Several of their dishes are quite tasty. Service speed is not that great - important to me, but I try to avoid a consistent fast food diet. This turned out to be a convenient compromise - the location is handy to Holiday Inn, Amercinn, and Day's Inn.

In my travels across MN I always keep Perkins on my list for my breakfast stop. Not big on "home style quality" but they do deliver with consistent quality and service. This visit had "The Everything" omelette, which did not disappoint. But keep an eye on the 55-over menu which offers better values and more appropriate potions.

1st time to visit and We were impressed by the quick and courteous service. When breakfast arrived we remarked how fast. The food was great and plenty of it. We will look for Perkins when we go north. They would do well in the South.

We had a late night breakfast after a hockey game. The food was prepared and served within 20 minutes even though the restaurant seemed very busy. Our waitress was courteous, friendly, and made sure everything was just the way we wanted it.

The food is good with a good variety for any time of day or night. They also have good value meals for any type of food you order. Staff friendly and always ready to pour you your first cup of coffee, which the coffee is first rated.

Went there with my boyfriend for breakfast. He got the brisket breakfast it was dried out and flavorless. I got a large breakfast as well and it was terrible. We are new to the area and will never go there again. If you want a good breakfast go to Kenny's oak grill!
