We decided to give the diner a try instead of the hotel for breakfast. We walked in about 9am and it was not busy but it took 5 minutes to be seated. The waitress's name was Elli and she was nasty and negative throughout the entire time we were there. She provided us menus and asked if we wanted something... More

We were very tired after a long day and leery of eating someplace new, but the place was inviting and clean. Patrice was our server and she was so friendly and helpful! She made our visit especially nice anticipating our every need and making sure we were happy. We ordered a cheeseburger with homemade fries and onion rings. And they... More

The Moonlight Diner is a great place to grab a meal near the airport, especially if one is staying at an airport hotel. We had an overnight stay near Denver Airport and were looking for somewhere to eat near our hotel. It's a vast wasteland out there, and we were concerned we'd have to eat at the local Ruby Tuesdays.... More

Was in the mood for a great hamburger. This hit the spot. Best fries I've had in a long time. BLTs were quite good as well.

My cousins were arriving at DIA, with a four hour layover during the busy Christmas season, so we wanted a place close to DIA to meet for lunch. Not much there, but the Moonlight Diner seemed promising based on the location and menu (wide selection plus beer and wine). Far more than promising: a real delight. Nice surroundings, very pleasant... More

We both had the Fried Chicken dinner. It was very good, I was surprised to see white gravy, however, it tasted good. Apple pie for dessert with caramel was great. Excellent service, and nice atmosphere. I would return. It's close to all the Denver Airport hotels.

Moonlight Diner and Bar is one of those places that when you're having the munchies and can't find a place to dine, this is the oasis in the Denver desert. They have a full menu, lounge and bar and offer full ice cream creations. It didn't seem like it was a chain but the appearance gives it the traditional look... More

Quaint, 50's style shiny diner. I had the classic combo with pancakes. Nothing was overly greasy, which I really appreciate.
