Great diner, super busy, but worth it.

Had to wait in line to get coffee and place the order, but the line moved fast and the staff was super efficient. The food is good and hot, and it came out quick. You order and pay at the counter, and they don't accept tips at the counter, but the lady that brings out the food is very... read more

Finally had a chance to eat here on Friday and very happy I did! The line was very very long and you just stand there and wait and wait while people bustle around, but the food comes out quickly and is delicious. They have the best biscuits I have ever tasted. Huge portions and great prices! warning that this place... More

By far one of the worst breakfast meals we have ever had. Eggs were over cooked, meat was extremely overcooked, grits were watery and the gravy tasted more like flour than gravy. The only good thing was the biscuits. Won't be going back.

This place had the best Bologna of anywhere we ate. The grits were also good as were the biscuits. The place is busy though and gets crowded. Worth a visit.

We "accidently" happened upon Bryant's for breakfast and I am sooooo glad that we did! It was yummy, and the little restaurant has a down-home feel to it and it was perfect! Be mindful that it is PACKED but the service and the line went by so fast you didn't even realize the wait. The line was wrapped around the... More

The food was delicious! Although it was packed with customers the food was served in a timely manner. They just need a nuch bigger sized restaurant.

I arrived here with a friend on Saturday morning at 8am. I feared the line would be outside the door, but it was just winding around inside. I waited in line about 10 mins, and the food arrived about another 10 minutes after ordering. There was a steady line the entire time we were there. My friend ordered the breakfast... More

Perfect start to the day. Nice home-cooked style meals at affordable prices. Interesting decor and friendly staff. Heard the staff greeting the local customers by name. It opens early and fills up quickly.

This is my 3rd or 4th time here. Always a line. Always noisy and pushy and always delish. I ordered my daughter a country ham biscuit and I tried a pork tenderloin and egg sandwich. I think the biscuit was $3-$4 and the sandwich $5.39. OMG. The biscuit had 3 biscuit sized, 1/4" pieces of ham. The sandwich had 2... More

I LOVE biscuit breakfast sandwiches and had my first grilled bologna and egg biscuit sandwich. A real treat. The pancakes are also light and fluffy. Grits and gravy. Don't miss the potato cakes. All terrific. Order at the counter, then find a seat and they will bring your breakfast.
