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

I enjoyed the food here. Everything from service to price is pretty average, but I would eat there again for sure. A nice stop the way if you're on the road traveling.

I met my son and grandson at Perkins on 12/23/13. I remembered they had a really good breakfast. There was a leak in the ceiling near where we sat with buckets on the floor to catch the water. My son had the chicken biscuits with gravy, which he liked, and I had the pancakes with eggs, bacon, italian sausage and... More

Staff was pleasant and quick. We all ordered breakfast. Our eggs, pancakes and bacon were not anything special. Only 2 small pieces of bacon and pancakes were big but nothing special. Have had better at other chains for less cost.
