We always try to visit Pancake Pantry once during our trips to Gatlinburg. We went at 8:00 on a Saturday morning and there was already a short line. We did not have to wait long before being seated. Our server was friendly and service was prompt. The selection is large and the portions are huge. We did not need lunch... More

Don't let the line fool you! You wont wait long. There isn't waiting room inside so even though the line is way out the door you will only wait 15-20 min and it is worth it. Many types to choose from and so good! Helpings are huge so you wont need lunch after breakfast! Service is fast and friendly!

I went before 9am on Saturday and there wasn't a line waiting to get in. When I left the line was out the door around the building. I went solo so there was no waiting to be seated. They were seating parties of 2 as they came in as well. I had the buttermilk pancake, 2 egg and bacon meal.... More

After visiting Gatlinburg many times during peak season we had always wanted to try the iconic Pancake Pantry. I am glad we didn't wait in a peak season line. Our server was not rude, but was short and hurried. There are many other breakfast places we prefer over this one. Thought it was pricey for what you got.

Way overhyped. We have on in Nashville. Not good either. IHOP is better than this place. Go to Crockett. Or Log Cabin.

We went to Pancake Pantry in February 2017 (off season), we were seated right away, our waitress was short with us, but not rude. We got our drinks right away and the food came up in a reasonable amount of time. The peach crepe was good and the plain pancakes were fluffy and a must have. Also on our list... More

We love the Pancake Pantry and have been going there for years! Everything we have tried has been super amazing! The ham and hash omelette is to die for as well as the pancakes! Highly recommend stopping here while in Gatlinburg!

We visited Pancake Pantry with three other families. Great service! They accommodated the food allergy in our party. The service was fantastic!! The only downside is that they are a cash only establishment. There is an ATM in the restaurant, though. Would go back!

Been eating here for over 30 years. Food and service is always excellent. Prices are a little high for pancakes, however, my opinion: there are no better pancakes anywhere! The Continental Sandwich is also very good with homemade chips, onion soup and delicious pickled cucumbers.

My family of 6 went to eat brunch today and was not to happy with the service. Our waitress was great but the hostess (blond) was very unpleasant and never smiled. After our lunch I went to pay for my meal and she said it was cash only. With a family of 6 the bill was 65.00. Normally I do... More
