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.

disappointed

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! But....my 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...

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.

Great!!

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.

Surviving off its reputation now

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.

Excellent Food and Service

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.

Best french toast, long lines but worth it!

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!

Overpriced, Overrated and I'm Over It

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.

Flying Biscuit - Marietta - not recommended!

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.

worst biscuits ever

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.
