The Pancake Pantry is a "must-do" every time my family visits the Smokies. Their pancakes are always a treat. Your family will leave will full bellies and smiles. Be prepared to wait for a table and bring your cash. They don't accept credit cards.

Every time I travel to Gatlinburg, I make it a point to go to Pancake Pantry. Their pancakes are unlike any I've ever tasted. They have a wide variety, but I tend to stick to the basics. On my last visit, I had the Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Pancakes served with whipped butter and warm syrup with a side of hash browns.... More

We love the breakfast, especially the pecan waffle that comes sered covered in pecans and a little pot of hot pecan syrup with more pecans! Omelette is always great and so are the cherry crepes.

We absolutely love Pancake Pantry. We visit the one in Gatlinburg everytime we vacation in the Smokeys. Wonderful breakfasts, and for what you get, I don't feel overpriced. The crepes and pancakes are fabulous, and portions are huge. I agree with some of the other reviews, that the hostesses and servers could be a little more friendly. We have never... More

We had an enjoyable meal both days that we went for breakfast. On Saturday there was a short wait to be seated. Both hostess and waitress were very friendly. It is a fast paced resturant for the waitresses, but the food was excellent, as well as the service. The only drawback is that this restaurant is a CASH ONLY establishment.... More

We arrived and had a very short wait time, however the hostess who seated us was unpleasant and RUDE. The other hostesses were rushing around like mad people as if the building was on fire(slamming dishes around with attitude) the ENTIRE time we were there, it was very stressful in close quarters and it wasn't even a line waiting sooo........
