Perfect spot for breakfast alone, brunch with friends or dinner with boo.

The biscuits must be made with some type of mind control agent because they are remarkable. The chicken sausage gravy is like the sunlight in your room after a storm. Simply refreshing. The service is great and the decor makes me want to sit on a cloud.



I dream about their biscuits. ...

I dream about their biscuits. The Flying Biscuit is my favorite brunch spot all around in Atlanta. Those grits and biscuits are enough to make anyone drool. The only downside is how it's always so crowded so be prepared to wait.



My fav place to eat

Wish it was still a best kept secret as it's always just too packed now and a long,long wait. AT least they do great take out! BEST grits in the world!

Long Lines, Medicore

Well let me start by saying that it's solid in terms of breakfast in Atlanta. By solid I mean okay, better than fast food, but not good enough to stand in line for. If you go there on a Saturday, that's what you'll be doing so prepare your self for that. And order the biscuits and gravy...Eggs are watery. Oh and it's very noisy so prepare yourself. On the flipside, in the winter they do serve coffee to people standing out side in line which I think is a nice customer service jesture.

High Flyer is the way to go

One of my favorite places to eat in Atlanta and now OTP. Great food at a reasonable price.

After visiting their website and reading about them in the Atlanta guestbook, I was sure I had found a delicious vegetarian friendly restaurant. However all their vegetarian products (i.e. tofu scramle, garden patties, even potatoes) were cooked in the same pan or shared on the grill with their meat products!
Lastly, it took over an hour to be seated after being told that it was about a 20 minute wait.

Fantastic, Healthy Food

I am a huge breakfast lover and I love the omlettes at The Flying Biscuit! The wheat biscuits are better than the white ones! favorite thing is the grits! White cheddar and whipping cream----you can't beat it!

Some of the best breakfast on earth!

I am completely in love with this place. I eat at the biscuit 3-4 times per month, but would happily eat breakfast at this local favorite every day if I could. The french toast is incredible, and the biscuits are the best I have tasted, possibly because of the incredibly addictive apple butter served with them. Dont worry, no matter what you order on the breakfast menu, you get a biscuit and apple butter, so no one misses out! Food is very consistent from day to day and month to month. Service is attentive and quick, but as friendly as can be considering the work load these poor servers have on a busy morning. Beware, bacon and sausage lovers- they only have chicken sausage and turkey bacon, but in my opinion they are far better than their pork counterparts. Go check it out on a weekday morning if you want a shorter wait. Ill probobly be the guy sitting at the counter!

No more BISCUIT with salad entree! That's the new economical policy at flying BISCUIT!!!

Last week, to my jaw-dropping surprise, the waitress announced to me that Flying Biscuit doesn't serve anymore the complementary biscuit with a salad entree order. Is it one of the consequences of recession? Anyway, if this is so, you lost a faithful customer Flying biscuit and many more to come, or, rather, not come any more...

Good food, iffy service

Food is good, kinda weird sometimes. Black Bean cakes are awesome. The service can be bad, hard to get seated.

yum to everything on the menu!

lets start with the delicous grits! smooth and flavorful with just the right seasoning. I lovegrits that are not grainy in texture and these just melt in your mouth. absolutely everything is an eclectic spin off of basic southern breakfast fair yet the subtle twists make you feel that you are eating healthy while over endulging in gloriously rich sumptous food.

Great Food, lackluster service

I love the food here. The biscuits are tremendous, as are the sandwiches. I usually get the 3B chicken sandwich, and it's what I recommend to everyone else. It's a good thing I don't live very close, or I'd be fat off of these biscuits and sandwiches. I have tried some of the casseroles and was less impressed, and some things I just didn't like at all. They have some good choices on the menu, but just be aware that not everything is as good as the best items on the menu. We regularly get the fried green tomatoes appetizer as well, and it's a good start to the meal. The only drawback at this location is the lackluster service. It can take a while to get your order taken. We've had two negative dining experiences there at the hands of a waitress named Olive. The first time she delivered our food to the wrong table, who ate it (and made us wait another 30 minutes for food without explanation). The second time, it just took forever to get our order, food, and check. I know that Flying Biscuit was bought out by Raving brands, but at locations like this they really need to focus on friendly and attentive service. Frankly I will continue to get takeout here but will probably avoid dining in. Nothing ruins my appetite like poor service.
