My daughter and I stopped at Perkins around noon on Sunday. We expected to wait but were pleasantly surprised when we were seated in 5 minutes. Our drink order came right away and our server was attentive and prompt. Our meals came quickly and were delicious. The restaurant was well staffed for the crush of customers in they were serving.

I get the same thing every time I go here, the chicken tender melt. It is always good. It can become very busy on Sunday's as it seems to be a place where people go after church. They always have something new on the menu that seems to go with the seasons, this summer there is a lot of avocado... More

Perkins in Grand Forks is like the gathering place, many come here before or after an event, after church, for all kinds of good food and delicious desserts. Ask for Diane if you are there in the mornings, best server in town, in our opinion. Always friendly and always a smile on her face. They have a good variety of... More

If there is one thing you can count on with the Perkins franchise is that they are consistent where ever you go. Food is good, service is attentive and their pies are fresh. I tried the potato pancakes.... Good portions. I only wish the coffee Perkins uses was a bit stronger.

When we go to Perkins we always know what we are going to get. We had not been for 6 or more months. We had b'fast on a Friday. AMAZING! Try the pumpkin pancake plate, very good. Service always good.

Although the service was good, the food left much to be desired.both meals were luke warm. The atmosphere is very tired and is in dire need of a facelift.

Our service was prompt and courteous, the menu has a great variety. I ordered the turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, and stuffing. The portions are nice. Everything tasted good, except for my cold mashed potatoes. The waitress apologized profusely and offered to get me a new batch. More than likely i will be back again

Perkins is an old family favourite of ours, having eaten there many times over the years. It is walker and wheelchair accessible, with excellent service and a never-ending pot of coffee. The visit this year - a first for my husband - did not disappoint, and we were fortunate to be there for strawberry specials: tasty and fresh. The pie... More
