Good Food and atmosphere

We ate breakfast before heading to the Mall of America. Staff was super friendly and food was good. I didn't have to send my bacon back they got it right the first time.

I went into this Perkins thinking it was just like any other Perkins. Boy was I wrong. I had a waiter named Tom. He is AWESOME ! He made great suggestions on food, was super friendly, and really funny !

Best restaurant and waiter with Tom. Make sure you ask for him. Half price pie and appetizers after nine. Great place to study

If you stop in ask for Toms World. Best Waiter I have ever had. If his section is full wait for him. Great guy, super friendly, turns a normal dining experience into something special

Chicken and Spinach salad for dinner was missing 4 of the 6 ingredients. Service was so slow and not attentive. This was sad because I have had great results at other Perkins in other states.

Well... The food was really good can't complain about that. Service was good once we got waited on. My husband and I were about to leave when our waitress finally showed up. At first we did not think they were going to wait on us. After seating us no one had acknowledged us for 15 minutes. No drinks or anything.... More

In the past I have visited this Perkins whenever I'm in the Twin Cities. The breakfasts are typically tasty, up to Perkins standards, anyway. The issue I have with it is the service. All of my experiences here seem to indicate that a woman alone rates very low on their service scale. (Of course they have no way of knowing... More

What a pleasure having this particular Perkins 1 block from our hotel. Clean, great service and prices. The back of the breakfast menu had a 5 for 4 breakfast (5 items for $4) that was a perfect way to start our day. This particular Perkins was also know as a favorite of the family and friends we visited in Bloomington.

This Perkins is a much prettier version of the most of their restaurants. I had not been there in a long time and took a chance for this lunch with a friend. I was very disappointed. Tthe service was slow and the lunch food was just OK. This visit did not make me want to return. (I much prefer their... More
