Better than fast food

Stopped for a late dinner before checking in to our motel. Food was tasty and good size portion. Found the restaurant to be clean. The servers were prompt and courteous.

The past couple of trips to Perkins with my Mom after church have been a big disappointment and this time I was upset. Last time we were seated by the kitchen door. They are always busy after church, but every time one of the many waitresses went in or out (and it was a steady stream) they would say loudly... More

We were going to just stop in for coffee and perhaps pie. After getting in off the road we hit the restrooms and they were absolutely filthy. Outside in the restaurant we noticed food and filth all over the place, had they vacuumed this week? Who knows. My wife put on her sweater so she wouldnt have to actually touch... More

We came in the off hours and there were plenty of people in uniform. But no one cleaned tables! People left because of the wait while the dining room was full of empty, dirty tables. The divider window was filthy and the floor was covered in food/trash. The manager seemed more interested in the money on the tables. Kitchen staff... More

25-30 years ago, you couldn't beat the pie, now, not so much. Good pie, but no longer great. The other food selection is good, but not outstanding. Eating here is a bit expensive, but service is excellent. Coffee is typical for the Midwest, fresh, but plain and watery. If you're used to Starbucks and other high end types of coffee,... More

The line to get in on Sunday at noon tells you it's worth the wait- only about 15 minutes for our group of 5, so not bad. I've eaten at several Perkins in Iowa and this one is as good as all the others. Service was excellent- especially considering how busy they were. I don't live in M'town (or Iowa),... More

We received good service and as always, convenient because of late night hours. Close proximity to motels.

Great selection and good food! My son and I ate there several times during my visit to Marshalltown. The employees were all very friendly. The restaurant was clean both inside and out!
