Could be Better

We stopped here on our way to Reno for lunch. Seemed total confusion, about 8-10 people waiting for a table, nobody being seated, no names being taken, although there were empty tables, so we left after 7-10 minutes. On our way back 5 days later, we tried again. The computer for the register... read more

Your first impression will be the smell of old grease as you enter this sad old Denny's. I had a sausage and cheese quesadilla that was swimming in grease. The conversation was great and I ate only one slice. I was sick to my stomach and Up all night and morning. Having worked as a restaurant cook for two years... More

Didn't even get acknowledged. Server came by said she would be right w us why we watched her sit, hug and talk to a table few ft away for over 15 min. We ended up walking out as we didn't even get drinks in this time. The estwblishment was not even busy. They do not care about customers here!

I would have to agree with other reviewers, this place is really a dump! We had left San Francisco early in the morning and by the time we got to Newcastle we were getting hungry. We saw the sign for Denny's and although we hadn't been to one in years, we decided we'd give it a try, that was our... More

Retired fire fighter age 64 , travel a lot, love Denny's. This is a 100% Dump, ask who was owner? Lol - thought they only bought 7/11's. First time i have ever googled Corporate then called them from my booth. Corporate should shut them down. Really it was this bad. Mens bathroom was beyond words. We really should have just... More

Denny's is Denny's is Denny's but OMG! Needs complete renovation. Meals are typical Denny's but had family from England here and was totally embarrised as we bottomed out in the booth, gazed about the grimey and falling apart tile work, worn out everything from counter to decor to flooring et al. Made my guests cringe to think what the kitchen... More

This place is falling apart. Sit in a booth & your rear end hits the floor!!!! Go to the men's room....sign says "Lock the door, under repair". Denny's are never great, but usually OK. This place needs new everything!!!!!!

This is Denny's. The food is normal Denny's. Nothing special, but generally a clean place to get a quick meal.

My son and I stopped at this Denny's on our way to Lake Tahoe. We were seated, received our menus and waited, waited, waited to be served. Never happened. Granted the restaurant was busy, but seemed adequately staffed. Anyway, we left and went to the Denny's in Auburn (Auburn Ravine Road exit). It is newer, nicer and we were promptly... More
