    The Pancake Pantry is a Gatlinburg tradition for good reason. I've sampled many different things, and all were equally delicious. My favorite? The sweet potato pancakes. They're absolutely amazing!

    Amazing pancakes, best I have ever had. The eggs, bacon and grits were just as amazing at noon! Good service. They don't accept credit so make sure you have plenty of cash!

    This place blew my mind! We had a party of 6 & were seated immediately even with it being packed inside! I recommend the Pecan Pancakes!! I was BEYOND satisfied! Absolutely amazing. I will be back!

    Sweet potato pancake! The cinnamon cream syrup it comes with is awesome! Be warned, it's a cash only establishment, so no debit/credit cards or checks.

    The sweet potato pancakes with cinnamon cream syrup were delicious! that cinnamon cream syrup must have crack in it, because we were all fighting over it at the table!

    The Old Buttermilk Pancakes are always great, however I recommend the Sugar 'N Spice or the Wild Blueberry pancakes. They'll really put a smile on your face if you truly enjoy pancakes!

    I would seriously drive 2 hours for the peach delight then drive back! Hashbrowns are awesome too! It's a tradition in our family to come here. Yeah it's cash only but WHO CARES? It's the experience!

    Do NOT order the bacon and cheese omelet. Awful. 2 egg "omelet" with a slice of American cheese + maybe one slice of bacon crumbled ON TOP. the omelet wasn't all...with anything. Sad.

    Well the wait staff is clearly angry at tourists and the disdain is thinly veiled. Management is not much better. The food is adequate for a low end tourist trap. All in all give this a miss
