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.

this was the first time ever and may well be the last time. Called ahead about a group service and was informed that they could handle it. Well they could not! The food was not very appetizing except for appearance. Most my dogs would not had eaten and they eat everything. So much for a great lunch.

My wife and i have eaten here several times. Every experience has been very good. We have stopped in at varying times. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food has always been very good. They serve breakfast all day which i love. The menu has many healthy options as well which pleases her. If you're tired of paying 40-50 dollar checks... More

This is a very good place to eat. The food has always been tasty and the service good and friendly. I think some of the very best pancakes you can get! The turkey dinner is real turkey and very delicious. Be sure to check out the great baked goods. Wonderful cookies!!
