I said "let's just go to Perkins for a sit-down meal" expecting "nothing fancy". My friend was unfamiliar with Perkins. We were amazed at the variety... More

Enjoyed a reasonable lunch with free pie (Monday) and mediocre service. Yummy pie, chicken broccoli pasta was good and Cajun salmon was well cooked.

My wife ordered breakfast and I ordered lunch, with in five or six minutes we had our order exactly as we ordered it and my Honey mustard crunch salad looked better than the menu's... More

I had lunch here while in town for a concert. It was fairly busy, but we did not have to wait more than 10-15 mins to be seated. The food was good and the service was pretty quick. We also got some muffins and cookies to go from the bakery..buy 3 get 3 free. The only complaint I have is... More

Stopped in after 9 hours of driving. You get what you expect as it is a chain. After 9 hours in the car with 2 kids its nice to be able to sit down and know what to expect. And the pie was fabulous!

We ate here for supper & breakfast. @ supper I liked the salmon & hubby thought the pork tenderloin was OK. For breakfast I choose 2 pieces of French toast & hubby had 2 eggs, hash brown potatoes & sausage patty. Both meals the food was good; the service good & the price good.

It was very busy on a Wednesday night. We waited over an hour for our food. When it finally arrived we were pleasantly surprised at how good everything tasted. Our waitress was wonderful! (We heard someone in the kitchen yelling rudely at the staff, so I'm assuming they had some kitchen issues that night). Otherwise, it was a very good... More
