Our first stop at this Perkins and we had a great experience. Very friendly staff, our waitress, Kim, was terrific. I ordered the Blueberry Muffin French Toast breakfast and it was delicious! Would gladly eat here again!

This is the first time I have eaten at a Perkins Restaurant, and I was impressed. We had a basic breakfast and it was solid. Eggs, sausage patties and a side of pancakes. Staff were definitely on the ball; orders came out in record time....Food quality was excellent. The property was immaculate. Absolutely no complaints (though the price was a bit stiff given New York State). Don't hesitate to stop here.More

I have been using this restaurant for breakfast for two weeks while I was quarantined by Cornell university before the start of the school year. Consistently very good breakfast served all day long. Real food for a very reasonable price!

Soft music.. Efficient, friendly waitress! We used our Buy one get one free coupon with each of us buying a drink (coffee, decaf. tea). Husband got turkey dinner. I got Classic burger topped with tomato, onion, & lettuce, fries and a small, tossed side salad....Delicious! Relaxing, early afternoon meal for us 2 seniors on our way home from a class at the Syracuse Apple Store! Too full to partake of any of their bakery/dessert offerings. Instead, take-out cup for the balance of my decaf tea w/lemon. Hit the spot on a cold day! We have only good things to say about this place! I like being able to buy a small side salad with my meal! We have only good things to say about this place.More

Good food. We don’t have Perkins restaurants left where I live so it was a yummy blast from the past. It’s connected to the hotel behind it so that was nice. Don’t leave with out pie.

This has become one of my favorite places for a quick dinner in Cortland. I almost always get breakfast for dinner, and they do a really good job. Most recently I had an omelette with mushroom and Swiss cheese, and it was outstanding. My husband...gets the breakfast about half the time (usually a short stack of buttermilk pancakes), but the last time we were there he had fried shrimp, fried cod, and french fries – it was one of the options on the special menu - And he said it was excellent.More

My family and I spent two nights at the Clarion Inn and Suites in Cortland New York on 30 September and 1 October 2019. The motel gives vouchers to the attached Perkins restaurant for their breakfast service. We arrived early for breakfast at approx. 0700....We were quickly seated. In just a couple minutes our waitress Cindy came to our table. Cindy was bright and cheerful. Cindy took our order and delivered our meals quickly and accurately. There were several other tables in our area that CIndy was waiting on. I noted she was going from table to table on a regular basis and also greeting customers as they walked in the door. Cindy reminded me of a bright yellow bumble bee going from flower to flower in the early morning sunlight without stopping. I had two eggs, smoked sausage, and white toast with butter. My over medium eggs were perfect to my order, I did not care for the sausage, it was prepared well, I just did not care for sausage that particular morning. People can mess toast up, but my toast was good to go. My meal was good and my wife and kid said they enjoyed their meals as well. I am attaching a picture of our food from the second day. With our motel vouchers this was all free. The inside of Perkins was bright and clean. The interior was just like any other Perkins I have been to throughout the county. If you order coffee they bring a small picture of coffee along with your cup of coffee. There are free newspapers by the front door and a small mini library box on the sidewalk to the entrance. The men's bathroom was clean. I recommend breakfast at the Perkins in Cortland, New York.More

My husband and I both got the Eggs Benedict. They were very good. We also got some great fruit bowls--very fresh. I got the Hash browns which were not very good. It tasted like the oil they used had gone bad. My husband got diced...potatoes and they were very good. Great service.More

Perkins is located right off 81. My hotel was in front of the restaurant and we were hungry. I did not expect much. We were seated. The waitress looked very tired. She brought the greasy food. Nothing really special. We paid and left. It is...a good stop with A/C, bathroom and warm or cold food.More

Service was fast, attentive and very courteous. Menu was a regular Perkins menu -- nothing unusual that I could see. Food was abundant and good-quality.

We made a wrong turn and found this quaint and delightful respite from the ordinary. We were a tad hesitant, believing the menu would emphasize breads and heavily caloric desserts. Food fantastic; place elegant and service great

Plenty of parking (paved), met upon entry by female hostess and seated, a friendly and personal waitress served us, large selected on the menu too choose from, ordered but waited a lengthy time too receive our orders, heathy portions, seat custion needed replacement since it...was taped, women's room was filthy but men's room clean except garbage receptacle was over flowing and needed to be emptied, friendly personalities from all staff encountered, reasonable prices and delicious food. With a little elbow grease in cleaning this could be better but still a chain Perkins!More
