I had kept away from Denny's as we don't have them in Australia, and therefore, I had no idea what it was. I expected it was a greasy burger joint. Somehow, my husband talked me into eating dinner there and I was surprised at the healthy choices and the extensive choices that they serve. The only place in Australia I... More

This by far has to be one of the worst meals that we have had at a Denny's. We travel every week on business and look for Denny's for breakfast as they are usually consistent. This Denny's was terrible. The food was cold. My husband had grits that were so soupy that there was nothing he could do to make... More

I have a high tolerance for mediocre food, especially if I am hungry. The meal I had was very mediocre, but the price was right and directly across the street from my motel, so I didn't have to drive. The service was ok. Good port in a storm, but look elsewhere for better variety and better quality

Have eaten here many times for breakfast and it is consistently Denny's. However, this time it took forever to get the orders placed and even longer for the food. This is not expected in a place famous for a quick and easy breakfast. I hope they were just having a bad day.

Greeted quickly and kindly and food tasted great for it being a Dennys, and got a discount when having booked at the Motel 6

We just got off a 7 day backpacking trip, so salad was what we were craving. Denny's salad was perfect. I got the chicken salad, my husband got the prime rib salad. Both were delicious.

Nothing special, but if you want sit-down service in the late-night, this is one of few options. It's arguably the best option especially for families since you probably want to avoid the local bars and the (smoky) Paiute Casino.

We stayed overnight in Bishop and thought we'd give Denny's a go. It had a varied menu and we all had different things. The spaghetti and meatballs had dried up spaghetti which was horrid. They got bits of the order wrong and the waitress wasn't unfriendly but was the complete opposite to every other place we ate in in the... More

For some reason, the food at this Denny's tastes better than the average Denny's. It might be because we're super hungry after hiking but, time and time again, we're pleased with the food and the service at this location. It's not gourmet, but it's darn good road-trip, hiking reward food!
