I didn't think it was possible to screw up bacon and eggs. I was wrong. After 20 minutes of waiting, our food arrived cold. I had it warmed up, okay, after a minute in the microwave it's at least lukewarm now. Then I taste it. How do you remove the flavor from bacon? They managed it somehow. The eggs and... More

We love Denny's normally because it is consistently good food at a very affordable price. But an affordable price should not mean I sacrifice good service. We ordered a side of pancake puppies with our Grand Slams to see how they were because we had heard good things. Unfortunately this was not the case for us, which is usually not... More

Food here is excellent, great big portions too. The waitresses were very friendly. We had the french toast, pancakes, hash browns, an omelet and bacon. Everything was delicious! We liked it enough to eat here both mornings of our stay in town. They do not accept any credit cards so bring cash.

We found the Denny’s Restaurant easily from Interstate 90, while travelling from the East Coast. The exterior looked like a shiny aluminum and glass block diner from the 50s and 60s. Life size figures of cultural icons, like Marilyn Monroe and James Dean graced the sidewalk. The interior was well lighted with the aluminum and glass block theme combined with... More

We love to try "mom and pop" places and were excited to see this as we made our way to the Dells, we decided that we would stop and have breakfast on Monday, prior to heading home. No waiting, we were seated immediately. I believe this particular location has a lot of family working here, as they were more interested... More

Almost every time we visit WI Dells we make a point of having supper at Denny's Classic Diner. If you have an AARP card and are there after 4:00 p.m., you receive 20% off your meal. We feel that allows us to leave a 20% tip for the waitress without overspending. The food is always good (love the Nasty Nachos),... More

Had to wait about 15 mins for a table even though we could see many empty tables. The service and food was good although I thought it would be a nice touch if the service staff was dressed in old time diner uniforms.
