Visited here last weekend after longingly driving by it several times over the past few months, as there was always a packed lot and a wait to get it.
Finally my partner and I were able to get a table, and we found out what makes this place unique- you cook food on the griddle yourself!
For many, this will be a huge turn off which is understandable. For us, it was something really special that I plan on repeating in the months that follow.
We had the chance to get out of the house and make small talk while we shard the experience of cooking on a griddle with the items brought out.
The pancakes took a bit to cook, as the griddles only come up to a certain temp for safety reasons, and it works best if you make them silver dollar sized.
The potatoes, which are seasoned and mashed before you throw them on, were fantastic!
It was a little pricey, but you're paying for the atmosphere and a new thing to try.
Service was great, and our waitress was readily able to give us suggestions when asked about menu items.
You will love this place if you come into it with fun in your heart and an open mind.

It’s not every day that a business major college student is handed a thriving business. So when Matthew Pfuntner’s mother told him she didn’t want the Pfunky Griddle family restaurants in Nashville and Murfreesboro, Tennessee and offered them to him, he was elated. That was four and a half years ago. “She’d had a bad →

I can't for the life of me figure out what the attraction is in paying to make your own food. At least if I did this at home I'd know how fresh my ingredients were etc. Not only do you have to make your own pancakes, but eggs also! Ummmm, I don't think so. Yes, the inside is whimsical in a cutesie sort of way and the service is good. Out of the five of us, only one got to make her own french toast, oh boy! My smoked turkey sandwich was good, as were the other lunch entrees but certainly nothing worth waiting an HOUR for.

We were so looking forward to going to the Pfunky Griddle for breakfast. Unfortunatey it wasn't a great experience. The pancakes were just awful (they brought us three different batters, but they just wouldn't cook!). No taste whatsoever. The bacon was good and the premise is such a good idea, but didn't work for us. They were kind enough to comp most of our bill which was appreciated, however, we probably won't ever go back.

breakfast at this place is outstanding - because you cook most of it yourself at grills set into your table! such a fun concept and ever friendly wait staff. it get's a bit warm in the height of summer - but the fun-factor outweighs anything else!

I heard good things about the pfunky griddle, but having been there myself today, I strongly disagree. Needless to say, I do not plan to be spending any more money there. I knew that the tables had their own grills, but I had no idea they don't cook the food for you at the table. When I found out I had to cook the food, I was a little taken back, obviously, why in the world am I paying you the amount equivalent to something like iHop if you don't even cook it for me?? That just seems insane to me. However, even after knowing this I tried to keep an open mind; but as the breakfast continued that became increasingly difficult. Here is why: the restaurant was filthy including the grill, the plate they brought had crumbs on it, the waiter never came back to refill my glass once we started eating, the grill wouldn't get hot enough to cook the food properly and took forever for the french toast, I brought up the issue to the waiter and he basically said that's just how it was, when the waiter brought the bacon out (the only thing they cooked) it was hanging off the plate and he sat it on the table so that half of the meat was actually sitting directly on the table (disgusting!!! if my friend hadn't been there I would have probably walked out at that point), the tables were placed so closely that I was like two inches from the person sitting behind me, the chairs themselves were rickety, wobbly, and too low in comparison to the table, I actually had to stand so that I could reach the grill well enough to cook and I'm about average in height for a woman, and to top all of that off, they wouldn't accept a coupon my friend brought because it was a holiday, what?! Who does that! The only positive thing about going there was that I got to hang out with a friend and have some girl talk. The food itself wasn't bad, but it wasn't anywhere near as good as what they charged for it, especially since they don't even cook it for you. Do yourself a favor and avoid this restaurant. Go down the road to iHop or Denny's, or for that matter, even Waffle House would be a step up in most locations.

It's a really fun restaurant for families with young children. However, the few times I have eaten at the Pfunky Griddle, I leave thinking "I won't go out of my way to eat here again." The service is always disappointing, and the prices are a little on the high side. This past time I convinced my husband we should try eating there again, and I wound up paying $30 for two people to have pancakes, eggs, and bacon. Neither our ice water nor our coffee was ever refilled the entire hour we were there, even after the waiter stopped by, looked at our empty glasses and asked if we needed anything.... and was never seen or heard from until the check was brought to us. We will probably not be returning.

Outstanding service from Kazia. Pancakes were the best. Fun for the kids to grill their own pancakes at our table grill. Worth the drive from anywhere. Adorable restaurant clean and well kept.

"pfunky griddle's perfect for families and kids. the restaurnt is a ""make your own"" pancake destination. each table includes a flat top griddle to make pancakes. different bases and toppings are offered. no alcohol is served but you can bring in bottle of champagne to make mimosas. "
