We usually stop at Cracker Barrel for meals while travelling, but based on some recent bad experiences we decided to eat at Perkins, and we were glad we did. We used to visit Perkins when living up north, but down south - there are not many locations. We were seated immediately by a friendly hostess, a very friendly and accommodating... More

My husband and I have breakfast here after church almost every Sunday. We love the service and the consistent quality of the food. The staff is friendly and aims to please.

Good every time we go. We had a birthday breakfast. We had 7 people and the service was excellent. Everything came as ordered and in a timely manner. If you want a good meal visit Perkins.

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.
