“Not so bad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

We liked sitting upstairs, outdoors with a limited view of the beach, separated from the road by the parking lot.

Sure, it's not the cleanest place, and I wouldn't use the washroom, but it's Denny's.

The service is slow because obviously the owner is too cheap to have enough staff. We always went midday, and loved all the waitresses we had there. Much friendlier and more genuine than you usually get in Canada, that's for sure.

And if you just want a small meal like $2 pancakes, it's a good deal. We also liked the $4 chicken quesadilla sandwich.

“terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Avoid at all cost. Slowest service and food ever. Does not live up to the Denny's reputation. Was very disappointed>. Got our cutlery thrown in the middle of the table still wet. And the waitress was the most condescending person I have ever met when we brought to her attention the lack of service.

“It's a Denny's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

This was walking distance, so we went twice. Pretty standard Denny's food. It wasn't busy either time we went and the food still took ages to come. At least you have those bottomless drinks while you wait. I don't think it was "filthy" as some reviewers have said. It just was old and tired. Lots of people will say a place is dirty if it is not shiny brand-new. The thing I liked about it was that it is all open-air. I wouldn't go in the late afternoon as the sun would be pounding in on the balcony.

“Count on Denny's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

You can always count on Denny's for a good breakfast. Service was very slow, due to a newbie waitress was very inexperienced. If you ask for Carol's section wonderful person we have had her many times in the past and always on the go. Carol will give great service with a fantastic smile no matter how busy. We've learned that for next time we go ask for Carols section. Come on it's Denny's can't go wrong with the food.
