“Lack of Leadership gives Mediocre Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

While the food was accurate, service was slow and attention was not forthcoming. The server appeared to be in high school and was visited by several friends. Her attention went away. The soup came after the entrée and was only warm. The food was also only warm. Restaurant was clean. Some servers seemed to hustle, and I heard the manager compliment one server. The hotel next door (Comfort Inn) gives their guests a 20% discount coupon for Denny's. The ticket had a number to call, but the cashier kept it. I recommend going elsewhere for supper until they can get this restaurant back on track. I would call management but don't have the number.

“BAD tasting water”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Expectations were low as I typically avoid chains, but not much else was open when we went here. Food was typical Denny's - filling and nothing special. The problem was that we both drink water with our meals and it was just terrible. I could not force myself to drink it so was thirsty the entire meal. We did not have this problem at any other location in T or C for the week we were there.

“Aweful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

THE WORST food/ service I've ever had to suffer. When they first opened, and the main management was there it was good. But since then it's gone down hill. The night shift is THE Worst. Knowing they are THE only place open past 11pm, they get by serving bad food on dirty plates, still reeking of that last cigarette they smoked just before they bring you your food that's been sitting under the light for 10 minutes

“Worst service ever!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We walked in to this Dennys after a whole evening of soaking in the local hot springs. We were quite tired, but hungry and Dennys was one of the only restaurants that was open besides McDonalds. We first had to wait awhile to be seated. Then halfway thru our meal, our waitress let us know that she was leaving and we would be taken care of by a new waitress. My boyfriend had already ordered dessert which never came, possibly due to lack of communication between the two waitresses. We gave up on the dessert because the waitress never came to check on us and we were exhausted and hoped that she would at last come by to give us the check. Still never came. Once we looked around and noticed that she was too busy talking to her friends who were at another table across the restaurant, we simply got up and walked over to the register where our previous waitress was standing. She asked if everything was ok. We let her know that we never got our dessert or our check. She said she needed to go get someone because she wasn't clocked in. Then finally, our new waitress came to charge us out asking if we enjoyed our dinner as if she never even saw us sitting there waiting for her. This was a horrible experience!

“a typical Dennys.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Just like almost all Dennys, good food and plenty of it. When you want a decent meal in a strange area, Dennys is hard to beat. This one has good, friendly servers also.
