We ate here 3 days in a row while on vacation. All the food was delicious and the service was top notch. I had omelettes and biscuits and gravy each day. I could eat there everyday. Hash brown casserole was phenomenal. Good coffee too. Get there early! By 8:30, there is a huge line/wait to get a table.

I am not a "breakfast person," but the food at Joey's Pancake House is so good that it converts me into one every time I visit. I recommend arriving early to get your name on the list (speak to the nice, older lady sitting on the stool by the entrance). It gets crowded quick! Everything on the menu is great... More

The Great Smokey Mountains National Park is a grand place and it requires lots of energy to conquer the hills and dales. Eating here in the morning is exactly what such a task calls for. Staff and management are great, and the food was perfect for everyone....too bad breakfasts don't include desserts...theirs looked oh-so-good!@

A local institution open 60 years. Go there and you'll know why. Not unusual to have a short wait to get in but definitely worth it.

A few months ago someone told us about this great breakfast place in Maggie Valley so we decided on a road trip to check it out. Everything was 5 star from the time we were greeted until the time we left. The food is fresh and cooked as requested. Will definitely visit this restaurant in the future.
