We heard some grumbling while waiting in the half-block line about waiting just to eat pancakes - but we loved our breakfast. I had eggs and bacon with a side of half an order of sugar and spice pancakes. My husband ordered the apple walnut pancakes with a side of bacon. Half an order was plenty of pancakes for us. They bring warm maple syrup to the table - and also cinnamon cream syrup for the s&s pancakes. Yum! Our bacon was crisp, as requested! And the water for my hot tea was really hot - a rarity at most restaurants. We had pleasant, attentive servers, and the seating hostess worked the line outside giving realistic estimates for the remaining wait, noting group size and answering questions. Glad to have made it to this famous Nashville spot. I’d go back to try some of the other pancake options. They also have omelets, sandwiches and salads on the menu - but why?

Gone there over 40 years. New pancake mix is really gummy. Food cold.

The service staff is really great and speed of orders has increased.

The pancake mix has always come from Gatlinburg in past -- doubt they're using the same quality

Pancakes are yummy! This time tried the savory corn cakes and they were fantastic! Everyone else had sweet options and all very happy. The peach pancakes seemed to be the favorite. Definitely worth the wait. We went at 9:30 on a Wednesday and had to wait 30 minutes.

Forced my spouse to try once again waiting in line for pancakes. We’ve attempted in years past but gave up before actually getting into the building. This time, we visited on a random Wednesday around 11am. It still took us 25 minutes to get seating, which was to be expected, but it took another 35 min to get our food after ordering. The wait seems excruciatingly long when you’re famished. Once they arrived, the pancakes were fabulous (I had the Caribbean and my husband had one each of the Georgia peach and Cherry Supreme), and the bacon was delicious. Excellent food, but really, it’s just pancakes. Service was great even though it was slow. Glad to check it off our Nashville list.
