If you're not familiar with a town, or can't find a local mom 'n' pop breakfast cafe, you can almost always rely on Perkins for consistently good quality breakfasts at reasonable prices. The Perkins in Watertown South Dakota is no exception. The place was busy at 6:45am, the wait staff alert and the food came quickly and piping hot.

This Perkins is loved by it's community and is always busy. For us it was a good place to take some elderly family. We can count on friendly service, good comfort food served the way it's supposed to be, and not a long wait time. The restaurant is cheery and it seemed as if people cared about their jobs, and...

This Perkins just completed a very nice updated remodeling for their interior. The one negative of this restaurant is their overflow back room which they use too much. It does not have a great feel. I think too often people are placed here before better seating is taken. Today in that section a larger group came in and were a... More

The breakfast options are limitless but you have to have the pancakes. They are out of this world and they offer them in many choices. The muffins are Huge and delicious.
