We visit this restaurant frequently because of the good food and excellent service. We always ask for Molly because she's very friendly, efficient, and always smiling. My husband mostly eats the Senior Blueberry Pancakes with Bacon. The bacon has a good flavor -- just be sure to request how you like it cooked. I usually opt for the Honey Mustard... More

My wife and I had breakfast on a Saturday morning. Restaurant was fairly crowded but service was quick. I had waffle, eggs, and chicken sausage. My wife had eggs and toast. Both our meals were as expected. Not bad but not great either. Syrup was cold and would be better if warmed. This is a good restaurant for a sit... More

Wonderful service ... Server's name was Robin. Food was great. Easy off/on to Interstate 81. Definitely would stop here again.

Professional principal dancers for performances of a major production of The Nutcracker arrived from California and requested Perkins as their restaurant of choice for dinner. From delivery of the menus we waited more than 10 minutes for the server to return. After ordering drinks, we waited more than 15 minutes until another server arrived to inquire about drinks. Then after... More

I should start out by saying that my instincts told me to avoid this place. I can't stand these chain restaurants, but was exhausted and this was nearby to my hotel. I was tired and hungry, and seriously, how do you mess up breakfast? First I had to wait to be seated. There was one other table occupied. Dinner service... More

Depends on what you order and who your server is, somedays I leave thinking I need to eat here more, others I say why did we come here, roll the dice you never know.

My husband and I decided to go to one of our favorite spots from long ago date nights....... Wasn't very impressed. Service was pretty good but the food was mediocre. I ordered chicken biscuits covered in gravy and he had the open face turkey sandwich. There wasn't enough gravy on either meal. Probably won't be back for a while.

You can always count on Perkins to serve up good food no matter the hour of the day. I particularly like getting breakfast any hour of the dsy. The senior citizen menu is a good choice also. Sometimes service is a little slow but otherwise no complaints here.
