Good 24/7 family dining place

A good place to go when everything else is closed. Open 24/7 with a great selection of pies to go with that late nite coffee. A great assortment of different meals to satisfy everyone's needs and some very good late nite specials.

Our eldest son and our daughter had joined us 2 weeks ago for lunch. Everyone found something they liked. My wife and I both love their Sr. Menu. The glazed meatloaf is a favorite of mine. Everyone enjoyed their selection.

Service was lousy. Food was lousy. Ine would expect this to some degree when a place os busy. This was not the case. They were obviously understaffed that night. This is the only Perkins I've ever had this type of experience in.

We were traveling back from Cedar falls to Indiana and stopped to eat here. It was later in the evening so not very crowded. The food was very good and there were several choices on the menu. I had a chicken mushroom dish and my brother had a chipotle dish. We both cleaned our plates. It's been along time since... More

Our waiter was very friendly and he did a great job. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. Even though it was dinner/supper time I ordered off the all day breakfast menu.

We have been very pleased with so many of the Perkins restaurants muffins and pies during our vacation. This one in Coralville was no exception. The Raspberry Cream muffin was very tasty. Very good quick stops for 'take out' items such as the muffins. A nice change from the doughnut chains and for about the same $$$.

After driving twelve hours, this restaurant was a welcome place to relax. The hostess was very friendly and seated us immediately. The wait staff was very efficient and we were served in a timely manner.

They were packed with a bus of seniors, but handled it with grace and composure. We didn't wait long for a table or food. Everything was great, and that seems to be what you always get at a Perkins, no matter where you go. My only complaint is the tidyness of the restaurant. It was demolished with the huge crowd,...

Perkins Restaurants are pretty standard for good food. This time was not so good. It took forever to get waited on then forever to get served and then they got it wrong! By the time we got it all together it was cold. I did mention it on the way out and got the meal free. It was moving in... More

Average food, average service, and average prices. Nothing special, but makes for an okay breakfast. Waitress was a little snotty.
