For many years we have watched the crowds line up outside the Pancake Pantry - All the way around the building people stand and wait to get into this eating establishment...... Not until Christmas time did we finally get in line to see what all the fuss was about. There are so many pan cake places in Pigeon Forge and... More

GREAT pancake house with LOTS of variety. Service is always personable and friendly. This is a staple stop for us every time we are here. Servings are good size and the price is reasonable. We highly recommend!

The lines are long for a reason. We love this place! It is a must stop for us during every Gatlinburg trip. There is so much to choose from. We have tried many different types of pancakes at the Pancake Pantry, and have yet to be disappointed.

Every time we visit Gatlinburg I insist on eating at the Pancake Pantry. It's not uncommon to see a line (sometimes extremely long). I'm not sure how pancakes can be so different, but theirs are. I also love their Wildberry Crepes. Service is always friendly & excellent. The Pancake Pantry is a Gatlinburg tradition.

I'd eat here for every meal if I could. Try the Pigs in a blanket. The coffee is great as well. You don't need to go anywhere else in Gatlinburg

Food & service was wonderful. There's usually a line to get in so be ready to wait but parties of 2 seem to get in quickly. This is a CASH ONLY restaurant but they do offer an ATM inside for your convenience.

Through about 30 years, I have probably eaten at the PANCAKE PANTRY 30 to 40 times. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. AMAZING pancakes, hearty breakfast foods, wonderfully different sandwiches and some of the best Cucumber salad in the world! I will admit that I am in a rut, having ordered the MORNING STAR probably 7... More

These are some of the best pancakes! I have been coming here since I was a child with my family, and it is always a meal I look forward to. The food is always good, and consistently excellent service!
