Went here for breakfast and boy does it fill up fast. I had the Pine State Fried Club which is White Cheddar wrapped in ham and fried, fried chicken topped with spicy honey, and a fried green tomato with pimento cheese all of which are on fried grit cakes. So Good! I even ordered an extra biscuit to make a... More

Staff friendly and helpful with limited seating. Food OK. Had the hash browns with ham, VERY salty. Not sure what all the 5 stars are about. Somewhat anti climactic after all the build up this place gets.

I came here on Sunday as a solo brunch experience... The scene was very reminiscent of Portlandia... 15 people in front of me waiting to have brunch at this funky restaurant with a great reputation... I thought "What am I doing here? Can this place be that good?" Luckily I had a copy of the Sunday NY Times to read... More

The good: Down-home savory goodness in a fun & quirky neighborhood. Their signature biscuit sandwich is the Reggie, with fried chicken, bacon, & melted cheese on a fresh-baked biscuit topped with gravy. Local apple cider was perfect with it. The bad: It seems that with better staffing the lines wouldn’t be so long. When we went to the Alberta location... More

Loved this place. The biscuits were fluffy and full of flavor. Tried one with chicken, honey mustard and pickles that was so good. My husband had a sandwich with chicken, Apple butter, cheese and bacon that was even better. They also had fresh peaches with biscuits and whipped cream. I can't wait to go back here

From a menu where nothing isn't great, to a funky explorable neighborhood, this is a must have meal when in the Portland area. In the Pacific Northwest, even high cuisine is comfort based, and this is a perfect example. All manner of biscuit concoctions and combinations (and, of course, the biscuits alone are perfect: big, fluffy, golden brown outside), where... More

I've been in twice to the Alberta location this summer. The food is excellent. I ordered the hash-ups with a side of gravy as well as the blueberry corn pancakes. The food is great an definitely worth the wait, and prices are very fair. The restaurant has a cool funky Portland vibe with hints of North Carolina, the namesake of... More

Ventured here with the kids and some friends that had been here before. Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

The biscuits are amazing. This is counter service, order and seat yourself. The place has a great vibe -- and why wouldn't it? Everyone is eating delicious biscuits! I had the McInsley -- fried chicken on a biscuit with honey, dill pickels and whole grain mustard. It sounds weird, but it was delicious -- that sweet, salty, sour combo! YUM... More
