I have tried this Perkins many times thinking each time will be different. But ultimately the service is awful. I have stopped trying.

We met my in-laws here for dinner and as a half way point to drop off the kids with the grandparents for a few days. Perkins really needs to put some $$ back into cleaning up and renovating their restaurants. This particular Perkin needs a good cleaning everywhere, the bathrooms need some work and the staff are basically walking zombies.... More

My wife and I stop here for breakfast quite often and it's good food and service. After stopping for dinner again we will probably not waste any ones time again. The service was not good! The very young help played tag with each other without taking our order. We finally did order and the food was delivered about 25 minutes... More

This restaurant has good food, friendly staff, but the restaurant is in need of a facelift and the men's room was in a messy state and needed to be cleaned, bad, the wife said the ladies restroom had a clogged toilet when we arrived and they were just trying to remedy that when we were leaving

We usually love Perkins for what it is - I mean it is what it is, right? You don't go there expecting a Michelin star restaurant or fine dining experience, but you do expect a pretty standard level of customer service and food, right? Wrong. This Perkins was pretty bad across all aspects. We walked in and waited to be... More

I didn't expect much, not a chain-restaurant lover, and I also like wine with my dinner. The baked salmon was very good, and the iced tea was fresh. The service was excellent.

Never before have we had such poor service and issues with our food as we did yesterday. I understand that people have bad days but good lord. We arrived at 8pm hoping to have a nice relaxing late dinner after 4 hours of travel. Seriously over twenty minutes just to be seated. While our server bussed tables, chatted with friends... More

Most of our experiences at Perkins in various locations have been good - and this one was no exception. Even though they were busy at lunch time - including a busload - we were served very efficiently. As usual, the food was very good - this time we opted for their all-day breakfast selections.

Thank TwigDi
