Great location, good service

Great location, few minutes from the Rodeway inn hotel. Good service, the place was clean and the staff was really kind. The burgers were really good. (Warning: Do not order the pecan pancakes if you have trypophobia)

Anyone who has stopped at any Denny's while traveling usually stops here as they know what to expect. The service and food are as good here as any and even a little better. Clean environment and up to par. If you expected too much more this is not the place. I do recommend this to eat in the area. Prices... More

Its a chain, so food is same in everyplace they're located. On our particular trip to the restaurant, service was slow. It was somewhat clean but it had some odor, like from old rugs in the floor. Food flavor was ok, Cutlery was clean

Ate here twice in 2 days as the hotel "breakfast" was pitiful. Denny's was great, food was ready fast and to our specs. Recommended.

The Denny's off Carlsbad Village Drive is exactly what you would expect. Competent service, decent food, and a convenient location. In our case, it was a short 1 minute walk from the lobby of our hotel. Also just off the Interstate so it is always bustling.

I normally don't review chain restaurants but in the case of this restaurant I must compliment the management on their wait staff. We were seated near the counter which gave us a view of the kitchen area and wait staff prep area unlike most of the restaurant seating. Our waitress was polite, easily managed our exception to the menu, keep... More

My friend and I had lunch at the Carlsbad Denny's. The double cheeseburger picture on the menu caught my eye and I ordered it. He had the Philly cheese steak sandwich. Rarely does the actual delivered entrée match the menu picture, but this one did! It had two large beef patties, cheese, lettuce, pickles and tomato. It was all of... More

We stayed at the Motel 6 adjacent to Denny's. It was fine. Food was good and served quickly. Probably one of the more affordable restaurants in Carlsbad. Just don't ask for a beach side table - there aren't any.

We ate breakfast here because our Grandaughter loves Denny's for breakfast. The food was hot and appealing, however, I've had better breakfast at other places. But it took 10-15 minutes to get our meal, which wasn't too long considering the order.

This was a really nice, friendly Denny's. It is clean and service was excellent. The food was cooked to perfection! A pleasant surprise. It also felt more like a local diner than a restaurant chain. Very pleasant meal!
