We have regular appointments in the area and like to stop for a meal afterwards. I'm trying to eat healthier and wondered what I would eat. Our waitress was very helpful by telling me about the new chicken sausage links (Very tasty) and suggested the oatmeal to have also. Nice combo & very filling. The hubby had the Sausage Smasher....

Noticed the Perkins opened by my hotel and decided to check it out. The restaurant was clean and fresh, looked great! Food was good. Steak madalians were more done than I prefer, but still tasted great. Shrimp were great. Looking forward to my next visit.

Service was slower than it should have been. The food was good and substitutions were no problem. Don't leave without trying something from the bakery. The server was very sweet, but the manager was wearing a shirt with huge water spots on it. Maybe they were short staffed that morning. However, I would try this restaurant again for the variety...

Perkins is a great all-time family restaurant. I go here for breakfast and this time for dinner. Service is quick and fast. Bathroom can use some tender loving care but most of the time it's clean. It is open 24 hrs and that's what I like about this place. Only in the Midwest and Wisconsin will you see this restaurant.... More

I've been coming to this place the last 10+ years. A racist incident with the manager "Robyn Kurtti" recently was inappropriate after I had been cooperative with her request at the time. She should not have brought up my race, made a rude remark about it, then even tried to relate to me by saying her grand-daughter is also the... More

We just had a meal at this Perkins. My husband has enjoyed a simple meal of a bowl of chicken noodle soup and a piece of lemon meringue pie for decades. On this visit he was surprised to be served the smallest portion of chicken noodle soup in a square bowl on a large rectangular plate. When he spoke to... More
