Service is very slow, food is fair but do not eat the peanut butter pie, it is horrible. The place needs to be cleaned.

I know the Denny's is not the first (or second) place you think of for burgers, but if you truly want it your way, this is the place. Starting with a hand made beef patty or a grilled chicken breast, you chose from three types of bun, three types of cheese, and nine or ten different toppings. You could eat... More

We have not visited a Denny's in many years. We had breakfast and were surprised at the variety and quality of food. The pancakes were very good and the egg dishes tasty. Great bargain menu also.

We were seated quickly and the place was jumping. Maria our waitress was full of smiles and very good at her job.she stopped to say food would be out shortly and regularly asked if anything she could get us.

The place is rundown (has been for years), the service isn't great, some of the food is good, some not so much. Every now and then we try it since it's nearby and to see if it's improved...it never is!

Slow service and terrible coffee. Old dry pancakes, cold eggs that are tasteless, need to get rid of the tasteless oil they fry things in and season while being cooked.

We ate breakfast at this restaurant 3 times during our stay. We hadn't eaten at a Denny's in years, but decided to give it a try and are so glad we did! FAST, friendly service and everything we ate was wonderful! Highly recommend it!
