“Skip it!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2011

We went here on the recommedation of a friend. What we found were ridiculously priced kids breakfasts and fruit-topped pancakes that tasted like they spooned the topping out of a can... an expired can. My daughter loved the biscuits and gravy, the rest of us were not impressed. Even the water was bad, it tasted like stale smoke and bleach. :/

The restaurant itself has a neat rustic feel to it, but I can't say much else nice about it.

We have since visited the Pancake Pantry in Nashville, and come to find out, that was the restaurant my friend had meant to recommend to us and gotten the name wrong. That will be where we eat on our trip this year.

“Decent but not amazing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2011

It was a nice cozy place with nice staff but the food was just "ok" nothing extra special or amazing about it. Prices were moderate. My kids ate up and that's what mattered most to me before we headed into town for the day. I would go again if someone wanted to but honestly I would rather eat at IHop down the road.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2011

We ate here one morning. Food was good but nothing to write home about. Also, everything costs extra. For $8 you should get mpre than 3 pancakes. Service was good but price was a little high for what you got.

“Great start to your day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2011

This was a great start to our morning. The restaurant embodies the Gatlinburg we miss. This town used to represent a bygone mountain culture. The food here is reminiscent of the types of meals that were available at all of the locally owned restaurants. This is an excellent place for your family to start the day!
