Best breakfast/lunch value anywhere. Service is pretty quick (except after 9:00pm) and prices are great with fresh food being served all day, including breakfast...anytime. Nice 55 and over menu too.

I had never been to a Perkins before. If this location is the norm I will not be going back. My husband and I were greeted with a forced good morning. We weren't sure which waitress was ours at first because two would come by alternately. The food took FOREVER to come and it was just eggs and pancakes. It... More

Ok, go when you want good food but always save room for pie. Me I love the peanut butter pie. Until next visit will have great memories of pie. Other family members favor the berry pie. Your choice

We go here occasionally and are never disappointed. The wait staff and everyone is OH, SO NICE! The orders are always done the way we request them to be done. Like I like my potatoe pancakes a bit more done and my breakfast sausage, too! They are never over done. . . My husband likes his bacon soft . .... More

I love fruit pies and if you love pie nothing is better than Perkins Diner choices they have the best sugar-free berry pie pumpkin pie apple pie various other cream and fruit pies and plenty of other desserts they also have a really good salad that I get with avocados on it that's better than some of the high-end restaurants...

Not only did I have a sullen waitress -( never gave her name, I had to find it on the top of my bill - it was Shanoa) but the 20% coupon was not honored and the food was not all that great. I was told the reason the coupon was not honored - it does say off TOTAL BILL... More

It's great for a late night breakfast (or any meal). We stopped in after 9pm and were greeted warmly. We both ordered breakfast entrees and they were delivered promptly and hot. This is the perfect spot when you need a bite, especially after "normal" dining hours. Don't forget to take home some fresh baked muffins for the morning!

Met a friend here for lunch. We each had lunch salads--he the Cobb and me the Southwestern-- Crisp and fresh with what seemed like homemade dressing but seemed a little expensive compared to First Watch and Panera. Service was attentive. Atmosphere lacking and tired décor. The pies and muffins are the attraction here!

Althouh busy, snow birds, for me not a great selection breakfast serving, rather costly for what you get. Took visiting family members there but should have taken the to Wee Blu Inn, country fair food and plenty of it, plus price.
