Good dinner

Our waiter was very friendly and he did a great job. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. Even though it was dinner/supper time I ordered off the all day breakfast menu.

We were traveling back from Cedar falls to Indiana and stopped to eat here. It was later in the evening so not very crowded. The food was very good and there were several choices on the menu. I had a chicken mushroom dish and my brother had a chipotle dish. We both cleaned our plates. It's been along time since... More

We have been very pleased with so many of the Perkins restaurants muffins and pies during our vacation. This one in Coralville was no exception. The Raspberry Cream muffin was very tasty. Very good quick stops for 'take out' items such as the muffins. A nice change from the doughnut chains and for about the same $$$.

After driving twelve hours, this restaurant was a welcome place to relax. The hostess was very friendly and seated us immediately. The wait staff was very efficient and we were served in a timely manner.

They were packed with a bus of seniors, but handled it with grace and composure. We didn't wait long for a table or food. Everything was great, and that seems to be what you always get at a Perkins, no matter where you go. My only complaint is the tidyness of the restaurant. It was demolished with the huge crowd,...

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

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

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.
