A recent grumbling in the stomach and need for new Blog material found me at Perkins Deep Creek Lake recently. If this is the first review you have read of mine I must disclose that chain restaurants rarely are places I like to eat. In a nutshell my feelings after leaving where that I had yet again been processed by another cog in the corporate food machine.
Located in McHenry the heart of Deep Creek Lake the restaurant is clean and easy to find. There is nothing spectacular about the decor that would make me think I was in Deep Creek anymore than Holton, Kansas. There is a bake shop on premises but I know the sprinkling of local bakeries that blow these offerings away.
Service was similar to buying a soda from a machine. We got what we ordered and paid. However for personality the machine gives that satisfying clunk sound on delivery. The menu definitely has something for everyone all of it lacking much in the way of complex flavor or uniqueness. What one might expect from lab tested recipes designed to make money and save time. Manufactured rather than made.
As for the prices again they seemed to be right in the middle. As the whole place is nothing that made me say I could never eat here again and nothing that would make me rush back or take friends. Perkins at Deep Creek Lake is just well there.
