We decided to stop in for a quick sandwich after our golf game next door. We found they had only one server who was overwhelmed and caused us to wait for our drink order and then wait over 10 more minutes to place our food order. When the food finally arrived, my order was incomplete and another was badly undercooked... More

Staff was over whelmed by a large bus that had stopped in, not typical for a Tuesday morning I am sure. Our server was nice and courteous and the buttermilk pancakes are kid approved times 4( the kids said it was the best part of breakfast)

Service was fine but everything else leabes much to be desired. The restrooms were DISGUSTING. There were eggs on the floor, they had obviously not been cleaned in a while. The servers finger nails were GROSS.

My family and I stopped @ denny's after getting off the highway from Louisville. I ordered the Philly cheese omelette w/hashbrown & toast. The omelette tasted like it was sausage instead of steak, old and dry. Their was more egg than anything. The hashbrowns were burnt & greasing. The toast had a funny taste like it was old. Dang how...

I think this is the worst Denny's in America! Got seated and waited almost 30 minutes before we saw a waitress to give us drinks. Then an additional 40 minutes before we got our food. Will not recommend stopping here ever again!!!!

Very old, not remodeled, warn out looking. Generous portion of food for the lunch senior +55 menu. Food was acceptable, but nothing great. Mashed potatoes were very dry. Overall, wished we had gone to Cracker Barrel.
