Noticed the Perkins opened by my hotel and decided to check it out. The restaurant was clean and fresh, looked great! Food was good. Steak madalians were more done than I prefer, but still tasted great. Shrimp were great. Looking forward to my next visit.

Service was slower than it should have been. The food was good and substitutions were no problem. Don't leave without trying something from the bakery. The server was very sweet, but the manager was wearing a shirt with huge water spots on it. Maybe they were short staffed that morning. However, I would try this restaurant again for the variety...

Perkins is a great all-time family restaurant. I go here for breakfast and this time for dinner. Service is quick and fast. Bathroom can use some tender loving care but most of the time it's clean. It is open 24 hrs and that's what I like about this place. Only in the Midwest and Wisconsin will you see this restaurant.... More

I've been coming to this place the last 10+ years. A racist incident with the manager "Robyn Kurtti" recently was inappropriate after I had been cooperative with her request at the time. She should not have brought up my race, made a rude remark about it, then even tried to relate to me by saying her grand-daughter is also the... More

We just had a meal at this Perkins. My husband has enjoyed a simple meal of a bowl of chicken noodle soup and a piece of lemon meringue pie for decades. On this visit he was surprised to be served the smallest portion of chicken noodle soup in a square bowl on a large rectangular plate. When he spoke to... More

The Perkins Restaurant in Vadnais Heights had a good variety of food and good service, just as expected. The restaurant is starting to look dated and had some cleanliness issues. When we were seated, a previous client's needs had not been properly cleaned - there were two large tortilla style chips on the floor of our booth and they were... More

Although the staff were extremely gracious the pie we ordered had zero taste and the coffee was poor.

The food was very good, and the young waiter was very nice and personable, but he did not come and fill our drinks and he forgot my daughters Kid's meal cookies. The restaurant was clean, but seriously out of date and a bit musty smelling. I would not eat there again, but it was ok for the price.
