We go to Gatlingburg several times a year and this is our must stop breakfast. We purposefully get up early to be one of the first in line. Love the atmosphere and pancakes can't be beat.

Food is ALWAYS delicious. The only downfalls are long line, crowded dining room, and slightly overpriced. But it's a must go every time I'm in town.

The food here is good, as can be attested by the line winding down the sidewalk for blocks. But the negatives are it's rather expensive, they won't allow you to order a smaller portion and you get a lot of pancakes but no meat. They only accept cash too. Not many people carry cash anymore and they don't have a... More

The service was top notch, the prices are really good and the food was delicious. They had a huge kids and regular menu. They are cash-only but have an ATM in the lobby. There were huge lines here for breakfast so we just went for a late breakfast/early lunch and were able to get right in. We will definitely go... More

Outstanding restaurant located in downtown Gatlinburg. One of the few places I had not yet visited in town, I was not disappointed. Very affordable, awesome staff and great food.

Love this place. Amazing selection of food. You have to get there early or you'll be waiting in line,BUT it's worth it. It's tight quarters but that to me shows they are trying to fit as many people in to cut down on wait time.. Bring CASH, love that the don't take credit cards.

The food was amazing. My boyfriend and I came here for lunch on Shrove Tuesday, and had buttermilk pancakes with savoury accompaniments (though hot maple syrup is always provided!). He had coffee which they topped up periodically and the food came fast and hot. Price was reasonable but perhaps there could be a larger portion of what comes with the... More

I love the Pancake Pantry. This place is amazing. You will be able to tell from the line going out the door down the sidewalk in the mornings. I will say that even if there is a very long line you don't have to wait as long as you'd expect. The employees are amazing and get your food out quick... More
