Stopped into Pine State Biscuits around lunchtime on a Saturday. It was busy - and it should be. The food was savory and delicious. The portion matched the value. The service was quick. Be aware that it is not a place to linger - the restaurant was too busy for the number of tables. Well done. We will be back... More

Warning: Saturday mornings are very, very busy! I wouldn't recommend to people who are impatient or uptight! Okay, despite the fact that the wait is not uber short (we waited about 15 minutes), this place is amazing. It is typically Portland and has a hipster/organic-y feel. I decided to eat blueberry cornmeal pancakes, but my hubby ate a Chatfield, which... More

Dropped by here for breakfast with some friends on a trip to Portland. Ordered the Reggie Delux and and Hash Ups. The Reggie Delux was super delicious, and the hash browns were good. Service was ok...nothing worth mentioning...ambiance was cool as well. Food: Excellent Service: Average Ambiance: Simple

This place has a unique Portland atmosphere...you bus your own tables; get your own silverware; and if all the tables are booked you must wait outside (no loitering inside)...it's right out of an episode of Portlandia. That being said the food is great. I had the "Reggie Deluxe" a fried chicken breast with bacon and gravy on a biscuit...delightful. The... More

This was our one and only breakfast out, while in PDX for a long weekend. WOW, this place! I'm almost embarrassed at my order- the club biscuit, which had fried chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato and (uh hem) Bleu cheese dressing. It was delicious, but oh my....oh so filling. (Duh, right?) my husband had the Reggie deluxe. Ridiculous. The sausage gravy... More

I came here with a colleague while visiting Portland; he said it was a MUST. It seems to be a theme in Portland that anywhere you eat is a "must-eat" type of place! I love the creativity of Pine State Biscuits, though I'd probably like it more if there was more than one vegetarian option. I had the Egg over... More

The hype is all true! Again, go during off-times to avoid lines. It is a small place and you get a table in the same order you place your order at the counter. Food is phenomenal! How do these Portland restaurants out-do the southerners for biscuits and gravy!? I recommend the Reggie Deluxe for all your sampling needs!

Tried this place before after seeing it on the Food Network. Biscuits are scratch made, fresh and fluffy, offered several ways. The ones with fried chicken and bacon were awesome. Scrambled eggs are not their strong point. We hit there about 9:30, line went down quickly, but we couldn't find a place to sit, so asked them to change the... More

Wow, these are the best biscuits and gravy that I have ever had. Well worth the drive to Portland. Saw this place on Diners, Dives and Drive-ins. It sure lived up to the rave... If you are looking for some very tasty biscuits and gravy this is the place.The biscuits were light and fluffy and the gravy was very flavorful...... More

We had breakfast here after I ran the Ft Vancouver run, so I was hungry! =) It was completely worth the wait in line. It took about 20 minutes to get inside to order. They don't operate like a regular restaurant where you sit at a table and then order your food. What happens is you walk up to the... More
