It had been quite awhile since I had been at this restaurant, but since I was really hungry and the place that was our intended destination was way too crowded, my friend and I decided to come here instead. Place was practically empty. Jason was our waiter. My friend ordered the Rueben Sandwich with fries, and I settled on the... More

We ordered breakfast at the Perkins. My daughter ordered her favorite, Blueberry pancakes. I ordered their Brioche French Toast. The food was good. The server was pleasant. It appears that they hadn't swept the floor in a while. There were scraps of food and other unidentifiable stuff on the floor.

Clean. Food is late-night grub. Staff isn't rude. Simplistic. I would eat here again. It's a late night place. I wouldn't go for lunch or dinner, but late-night sit down works.

Food is very good, but somewhat disappointed on the charge for a cup of soup. Our potato pancakes came with bacon. It was a meatless Friday for us so we asked not to have the bacon. We decided to order a cup of soup. Turns out the soup was over 3 dollars a cup. WOW! The cup was pretty small.... More

We were back in the area to see a friend and took her to Perkins because of the good menu and food. What happened? Instead of a friendly greeting at the door, we were seated in a gloomy manner. The food was good, but the service was terrible. Our server had to be asked twice for the simplest things like... More

We are regulars at Perkins and were very disappointed that this Monday when we went to have dinner and pie, that they were sold out. Dinner was still good and we will definitely go back.

We got seated quickly and waited on fast. Our server was very friendly and apologetic but the food took forever. We went for Sunday breakfast but we got seated within 5 minutes. We got our beverages quickly. The food took 45 minutes and some of it was cold. The server offered to replace it but at the point we no... More

went with friends and was very impressed by menu variety (had a chicken dia that was superb) and companions from NC made a special trip because said their pancakes are the best. Very clean, great service, friendly. Definitely would go again (but hard to get into which shows how good it is- value and food quality).

Thank Margaret D
