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

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.

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!

We have eaten at many Perkins Resturants and we quit going to them. we got really bad service with waiting for up to 20 plus minutes just to get services then another 50 min. to get our food then it was cold. This happened more than once, more than twice with no appoligies or discounts so we quit all together... More

At Perkins, I know what to expect and it always meets my expectations. Excellent breakfast choices, average menu for other meals, good service.
