Nothing is fresh and everything is fried. After my visit I spent the whole night and part of the following day near the toilet. Of course I will never go back nor to any other Denny's.

The service was terrible and slow. The food was okay. The place looked and felt dirty. The seat in our booth had a divot, when I initially sat down the seat was uneven, plus I could feel the kid kicking the seat behind me. I know there are better Denny's out there, this was not one of them. Plus it... More

Our server was one of the best we've ever had. So good, in fact, we left a 50% tip, which is unheard of in our frugal household. I wish I could remember his name. The food was great, I love it when I order a salad and the lettuce is actually cold, not room temperature! I'm typically not a Denny's... More

We stayed in Holiday Inn Express conveniently located next to the Denny's. During our long Road Trip with our grandchildren we ate at several Denny's along the way. We were excited to see one right next door to the hotel. What a disappointment! We were seated right away which was good BUT then no server. The hostess forgot our water,... More

Just another Denny's, nothing great, nothing bad. The food was decent and the service was ok. This particular Denny's had something that was a first...it is set up and designed like a classic dinner from the 50s. Kind of cool and gave it a nostalgic feel. Not much else to say about it other than it is good enough food... More

The food is as I expected from a typical diner. The hamburger and fries were good, on the salad they could have used a little more meat. The interior, new in retro style, was basically OK but the carpet already run- down and not as clean as it should be.

Let me start with the positive, the staff couldn't be nicer. With that being said the rest isn't very positive. We had a BLT and a club sandwich. The bacon was so thin you couldn't even taste it on the sandwich. My husband had hash browns with cheese, usually it comes melted on the potatoes. Cold shredded cheese this time.... More

This Denny's is styled after a railroad car and has a feel of yesteryear but the interior is new. Fun Denny's to eat at!
