“Like fingernails on a blackboard”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

If you are looking for a place where all the managers are white men in suits and all the wait staff are white women, this is the place for you. This place just gave us the creeps. Restaurant patrons should not overhear waitresses complaining to the hosts that they are feeling slighted in the number of people being set at their tables.......nor do those same women deserve to be subject to this unfairness.

“BEST PANCAKES!”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Went here with family around 830 on a weekday and there was no wait! The service was quick and the pancakes were probably the best I've had. Even if there would have been a wait, like others have reported, it still would have been well worth it!

“Super Quick and absolutely Delicious!”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We were a party of 10 and we arrived at Pancake Pantry at around 8:15. We had reservations for horseback riding at 10:00 so we were a little rushed. We were seated almost immediately and our orders were taken within 5 minutes. The food was fantastic, the staff was fantastic and we arrived for the horseback riding a half hour early! You do need to know that they only accept cash. There is an ATM on site. The pancakes were moist and delicious. I had the caribbean pancakes, my youngest had pigs in a blanket, my middle son had the caramel apple crepes (to die for!!) and my oldest son had the raspberry compote crepes. Everyone had a great time and we were so thrilled with the super fast, super efficient and friendly staff! We cannot wait to visit Gatlinburg again so we can have another wonderful meal at Pancake Pantry!

“Sweet potatoes in a pancake?!?”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

The weekend wait here is terrible if you don't get there early during the busy seasons, but it's worth it! The sweet potato pancakes are absolutely delicious and I HIGHLY recommend them!

“A favorite breakfast destination in Gatlinburg!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

This has been one of my most favorite places for breakfast while in Gatlinburg for many, many years now! Now that I am in a wheelchair it is a little tight getting to a table but the courteous hostesses are very helpful at finding me a nice spot. A very wide and delicious variety of choices are offered and all that I have ever tried were huge portions of great pancakes and sides. By all means this is a wonderful place to start your morning off before you start exploring the town.
