OK, everyone knows what a Perkins is and I just could not see myself going there, too bright, no beer, nothing terribly interesting on the menu, but actually my visit was incredibly pleasant. The service is over the top. Not in every Perkins but in THIS Perkins service is super friendly. I was sitting by the entry so I heard... More

We ate a nice Sunday breakfast here and we loved it. The server was very nice and the food was fresh and hot. This may be a chain but this location is ALWAYS busy and does a great job. Try the mammoth muffins! The atmosphere is good and the décor is very nice. Be careful in parking lot! Tons of... More

We were looked after here very well - we had 6 week old twins with us. Good food from one of their deals. Again the wild berry pie at Perkins is one of the best deserts you can get at any restaurant. Perkins is always on our visit list when we are in Minneapolis visiting family.

Stopped here Friday evening for a quick dinner after picking up a family member from the airport nearby. The service was excellent, the staff who seated us were very friendly as well. There was a slight issue with our order but it was rectified immediately by our server so everything was grea!

Stopped for dinner and we were seated immediately. I had the tilapia/shrimp and my husband had the build-a-breakfast. Both were really good. The waiter, Tom, was fantastic. Made us feel very welcome and was very attentive. If we are in that area again we would definitely stop. I highly recommend this Perkins.

Perkins has updated their menu and it is very good. Breakfast is always good there and a good place for meetings or family. I like their counter service.

If you are looking for an all day breakfast for not much money this is a great place to visit. I had two fried eggs, bacon and small bit of fruit salad (the fruit salad was very ordinary) and 3 pancakes under $9 US. The pancakes here are really good, If you are into pancakes should should try them. I... More

First visit here ever and can't believe how large the dining room is at this location. We had a new server who did a good job waiting on us. However, it took several minutes for her to come back after she brought our beverages in two different trips. She was super friendly though and could tell that she enjoyed working... More
