Nice place not far from Denver International Airport. We stopped here for breakfast and the food was good and fresh cooked. Recommended.

A NY/NJ style diner with a bar in Denver? Ok, the combination may sound weird but it works. And, if you are like me and long for a good 'comfort food' dinner while traveling this is the place. I had the meatloaf dinner and it was as delicious. The meatloaf was perfectly seasoned and cooked, and the mixed vegetables and... More

this was a nice unexpected surprise- a very well done replica of a classic diner with a separate full bar through the doors. service was very good and the food was as good as any pub food I've had.

We flew in early from the East Coast and needed breakfast. We were parked at the Hampton Inn, and walked to the diner. I had classic chicken fried steak with hash browns and scrambled eggs. They know how to cook this steak and the gravy! Yay, I was raised in the South, this is a classic Southern breakfast. Not that... More

This is one of several restaurants along Tower Road near the airport. It was within walking distance of my hotel. OK three quarters of a mile but I did walk it. It was what you might expect of a diner and reminded me of the Silver Diners in metro Washington, DC. But the menu is not as extensive as I... More

We had to stay the night at the Denver airport hotel and was looking for something simple to eat. We decided to avoid the chains and go to Moonlight Diner. The menu is somewhat limited and not nearly as extensive as a "Greek Diner". The food was pretty good and the service was also very good. I had the pork... More

We went to the Moonlight Diner for lunch after having just arrived at the Hampton Inn next door. We were promptly greeted/sat, and a pleasant young man introduced himself as our server. He must have noticed the hunger in our eyes (breakfast at the Philly airport at 7am and it was now 3 EST!) and offered to take our drink... More

Arrived in Denver on early morning flight, googled 'best breakfast near me,' and Moonlight Diner popped up. Less than 10 minutes from the airport, we jumped in our rental car & headed to breakfast! Cute Rock & Roll theme; seated right away by a pleasant enough 'host.' And as we were being seated, we saw our server sitting at an... More

Stopped in for breakfast on our way to Colorado Springs. Place was busy but the service was quick and the food good. Corned beef hash was a little salty for my taste but all other entrees were spot on. I recommend the spinach scramble or the pancakes.
