Wow! This a place to go and eat great food. Best biscuits and mushroom gravy ever! Loved it. We had so much fun and left very full. I can't wait to go back...soon.

We were told to come here by a relative and he was spot on. The biscuits were awesome (my husband had the Reggie) and I have a gluten allergy so I had the hash ups and neither dish disappointed. The owners went to school in North Carolina (Go Pack! what a coincidence) so we were impressed by the touches of... More

This place is seriously disorganized and inefficient, but those are qualities people might not be looking for in a good biscuit place. They serve excellent sausage gravy, the best I've had outside Texas and the South. The full menu including breakfast items is available all day, but be prepared to wait everyday if you don't come at off hours. The... More

The pine state breakfast biscuit was yummy. We had the Reggie and the Reggie deluxe. The biscuit for myself was too large or too much to eat. The hash browns were under seasoned and just ok. The service was very slow. We were there on an early Friday morning.

So, I used TripAdvisor to find a good breakfast place to take my wife and son, as we were dropping him off to start college at University of Portland. We chose Pine State Biscuits based on the reviews, and it was exactly as described. We arrived about 8am on a Saturday, and timed it just right. There were about four... More

I actually went to the one on Division street but either way they are all probably the same. DELICIOUS!! get the Reggie. You won't be sorry. It's pretty much a heart attack on a plate but who cares when you are on vacation!

A most unusual take on "Southern" (Old South) cuisine. About half the offerings on the menu are based on a Southern-style biscuit, just depending on what you want between the top and bottom of the biscuit. The choices are aplenty. I tried their "Pine State Club," which I presumed to be a club "sandwich." Wrong. It was a fork-and-knife plate... More

My company ordered lunch here yesterday and I must say, we were all impressed. Not only was the food delicious, but it's also a great price! I had the chicken club with blue cheese dressing and it was delicious. The fried chicken was slightly dry, but the blue cheese help moisten everything up. I will say that I think this... More

We saw Pine State Biscuits on Triple D and wanted to check it out. We went to the smaller location near Broadway on a Wednesday morning. There was no line. I ordered a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit sandwich and my husband ordered biscuits and gravy. Both were excellent. The service was friendly and fast. I would definitely come here... More

I ordered the biscuits with the egg on top. Well worth the wait. Nothing like I've ever had before. Well worth the wait. The line went very quickly and was able to find outdoor seating. I would highly recommend! My favorite spot in Portland.
