We went here on a Tuesday or Wednesday morning about 10:00 & got right in. When we left there was a long line so I guess mid-morning is a good time to go. The kids menu only serves 2 pancakes & our 3 grandchildren were positive that wouldn't be enough so they ordered off the adult menu which comes with... More

We visited the Pancake Pantry at the recommendation of some friends and we are so glad we did! My husband got the chocolate chip pancakes and I got the blitz pancake. Both were incredibly delicious! Im not a huge fan of crepes but wanted to try the ricotta filling so the Blitz was perfect for me! Also, we got seriously,... More

Great food, fast service, cash only but they have an ATM onsite. French toast was a huge serving , blueberry pancakes were a hit. The line to wait wasnt too long but they seated us quick.

After visiting Gatlinburg a few times, we knew it was high time to try the Pancake Pantry. We went on a Tuesday morning, praying the lines wouldn't be as long as on the weekends. We were seating within a minute or two (this was around 9:45am, but by 10:30 the line was out the door!). Food: The menu was really... More

Driving past several times and saw lots of people waiting in line so decided to give it a try. Disappointing table placement and service. Food was okay, definitely lots of choices and it is constantly busy. Won't be back tho.

It was okay food but way over priced! We paid 27$ for 2 of us to eat! 5$ for a side of bacon, waffle was okay but the amount of food you get isn't even filling!

We visited on a Tuesday around 11:00am, with the usual line around the building. It is not a pleasant atmosphere and certainly not accommodating to the customer. You feel as if you are being herded in and out like cattle!! Hurry up and eat and mooove out!! The seating is so close and packed in that there is literally no... More

We come here every visit. Lots of variety and have never been disappointed. My favorite is French toast, but there is something for everyone - even lo carbers. Very affordable and good portions. Good soup and sandwiches at lunch too.

Let's start with what was good: lots of selection. They have a wide variety of breakfast choices. I ordered the pecan pancakes and my wife ordered the blueberry pancakes. They are small. I'd say they are 4 inches in diameter which is small for pancakes. They did give 6 pancakes, however. The pecan syrup was good. I felt they overcharged... More

This is one place we go on a regular basis when we are in the area. Only been for breakfast - go early as the lines only get longer and longer. It's worth the wait, but if you go early, you can park on the street right in front until 9 AM. !
