We have a sectioned off “room” in the back where we meet up. As you enter the restaurant go all the way to the back and right; we meet behind the portioned space in the back corner of the restaurant.
It can get pretty crowded in Perkins, especially during prime-time. Please be patient with our wait staff and be courteous to people needing to get through. We realize that during our busiest times at the meet often times there is very limited tables and chars. It’s more often then not standing room only. If you want to get a table outside our reserved area to eat please get seated by a host, rather then just grabbing a table in another section of the Restaurant. Do not block the fire exit in the rear corner of the room.
