We wanted to try Denny's as it seemed to be an American classic establishment but we regretted it instantly. The food was not great, the coffee was completely un-drinkable and the service was poor. Took far too long to get our food given the fact that there wasn't many people in the restaurant.

I've passed by this location many times and never really noticed it was here. On this particular occasion I had time to kill and decided to give them a try-what a nice surprise! The place was nice and clean and the interior was in good shape and not well used as is my usual Denny's location. The server was very... More

The restaurant was clean and reasonably busy. I was seated quickly and coffee was right there. The waitress was friendly, fast and kept the coffee topped up. My food was out quickly and was hot and tasty. The portion was pretty big. This is definantly one of the better Denny's.

Stopped here for a late morning breakfast. Restrooms were not super clean but I ordered anyway. Waitress was friendly but they were out of orange juice. I got some berry juice which tasted like strange Koolaid mix. Eggs I ordered not runny but they were served runny - so I did not eat. Hash browns were good and so were... More

Friends and I had breakfast here. It's just at the edge of downtown. We were seated and served quickly. It's typical Denny's food, but it was all delicious for us - and we've had some since that wasn't so good. Service was good.

This Denny's is right on the main street, as you come into the downtown Monterey area. Most people know the menu at Denny's. This is one of their typical locations, only in a beautiful area...

Quick meal at Denny's and we had a loaded veggie omelette which was only average in taste and also a Bourbon chicken skillet which was rather salty .Did not stay for desserts as it was getting late .Service was pleasant.
