I'm from a small town, food is served in large helpings and the folks serving us kept the coffee/tea topped off. The food is just fine as the large selection of restaurants keep choices at a minimum, but I am pleased that Perkins offers more than I have time to eat out . People should try to prepare the same...

It's been a very long time since I've eaten at Perkins mainly because they are not near my home. I was waiting for a car repair and Perkins was walking distance and it was around dinner time. I was greeted and seated right away. In a few moments, had glass of water and menu. I ordered a seafood platter with... More

Perkins had been a surprise. We didn't expect much from a chain but the food was good and the service was very good. Unfortunately, my friend found a day dot sticker in his food. The manager immediately took care of it, but it ruined our dinner.

I brought my parents, who came into town to visit, at this restaurant. the service was horrible slow, and our waiter was very rude and acted like he didn't want to be there. When we got our food, there was a glob of some white stuff on the side of my plate. It turned out to be a hunk of... More

First of all, the service its self was enough to make you turn around and leave. It took our waitress FOR-EVER to come to the table... We're sitting there twiddling our thumbs.... Okay then finally when we do get to order, my waitress snatched my menu (now I could've went h.a.m. on her) but I politely snatched the menu back... More

I would go there to study and I had a hair in my biscuit and gravy. My friend had lipstick on her glass and she wears no lipstick. One time we waited to order for an hour and the place was empty. The bathroom was always nasty with no toilet paper. Eating of my kitchen floor would be more sanitary... More

Yeah... there are much better places to get food... but, at 3 in the morning, there's positively nothing better than a huge Perkins omelet and pancakes.
