New menu, Dinner, lack enough choice. No Beef, Pork selections except limited choices on 55 plus menu. The dinner menu is chicken, fish, Shrimp. Of course they have hamburgers. On dinner menu what happened to Hamburger steak, steak, pork chops, ham, etc. I guess it's back to IHOP or Denny's.

We went to Perkins on Jan.14, 2017, the day an ice storm was predicted to fall upon St. Joseph. There were few customers, so our service was prompt. Our food was piping hot, and fresh! There is a large menu for breakfasts, and medium sized menu for lunches and dinners, but a person con find something sumptuous, from Rueben sandwiches,... More

Took almost an hour to get our meals. Wasn't busy at all, we were there 30 minutes before the people who were there when we walked in finally got their meals. The waitress was polite and quick, the hostess looked very Unprofessional in a skin tight sweater over her bulging tummy. Menu is extremely limited. Won't be going back.

Food was good, Meatloaf dinner was tasty, Tomato Basil soup, very good. The manager was cooking that day so getting food was a little slow, Heard people around us say they had waited an hour, ours wasn't near that long but longer than usual. Glad we weren't on our lunch hour. I thought our server could have been a little... More

It took forever to get our food. My daughter said good thing I ordered lunch because breakfast is over! Come on cooks, where are the hash browns? So SMALL and thin so you're hoping I think you gave me some. My son that never eats the entire meal, did so. I wouldn't waste my money here again.

It was at 2am on Saturday morning, so I can kinda understand this. All I wanted was to order a salad to go and I was here till almost 3am before they had my order ready. Slow service. Good salad.

We met my dad and his friend at this restaurant. They were already seated with menus and beverages. We waited quite a while (about ten minutes) for someone to come offer us menus and take our drink order. My husband was brought the wrong muffin. His first order of eggs looked like they had stuck to the skillet and the... More

Every time I eat here I regret it. The wait staff are always so unprofessional. The waitress expressed her disgust out loud when we were seated in her area. Also, the whole time we were there, you could hear the kitchen staff yelling at each other. Ridiculous. The food wasn't horrible, but wasn't great either. My hashbrowns were burnt to... More

This place offers half price pie after 9:00 p.m. and it's very, very good! Funny that our hotel didn't recommend this place to us...
