This restaurant id typical of the Perkins you would expect. Server very friendly and helpful, will give you more time if needed to make your mind up, as the choice is good, can be difficult to decide. Parking not a problem here, convenient location being just off highway 61.

I have a group of volunteers that are working in the cold on Oct 17th. Perkins has donated free coffee to this troupe. They are an outstanding supporter of community involvement. PS. I always have exceptional food and service at this restaurant!

Management continues to go our of his way to make certain he stays on top of his restaurant. I've not had food that I returned or felt a need to comment negatively on. I have encountered wait staff issues, but brought to management and promptly corrected. Love the home style cooking, the large, diversified menu. Something for everyone.

Came with family so we had four adults and three young kids. Service was friendly and she kept our drinks full, checked in on us etc. Food was pretty good and reasonably priced.

Good food. Prices are also decent. Menu changes fairly frequently which I personally like. I wish they would bring back the bread bowl salads...I really miss them. Service is good, we've only had issues when they have a large group or 2 come in...it happens. This is one our families favorite places to eat with young children as they have... More

We have visited Perkins a few times since we moved to Cottage Grove. All of our visits have been good. No issues at all with food or service and it seems we can always get a table. Food is served fast and hot. No complaints!

The food, we had burger platters, was actually very good. The shakes we ordered actually came with the malt cup for extra goodness. The service is always good, we've been there a few times, and they stay open later than most other restaurants. BIG PLUS if you're running late from some event and didn't have time to eat before you... More

This Perkins has come a long way from when I first moved to Cottage Grove 10 years ago. The atmosphere is typical of other Perkins, but the servers make all the difference. All of the wait staff are attentive and the food is good.

This place was recently redone and has new ownership. They have improved tremendously and I recommend going there for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
