When I moved to town, I was single. I had been looking for a girlfriend, I had reached out to several single ladies, but no connection or chemistry between us. One Saturday in October of 2008, I agreed to meet her at Perkin's, her suggestion. We talked for over two hours, had many cups of coffee........... We go there at... More

Perkins has breakfast lunch and dinner. It has great muffins and Chuck is always friendly. I don't like paying the high cost for hot tea or coffee. It's a family type of restaurant. Sometimes you can get your order in a reasonable amount of time and the next time it takes forever. Even when there isn't a lot of people... More

Mom and I enjoy the reasonably priced senior breakfasts. Upscale from fast food. Sunny atmosphere. Great pies for purchase. One evening per week, diners receive free pieces of pie. Clean. Excellent staff.

This is a typical chain restaurant, but one that seems to have consistently good quality food. This one was no exception. We had a good dinner at a reasonable price.

I have never been to a Perkins restaurant that has good service. They always have good eats though. Right now my favorite is the bbq pork breakfast burrito. So amazing and filling!

I was there at breakfast on a Sunday morning. This was during the Railroad Days weekend so it is possible they are not usually as busy. There seemed to be a number of employees but service and food was slow. My waitress asked if I wanted more to drink but never brought it. I had to ask about my bill... More

We went to Perkins for a late lunch, what a disappointment. The ladies had duo combs meals, the salads were warm and nothing special but they each really liked their BLTs. I had a salad with crunchy chicken and honey mustard dressing. My salad was very warm and the chicken was bland. One might ask, "Why didn't you send the... More

This is a restaurant that serves good ol' American food and pies. The service was great. Although the food was average it was not a disappointment.

I don't think that i've ever had a bad meal at Perkins. You can get breakfast all day. Big portions on your meals. If you go away hungry, then you've got a problem. We go a couple of times a year.
