awesome breakfast – I mean how can you go wrong you can get breakfast anytime. Their grits are to die for and i try to get out to it at least once a week.
Great on all levels – I find it hard to believe someone hated this place! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, however.
The service I had the past few times I've been hasn't been stellar, but I wouldn't classify it as terrible.
The food, on the other hand, is unbelievable. I especially love the grits and French Toast. You would think the biscuits were great, but they are a little hard for my liking. I still enjoyed the biscuits, but expected better, seeing that the name of the establishment is "Flying Biscuit".
Only thing that annoys me is how the establishment is set up. With the popularity of this place, you would think it would have more seating available. We went for lunch on a random weekday at 11:15, and still had to wait 10 minutes for a table. Once the weather warms up, the outdoor seating will help, but it's very crowded when the weather is poor.
Regardless ... I would go back a thousand times!
Terrible service and grumpy staff – We just got back from our second visit to this restaurant. I should say a 2nd chance. The staff was extremely unpleasant on both visits and the service is just terrible. The employees should stay home if they don't want to work and the owner should do a better job of hiring employees and monitoring his/her establishment. Just such a disapointment. Not a comfortable place, staff is very undesirable and the food is not all that. Not a recommended especially if you are looking for a nice relaxing meal with family.
Great New Restaurant – I absolutely loved The Flying Biscuit!!!! Food was great, nice wine/beer list, fabulous atmosphere, and family friendly, you have to try it. I had the fried green tomatoe BLT, and was pleasantly surprised by the flavors, turkey bacon and goat cheese are a great combination. The healthy options are exciting, turkey bacon and fresh organic ingredients, go now!!!
EVERYONE MUST GO!!! – Fun, High Energy, Great Food and True Customer Service. The Flying Biscuit Cafe has it all. Be ready for a burst to all of your senses! HEARING- the place hums like a well tuned engine. Especially on Saturdays and Sundays with all the people moving around in this tight cozy space with good music in the background. Servers greeting and selling, bus boys clearing tables, families enjoying the food and each other all mold into the hum. SIGHT- there is not one dull thing to look at in this place. Be ready for a sight overload with all the fun things to check out on the walls and it doesn't stop there. Look up and check out the ceiling tiles. It is always partly cloudy with the giant puffy clouds painted behind the bar area. TASTE- The food is really good. Breakfast Rocks!! Tried almost everything on the breakfast menu and haven't experienced a bad thing. The Grits are the best. The other items like the 3B Chicken Sandwhich, Salmon Salad and Oven Fried Chicken with mac and cheese are great lunch or dinner choices. SMELL- Daily made biscuits from scratch constantly coming out of the oven because one is served with every meal keeps the nose busy. TOUCH- Everything about this place touches you in a way that makes you want to come back and be a part of the funky fun dinning experience! Great customer service, happy people and flavorful food keeps me coming back. Oh yeah I like the healthy options as well -Turkey Bacon, Chicken Sausage, Tofu Scramble. Thanks for Coming to Charlotte.
