About
In 1924, Benjamin Tillman "Pop" Byrd, Sr. , at the age of 28, began baking his famous Scotch Oatmeal cookies in beautiful Savannah Georgia. He had a small bakery downtown near City Market and delivered the fresh cookies to stores around town in his Model T Ford. Typically, the cookies were sold out of large glass jars at ‘2 for a penny’. Pop’s cookies quickly became a favorite among locals and several more items were added to the bakery lineup, but nothing was as unique or as popular as the Scotch Oatmeal cookie. As the business grew, Pop decided to move the bakery closer to home on the outskirts of town, a little community called Sandfly. In 1929, he built a larger bakery which he lovingly named “Byrd’s Famous Cookies".

Yummy key lime
Aug 2021 • Solo
Stopped in here just to see what they were about. Free samples of all cookies so you can try everything ! Cookies come in several sized packages so there is a price point for everyone!! I loved the lemon, key lime and peach!! I got some to take home!!!

Great little cookies that have been around in the South for many years!
Jul 2021
I'm usually a soft, chewy cookie type of person and Byrds are not that but I did fall in love with a couple of the flavors! I love the Almond Shortbread~they are excellent! I also like that they let you taste their cookies so you know if you like them or not. We ended up buying 3 different kinds and when we went to pay for them they told us we could get one more bag for $ 1.00 so we did! I got the Almond Shortbread and Chocolate Chip and my husband got the Lemon and the Key Lime cookies. I had never heard of them but am already looking to order some online!

Great Cookies
Jul 2021 • Solo
They specialize in little hard cookies and have 7-8 flavors that are all good. It’s a great snack to buy a bag and I like to get a variety mix.

They don’t sell them fresh out of the oven, though, only in bags.

Byrds is a Cookie Heaven
May 2021
Great staff. Generous samples. Loved the cookie flavor options. I was pleasantly pleased with the location plus the ability to either buy pre packaged cookies or cream a small box of all the flavors.

Great tasting fresh cookies
May 2021 • Couples
We went to the location in Gatlinburg, TN but the service and cookies were delicious. They are bite size and crispy cookies that taste very fresh. Typically I like the softer cookies but these were really good and not to sweet. Our favorites were the chocolate chip, salter caramel and oatmeal cookies.

Delicious!
Apr 2021
I wasn’t sure what to expect from mass production of cookies. What a pleasant surprise! All the cookies were delicious and full of flavor! There was always someone providing samples which I appreciate because you want to try before you buy. Everyone was helpful and we ended up buying many bags of cookies for family as gifts.

Poor Customer service
Sep 2020
The store on Waters has very poor customer service. Despite leaving a phone number to contact us should there be an issue with shipping the store DID not call and said they didn't have a number to contact us. They surely took our money for the purchase and shipping though! The manager implied that I was not telling the truth about leaving our number. Horrible experience and we will not be sending or recommending their products any longer.

Friendliest staff
Oct 2020
Happened in here on a whim and were pleasantly surprised. The staff was incredibly friendly without being pushy. Nice folks to talk to. The samples were excellent and convinced us to buy four bags of cookies! While good, the bags did not live up to the samples when we got them home, otherwise this place would be a home run!
