The only reason I am giving this Denny's two stars is because our waitress was wonderful! Five stars for her! We had to send our daughter's plate back because it was stone cold, my order was wrong, my oldest daughter's order was wrong, they were out of cheese for the nachos and I had to order the veggie patty because...

Fine food and service. Pleasant if crowded- lots of customers. Have had the mixed plate dinners and burgers along with chicken dishes. All good.

It's like any other Denny's, wait was a little over 20 min to get a table (which is usually even at the Denny's where I am from, so no biggie). Friendly staff, breakfast was good. Clean and friendly staff and good breakfast.

15 minutes wait for a waiter, 25 minutes to be served, half perder, no spoons, no napkins, burned hamburguer. Just like newbies in a classic chain. Never again.

Stopping here was a colossal waste of time. I can't comment on the food because we never got seated. The two groups before us walked out also because they didn't get seated. I guess there was a reason that they were the only place in town, other than KFC and Taco Bell, that wasn't busy. Everyplace was packed today.

Only restaurant open for Christmas and was great getting us in and clean. We had a large family and they were able to accommodate us

I'm so sorry to rate Denny's. I use to love Denny's when I visited them in other towns but this one is awful. The food was so bad I could not finish it. I became nauseated. And to top it all off, I noticed the prices have been doubled from what they normally charge. I really wouldn't mind paying more... More

This is a terrific Denny's. I love the look of the building. Makes it more inviting. The food was excellent as well as the waiter.

Horrible, horrible, horrible experience...did I say HORRIBLE??? The server Mikey was extremely rude and disrespectful not only to us but every person in restaurant! From cussing to where everyone can hear him, yelling at other staff members acrose the restaurant, to telling us that he couldn't even give us a drink we ordered(coffee and Dr pepper) because he didn't have...
