It was busy when we arrived. Yulibeth took down the number of people in our party (2), but wrote down the name of the people coming in behind us. After 20 minutes, we noticed people who came in after us were being seated and got added back to the list. Once we were *finally* seated, we never had a server... More

Was greeted when we walked in and seated. The drink order was taken when seated. When she returned to take the order, we ordered. It took over 30 minutes for the first group of good to arrive and then another 10 minutes for the next group to arrive and then 10 more minutes for the last item to arrive. Oh... More

I ordered a steak skewer that came with a side of wild rice. The steak was tough, barely warm and the rice had to have been sitting around at least all day; dry and just crap. Neither should have been served.

Worst Denny's I have ever visited, as well as worst service by our waitress. All seemed fine until our food came. I had two pieces of bacon and 2 pieces of sausage thrown on a plate, 2 of the 3 eggs I ordered as well as a plate of two pancakes that I did not order. After asking the waitress... More

We had one of our best times with the Great help from our waitress Pene T and table 44. She made it fun to have a meal and never let us go without proper refills on drinks. Never had to ask she brought it with a smile. She even recognized the hotel key we had and stated that we also... More

Normally Denny's are a good diner but this one was well below acceptable standards with stale food, badly cooked and poor service. 12hrs after dining there had to see a pharmacist to resolve a gastric problem.

I was desperate for breakfast early one morning. Settled for going to this Denny's, all that was open so early. Suprisingly nice experience with good coffee, gluten free options, and a cheerful waitress at 6 am.

Food was awesome - the hash browns were actually brown & crispy, eggs were perfectly cooked. Their new buttermilk pancakes are just as advertised - fluffy & great tasting.

They don't serve pie at this Denny's...that's why anyone even goes to a Denny's...weird. The service was okay but a cop came into the restaurant looking for someone and the servers were rapping loudly in the kitchen.
