We were back in the area to see a friend and took her to Perkins because of the good menu and food. What happened? Instead of a friendly greeting at the door, we were seated in a gloomy manner. The food was good, but the service was terrible. Our server had to be asked twice for the simplest things like... More

We are regulars at Perkins and were very disappointed that this Monday when we went to have dinner and pie, that they were sold out. Dinner was still good and we will definitely go back.

We got seated quickly and waited on fast. Our server was very friendly and apologetic but the food took forever. We went for Sunday breakfast but we got seated within 5 minutes. We got our beverages quickly. The food took 45 minutes and some of it was cold. The server offered to replace it but at the point we no... More

went with friends and was very impressed by menu variety (had a chicken dia that was superb) and companions from NC made a special trip because said their pancakes are the best. Very clean, great service, friendly. Definitely would go again (but hard to get into which shows how good it is- value and food quality).

We visited Perkins for dinner and I was very surprised at the variety on the menu. I had grilled chicken over rice with mushrooms an asparagus as a side. I was delicious. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely go back!

Best breakfast/lunch value anywhere. Service is pretty quick (except after 9:00pm) and prices are great with fresh food being served all day, including breakfast...anytime. Nice 55 and over menu too.

I had never been to a Perkins before. If this location is the norm I will not be going back. My husband and I were greeted with a forced good morning. We weren't sure which waitress was ours at first because two would come by alternately. The food took FOREVER to come and it was just eggs and pancakes. It... More

Ok, go when you want good food but always save room for pie. Me I love the peanut butter pie. Until next visit will have great memories of pie. Other family members favor the berry pie. Your choice
