My go to place for breakfast

I try and stop by Dyars at least once a week for breakfast. It's almost like eating at home. The servers are always friendly, the food comes fast and it's consistently good. You can always find someone to talk with the coffee is hot. If you stay too long you can get in the lunch line!

I'm sure a lot of people love this place, but not me! I had baked chicken, which was well seasoned, but it was one of those funny cuts where you get some of the ribs and back, but not much meat. the steamed veggies and green beans were cooked to mush and full of margarine. The greens were not much... More

We love this restaurant! There are so many delicious choices and the staff is very friendly! My favorite is the fried chicken, moist and crisp! Don't forget the soft serve ice cream to go with the different cobblers.

I've eaten at Dyar's about three times since I moved to Pendleton. The food has always been good. I've ordered take out trays once and I've eaten in twice. The fried chicken is very good. I also like the meat loaf. The turkey and dressing is tasty. Most of the vegetables are southern style and have a good taste. I'm... More

I'm not sure how I missed out on this place the entire time I've worked at Clemson! The macaroni and cheese tastes just like my aunt's, and the chicken right out of the fryer tastes close to my mom's. The tea is sweet and the staff is friendly. We'll definitely go back.

Dyar's was a disappointment. I use to go to cafeterias with my grandmother. I have good memories of that. Dyar's menu is limited and reminded me of a school cafeteria (which is not a good memory). The food seemed like it was probably bought frozen, heated and served. I had the chicken which was bland. The servers are nice but... More

This little hole in the wall was so worth the money and the drive. We went there for breakfast, and while the service was a little slow at first it was well worth it. The portions were large and kept us full for most of the day!

Good old diner breakfast and great coffee! Service was also very good. Nice old style place beats the chain breakfast spots hands down.

Dyar's is a family run diner that features meat and three lunch offerings every day except Saturday. The meats are predictable (in fact, you can get fried or baked chicken every single day). The other meats are fairly standard (chicken casserole on Monday, turkey & dressing on Wednesday, and fish on Friday). Problem is that if you don't eat the... More
