Average food, average service, and average prices. Nothing special, but makes for an okay breakfast. Waitress was a little snotty.

Perkins Restaurants are pretty standard for good food. This time was not so good. It took forever to get waited on then forever to get served and then they got it wrong! By the time we got it all together it was cold. I did mention it on the way out and got the meal free. It was moving in... More

We went in for a brunch after waking up late. The food was decent, typical Perkins food. Our waiter on the other hand was fantastic. Charles was his name and if we ever eat there again we will be requesting him.

Upon traveling out of town my boyfriend, friend and I decided to stop here for breakfast. The staff was very welcoming upon entering the resturant. We got seated quickly and our waitress was very kind. The food was hot and everything was correct. Was a great quick and easy breakfast.

I have eaten at Perkins for 30 years but this was the last time. I ordered a granny country omelet. It was a missing egg, cheese, hash browns, celery everything. I'm not sure what was going on in the kitchen that day.

I like the pricing and value for my money, but I have visited several times and have had several minor issues over the last few months. Everything from dirty glasses, dirty silverware, loud employees in the back who must not know we can hear them, can't seem to make the same salad twice, and horrible tasting water (a lemon won't...

We were hungry! Perkins is a great late night place to eat. But this time it was the service. Kody was great. I’m sure he get his fill of late night patrons that could be obnoxious and I would tend to be expecting it as a waiter therefore getting a bit jaded. Not Kody. He treat us like we were... More

I've never eaten at this Perkin's before, so when a buddy asked me to meet him for lunch I agreed. Was I in for a surprise! Right off the bat the parking lot had lots of rubble on it; old cups, cue tips, cigarette butts, old drinking cups empty pop bottles, etc. Walk to the door included walking through old... More

The food was good as I recall, but the pie really made an impression. The place has a bakery attached, and man oh man, they does pies right. The lemon meringue pie was the best I have ever had. Also bought a sticky roll to go, and it was excellent too.
