Food tasted good and sweet tea was awesome

This was a good place to eat - I'd go back. The server we had was very good. Food tasted good but not fabulous; average. The sweet tea was awesome!

She got upset cause my drink tasted like water and slammed my drink down and we said we were gonna to order sundaes. She didn't ask what kind... More

Food was... More

We saw another couple nearby with menus when we arrived and no one stopped a their table either...then a couple came in near us (after we waited 15 min) and the waiter took their... More

Yikes! Usually you can count on Denny's for some decent food. Not so with this one. Food was slow coming out when it wasn't particularly crowded. The "senior" chicken meal was tiny served with Kraft macaroni and cheese ... old celery sticks. More pride is needed in checking the plates before they're sent out from the kitchen.

They go through managers like a revolving door. The new people rearrange the staff around so we do not have the waitress we want and things are more lax. The building needs remodeled so bad and they are just doing the bare minimum to keep it from being condemned. We live just 3 minutes away but have been coming less... More

Went there for breakfast last week. I had the Ultimate Omlette which was very good. Full of meat cheese, and peppers. Server was friendly and polite.

Always chaotic in these restaurants - never a relaxing meal and the food all looks great on the menu but does not even remotely resemble the picture on the menu when you get your food.

They have been saying they were going to rennovate for the past few years. Yet there is sits just as dumpy as ever. Food is better lately since they changed cooks. Some staff are great, some are very unprofessional. They seem to have high turn over of management. People eat there because it is a Denny's not because it's a... More

This restaurant is about 3 minutes from our house but we eat there 4-5 times a month usually breakfast. The waitresses all know us and our quirks and we have a good time. Good food also helps and it's made they way we like it.
