We went to lunch and the three adults ordered salads and the two kids ordered pancakes - it took 45 minutes!! No apology whatsoever. Perkins used to be a good down home meal, but no more. Not worth giving up this much time for a mediocre meal and crappy service.

I've never had a bad meal at our Perkins here in Northfield, MN. From fish to pancakes it is always as expected. I enjoy the 55 plus meals. Portions are just right. Staff are always nice and quick to your needs.

This Perkins was pretty bad. We waited forever for our food. Our waitress wasn't very attentive either. Although the food is average the service is so poor that we don't recommend going here. We would probably get better service in a prison dining hall! Avoid!

I love the Grannies Country Omlette. I always say I'm going to order something different, but never do.
