This is a restaurant I always try to enjoy at least one meal at when I am in Manitowoc. The food is always the same, good, hot and well made

Went about 7:00 pm on a Friday night for a stack of pancakes. The place was half empty. After being seated I waited for about ten minutes before a server came to take my order of just pancakes and coffee. The coffee came but not the pancakes. 32 minutes after I was seated I was finally served. And when the... More

I love Perkins but the only two I go to which have the best service, food and wonderful attention to customers is in Kenosha off of Highway 50 and this one on Calumet Avenue in Manitowoc. It is a warm, friendly atmosphere with exceptional waiters and food cooked exactly the way you expect. Although I don't eat the Bakery goods,... More

This Perkins opens early (5:30 am) and has wonderful skillets and omelets. The muffins are delicious and huge. I usually get a muffin to go and I can cut it in half to get two later snacks out of it while I am hiking in Door County. I have been at this Perkins many times (at least five times in... More

Delicious lunch. Our server was very personable and friendly. First time we came there was a wait of about a half hour so we skipped it (in a rush) and the second day we got right in. Food was appetizing looking and tasted just as good as it looked. I wanted to try the desserts which looked great but couldn't... More

When were in Manitowoc WI, we usually just like to go to a place that has choices for anytime of day. Sometimes my partner likes breakfast for dinner. So we always go to the Perkins Restaurant. It is near hotels and pretty close to the interstate. The evening we were there, we didn't want a heavy meal so decided on... More

This place was packed in the morning both days as its right next to the Holiday Inn. They have a good system to take down your name and amount of people and then provide a buzzer. On the first day it was 10 minutes and second day it was 25 mins. Not bad and the food was as expected at... More

We met up with my sister-in-law in Manitowoc and decided to have lunch at Perkins. We were seated immediately by a friendly hostess. The menu is rather extensive and somewhat confusing. Breakfast is always available. We each ended up with something different (dinner plate, sandwich, and breakfast items). The food came to the table within 10 minutes after ordering, and... More

My husband and I stopped for breakfast here after a quick trip through Manitowoc on the way to MKE airport. The wait was minimal, the service was acceptable and the food was what you would expect from any breakfast joint - like Denny's or IHOP. The pancakes weren't fluffy like I like them but the eggs were good and the... More

Always trustworthy and, when you are tired like we were late one night, it's a safe bet. I think this Perkins was a bit understaffed this visit. Took a while to be seated and even longer for waitress. Food was served quickly once we were able to order but was not up to typical standards. My wife's was fine if... More
