Although we came in at the peak dinner time on a Sunday night, there were only a couple of other tables occupied in the restaurant. That should have been our first clue that this may not have been our best choice of restaurants. We were quickly seated but it was quite some time before we saw our waitress and had... More

Walked into the restaurant. No one at the front area until someone came up to pay. Seemed that the gal was disturbed by the paying customer. She didn't even thank them. Just hands them their change. Then says to me and my party, how many? I say three. she grabbed three menus. and starts walking. I am guessing to follow... More

Salads with fresh mixed lettuce, baked potatoes actually baked in an oven, and a great server named Alex who was friendly, attentive, and professional - who could ask for more! Thanks, Perkins, for a wonderful dinner as we traveled across the country!

Perkins is consistently average. Had a little problem communicating with our waitress as she had a European accent and did not understand my order for egg's benedict. I end up with poached eggs, instead.

We stopped in traveling across the state. Typical Perkins fare. Good service, decent predictable food. I had the crispy chicken salad which was fantastic, lots of veggies and chicken. Hubble had Foch dip. Very predictable. Only issue was the waitress vacuumed while we were eating with a noisy vacuum so we couldn't talk. It wasn't as if we were only... More

Had the chicken and biscuits for breakfast. The special was "Strawberry everything"....ordered the little pies to take out, pretty good, but for $3.50 each, they were pretty small. One waitress was older, and the woman running the counter kept snipping at her, made it quite uncomfortable.

I have eaten here for the last time. The only good service is late at night when the young assistant manager is on duty Regular manager is ornery and appears to not like her job. Service during the morning and lunch time is slow, food is often not cooked as ordered, additive is take it or leave it. I don't... More

Wanted some soup but was out, so I ordered sandwiches instead. They were pretty good. Service was a bit slow, overall not too bad. Ordered two beverages, and forgot them cause they werent with in my order, wasnt going back. Cant complain with this being, to my knowledge, the only late night eatery in Dickinson thats open.
