world. When in the area - we will be back and it would be awesome if we had the same waitress. She was fantastic.More

We were there at 8:00 on a Tuesday and a Wednesday with no wait. By the time we were finished there was a very long line. Food was delicious. We've been coming here more than 20 years and we will be back again!

Please, do not go during the pandemic. We were sat next to a family not even a foot away from our table. The food was great like it always is, but my family was beyond uncomfortable with the lack of safety precautions being taken. It...was the first time during our trip that we felt in harm’s way.More

I had my first visit there on Sunday! My son recommended I order the peanut butter syrup for the pancakes. That was a great idea! I really enjoyed it.

One of the best places for breakfast! Service was superb and food great! This place does it right every time! There is a reason they have been in business for so long!

We normally don't eat breakfast when we go to Gatlinburg but I saw the Pancake Pantry online and just had to try it. I'm so glad we did. Our seating time was almost immediate although they were obviously crowded. Our waitress was spot on and...we had our food within 15 minutes. I had never ate crepes before but they looked wonderful and they were. My absolute favorite now. We will definitely be back.More

Pancake Pantry is the 1 place we visit on every trip to Gatlinburg. (We have been going for over 40 years). The food never disappoints - our favorites are blueberry and sweet potato. We always arrive when they open at 7 am and walk right...in. The service is always won. We had called before this visit to check on their COVID policy and were told they were seating at 75% capacity. I could not tell any difference in the number of people inside. This was a big shock to me because they have always seemed like a family friendly and conscience business.More
