Welcome to the Perky Cafe

Good Times Since 1950!

Meet the Owner

Q: Why and when did you decide to invest in The Perky?

A: Why not? In December of 2011 i purchased The Perky from a long time owner and friend. Going to tired bars in the area with medocre food goT old quick. If you can't find it, make it. 

Q: Some aspects of The Perky have stayed the same, but what did you change?

A: It is still a work in progess; there are so many things I still invision doing. Cara is our one holdover! We have added a second bar, put in a real Men's room which allows for two Women's with a facelift, all new Glycol tap system, switched to a smoke-free enviornment, and the outside recently got an entirely new face! Aside from that we have included the BBQ aspect which has been a huge hit. Who doesn't like a good home smoked meal?

Q: Your smoking is out of this world! Where does the technique come from?

A: From training and tasting all over. The technique comes from schooling in Pittsburgh, PA. The taste comes from a combination of Savanah, Georgia as well as Lancaster County. If we taste something and like it, we make it. If we don't like it, we find a way to make it better!

 Q: Describe the Perky to folks that have never been here before.

The Perky is a local casual bar that's all about great food and fun times! We have the best food around, lots of games, and friendly bartenders!!

We are now a non-smoking establishment so everyone is welcome. For those still trying to quit, smoking is still permitted on our porch.

We have lots to offer including Pool, Pinball, quizzo, sports, tons of TV's, and the best food and drink specials in town!!

Come out to Oaks best kept secret......and find out what you've been missing!!
