Seated pretty promptly, served drinks by hostess. Then nothing. We attempted to flag down a waitress to even get our orders taken, but they were all standing around talking to each other back behind the counter. Finally flagged the bus person over. Our waitress came approx 2 minutes later stating "I didn't even know you were my table." We saw... More

Exceptional friendly service, Quick food delivery, but just basic comfort food. Nothing wrong with good comfort food for a hearty breakfast. Sufficient wait staff.

Usual bill a-fair for breakfast. Server was better than a lot of Denny's. Menu the same as so many (this style Denny's restaurant).

Denny's is Denny's is Denny's . . . but our meal here was exceptionally good. The server (Maria J) did a great job. We were extremely pleased with our breakfast here.

I used to visit Denny's on Wells Ave. in Beautiful Reno, Nevada, quite some time ago. This morning, I had to drop my wife off at a Doctor's appointment not far from Denny's so I thought I'd stop in again. Well, just as I expected, I was greeted with a warm, friendly smile and seated immediately. My server, Danielle, came... More

We haven't been to a Denny's in some time. The advertised items looked good and were. But their prices have really gone up. Too much for us to bear for a Denny's. This location did give very good service and was close and handy for us. Exactly what we expected except for the higher prices.

Granted, this Denny's shares a parking lot with a paint-peeling America's Worst Inn and is across the street from a long-abandoned gas station and a shuttered and weed-filled Carrow's, but it is literally right off the freeway.You can pop off on and off the Wells exit with ease. Food is typical Denny's, though I will say they have stepped up... More

We were very impressed with the Denny's we ate at in California's Simi Valley a year or two ago and so opted to search out another Denny's while in Reno. That was a mistake. We had to stand in line for over ten minutes even though we could see several empty tables. The red headed woman taking our name and... More
