With the end of tourist season, I guess they don't expect to many people over the noon hour. We stood at the fron for 20 minutes to get seated. There were 2 people ahead of us, and maybe 20 people in the cafe. The hostess was trying to wait on guests, cook, and serve them. After finally getting seated, it was 20 more minutes to get our drinks. After our orders were taken.....we sat for a full hour to get our food. It was cold by the time we got it.

My expectations were low, as I was expecting a Denny's type experience. Pleasant surprise to discover the food was better quality, the restaurant was very clean, the server quite entertaining--overall it was a place I intended to revisit the very same trip. Especially since my hamburger filled me too much so I had to skip out on the pie. Will definitely be back.

I was so glad to go to a Perkins again, since these are a rarity in Illinois and I always loved Perkins. We weren't let down here. Service was a tad slow, but they were a little busy. The food was very good though. The biscuits and gravy were awesome,crispy bacon, and the seasoned breakfast potatoes (not the hashbrowns) were the best i've ever had!

We made the mistake of going to Perkins for a late breakfast. It was quite busy so I understand the wait to be seating. What I don't understand was the service that we received from the waitress. The people seated across the aisle from us sat after us, received food before us and left before we even received our food. It was close to 50 minutes waiting for our food. Not only was the wait for the food unacceptable...so was the service. Our waitress didn't once check in on us during that time. Never asked if we needed refills or even a sorry for the wait. If you like poor service and waiting a long time for mediocre food, then this Perkins is for you. If you want good service, skip this Perkins and go somewhere else.
