Food and service were terrible!! The restaurant got too many health related things wrong in their inspections, couldn't keep business and employees...they closed their doors.

Denny's is just a nice place for a family who have different food wishes. Nothing culinary, but just good food for a hungry stomach for a fair price. Kids shared their children meals, and enjoyed their pizza and pasta!

The restaurant is very tired looking and badly needs a remodel. The service is okay, not great. The food is typical Denny's. Not bad, but not great. All the filling for my omelette was outside the omelette instead of cooking into it. Toast came 10 minutes after the omelettes. Hard to get the waitress back to refill drinks. They have... More

First of all, my husband and I went to Denny's two weekends ago for breakfast as we have many times in the past. It was Mothers Day. The restaurant wasn't busy at all. We were seated and waited on right away. I ordered scrambled eggs with cheese, hash browns, an English muffin, and four strips of bacon. I asked that... More

I came here with a friend and no one waited on us. We had to get up and ask for a server. The server traded us off 3 times to different guys. They forgot about the rest of my order. Then we sat there waiting for the bill that we asked for twice. As we were cashing out the phone... More

This is not the first time we've been here, but not much has changed. 5 minutes + to seat us, and there were tables open. Our order took well over 30 minutes to arrive and some of the food was cool. The only positive thing was our server - Craig. He was wonderful. Very nice, friendly, and helpful.

I've been to this Denny's three times in the past few months, and each time, it is marginal. Just about every time we go, they run out of something - whether it's cheese, pico (tomato mixture), sausages, etc. I'm surprised they didn't run out of eggs, probably the most important item served. The service is usually decent. Friendly staff, but... More

Went for breakfast on Sunday Morning. First... Hostess was complaining to manager that she couldn't do what he wanted. Second... Seated in back dining room where the heat was way too high. Third...

Went to Denny's Labor Day morning around 11-12. I did expect to busy. My problem was the food and staff with exception of David. Great guy, tried his best. The food was horrible. Cook and soggy. It was like they suddenly remembered they had food waiting for people. David thank you for trying your best to satisfy ALL your tables.
