Stopped in on a Friday evening around 8:30 to have a late dinner. Service was terrible and the food was just ok. We were seated right away but, it took at least 5 minutes for our waiter to come and greet us, then another 5 minutes to get our drinks. Ordered our food and it took another 10 minutes for... More

I stopped for a late afternoon snack before a flight the next morning.It was close to the airport and not a fast food restaurant. They have good food and a good bakery and desert selections.

On the way to a meeting we stopped here for breakfast. Our server was truly excellent. The meals were standard breakfast fare. Full, hearty and tasteful. I am a basic eggs + person so my meal was "just what I wanted/ordered".

Actually was there twice recently! Once for my free Magnificent Seven birthday breakfast and once for dinner when our son was in town! My son chose the Tremendous Twelve for his dinner while I went with their Double catch shrimp/fish and my wife chose the Senior turkey dinner! All were satisfied with meal and service! Decent food, portions, and value!

The service wasn't great. The waitress wasn't very friendly or personable, for someone who works in the service industry. Would it have killed her to smile? The food was what is to be expected at this chain. I normally like the restaurant, but I've been spoiled by the one in Ashwaubenon.

Went here on a trip with a friend. We ended up both getting breakfast for dinner and was not disappointed. Most everything on the menu looked fantastic. I know this place is a chain, but for what you got and for the price, it is definitely some place to consider. I would recommend it. Great food, great staff, clean and... More

Good food, good service, lots of choices, my grandsons ate free. We were very happy we stopped here and only did so because the boys were hungry and we just happened to be passing by. We will stop here again

New Items have been added along with their great breakfasts and seniors menu! I tried the Ragin Cajun and thought it tasted exactly how I thought it should! Sausage, chicken, shrimp, onions, peppers, and a hint of spice over thin noodles! The rest of the group had items from their Senior menu and all seemed to enjoy them!

I've noticed Perkins' changes since the last time I visited their restaurant. I do appreciate the new ease in using their free Wi:fi now, as it was not always easy to access in the past. The new menu is great and there is always something new to try on the $2-$8 menu. What I also noticed was the price of... More
