As the picture below shows, there were virtually no people in this restaurant on a weekday between 7:30 and 8:15, which is prime time for breakfast. 2 of us waited for about 10 minutes for a wait person to bring water and menus. Then we waited 15-20 minutes for food. Service was at best indifferent. The food, hashbrowns and an... More

I've been to this Perkins a lot over the years and usually buy what I usually enjoy -- Eggs Benedict, the Everything Omelet and banana muffins. Service can be very spotty, depending on how busy things are and seems worse at off hours! But generally a great spot, especially for breakfast.

For a chain restaurant, we had a very good and inexpensive lunch with a friend. If we lived in the area, we would definitely go... More

Hadn't been to this Perkins location for a while but nothing has really changed over the past few visits. Although the food is consistent, there never seems to be enough staff on hand. We visited on a Saturday evening around 6 pm and there were only 2 servers on, a supervisor who tended the cash register and take out orders... More

This may have been our last trip to a Perkins! Our food was awful, most of it was cold, and I don't know who taught the cook about presentation but my egg looked nothing like an over easy egg and it must have been the second try at over easy because there was yolk smeared on the plate but my...

Not many restaurants feature menu items for those of us who are over 55, but Perkins does! I appreciate their menu offerings, lower prices, delicious food & attentive service.

Great place to eat with affordable, flexible dining - a bit difficult to find but worth the effort! It is not in a place that one would associate with a restaurant!
