Landmark restaurant re-opens after devastating flood

G’s Pancake House Restaurant will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, July 16,  at 2 p.m. to mark the grand re-opening of its 803 South Riverside Drive location, which has been  renovated  from floor to ceiling following severe flooding in May.

The restaurant was completely ruined when overtaken by  the great flood that hit Clarksville Montgomery County and much of the Riverside Drive Business District in May. Apart from more than four feet of standing water inside the popular eatery, the owners had to tie their outside walk-in freezer to the building to keep it from floating away.

The new interior of G's

Just over two months later, the ceilings have been refinished, the walls rebuilt, and new equipment and furnishings have been installed; while it looks like an entirely new restaurant inside, the menu and the coffee hasn’t changed. Longtime patrons are already pouring for those breakfast and lunch buffets and other popular fare on the G’s menu.

G’s Pancake House has served the Clarksville and Fort Campbell communities with delicious food and their signature pancakes and coffee for almost half a century since founder, Gene Sueiro, a Vietnam veteran with the 101st Airborne, first opened its doors.

Many a newcomer to this military town has made G’s Pancake House their first dining experience because of its contributions and support toward the community and the Fort Campbell military base.

The public is welcome to join the community, elected officials and the entire G’s Pancake House Family at this grand re-opening event. There will be plenty of gifts, prizes and free pancakes and coffee all day long.
