Finger-licking good

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

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

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.

Extremely slow line to order. I understand it's crowded because of its good reputation but modify to fit the crowd. Absolutely no room to stand or sit. Biggest downfall cash only. What is this 1965?? Food was decent. Hard to screw up eggs and bacon.

Long line but fast service. Family style seating (you grab a seat as fast as you can). To die for biscuits and gravy. More food than any 1 person can eat. It was a tough choice but is went with the everything omlett 👌🏽👌🏽
