Log Cabin Pancake House

In April of 1976, Ronnie and Linda Huskey opened the Log Cabin Pancake House beside the Pigeon River at the South end of Pigeon Forge. The Log Cabin Pancake House is the longest serving, family owned restaurant with family continuously working the business in Pigeon Forge. The Conner Family, which in the early 70’s owned a motel and convention center, needed a restaurant for their convention and motel guests, so they offered the Huskeys a long-term lease to move from their previous location into the small building next door to the motel. Some of the employees from those early years are still with the family and others have been there for many years. John Huskey and Ricky Brackins were little boys who came to work with their mothers and stayed to bus tables, become cooks and then managers. Yvonne King came to work as a waitress in 1974 before the move, moved with the business and became dining room manager. She still holds that position. Diana Huskey Coleman, who was a tiny girl when the Huskeys opened their first business, has grown up and is moving into her mother’s (Linda) position. The Log Cabin Pancake House serves from 6:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and retains almost the same breakfast menu as was original. Breakfast is served continuously during those hours and at 11:30 a.m., the lunch buffet is rolled out. The restaurant is open year round for breakfast but discontinues the lunch buffet during the winter months: January through March. Breakfast consists of a variety of pancakes with the usual chocolate chip, pecan, blueberry cakes, but they also use a special French crepe batter for the roll-ups with blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, apples, etc. inside. They also still have the old fashioned cornmeal and buckwheat cakes and they are famous for their French Toast Royale. They have searched out the best country ham they could find, and the country sausage and gravy hit the spot over the hand-rolled biscuits. The greatly experienced cooks really know how to cook eggs to order or can turn a tasty omelet. The lunch buffet consists of homemade soup, cornbread and rolls, fresh salad bar, that famous peach cobbler and four meats and vegetables cooked “from scratch.” Some folks think the fried chicken is the best around and it is on the bar every day along with country ham. Service is warm, friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is welcoming and “homey.” If you are looking for really good food in a true to the area, old-fashioned atmosphere, you will like the Log Cabin Pancake House.
