Great Biscuits, Efficient Service

Visited on a Friday morning around 10:00 a.m. Very busy but very efficient. Waited in line for about ten minutes. Line moved steadily. Things are set up to move you along and by the time you get to the register to actually order and pay you already have your drink in hand. After ordering you can... read more

The food looks amazing and tastes amazing. One slight problem we had on our visit. We had a special ingredient in 3 of our 4 meals. My husband got his plate and noticed a little black hair in his eggs. They took it back right away and gave him another plate. My mom was really enjoying her omelet until she... More

The Food here was good, and you get so much. Be prepared to stand in line, and be around a crowd; but it's worth it. people will eat, get full and clear out. I wish the building was bigger, be if you have ate at other small places; you'll have no problems. Good food!!!!!

Stopped in here for a breakfast bowl and was hooked. This is a small place but we got in and out in 15mins with our food and ate in the car. Since I only had breakfast I'll have to go back to try the BBQ ☺

Based on the rave reviews, my wife and I stopped here on a Saturday morning. As predicted their was a substantial line of people and the line was moving fast. Congrats to the management on running a finely tuned operation. Sorry to report that my positive comments ends there. The food was ok, but that's it... not bad but nothing... More

Everything on the menu was delicious and the service in the busy establishment was GREAT!! The pancakes were made to perfection; the bacon was tasty and the omelet was the best we've ever tasted! We will definitely be frequent customers when we travel to Memphis

First off, cash only. Being the first visit to Bryants I ordered quite a bit of stuff. All I'll say is that the pancakes and biscuits are quite hearty. They sit on you well. The omelettes are really good and actually packed with toppings. A meal costs about $10 and only takes about 10mins to cook. I do recommend a... More

My wife and i are breakfast junkies. We could have it for all 3 meals. In Chicago we had places like Walker's Brothers, and Greek owned diners by the hundreds, so we are used to a certain level of service, quality and quantity of food. Now we live in Sarasota, Fl, and there is no shortage of breakfast restaurants, as... More

My wife and I have eaten at Bryant's several times - frankly, I don't know why I haven't eaten there more (they've been around since 1968) - but today's Breakfast Sampler was quite good. Sure, I did have and enjoyed my biscuits and gravy, and eggs, and grits. Today, though, I had the Country Fried Steak (hadn't had it before)... More

Big portions. Good value. Small environment. Cash only! We were there about 7:30 on a Sat. morning so we waited only 5-7 minutes to order. By the time we left, the line was much longer.
