Saying goodbye to an old friend Perkins restaurants have been around the upper Midwest for decades. While similar to appearance and menu, in our experience each is different— especially in the cleanliness of the dining room and the quality of the food. The service wait food quality at the Perkins in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota was so awful it finally closed. The store on Highway 7 in Minnetonka was so slow in serving pie and coffee after a late night movie we stopped going there. The store along I-94 at the Black River Falls exit was always a treat for the kids, especially because of the giant orange moose. Recently, while in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and not knowing the area, we settled on Perkins thinking it was a reliable standby. Were we disappointed. The store was, literally, falling down. The iron railing along the sidewalk leading to the front door was bent away from the building at a 45° angle and the sidewalk was all busted up. Inside, the place was so dimly lit dirty we had all we could do to leave. However, the Perkins on Minnesota Highway 100 and Vernon Av, in Edina, has for decades been far and away the best, and consistently best, Perkins of all. Morning, noon or night, summer or winter, it didn’t matter. The place was clean, the bakery items looked fresh, the service was good and the food was consistently good. Whenever we’d get a hankering for comfort food at a reasonable price, This Perkins was our go-to choice. We are saddened to learn this Perkins, the best Perkins, is headed for demolition, to be replaced by yet another condo building. We will miss THIS Perkins! Thanks for the memories.
Ordered through a delivery app. Very simple order.How do you forget a Milkshake and Ginger ale? Oh and felt the need to leave a sausage link out.I’ve now been on hold for 18 minutes to simply ask if they forgot it or our Delivery Driver is responsible? Which he stated he did not.Edina Perkins, looking forward to meeting you in person. You’re in Edina, MN, expectations are very High.
Satisfied with service and food. Omelet was full and hearty.
Nothing fancy, but reliably good comfort food for a great price. ?
Perkins! What more is there to say? Classic diner vibe, went on a Sunday night around 6-7 pm. No wait. Only a handful of other tables seated.Our super friendly and attentive server was Bre. It was fun to listen in on her conversations with several elderly guests that are clearly regulars.We ordered a Coke, Bottomless Decaf Coffee, and a small Orange Juice for beverages and the Twice As Nice and Triple Egg Dare Ya combos for food.Twice As Nice had 2 eggs, hash browns, and 3 pancakes.Triple Egg Dare Ya had 3 eggs, breakfast potatoes, 3 sausage links, 3 strips of bacon, 2 pancakes, and 2 pieces of french toastIt was so much food but our bill was only $30.38 (not including tip)!!!!Will likely go again.Minus 1 star because it is a chain.
Too bad I have to give a whole star! This may have been a nice place at some time in the past, but those days are long gone. An elderly friend & I had stopped in for dinner but there was a wait. We gave our names to the host and went back to have a seat while we waited. Within a few minutes the couple behind us were called for a table. Apparently out of sight and you are forgotten. They encourage customers to go elsewhere unless they're a fimiliar face. We won't be returning. I encourage others to go elsewhere because this one is not going to last long with their rude attitude.
My grandma comes in for breakfast weekly. The staff knows her by name and always takes good care of her. It’s wonderful to know that they care for their regular customers.
It will be so sad to see this Perkins close. It's been a landmark and meeting place for most of my life. New development replacing it. Get there one last time before it's gone!
We all know Perkins. Great breakfast lot's to eat and fast service.
This Edina location was another great experience for breakfast on Sunday. It was great service and awesome food. The manager on duty friendly knew how to do seating so every server had tables and done in a way not to slam the kitchen. Our server was outstanding and provided awesome service. Will be back because this is the best Perkins location in the metro area for service and quality.
Excellent Food, Delicious
Even though they are short staffed we were served quickly and food was delicious
Good clean restaurant. Waitress was great. Hostess was snooty. Cant go wrong with breakfast at perkins.
2.5/5 rounding up to 3 Had intended on going to Hilltop, but they had different hours on Labor Day that weren't posted on their website. I've seen this Perkins from the highway for years and thought, if its lasted this long in Edina, it must be good. I was disappointed to find out it's the same as every other uninspired Perkins out there. Clearly a popular spot with retired locals, they're willing to overlook the dirty dining room, bland food and unfriendly service. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.
The setup is like you would expect at any Perkins. The stage was friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and it was free pie Monday. Over all a good experience
