Not so bad

The place was open late at night, so we decided to have dinner there. The staff was polite but we had to wait for a long time to order the food. The food was simple, not bad, but could have been better. If you don't have other place to go, try this one.

I recently was in the Denny's on Buck Owens Blvd in Bakersfield and had an average Denny's breakfast. I just now looked at my receipt and noticed that they automatically added a 15% gratuity for themselves. I know that it is common if you have a large party to add a tip automatically, but we only had 3 people at... More

We choosed this restaurant, as it was near to our hotel, however it was a great frustration for us. The service is too slow, the knifes and forks were dirty, the meal was too fatty. Everything was disorganised. The table just opposite to us was used as managers table, full of paper and documents. The vacuun cleaner was next to... More

This Denny's is close to the interchange of Rt 99 and is in walking distance from most of the hotels. The food is the same as any other Denny's, but our server made it a bit better. If you are in the good food for a good price, this is the place.

Stopped over on our way to San Francisco, the place is clean tidy and prices are OK. The food selection is sufficient to cater for the family. Service was quick and efficient.

Returning from a trip, we pulled off of the freeway to catch a quick meal. We chose Denny's because of the good experiences we have had dining in at least 20 other Denny's locations over the years. Maybe not the best food, but good food, good service and a good price equals a value that is often very hard to... More

We have eaten previously at this location (across the street from our hotel). While the servers were friendly when you saw them, the people in front us (a party of 4) left due to no one acknowledging or seating them. Seemed they were understaffed at that timing. Took longer than usual to get seated. Despite the very poor service start... More

Had to travel unexpectedly on Christmas Day to Bakersfield for early birth of our grandson. Was glad to find a place to sit down to eat a good dinner. Employees were very friendly. Thank you to the employees for working on Christmas and great attitudes.
