Flying biscuit's food is fine. They have good grits. They have Horrible to go service. If you order to go food be sure you are the one that placed the order and check the bags/boxes before you leave. My husband likes their food so we go

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

Must be a southern thing cause I do not get it. Lines out the door and food is like a Pillsbury on steroids.
I admit, I am not a big biscuit person but if that is your name, make it good. Not good egg dishes. I am a classic eggs benedict fan
so this is not my style.

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.

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

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!

Cons: Long waits mornings and weekends

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...

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

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.

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.

A couple of my girl friends went to the flying biscuit last weekend, for a girl?s brunch. It was the weekend when it was snowing in Atlanta, so it was freezing. We get to the location and there were people lining the street and sidewalk waiting to be seated. It was COLD!!! Briefly, my girl friends and I considered leaving but we had heard so many great things about the restaurant we decided to stick it out. I AM SO GLAD WE DID!! The food was great. I am actually not a breakfast person but I really enjoyed the food. I ordered the piedmont omelet! Spectacular!!!!!! The portions were large and the food was fresh. I like my biscuits a bit sweet, which these are not, but they were good. It was so good we made plans to go back and try their lunch.

the food was pretty good. the biscuits however were not what they were all made out to be. the wait was really really long, and when we finally got a table, it took the server forever to get our order!

I used to go to the Flying Biscuit in L5 in the late 90s...loved the food. Everything tasted so fresh, unique, and just plain ol good. But over the last couple of years I have been there sparingly, and each time, I left disappointed. Now the food didn't taste as good and I think the place was just surviving off of its reputation. The Moon Dusted Potatoes just didn't taste all that good and the biscuits were okay. And now they are expanding into a decent size chain. I guess its the inevitable...with more business comes drop in quality. I say go try it once just so you can say that you have been to the Flying Biscuit.

The biscuits are very delicious. Small space. Sometimes long waits, but it's worth it. Great healthy alternatives for usual breakfast choices. Great for Sunday Brunch.

I would highly recommend The Flying Biscuit to anyone who can appreciate friendly and attentive service and a great big, delicious breakfast! I ordered the French toast and a side of grits when I went. The biscuit was tasty, as were the grits and the heaping pile of French toast. The service was great too.

This restaurant is the place to go when you have visitors. It has a very unique, fun atmosphere and delicious food. The french toast is drizzled with a raspberry sauce & honey creme anglais and is amazing. Their portions are very large and a biscuit w cranapple butter come with practically every meals...so yummy!

I've eaten at two different locations, several times and I will not be back. If you're going to put the word biscuit in your name, learn to cook one properly. All the funky kitsch in the world cannot hide the fact that the food is mediocre at best. The new location in East Cobb is no better, the Shrimp and Grits including undercooked (raw) shrimp and overcooked (dry) grits. Looking around, I got the feeling that most were there because it is the cool place to be. Not if you like good food. Service is abysmal at both locations I have visited, the hiring guidelines seem to have nothing to do with competence or experience.

Stay away and spend you money somewhere else.

The immediate impression is one of charm. Wait was around an hour, and this was a Sat. afternoon at 2:00. We mainly had to wait because the hostess(es) apparently called our name outside, but since we were sitting inside, we never heard them. The hostess on duty never bothered apologizing, even though it added 20 minutes to our wait. Average wait appears to be around 35 minutes.
The food is unexceptional and the biscuits hard and unappetizing. It is not "traditional" Southern no matter what people say. I discovered they do not even serve jelly with their "famous" biscuits...which were tasteless, or tasted of baking soda, depending on your opinion. They were served with a spicy apple butter that some people may love, but I found to be too spicy.
Breakfast combos are served with chix sausage or overcooked turkey bacon. They do not have biscuits and gravy, either. They do serve grits. Their breakfast potatoes are roasted to a crisp, and have too strong a rosemary flavor for my taste. My turkey burger was overcooked and bland. The only bright spot was an OK Tomato Basil soup. The meatloaf or baked chicken might be the way to go if you absolutely have to eat at this place. We got the famous chocolate bread pudding, but unfortunately I found it to be bland, packy, and totally without character. If you would like to try a good chocolate bread pudding, please try the one at Pappasito's.
My final view on this place: don't go. Take my advice, and if you need to eat breakfast, please eat at J. Christopher's, which is further up Johnson's Ferry towards Roswell Road, in the shopping center for the Fresh Market. I know that there are many glowing reviews of the Flying Biscuit, but I feel that I was gypped out of my $30. I know that Rachel Ray has recommended it, but it truly is all hype. Just compare this place to places like Another Broken Egg Cafe in Destin, FL (also a small breakfast chain) which sends Flying Biscuit out of the water.

when you hear flying biscuit, you'd expect the best biscuits you've ever tasted. this place i tell ya, has got to have the worst biscuits ever, hard AND dry. the worst combos for the worst biscuits. i've been here a total of 5 times hoping that each time the biscuits would be better then before, but no, it's the same ole hard and dry. plus the lines are too long, and for what? the food is just extremely mediocre, you can get better breakfast at greasy, not-so-clean waffle house. it seems flying biscuit is more of an egg based restaurant rather then biscuits. advice for flying biscuit... you should change the restaurant name to flying eggs.

Long wait, bad service, dry biscuits, don't quite get why people wait and wait and wait. I've eaten there a few times and each time hoping to be enlightened to why everyone loves it -- ok, the black bean "love cakes" but, here's a tip, have the cook book, thought mine were better! Now that it's a corporate Raving Brands restaurant, eh, skip it.

Two Star Restaurant, ? Star Manager

First, I would like to say this is my FIRST time every writing such a constructively critical letter and that my experience at The Flying Biscuit was not a horrible one. I didn?t love it, I didn?t hate it; at best it was mediocre. However, the one experience, or better stated, the one person who caused much disharmony and nausea for me is the general manager, Heather Chisoln. Ms. Chisoln has to be the most unprofessional, ethically and morally handicapped person that I?ve had the displeasure to meet, not only from my employment history but in my entire life. She is the epitome of what a manager should not be and I find it extremely mind boggling that anyone would designate Ms. Chisoln as the leading manager, as the face of professionalism for the Buckhead location (which I might add the location itself speaks sophistication) of The Flying Biscuit, let alone any restaurant.
Her lack of people skills is not only blatantly obvious but loathsome and detestable at all accounts. She masquerades in a rehearsed faux smile that even a 10 year old can detect, to conceal her unhappy life and the vastly diverse insecurities she possesses, secreting all of her negative energy upon her staff while creating discord throughout the ?harmonious? reputation of the Flying Biscuit. With her infinite inappropriate condescending remarks, ranging from ?Well, it?s kind of a common sense thing?, to ?wait, you graduated from high school?, one must question how she acquired employment period! Although meant to be a joke, I for one took her comment regarding my high school education rather seriously and offensively. I am a college graduate with knowledge, skills, and experience beyond her wildest dreams. I also have the common courtesy to filter out what may be socially or personally offensive to a person, an attribute she does not possess.

Salute! I was one of the many patrons that waited over half an hour after the scheduled opening time to dine in on Thursday morning, May 17th, 2007. We were told that it would originally open up no later than 7:15am but it wasn't until 7:37 approx. that it actually did. Upon opening, a tall, short cut, red -headed young man blandly greeted us. There was a customer standing in front of the door with her hands filled with bags. He rudely pushed it, and let it close back on her. When other patrons addressed him, he dismissed us as if what we were saying was of no importance. Then once my guest and I picked a seat, he threw the menus down on the table in the most disrespectful way and I know that it was intentional because he made absolutely no attempts to pick it up. I come here all the time and the customer service I experienced today was absolutely unacceptable. No customer or person for that matter should ever be treated that way. I would really like to remind you guys that no matter how popular you may be right now, it is in fact the customers who make it so. The same way word of mouth spreads singing your praises, it can also do you harm. I really suggest that your establishment reevaluates the importance of keeping the guest happy.

We've been a fan of the orginal Flying Biscuit in Candler Park, since the beginning, when it was birthed by the Indigo Girls. Had not been in several years, but went back recently. The lines and wait, were not as long as previous times. But once inside, the familiar was back in focus. Loved our tatooted server, with her casual flair. I ordered my fave, eggs over easy/ atop black bean cakes. And of course that wonderful signature biscuit. And they still had the homemade apple/butter on the table. We really enjoyed ourselves. But will "Success Spoil Rock Hunter", we mean the Biscuit. Plans to turn this into a chain, bother us. Time will tell, we hope not. We've never liked dinner here, stick to the Breakfast!

I've had friends rave about this place for years. They were wrong. There were only guests at 3 tables when we arrived, yet it took over an hour to get our food. I haven't eaten white bread in over 30 years, and that's exactly what their biscuits taste like. Ugh. The chicken sandwich was dry and tasteless. The waitress couldn't answer ANY of our questions. Six of us were squeezed into a space for four even though only three other tables were being used in the whole place. The vegetable soup was terrible. Cold air (38 degrees outside) was leaking through the cracked windows. I don't get it. I will never ever ever be back.

I really have a heart for this place. The people are great (a little snotty but that's cool for their locations), the helpings are unmatched, and other than brunch on Sat or Sun - faster than some.
They present to us eaters a healthier variety of their take on soul food. I love the idea and I am just unnerved that for as long as they have been in buisness, and the owners involved, they have not quite mastered their own technique. Everything is a hair too starchy even with the provided greens, the handmade yet cardboardy cookies, and the great menu of juice & liquids.
AAAHHHHHH!!!! SO CLOSE :)
Of course as always I enjoyed the burrito for breakfast and the potatoes are o.k. too.
Hope you enjoy and eat well if nothing else

Pros: The Food

Cons: Well, the Food - Parking - Lines

.

This spot is good for people who eat healthy and especially good for vegetarians. Since I am a meat eater I was somewhat overwhelmed by the oatmeal pancakes which I tried but didn't like. However my vegetarian friend loved all the meals because they all catered to him.
A cozy place but on the weekend expect a long wait.

I used to hate this place but now I am converted and I love Flying Biscuit. Not only their biscuit is great, everything on the menu tast great. Just please dont go to the one in midtown but go to the one in candler park. Midtown location is terrible and thats the reason why I was against this place.

Pros: Food, Price, Atomospher

No breakfast is worth 1 hour wait. But their food was good, especially their pancakes! Try to go on weekday.

Tasty, healthy food at reasonable prices! Sure, the weekend brunch is crowded - and that's why I work my meal in after the rush! Go weekday nights or weekend late afternoon (breakfast is always available, but dinner, drinks and desserts are great, too.) The bakery is next door and convenient for take-out. Service is decent and the atmosphere is eclectic. You have to eat there at least once!

I have only eaten there a couple of times but both times the food was delicious. One time I had a very flavorful salad with lots of interesting and tasty greens. The dressing was very good too. The next time I had a big biscuit for breakfast and that was outstanding. I highly recommend a visit to the Flying Biscuit.

I wish less people had discovered thisplace. It's delish but I don't go there because it is so crowded...I wish they would relocate to a larger space...Plus service when it's not crowded is still just so-so...though the food is amazing!

Avoid the crowds and get takeout. Piedmont omelet rocks.

probably the healthiest meal you can get downtown. everything here is meant to be organic, and fairly nutritious. the food isn't quite as great as some people claim, but it is good, and more than enjoyable. the biscuits are fresh, and very tasty. they go well with the jam/jelly that they make themselves. try to avoid during prime lunch hours because it is very busy.

Pros: biscuits and jam, value

Cons: long waits, service could be better

I think this place is great. Breakfast is always good, but I think many of the lunch and dinner dishes are even better. If you have only been for breakfast, avoid the weekend wait and go for lunch or dinner. The Flying Biscuit regularly gets voted "best biscuits" by the people of Atlanta; however these are hands down the hardest, driest, worst biscuits out there. Unfortunate for a place with "biscuit" in the name. Biscuits aside, this is normaly a 'can't miss' place to eat, and at a reasonable to good price. In the future when the Raving Brands copycat franchises start popping up around the countryI am sure the quality will nosedive, except at the two original locations (Candler Park and Midtown) which as I understand it will remain under control of the original owner(s).

Went to the Flying Biscuit for the first and last time last evening with my wife and daughter. Host was very friendly, but that is where the good ended. All of the wait staff were in halloween dress so we thought we were in for a good time. Had to wait a long time before we were waited on; when we were brought water, it was in plastic cups. Did not get the brie appetizer that we ordered. The coffee I ordered was only lukewarm and did not get asked if I wanted a refill. My wife's meal was to include a salad that she never received. Oh yeah...Flying Biscuit....we had to ask them for our biscuits and almost wished we never got them. Very hard and dry. Trying to pay to get out was another ordeal. Save your money and go to the Waffle House. The entertainment and food will be just as good.

It's too bad the place has gone to portion control and things are steadily getting worse as a new corporate entity takes over. Everything good must come to an end and this is the end of something really good.

As an Atlanta native, I have been dining at the Flying Biscuit for years. Up until the beginning of 2006 the quality had begun to slip. Biscuits were sinking (like a brick) instead of flying, soysage was dry and tight and the creamy, dreamy grits had become a bland nightmare. Ever devoted to local restaurants, I decided to give them one more chance. Thank goodness I did. There was a complete turn around in the quality of the food. As always, the service was friendly and quick. This is again one of my favorite local spots.

PROS: Biscuits, Grits. Soysage!!
CONS: Inconsistent but greatly improved

With the addition of fixed price Fridays wine or beer pairings (depending on the week ) and the inovation and imagination of the Chefs Dinners at the Biscuit are nothing short of AMAZING ! And they offer fantastic nightly features ...
The recent Red Snapper over creamed basmati topped with lemons , capers and onion was so intoxicating ; basmati scented with lavender and fennel with capers , pine-nuts and golden raisins ! And the Chi wilted spinache ! Need I say more ? Astounding.
A second feature was a beautiful Yellow Fin tuna steak sandwich drizzled with their signature tamari aioli ; medium rare and beyond perfect!
The Flying Biscuit may have always been the place for breakfast , brunch or lunch but dropping in at night to sample some of the dinner fare is more than worth the trip.

Flying Biscuit has an interesting well varied menu. There are items that are vegetarian, vegan, and more. We went there for dinner. My beau had the turkey meatloaf and I had the warm chicken salad. We both enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Even more than that, my beau loves stopping at the bakery side and buying biscuits and sweet treats to take home.

PROS: Small restaurant, unique and interesting food, tasty baked goods
CONS: Small restaurant, parking can be a problem.

I like the Flying Biscuit but I do not think it is worth the wait for brunch on the weekends. There are other places that nearby that have tastier food and faster service. If you want to try the Flying Biscuit, go there for dinner instead. As for brunch, I recommend skipping it and going somewhere else.

Very friendly service, healthy food & amazingly cheap prices! The weekend brunches are crowded, but there's a reason for that! Go to the Biscuit at night-- you can still get the same breakfast items, or a 3 course meal (app, entree, dessert), complete with 3 diiferent wines for $25! Anywhere else in ATL the wine alone would cost you that much. Check out their bakery next door-- take home dozen biscuits, a latte, some muffins, cookies and T-shirts. Cool people, cool space- highly recommended.

I think this place is packed because there is not much breakfast places in town. We could not get the right food to our table in 45 min. We were served the wrong food three times. The server did not fill our coffee even once. OJ was bad and srever was fighting with the kitchen employee in front of us, food was below average and why should I go back?

Editorial from

The Candler Park location is the company's original spot, and its popularity has never waned. Locals pour in for chicken sausage or huge organic oatmeal pancakes, although these seem a bit heavy. The smoked salmon scramble seems less…
