Home cooking at it's finest. Love the Hash Browns...a house special. Always get the French Toast. Hubby likes his omelet and pancakes. We will be coming back again.

My family and I are local residents. We have gone to Joey's for over 30 years. My son, and now his children, have spent Easters, Halloweens, Father's Days and just plain lazy Saturdays and Sundays, getting the day started at Joey's. We've never had a bad experience.

Actually booked our hotel because it was right across from Joey's. Figured it would make meals super easy. Checked in only to find out they're closed until April. Bummed.

Little gem of the valley. If you are looking for a traditional country breakfast with all the trimmings, this is your place. Everything was cooked fresh and great tasting. We were a large group and they were very patient and quick with the service as well.

You can't miss Joeys' for the best breakfast in area. Even though the crowds are massive in season the wait time is not unreasonable and it's worth it!

We went here for our Honeymoon breakfast and it was so delicious. The service was great and the food was delicious. I can't wait to go back again!

We ate here 3 days in a row while on vacation. All the food was delicious and the service was top notch. I had omelettes and biscuits and gravy each day. I could eat there everyday. Hash brown casserole was phenomenal. Good coffee too. Get there early! By 8:30, there is a huge line/wait to get a table.

I am not a "breakfast person," but the food at Joey's Pancake House is so good that it converts me into one every time I visit. I recommend arriving early to get your name on the list (speak to the nice, older lady sitting on the stool by the entrance). It gets crowded quick! Everything on the menu is great... More

The Great Smokey Mountains National Park is a grand place and it requires lots of energy to conquer the hills and dales. Eating here in the morning is exactly what such a task calls for. Staff and management are great, and the food was perfect for everyone....too bad breakfasts don't include desserts...theirs looked oh-so-good!@
