Visited with my grandparents. The manager was sitting in the front on a bench,didn't acknowledge anyone. Our waitress was new and talked really low and didn't have very good training. My grandpa got the cod fish and they brought it out on a big plate,2 small pieces of fish. That was very disappointing to have a big plate with nothing... More

This looks like a newer Perkins. Food tasted great with quick service. Great location right off the highway with plenty of parking. Its like Dennys but better!

Whenever we are in Kingsport before lunch, we always stop at Perkins. I get a omelet and breakfast potatoes. Then I get a blueberry muffin. It is all so good. The muffins are amazing.

We find ourselves about once a month in Kingsport and because as big as Knoxville is, we don't have a Perkins (the one we had, closed, it was crap). Anyway, every time we are up that way we go to Perkins for brunch. Until this last time it had been fabulous. They were busy, I will give them that so... More

The food was pretty consistent with other Perkins we have visited. It wasn't great, but it was terrible either. The restaurant seemed to be a favorite of local senior citizens and it was enjoyable to watch the servers interact with the other patrons. Everyone there was obviously enjoying themselves and it made for a pleasant atmosphere.

We stopped here after a long day of driving. The server was pleasant and recommended specials. Salmon was out of this world. We asked that she set back slices of lemon meringue pie, which she did. When you go to Perkins, always get pie!

This restaurant has dedicated folk serving. The food is fresh frozen and the prices are very low. There is no alcohol served and a person staying at the Comfort Inn gets 10% off. The table was clean and the salt and pepper worked.

Friendly staff--awesome manager, Trigg! Food is always good and the recent renovation has the place looking great. Don't forget free pie Mondays.

We stopped here on our way through town, traveling toward home. We were pretty famished, and this restaurant was convenient and fit the bill. Since we hit it after the lunch rush, it wasn't very crowded, so we were seated immediately and got really good service. I had the patty melt, and gobbled it up! It was the best patty... More
