“Good place to stop on a long trip~”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

It was late when we stopped into Perkins on our 2 week cross country road trip. The food was very good, and since it was after 9 pm, some of the food was 1/2 price, a very nice surprise. The service was very slow, which our waitress also noted, and she therefore, removed our 1/2 price appetizer. I wish I had the name of the waitress, because she was so friendly and helpful - that if we lived nearby this would be a regular stop - asking for her.
Another surprise was that kids eat free on Tuesday - and since our 9 year old grandson was traveling with us, it was very nice. Our grandson said, the kids menu was great and had "lots of choices".

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I was glad to read that the server reacted to your needs and found a remedy. We will continue the Kids Eat Free every Tuesday and Saturday nights from 4pm to 10pm. I hope to see you on a return visit.

“The Perkins that did NOT suck”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

This dining experience was WONDERFUL. The food was delicious, fresh and fast. The service was great - our waitress was sharp, friendly, personable and knew her stuff. Tom, the gentleman who handled our bill was cheerful, efficient and left us feeling great! I was driving Mom cross country and you'd better believe, I want the BEST for MY Mom! You'll find the best at the Perkins in Fairmont, MN, for YOUR Mom, or anyone you want nothing less than the best for! SINCERELY!

“Good Service”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Perkins is Perkins. We visited this location on a roadtrip to WI. Food was okay. I had a salad which was mediocre. Looked good in the menu, not so great in person. My son had chicken fried steak breakfast which he loved. Great muffins as usual and the service was good.

“Becky's wonderful personality is a great way to start the day!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Becky has such a pleasant and welcoming personality that it made the entire meal that much better. I would highly recommend to anyone locally or passing through Fairmont to stop by Perkins and ask for Becky.. You will not be disappointed!
