Stopped here afternoon of April 9. Although the Denny's is connected to a major gas station right off Interstate 57, the atmosphere inside the restaurant was warm and removed from the bustle of the action outside. Subdued decor relaxes the eyes after a long hard slog on the highway. Typical Denny's menu means there are no surprises, which is often... More

We always stop at Denny's for lunch or breakfast while traveling by car . This particular Denny's needed a supervisor to kick operations into high gear . How long can it take to make 2 sandwiches and soup from the Senior Menu ? Answer 25 to 30 minutes is what we experienced. Restaurant was not full , 4 waitresses, and... More

I don't usually bother writing reviews for chain restaurants but the service at this location is God awful. We've tried coming hear there different times and it's terrible. Probably more of a location issue trying to find good employees. If you plan on visiting your going to wait at least an hour for your food. Staff is OK. Kitchen is... More

I guess I'll never understand how anybody working in food service can screw up a breakfast order so that badly, you end up throwing it out. It's EGGS, for crying out loud! I ordered take out, which is probably my fault, because I didn't check the food before I left. Because it's EGGS, for the love of Michael, EGGS!! My... More

Visited for breakfast with my best girl. Got exactly what we expected. Highlights: Coffee was good. Pancakes were better than average. Waitress was super friendly and helpful, probably saved me a few bucks by bundling our orders into one big "slam". Lowlights: Scrambled eggs were overdone, as usual.

Dennys is expensive especially when attached to a truck stop. Wait staff was ok. But the truck stop was nasty.

Stopped for breakfast it was pretty good. Really good fruit bowl that they substituted instead of hash browns. The bacon my wife ordered was cooked perfect. Allow some extra time because they are not fast.
