    Our first visit to Perry’s and we loved it! We were celebrating an anniversary in a group and the servers all acknowledged them! The table rose petals were a sweet touch. We went early on the senior menu and it was great. Our only issue was the crowded dining floor and the noise level with several large groups. We had guys with hearing aids and conversation was difficult as the dining room filled up! Go early if you want it quiet. The patio is lovely and they accommodated our request to move outside for dessert and coffee! It was perfect! A great evening out and we will be back!!!

    Lovely light dinner with a good friend I hadn't seen in a while. Due to the heat, we changed our seating from outdoor to indoor and were thankful the restaurant accommodated our request. Food was excellent, and service was impeccable--perhaps a bit too much so. My dinner companion commented that she thought he was going to ask us to adopt him! His frequent check-ins, while well-intended, bordered on intrusive.

    Finally, a suburban Mexican restaurant with authentic food done in a gourmet fashion. Classy place with outstanding menu, staff, and cocktails. The mole chicken was hot and spice. I would have preferred a whole breast than cut-up pieces, yet very tasty! Excellent Gold and Watermelon Margaritas. Again, it's a great menu. The outside patio was small but relaxing. I highly recommend this restaurant!
