I took my family to Perkins. The servers are great, and getting something to go, after a meal, isn't a problem. I ordered tilapia, veggies and fresh fruit, and it was very good. I really enjoy Perkins coffee. I go to Perkins, every time I am visiting family in Winona, and the food is always good.

I am a traveling OB/GYN (drcathylbagleydotcom) on assignment in the lovely Minnesota city of Winona. I just enjoyed the most wonderful late take out experience at this well known chain much to my surprise! Of note, I rated one in Mountain Iron, MN last year as mediocre having ordered the same dish! Needless-to-say, I visited this one with trepidation. However,... More

I visited this restaurant with my grandkids for Christmas. This was a treat for them and also a part of their Christmas gift. Some of the meals are getting pricey, but; since it was a treat from Grandma & Grandpa we let them choose. Guess what they selected! A great time was had by all.

Dropping relatives off at the Amtrak station, we had time to get some breakfast. you know, Winona is severely lacking in good breakfast places, so to dine close by, Perkins has sort of a monopoly for breakfast. The building housing Perkins is showing some age and dilapidation around the edges, and they share the building with the Winona Tourist Trolley... More

I've always enjoyed Perkins restaurants. Certainly, they are famous for the "never ending" cup of coffee. We had a pumpkin muffin with cream cheese, though I did wonder if it was a day old muffin. I tried the BBQ bacon, cheddar burger and it was delicious. The service was very good and our server was very attentive.

I used to order the Perkins Supreme Burger back in the 1970s and loved the tangy-sweet barbecue sauce. I was pleased when I recently ordered the Perkins BBQ Bacon Supreme, that the sauce was just like I remembered it. Good burger, good fries, etc. Usually, I'm at precision for breakfast and have always enjoyed whatever I order. There's not a... More

We've been to this Perkins many times. But the last few times service and now the food seems to be in decline. We are and the hostess asked a waitress to seat us. When she did that she asked us what we wanted to drink. We gave her our order but then had to wait for our real waiter to... More

My wife and I stopped off at Perkins for a refreshment break on a long drive which was part of a road trip. Service was quick and friendly and although we went in intending to only have coffee and tea the sight and smell of freshly baked cakes and pastries was too much of a temptation so we ordered two...
