Be prepared for a crazy long line but it moved fairly quickly. You will need to grab a table on your own after you order but there is always space - picnic tables outside (enclosed in winter). You also clean up your own table to help out. Great bloody Mary's and obviously amazing biscuits. The famous Reggie biscuit sandwich is... More

After I first saw them featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, I've been wanting to go to Pine State for a few years now - but their locations don't have good parking and walking is an issue for me. But I went with a friend the other day and was so glad we did. I had the biscuit with fried... More

I thought it was a grease ball of stick to your stomach food. Didn't care much for it and walking out I felt so gross. My stomach hurt. The line wasn't worth it.

Referred to Pine State Biscuit by the concierge at the hotel, a great recommendation. Easy parking on the street out front. Very nice and helpful staff, great suggestions. The food was fresh, hot and well prepared, very low key. Good portions for the price. Was busy but not over crowded on a Saturday late morning. Fast service. We ordered pancakes,... More

While out exploring the fascinating Alberta district we stopped for lunch at the Pine State Biscuits. Despite being a cold week day, the place was very full. The food is hearty and not expensive. The flavors are interesting. But... I was bothered by the staff delivering plates with bare hands, one hand on the top of the food on the... More

I've eaten at Pine State many times, both the Alberta location and the new one at 11th and Division. The food is equally good at both spots, and the wait is equally long during the popular times. My go-to is the Reggie. There's just something about that combination of biscuit, chicken, bacon, cheese, and gravy. It's really good, and thoroughly... More

Had biscuits and gravy with egg and sausage patty. Was good. My wife had chicken sandwich which was plain breaded chicken on a biscuit - not so good. They have Stumptown coffee, which I think is one of the best in Portland, but only drip, no espresso. There is very limited seating which is cramped and makes any private conversation... More

We've gotten take-out a few times from Pine State, but finally brought the whole family to eat this Sunday. While the wait and small amount of seating are no fun (definitely more accommodating for groups of two, not bigger families like us), the food is worth it. The biscuits are the perfect base for the wonderful sandwiches they create. If... More

Biscuits and atmosphere are completely Portland. The Reggie, a biscuit sandwich with eggs, bacon, mushroom gravy, and a fried chicken breast was delicious! Self service coffee stand was great, and though we were here very early on a weekday, I can see where this place could be packed!
