This Perkins is across the parking lot from the La Quinta and is a good place for travelers and locals to eat. The French toast was hot, crispy and delicious. The early morning staff were bright and cheerful.

We haven't seen a Perkins in a while ( not many in the South ) but we really enjoyed the breakfast options, the food was really good. Unlimited coffee helped, and the service / servers were quite nice.

This restaurant directly faces the La Quinta Hotel in our opinion it is very good value for money and when we visited in November one of the servers whose name escapes me was a star turn in his own right with an exceptional memory for what you had ordered the food was also very good well worth a visit

We were near a speaker and there was no music but an obnoxious door bell that rang whenever anyone came in or out. It is awful. The pancakes and waffles were fine but our server had way to many tables and was not friendly. The ceiling is filthy and peeling paint which is a health hazard.

A late night stop at Perkins will never happen again. They are understaffed, the place looks dirty, run down and smells dirty as well. Tables and seats are damaged, windows leak when it rains, window caulking is evident and does not solve the problem. If you can get waited on good luck getting the food out of the kitchen. It...

Hubs & I eat out several times a week, & while our dining times are varied, we usually prefer to order breakfast. For that reason, any restaurant that can provide consistently tasty & well-prepared breakfast foods at any time of the day is tops in our book. Perkins' Restaurant, located near Cattlemen/Fruitville Rds, is one of the VERY best. For... More

I do a lot of business in Sarasota. At least twice a month, I come in to get the pancake dippers. Love the bacon that has been placed inside these oblong pancakes. Each time, I am greeted by Connie who automatically brings me coffee and this breakfast. Traveling to SRQ, Perkins in a must for a good breakfast. Don't forget... More

Nice breakfast. 3 out of 4 of us chose 'over 55' meals. 2 egg omelettes are sufficient and a perfect size. Pancakes served with the omelette were great. My oatmeal served with raisins, cream and brown sugar on the side was hot and tasty. Service was great, friendly and knowledgeable. Open environment, comfortable seating. Nice place, we had time to... More
