I got lucky!

Amazingly, I had a pretty good meal and good service. However, the place looked a little run-down and during the lunch hour, there were a lot of staff just sitting around. Some of them seemed to be at lunch as well. Oddly enough, with all the staff sitting around, I noticed a lot of things they... read more

I really want to like and support this Denny's but I honestly cant. The poor service and attitude of the management is what is killing the place. Never been there where we didn't wait for a server and then wait ages for our food. Never seems to be enough staff. Food is nice, when it gets to you.

Pretty much your typical Denny's. No problem with our food or waitress. Fairly clean. We went for breakfast. I would go again without any complaints.

Say what you will about Denny's, it's there when you need it. We needed it late one night, when we were staying in our motor home at a nearby KOA. We were both sick, and hungry. The place was packed (because the nearby Six Flags had just closed for the night, I think) but they managed to seat everyone and... More

We had lunch here with some in town relatives and everyone had a tasty lunch and a good visit. We enjoyed the fact that the menu offered such a nice variety for the adult taste. The atmosphere was such that we could enjoy a good meal and conversation too. We all had something different and we all enjoyed the food... More

This restaurant is indicative of the others Denny's facilities. The food is good and adequately proportioned. The service was good and we had no complaints. I ate there Thursday night last week and my wife and son ate there Thursday and Saturday nights.

Good place to take kids for chocolate chip pancakes. My husband got an omelette which was fair and I got a grand slam. We ask for crispy bacon but it was soggy. Our waitress brought put the wrong food and was apologetic as she blamed the cooks. After food was served - we never saw her again.

I took my grandson here before visiting Grant's Farm because I did not want him to be hungry and crabby. Denny's has a great breakfast and I knew it would fill us up for awhile. We passed Six Flags and my grandson asked me when they opened. I looked at the clock and it was 10:23am. We arrived at Denny's... More

Great food but staff was so inefficient and slow. 30 min for drinks and place was only at half capacity. Day manager walked around aimlessly while people were walking out due to wait. Needs better management
