First off I find that this location has different menus that they use, why? No one seems to know so you can't order your favorite meal any day you want. Last night we popped in for dinner at 7:15 the place was not half full when we were finally seated we saw the sign that ice tea was $.99 special... More

Because the AmericInn Hotel next door doesn't have an in-house dining choice, their guests are referred to this Perkins as it is right across the parking lot. Standard 'pancake house' fare, in my opinion. Locals can avail themselves of occasional coupons and it seems to not have much of a wait time. The check-out counter has a case of extremely... More

Make sure to take home baked goods from the bakery! The food and service were good. The best part was the Bakery items. We may eat here again if we are in the area.

Never been a fan of Perkins, but conned to going by family. Nothing's improved since last visit years ago (in another state). Meals just don't seam to have much excitement; a little too bland for my taste. Nice menu choices, average decor. Again, food is not bad, just nothing memorable! May be nice for breakfast.

I ate here this morning before a flight out of Tampa and it was fine. Nothing to go out of your way to eat at but good none the less. The server was good although she seemed tired but I would imagine she was there at a very early hour. The place was almost empty so the food came out... More

Perkins had a very family style aura. The food was cooked well and very tasty. I enjoyed it also because it was walking distance from my hotel.

We have tried several breakfast restaurants in the area and this one is hard to beat. Weekend traffic is heavy, in season, but our hostess said we had a 5 minute wait. She was right on. The service was friendly, very clean with excellent food. Reasonably priced. We did have to wait about 20 minutes for the food but when... More
