“Nice family style restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Mitchell's Perkins is a family style chain restaurant close to the interstate and many motels. Service is quick, the menu a mixture of all day breakfasts, sandwiches, salads and American entrees. Good value.

“Good family restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Perkin's always has a great variety on the menu, plus the specials of the moment.

No matter what your order, it is well-prepared and tastes good.

If you want to treat yourself, their pies are good, and the Giant Muffins are great.

“Very good family style dining--great food and staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

This was my first visit to a Perkins and i asked our waitress for help. She guided me to a wonderful 55 and over breakfast. It started with a muffin, tall, moist and full of fruit. Perfect with my coffee. Shortly after it was gone, the rest arrived. I wanted to sample both the bacon and sausage and they were both excellent. My sunny side up egg was flawless and the home fries she recommended were crisp on the outside, moist and meaty on the inside. Wow.

Coffee kept flowing into my cup since i was given my own thermal carafe and was able to refresh as i liked. Others in my group enjoyed strawberry pancakes and waffles. And i mean enjoyed! They both had the bacon, which was crisp, thick and delicious. Wonderful smoked flavor. They had scrambled and easy over eggs, both perfectly prepared.

We had a super experience here. i don't know if all Perkins are this good, but if this is a typical example of their work, they have it down to a fine science.

If You are in Mitchell, they are well worth visiting.

“Perked up Perkins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014 via mobile

Recently, we had occasion to stay in Mitchell, SD. We hosted an outing for our grandson and his best friend.they truly had a good time. We had an interesting evening dinner experience, but made up for it with breakfast at Perkins.

Going to Perkins is never a guarantee of dining or service satisfaction. On the contrary we have approached them with the trepidation of a loosing gambler. Will it be aces or jokers? We had heard good reports from friends about the Mitchell Perkins, and we thought the worst case would satisfy the guys craving for pancakes and scrambled eggs.

Our first impression was the like new, neatness of the place. Secondly our hostess gave us a great greeting and seated us promptly. In short order a very professional waitress had our coffee and began directing the boys toward the best selections for them. Wrapping the whole thing up with our orders. The coffee was a cut above the usual chain coffee. The service was not only fast, the presentation was excellent. The prices were moderate, the quality was above average. The boys even stopped long enough to moan a couple, "very good" messages.

We left Perkins with A far better feeling about Mitchell's dining opportunities. Promising ourselves we would stop at this Perked up Perkins the next time we were in the area.

“hockey tourney trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Was great service we came in was seated quickly and more of our team started coming in and we started "multiplying" everytime our waitress left more would come in. She asked when we were going to stop coming in. Even with that she kept thing rolling and took care of us, we only had one food mis-order but wasn't a major deal since the kids were switching tables and positions made it hard to keep track. She did an outstandings jjob and food was great.
