I would go again.

I've been going here since I was a child. Decent food, good service not to mention staying power. No matter how many restaurants open here it never seems to affect Denny's.

I've been to this location hundreds of times over the yrs. Very comfortable atmosphere! Food quality is pretty good but the portion sizes are never consistent. I order the same thing every time I come here, Santa Fe Skillet, and the portions are never the same.

We were looking for a quick meal when all the mainstream places were closed. Ordered soup, and the cracker dish was filthy. Salt and pepper shakers were greasy, crusted with food residue. When I pointed it out to the waitress, she didn't seem surprised or bother to apologize. Place was just worn, torn, nasty dirty...

The meal was good. The service was good. The price was fair. The fixtures and décor was dated and could you a little face lift.

We were staying at a hotel in town for the night with our kids, and of course wanted to get them something they would have no problem eating: breakfast dinner! Food was good - we even had extras. The place was crowded - but it was 6:30 on a Sat. night. No big complaints, but it was nothing special.

I have frequented this Denny's on numerous occasions and from what I have compiled this Denny's location has decent food for the price, a friendly group of servers but management needs work. The female manager that works mornings you can just tell is putting on an act for her customers and just seems to bark orders at the girls like... More
