When you are given a 15-20 min estimated wait when the restaurant is as good as empty, it shows something is really wrong. We turned and left.

Both my wife and I got sick eating here!

We just wanted a quick breakfast, which is what Denny's is famous for.
We proceeded to spend a long time sat on porcelain regretting our choice for breakfast that day.

I'd avoid it if I were you.

Quite nice inside for a chain restaurant. Service is good, but don't complicate things or some of the staff may struggle.

Food was lovely, and quick to arrive.

We came deliberately wanting to try some US fast food, and really enjoyed the burgers and sandwiches here.

Cheap eats, tasty food, good service

We only tried this place once and we'll never go back. There were many tables opened when we arrived and few people ahead of us and yet we all waited more than 20 minutes to be seated (why?) Once seated, we got practically no service at all..no water, no menus right away, took forever for a waiter to come finally take our order. When we finally got what we ordered, they had forgotten one person in our party and had to just begin cooking their order as the rest of us started eating ours before it got cold, which didn't take long. The food was mediocre at best and the service was truly terrible. It's outdated, dark and just plain yucky in this Denny's. I can't recommend it to anyone.

We like to go to Denny's as we can rely on the food being good, this was no exception, the staff were speaking quite a lot in spanish to each other which can be off putting if you cannot understand what is being said, but the waitress was very polite and friendly towards us when she took our order. The food was lovely and as always the milkshakes were delicious. The restaurant was not very busy at the time we went in which was nice as it was not over crowded. We are always happy with Denny's though.
