The wait to dine here is always 20-30 minutes, but the pancakes definitely are worth it. I got two apple walnut compote pancakes, and they were amazing! I got a side of bacon and eggs which were average. My wife was extremely satisfied with her...More

I grew up going to the old Pancake Pantry before they built the new space. This is truly a staple for the town. If you visit Nashville you must visit Pancake Pantry. These are still the best pancakes I have ever had even after all...More

The line is a little intimidating but it is so worth it. Our table had the pancakes, eggs, hash browns and it was all great.

The line for Pancake Pantry is often an hour. People will even wait that long in the rain. I have seen Keith Urban getting a to go order. It is delicious. Get the hash browns. They are like no other.

I've eaten here three times and have never once been disappointed. The first time was on recommendation from a friend who lives in Nashville, and it did not disappoint. The pancakes are a must (the plain ones, that come with the combo plates). They're seriously...More

Don't know if it was a special weekend, but came on two weekends an hour after opening. Was able to get in within 15 minutes. It did start to pickup around 8-815. So I would say come before 8
