Just moved back to Florida. Waiting for moving van so no way to cook. Decided to try Perkins after not living near one in a long time. Nice sandwiches and great friendly service.

While this restaurant is showing its age..
He breakfast was superb.
I had the pork chop breakfast. It was tasty, tender, and 3/4" thick. My associated the blueberry pancakes which he rated as excellent. The bottomless coffee pot continued to serve tasty/hot delicious brew.
Will return after the renovation.

I have always liked Perkins as I travel throughout the country. However, the Sarasota restaurant is a HUGE difference. My first visit was a Friday evening and they were under staffed. We were finally greeted by a server who said; "What do you guys want?" This was the beginning of a subpar meal. The blueberry pancakes had a total of 10 blueberries for three pancakes and they were over cooked.

Another friend wanted to go to Perkins after the theater on the following Thursday evening (tonight). There was one Server in the entire restaurant and the hostess was helping deliver meals to tables. The French Silk Pie was either old or had been frozen more than once. The texture was horrible and the two bites left a terrible taste in my mouth. Again the server (not the same one) came to the table with no "hello," but simply said; "What can I get you?"

I say strike Two and this Perkins is OUT!

The restaurant Wasn’t busy on a Friday evening-that should have been the first sign. Waitress took forever to come to the table and was not friendly at all. They wouldn’t make substitutions when we asked to switch breakfast meat for an extra egg for a vegetarian. Food was not horrible but not the greatest. The waitress was bussing her own tables, although she wasn’t really busy. No offer if drink refills either.

We visited this restaurant early afternoon and the salad I ordered was perfect. If you are staying next door at La Quinta there is a 10% discount so ask for it
