I took my mom (76) and her aunt (93) here from Toledo. The entire party enjoyed it. Waitress punctual with appetizers, lunch, coffee, etc. Very handicap accessable.

Understaffed Many empty tables but not enough staff to serve and once seated long wait for food. Food good once arrives. Nice 55+ selections

Took my mother here and we had a very good meal (she is 91). We split a meal and had plenty of food. Service is somewhat slow, so don't expect fast food. Good experience.

We've eaten at few times at Perkins, but this was the first time we were sorely disappointed. We ate a late breakfast on a Thursday. The scambled egg (I should've taken a photo) I ordered looked like a piece of yellow rubber on my plate, akin to those hotels that have breakfast in warmers. There's no way that little thing...

This is due to the fact that when I went here they were all out their signature dishes because they ran out of rice?? What chef runs out of rice in their kitchen. I settled for the salmon but it was barely warm when I got it,

We eat at Perkin's every Sunday after church. It is a little crowded but is to be expected. The regulars are always there too. We have never had a bad meal there. The waitresses all know us, so that helps with the service. They sort of just learn what you want. The breakfast menu has a $4 menu, I get... More

Several menu choices with even 55+ deals. I enjoy the cinnamon rolls and usually get them to go. If you buy 3 you get 3 free of these as well their muffins. Something for everyone to choose from kids to adults.

I had rather go do the road to Cecil's and eat as the food is better, the service here at Perkins sucks.

I was a bit early for supper, right about 5. Was seated and ordered in a reasonable amount of time. But, once my food was delivered wasn't checked on again. Drink sat empty on the edge of the table for most of my meal. Didn't have a bill, so just went up to the register to pay and again had... More
