My wife & I go here 2/3 times a month. The fit fare salmon is my usual order and I like to try other items often. The quality is good to very good. The service is very good. The portion size is just right in that it's near what I can eat in one sitting vs having to box up... More

Standard Denny's menu. Popular. Nice attentive service. Good atmosphere with lots of light. Wonky internet.

After a nice weekend in Salinas/Monterey we decided to stop here for breakfast. 1.) The seats and table still had food all over it. When we mentioned it to our server she wiped it with her hand and expected us to sit there. 2.) I was given a dirty coffee cup with air, lent and sticky stuff all over it.... More

The Apple Cran Chk Salad was very tasty and unique. It is nice to have a different taste when I like to eat salad most every day. It adds some variety. Salad with a Blueberry Cheesecake Shake made for a good meal, part healthy. Service was average.

Pros: None Cons: The waitress took our order and left. Then we proceeded to wait, wait, wait. After a half an hour of waiting for Pancakes and French Toast (anyone who has made these before should know it doesn't take a half an hour even from scratch) in an almost empty restaurant, we were approached by the hostess. She asked... More

Extremely slow. You would think they would figure it out. But we have eaten here for 6 years now and they are still slow to seat you. Slow to take your order. Slow to bring you the very average Denny's food. Slow to bring your check. And then you have to wait for someone to come to the register. Other... More

Overall I really liked this Denny's. Their food was good, they didn't skimp on portion sizes, and they had excellent customer service. The interesting thing about this Denny's was that it had a full bar and billiards/cocktail lounge. To see a sign for Happy Hour at Denny's was just weird. It didn't bother me any, and they were very kid-friendly.
