“Not Returning”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Slow service, plus the food just wasn't good - and then the dining area smelled like mildew, not what you want while having breakfast.

“Please clean the bathroom”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

By far most disgusting bathroom experience in a long time. It smelled like an unwashed urinal, floor was sticky, not cool. Service was typical, although I got a small glass for ordering water, which I didn't appreciate.

“Very Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

We have eaten here several times now in our travels. The food is seldom hot (especially the soup). There seems to be a lot of turnover in the wait staff. Our waitress didn't listen to our orders so we received what she thought we ordered. It worked out, but...

“Typical Perkins”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We won't eat at the local Perkins but thought we'd give an out of town location a shot. We had to wait around 15 -20 minutes even though there were at least 7-8 tables open. Other than that we had decent service. The waitress was nice and attentive. All of our food was correct and good. Only complain was too much food! I ordered an omelet that came with a choice of potato and a giant muffin. When traveling, taking leftovers isn't always an option. Will probably go back, and be prepared for a wait to get seated.

“Acceptable food but lacking in service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

The food was hot and not overdone like the last few times we've been here. ( stopped going for several months due to declined food quality. ) Tonight the service was lacking. Waitress walked off without taking my husband's drink order, was short with us when we asked for additional time, billed us for food that never made it to the table, and was generally put off to do her job.
