    Everything was great except my Cobb Salad was dismal. This is a menu item I have had many times, many places and this one didn't rate. There were clumps of bacon that were so hard they couldn't be separated much less eaten. There were strips of chicken, also cooked hard, draped over the salad, that were hard to cut and very dry. This was my first time at the restaurant and I was expecting a better experience.

    I had high hopes for this new Perrys location but it pales in comparison to the former occupants. We had the clam chowder which was the hit of the table, creamy and lemony something different and fun. If you’re going to this restaurant you have to try this. We also had the calamari appetizer which was pale, unseasoned and totally unremarkable and the potato skins which were over cooked also unseasoned and largely in eatable. . This was my third trip to this newcomer and sadly my last. The service was good to excellent but it was loud. Also, although we had checked the box and my companion had mentioned it when we were seated, no attention was paid to the fact that this was a birthday dinner. Disappointing all the way around…

    Our sandwiches were good except they were a little messy to eat. I had the club and it was hard to get it in my mouth so I had to take out the tomatoes. My friend had the reuben and as she was eating it it was falling apart.

    It's good American fare. The same as the other Perry's, no unhappy surprises. Their brunch menu could broaden with more flexible and that is why it only got 4 stars. More selection of Benedict since they won't do lox or crab cake Benedict even though those items are on the menu, but the server said they get asked for quite often. (Please use this as a light bub moment.) The plain Benedict was good (without meat) the bisque soup was nicely done. The Challah French toast was yummy. The meat Benedict was said to be good. They have a very good hollandaise so that is the key factor. The bloody Mary needs to go back to the drawing board...watery and in a goblet? Just give us a hearty bloody Mary in a thick glass please.

    Made reservations for this evening. It was a little too loud so we asked if we could sit in the other room. They were very accommodating. Food was excellent drinks were a little slow bar was backed up but we got them. Overall a great evening. Thank you.

    Service was really not good but it was really busy and server seemed new so hope that was the case and everyone has an off night! Food was not as good as last week but probably for some of the same reasons! Will definitely be back soon!

    Service was prompt and friendly, our meals were good - definitely large portions, good value. Sandwiches were good, cole slaw was crisp and tasty, the ribs were fall off the bone tender. It does seem that the kitchen has a bit of a heavy hand with the salt, particularly with appetizers. The “house made” chips were remarkable for their blandness: just thinly sliced potatoes, with no spices or any special treatment that you might expect. Overall, a solid 4 stars for an American traditional dining establishment. One ongoing issue is the noise level. They need some sound baffling and/or tapestries or drapes. The restaurant was less than half full yet there was a lot of noise. Too many hard, reflective surfaces.

    Chopped salad seemed to have no dressing. My friend's burger looked dry and a pre-made patty. He asked for fries but got chips instead. Disappointed.

    We were served quickly and the food (salad, fried chicken and veggie burger) were at least replacement level. If that had been the end of the story we probably would've given a three star review. Unfortunately, about ten minutes in, several yellowjackets made their appearance. This is something to be expected at say a picnic at some underfunded public park, but not something one anticipates when laying down a few dollars. Ok, that's not the best. If staff had done something about this, again, I might be inspired to give three stars. As one might conclude from the one star, that's not what happened. Instead, when we mentioned this to the waiter, his eyes went deer-in-headlights for about thirty seconds before saying meekly "meat", and went away. Seriously! No "sorry" or "we can move you elsewhere if you'd like" or "I'll get a Citronella candle" or "let me speak to management and see if there's something we can do". Just wandered away. And it seemed as if he might've been afraid of the yellowjackets, as he didn't bother to return - I had to hunt him down to pay the check, which wasn't difficult because the fool was busy gabbing with some of his fellow waiters. When we were leaving the building, my wife complained to the people at check-in. First, the guy would not let my wife get in more than two words before interrupting with a dismissive response... "Oh yeah, we know about that" he kept saying. No "Sorry about that" or "Let me bring a manager out". Instead, the message we got was "You are very unimportant and you do not matter". Our message to Perry's: "You suck, and we will not return".

    We made a reservation for 5:30pm and were prompt seated upon arrival. Service was very good. Our order was taken in a timely manner. The Ahi Poke appetizer was absolutely outstanding. The dishes we ordered, the Old Fashioned Pot Roast and the Grilled Salmon, were very good and so was the brownie dessert. The empty plates were removed in good time too. Overall, this was a positive experience and we will be back!

    Insanely loud. Large group standing having a cocktail party right next to us. Server had way too many tables and drinks took a long time. We moved to another table that was still crazy loud but didn’t have people standing right next to us. That server was nice but also seemed overwhelmed, nothing cleared and yes they brought a candle in the dessert but it just didn’t feel special. It will be awhile before we return

    I ordered the chicken sandwich on a bun. The bun was not toasted and it was dry. The chicken was cold, dry & the ends very tough. It seemed to me that the chicken was cooked early am & then they sat on a counter and/or heat lamp for hours. Or, the breasts were precooked & then frozen & then defrosted. The best part of the lunch were the fries. They were hot & tasty.
