We ate here on our way out of Denver. It is walking distance from our hotel room at the Hampton Inn . I had the chicken fried steak with eggs. My husband had the chicken fried steak off the dinner menus. It was. Excellent. The service was quick and friendly. We were very tired so appreciated both. We will return.

Off the beaten path unless you're by the DEN airport, but if you are and have a little time, this place is a MUST! The corned beef hash was unusually terrific, they had great wraps and burgers, there's a bar right next store, and the desserts and shakes are a MUST and are freshly made. IF you're a little rushed... More

This diner was close to my hotel on a cold rainy night. The wait staff is incredible. Friendly and efficient. Wide selection of burgers and American food dinners. Breakfast is served all day and there is a bar. I ordered breakfast and it was horrible. Hard as a rock hash browns, burnt toast. I had ordered french toast to go.... More

Ordered take out here during my Denver trip, The burger was very good, made well and done quickly and the fries were also good. We were not given any syrup for the banana bread French toast which was disappointing but still good.

Came in because it looked interesting. Nostalgic diner with some good mexican choices. I had the chile pancakes that were good. Other diners I was with liked the omletes. ONly minor complaint was the toast was really done. Good service. Good food. Not spectacular but we would return.

This diner was next to the hotel where I was staying near DIA. I was surprised by how good the food was. Service was prompt and very friendly. Good range of choices from sandwiches to full entrees. Decent wine too. Huge portions and very reasonable prices. Booths, tables and large counter space.

Forced to eat here as it's the only place remotely walkable from hotel. Lucked out because food was excellent, waiter was great, atmosphere was good. Went at just the right time and got the nachos 1/2 off since they were on the appetizer menu. Would go back next time I'm in town.

The Moonlight Diner is a fun place to catch breakfast or lunch or even dinner. Old time diner atmosphere. Breakfast served anytime. Good food for a good price. Not easy to find, keep looking, it is a little farther out than you think. Great service.

Stopped for lunch after arriving at DIA...very convenient. Server was pleasant and prompt. Ordered the Moonlight Club with fries and iced tea. Definitely huge. Lightly toasted sour dough was perfect. Bacon crisp. Fries a little greasy but were warm and crisp. Fair prices. Only minor negative was that I was not offered a refill on the tea. But I didn't... More

We arrived in Denver in the evening and decided to stay the night by the airport. We stopped in at the Moonlight Diner for breakfast on a Saturday morning and the place was packed. We got seated after a 15 minute or so wait - the staff was very efficient about getting people seated after other parties left. I got... More
