We arrived just as a table of 13 entered their order. A cook and two other staff had called in absent, according to the manager, and it took over a half hour to deliver our food, which turned out to be barely warm enough to eat. Clearly, it had sat on the "up" counter for a while before the single... More

Saturday morning is a very busy time.I had the veggie omelet off the senior menu and it was just what you would expect--Tasted fine and had a variety of fruits on the side. Also came with an English muffin. My friend had the value slam (the best deal for about $4) and another friend ordered a chorizo skillet. Pancakes in... More

We went for breakfast and the service was not up to Denny's standards. We had to flag down one of 2 waitresses when we wanted our drinks refilled. The hash browns tasted like they soaked in grease for a day or two. Yuk.

The only reason I am giving this Denny's two stars is because our waitress was wonderful! Five stars for her! We had to send our daughter's plate back because it was stone cold, my order was wrong, my oldest daughter's order was wrong, they were out of cheese for the nachos and I had to order the veggie patty because...

Fine food and service. Pleasant if crowded- lots of customers. Have had the mixed plate dinners and burgers along with chicken dishes. All good.

It's like any other Denny's, wait was a little over 20 min to get a table (which is usually even at the Denny's where I am from, so no biggie). Friendly staff, breakfast was good. Clean and friendly staff and good breakfast.

15 minutes wait for a waiter, 25 minutes to be served, half perder, no spoons, no napkins, burned hamburguer. Just like newbies in a classic chain. Never again.

Stopping here was a colossal waste of time. I can't comment on the food because we never got seated. The two groups before us walked out also because they didn't get seated. I guess there was a reason that they were the only place in town, other than KFC and Taco Bell, that wasn't busy. Everyplace was packed today.

Only restaurant open for Christmas and was great getting us in and clean. We had a large family and they were able to accommodate us
