“Leaves a bit to be desired”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We've eaten here a few times, dinner mostly. The place is never crowded and the food is consistent with the Perkins fare. The problem we have is cleanliness. We usually sit at a booth and there is usually visible dirt & dust caked on the window blinds and sills. This past Friday evening we ordered coffee with our meal and the black pitcher was covered with some kind of visible residue that discolored it. Also the spout on the pitcher had many visible chips in it.

The wait staff is pleasant and attentive to your desires for meal preparation.

My advice: sit at a table and avoid the booths!

“Reliable restaurant”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

This location is on the corner of a major intersection in Toms River. The restaurant is not typically overcrowded and we are often seated immediately. It is clean and the staff is attentive. The food is served in a timely manner and I have never selected a bad meal from their extensive menu.

“Great place for breakfast”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

last time we were here, several years ago, it was so-so. Today it was bright, cheerful, nicely decorated and very clean. The oatmeal/pumkin pancakes were excellent & my husband said same of his eggs & sausage. Service was also friendly and efficient. We shall definitely be back & will not hesitate to try lunch or dinner there. that menu looked very good also.

“Nice for breakfast”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Nice breakfast menu, with daily specials and a senior menu. Eggs, bacon or sausage, toast, pancakes or potatoes were choices for daily specials as well as oatmeal, waffles and French toast. Also available were muffins and other usual fare. Clean restaurant with excellent service. Clean rest rooms. The bill was promptly presented and was serviced at the register.
