On our family trip we stopped at Perkins Restaurant in Bristol, VA. We have stopped here before and knew we would get good food and great service. Their 55+ menu was varied and I selected the "Build your own omelet"... The service was fast and courteous and waitress was very attentive in keeping coffee carafe filled..

My wife and I have been eating here for about 20 years now, or however long it has been since the doors opened. We find one characteristic of the places we visit over and over again -- consistency. And this place has it in spades. I favor breakfast, usually one of their tasty Eggs Benedict combinations or a Tasty Twelve... More

Our family of 7 was staying at the Courtyard and did not want to eat breakfast at the Bistro in the hotel, so we opted for Perkins. Everyone in the family was very pleased with what they ordered. Omelets were large and very good. Potatoes are the best! Other things ordered by various family members came in large portions. Plates... More

This restaurant has a bad reputation in the area for having poor service. This visit was no different. We were promptly seated by the hostess/cashier. There was only one server that we saw. We waited and waited. We spotted her chatting it up and giggling with someone who appeared to be more than a customer. After 15 minutes and no... More

Perkins has been a Bristol staple for years. Although sometimes over shadowed by some of the newer "trendy" restaurants, you can always count of a great meal at a great price. Their other big positive is the attention of their staff, excellent! I like a soup and salad at lunch and their tomato bisque is amazing.

If you cannot find the breakfast you want here, you cannot find it anywhere. A huge breakfast selection awaits. We had good service from a friendly waitress, the food came quickly, and was exactly as ordered. Nothing fancy, but you would not expect anything fancy from Perkins. Tip: For those over 55, there is a great senior menu that offers... More

We stopped here at 9 pm and there were only a few people in the restaurant. It took forever for someone to come to our table and that was after I inquired where our server was. He made a rude comment about "great here comes someone else...when am I going get a break". I had never eaten at a Perkins... More

Today, my family and I went to celebrate Mother's day. I am pregnant and have been craving strawberries for the last 4 days without the chance to get any. I was so excited when I sat down to find that their spring menu was all strawberry items. I ordered the strawberry french toast. First, my drink we brought out incorrectly... More
