The service and food were good. The facility was not clean including the table we ate at. We had to request a cleaning cloth to clean our table. The bathrooms were horrible and even the waitress uniforms were questionable. I would not be returning. It was disappointing for a Denny's facility.

Server was very pleasant and friendly. Food was served cold. Had to flag server down each time we needed our glasses or cups refilled. Lots of excessive noise/chatter from the kitchen.

My ham did not taste like ham. Hubby said his was good. He tasted mine and spit it out. It took 3 tries before the waiter got the order somewhat right. The hash browns had a rancid taste. My eggs were not cooked to order. My grandson's salad was loaded with brown lettuce. The tea was good

Stopped in to have breakfast here because it looks so dog gone neat! Outside was awesome, inside just normal. Was hoping they would have carried the theme throughout the restaurant but that's ok. Food was good as always, service was good and prices, of course are very reasonable. Bathroom upgrades would make it a bit nicer. Still fun place to... More

The environment was quaint and the waitress that tended to us was great. They had a new cook they were training and the food took a little longer than usual for us to get but the food was good and hot. The waitress was very attentive and the banana/strawberry smoothie was OUTSTANDING!!

We went to the Denny's across the street from our room at the Days Inn. We went in and was greeted after a few minutes. It was busy so we understood about the wait for a table. Once seated, our order was taken and then the wait began. In the 35 minutes we sat, we saw our waitress constantly argue... More
