The Pancake Pantry serves a variety of different pancakes and crepes... but that's about all it has going for it. So, they have all these different kinds of pancakes, but none of them are particularly good or special - in other words, it has a wide variety of mediocre pancakes. The place is close to Vanderbilt and is within walking distance of many locales. Parking is hit-or-miss. In short, the Pancake Pantry is not worth a special trip, it can be safely categorized as run-of-the-mill.
I agree about the parking. The lot is very deceptive. It's owned by Value Parking and they are very aloof when handling issues. The food was great, nothing too notable, except the hash browns.............which were the best I've ever had. The servers were a bit smug and the place had a feel of arrogance about it, but I would return, especially to take a bat to the parking meter..........I was there for less than an hour!!!!!
We have been eating at the Pancake Pantry in Gatlinburg for 20 years and so when we went to Nashville we thought it would the same. WRONG!!!! It was aweful. We have waited in a line longer than that at Gatlinburg and it has never taken more than 30 minutes. We waited for over an hour in Nashville. The wait staff was sloppy and not good. I got the same pancakes that I get in Gatlinburg and they were not even close. Our family was very dissappointed. We will not return and I will let the Gatlinburg location know that Nashville gives them a bad name!
Obviously this guy and his driver did not see the sign as you walk out of the parking lot to pancake pantry. You have to go to a machine now and get a ticket. You get an hour of free parking and its for all the stores on that blocks storefront. The sign also mentions that it is out of the hands of pancake pantry and the other stores. So its not their fault. They also dont validate. I don't think its all that hard to keep track of how long you have spent in the restaurant, walk back out or have someone in your party walk back out, print another slip and replace the one in your window. geez man, really.
My name is William Heimermann. I am handicapped and am a patient at the V.A. Hospital. My appointments there are relatively frequent and, with each morning appointment, a visit to Pancake Pantry has been a tradition. I have 5 children and 19 grandchildren who have been your customers for years. My children are in the music business and often meet their business aquaintances at the Pantry.
This morning (March 31st)my driver dropped me off and proceeded to the parking lot. We had an enjoyable breakfast, as usual and when I was picked up at the front entrance, I was handed an envelope with a $15.00 parking fine.
This is ridiculous and irritating. So much so that I will not risk going to the Pantry again. I am sure that my family members and friends will also follow suit.
Oviously I will refuse to pay the fine and will welcome a small claims lawsuit
FYI: My last two receipts - 3/26/09 Record # 206
3/31/09 Record # 130
Sincerely and with regrets.

i used to love the pancake pantry. it was well worth standing in line for. but the last two times i went there i found hair in my food. the server didnt seem to concerned and neither time did i receive an apology or atleast the item taken off my bill.
I am disappointed!! 3 Years ago this was a wonderful place to eat pancake, but this time I found the syrup watery coming from a bottle as vinager. Since when, should syrup have this texture? The last time I went to this restaurant, the 3 stacks of pancake's were large and fluffy, now they look like silver dollars and chewy.
Second, the bussboy sat us in a small, narrow table a few inches away from another couple, who we had to listen to their private conversation. Finally, the price was outrageous. Next time, IHOP will be the place of choice.
Food was ok, but its breakfast, so how far wrong can it go? Waits are common on weekends. I've had both good and bad service experiences. Parking on weekdays can be a problem. Ambience is unremarkable...laminated menu type of place. In my opinion, grossly overpriced and overrated except that its something most new to Nashville do just to say that they've been there. Wouldn't particularly recommend it.
