Each visit to Gatlinburg is not complete without a visit to the Pancake Pantry. Everything we have tried is great!

I ate here as a kid, and then again 16 years ago. To be honest I'm not a huge pancake fan but love this place. We arrived 10:00am on Sunday and there was no wait, by the time we left the place was packed. You must order the pancakes, of course. The pancakes are overpriced and although there are a... More

We like bed and breakfast lodging but never opt for that when we go to Gatlinburg, because we have to eat every morning meal at Pancake Pantry! My favorite it the Marvelous Blintz. This place smartly has it's way of handling crowds: your will NOT be seated until your entire party is present and ready to be seated (and order).... More

We have visited Pancake Pantry many times over the last 40 years and have never been disappointed. The pancakes are first rate but the sandwiches on the lunch menu are what we always go for.

At this restaurant they have many of choices of pancakes, but if you want the bacon and eggs you cannot have any of the special pancake flavors only two out of around 30. Can't pay extra. Can't switch it to order of pancakes with sides. Slice of cheese not... More

This was not a good experience. Place was absolutely over crowded and underserviced. The food was average at best. Small unnoticeable sign on front door says cash only. One overpriced underserviced ATM was available when it worked.

Folks the food is good, the crepes are no longer hot like they used to be in the past, but heres my main beef. They dont accept anything but cash. Now that in and of itself isnt such a bad thing, and they DO provide an ATM right inside for this reason....but guess what, THEY OWN THE ATM, which means... More

Come early to avoid a long wait! They do not take credit cards so bring cash or use the on site atm. Try the silver dollar pancakes, or the chocolate chip pancakes!

The food here is delicious. The Carribean pancakes and pecan waflles are to die for! It is a little crowded and noisy at their busy times. They only take cash!
