We visited for our dinner and breakfast when staying in a hotel nearby. This Denny's was very good, with good service and good quality food.

We were seated right away and a great cup of coffee served. Our food came in a good time and was hot and a good portion. It was pretty early and they seemed a but understaffed but the staff were friendly. Good amount of parking. I would eat here again.

The food was very good. We ate here a couple of times, once for breakfast and once time for dinner. Both times the waitress was friendly. The food was prepared quickly and served hot. The coffee was good. I would definitely dine here again.

After our visit to Pacific Beach in February, the kids were so excited to be coming back and Denny's was at the top of the list. What a shock we got. The food hasn't changed much (although the hash browns were exceptionally dry each time they were ordered) but the service was just appalling. The only saving grace were the... More

I caught on right away, so he took the plate back and I waited several more minutes for my pancakes. The... More

The food was okey and the price to. There was not so crowded, but still the service was not so good. The restrooms needed a clean!

This is basically just your typical Denny's. I usually order the Super Bird. You can't go wrong! Service was good

We arrived tired and hungry from our drive to San Diego, and just wanted burgers, fries, sandwiches, etc. for an evening meal. We got fast, courteous service, good food, and it didn't cost an arm and a leg.
