Good Food!
Stopped by here with the grandchild and wife for breakfast. This place was not near as crowded as the other Gatlinburg restaurant spots, probably because it is closer to out of town. The Eggs Benedict was delicious and the kids menu was CHEAP!!!!! The wait staff was very attentive to our needs and the food did not take very long to get on the table. The only craziness about the place was the lady taking the money was also the same person sitting incoming guests. This caused a traffic jam and the checkout experience was not up to par. May be back if in the area.

Some things never change
My husband & I had a late breakfast at my favorite place in Gatlinburg & were delighted to find that although many things have changed in Gatlinburg over the years, the Log Cabin Pancake house hasn’t & is still the best place for breakfast. The wait staff is friendly, appreciates you being there; checks with you to make sure you have plenty of everything you want/need; food comes out quickly & every bite is delicious!!
