I've been to other Perkin's before, which were fine. This one didn't measure up! It's difficult to mess up a breakfast but guess what! Even the coffee wasn't very good! Oh well!

We come here often (and have had great service and food) but were extremely disappointed in the food and service this go around. There was a large group of high school football players there which may have accounted for some of the bad service. We were never checked on after being given our meal, had MULTIPLE waiters walk past us... More

This is a regular Perkins menu which I like for its variety. Food was well prepared and tasty. Service was excellent.

Older style Perkins. The food is standard Perkins cuisine. Pancakes were Rockstar, French toast was so-so. Definitely better than the breakfast at the nearby Hampton Inn.

I called to order 2 dinner salads. The fellow who took my call could not have been more pleasant or helpful. I made some changes to my salad & he had no problem with changes. Salads were good & just the way I ordered them.

Went there recently for a late dinner after the CyHawk game. It was about 11pm on a Saturday. I was with a group of 4. It wasn't as busy as we were expecting. We were quickly seated. Which was the best part of our experience at Perkins. Our server, who may have been the only one working the whole restaurant,... More

Perkins has been around for a long time, but never fails to deliver. The menu has anything you could want on it for a good hearty breakfast.

We've gotten sick from the food multiple times here. Everything looks and tastes fine but it has hit us before even finishing our meal. The 1st time I ended up in the restroom. We came back a 2nd time hoping the 1st was a fluke and my son got sick right at the table and I when we got home.... More

We pulled off the interstate for dinner. We were looking for a mom and pop place, but nothing sounded great, so we stopped here. We should have stopped at the bbq place next door. We were greeted by what we now know as the manager. He seated us and it took forever to get waited on. I guess they were... More
