We stopped for a late lunch on our way to Salem, VA. Perkins has always been consistent regardless of which restaurant you visit and this was certainly the case here. Our server was Victoria and she was exceptional in every respect. Fast, efficient and attentive. Our food came out of the kitchen, hot, quickly and exactly as ordered. We had... More

Great service and food. I like Perkins for breakfast, and this one is my current favorite. They just do a better job here.

I went to pick my grown son up in Bristol, TN for our annual trip together. I'd been driving all day from Ontario, and we wanted to stop and have a nice dinner together before six hours of driving back to Hershey, PA so we could go to Hershey Park the next morning. We were seated and a young, blonde... More

Food is very good, love the pancakes with breakfast. Need to go there more often. If you visit Bristol, its at I-81 Exit 7, you won't be disappointed.

I know the current term is "comfort food" but this is just plain good "all American" food. Living on the Mississippi gulf coast I am forced to eat shrimp, oysters, mahi mahi and the like. A great meatloaf with mashed potatoes and corn was a rare treat. And lets not forget the apple pie. Couple that with music from the... More

We ate her because we met an aunt while on vacation. As I walked into the restaurant I told my wife, "this is a grandparents place". We were pleasantly surprised! The waitress was very friendly. The menu was huge. Everyone liked their meals. My aunt's side salad looked better than you would expect. At the end of the meal we... More

It had been a while since we'd eaten at a Perkins because there are none near us. It was better than I remembered. It was within very easy walking distance from Quality Inn and Suites, and we went there for breakfast our whole stay. Not a bad item. We ate pancakes, eggs, muffins, toast, omelets, toast and hashbrowns. Saturday's service... More

While traveling through Bristol, TN with my family, we decided to stop and eat at Perkin's. There were very few cars or customers at the time, we thought it was closed. We were seated in the very back of the restaurant. It took approximately an hour and a half for half of the order to come out, and another half... More

Food quality was excellent, but the service was not remarkable. Breakfast at 10:00 on a Friday morning with no more customers than they had should have been faster. No problems other than that.
