“Dinner at Peyton Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

The food and service were OK. Hadn't eaten at a Perkins in years. I realize it wasn't the management's responsibility but we were surrounded by people conversing their problems loud enough to be heard with no trouble. Also my husband forgot his hat that night and stopped in the next morning to retrieve it to which he was told "we had a hat in lost and found but it's gone now". If you see someone with a John Deer cap in camouflage. ..

“Service was slow and grumpy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

Waitress took quite a while to even acknowledge we were there. Manager who seated us was unprofessional looking and acting. Food was average, perhaps a little better than once we were finally waited on.

“Our waiter needed more training”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2011

I realize that the nearby college was just starting their fall semester and that may have been why our wait staff had some issues, with new hires likely. Our waiter brought my husband's order with bacon instead of the requested breakfast sausage. I had to ask for siverware when my meal was brought to the table and overall the service seemed slower than it usually is at a Perkins. The restaurant also seemed to be pretty noisy, although it was a Sunday morning and pretty full. Upon checking in, we were told that it would be a 20 minute wait; it was more like 30 minutes.

“Clean plate club”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2010

I had a French Dip with a salad sub'ed for the fries. Just the right amount of food, was able to eat all of both the sandwich and salad.
Place was clean, food was good, staff was helpful. Just the way a family restaurant should be.
