Value over quality

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... read more

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.

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.

My wife and I had breakfast at this Perkins on our recent trip to Coralville. It was close to our hotel and we had risen too late for the "free" breakfast. we both ordered the Mediterranean omelet. This is an omelet with spinach, feta, and roasted tomatoes, topped with hollandaise. When our plates came out, the omelets looked small, but... More

Good breakfast at a reasonable price. Wait staff was exceptional, responsive and very accommodating to gluten free needs. They have separate gf menu and when kitchen messed up did not fuss about remaking plate. Even have a separate grill for gf so they understand importance. Very good experience!! Definitely a great stop for brunch

During our recent visit to Iowa City, we ate breakfast at Perkins. I had the new menu item yogurt parfait with apples and granola topping, eggs, bacon, apple muffin. It was delicious but the best part of the meal was our waiter Cody. We had 4 children with four of us adults. He was very attentive, patient, and accommodating for... More
