“You know what? It's a Denny's.”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

My four stars is based on the awesome service at this Denny's. Ultimately, it's a Denny's. You're eating at the Denny's. You know the score. The food was fine but the servers were all fast, really friendly, attentive and helpful. Kudos, gang!

“Great food and service”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We had breakfast twice at the Sandman Denny's we were staying at, and service was great and the food we had on the seniors pages was very plentiful and very reasonably priced.

“Interruptions !!!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

I frequent this Denny's location, and enjoy everything about my visits, from food quality, and atmosphere, to cleanliness. The one exception is the incessant interruptions from Denny's staff. The mostly East Indian origin staff including the Manager have this annoying tendency to abruptly interrupt their sitting table customers ongoing private conversation exchanges midstream. My various breakfast partners have all observed this since it regularly occurs about every 3 minutes for the entire time one sits down, every time we visit this Denny's.
Repeatedly asking if everything is alright, or whether we would like our coffee's topped up, private and often intense conversations are annoyingly interrupted.
The staff should be better trained to scan for a 'wanting' eye, empty coffee mugs pushed to the side, or making their physical presence known, rather than engaging the customers constantly, and most often unnecessarily when nothing is wanted or required.
It's extremely annoying and assuredly I am not alone here !
I should not need to school the waiters on protocol.
While attempting to do their jobs well, they are going beyond the bounds required by walking in to and interrupting private conversations. The all important and paying customer enjoys little or no regard for the nuance or manner.
I hope the Denny's Management reads this, and talk to their employees collectively about adjusting behavior accordingly, to maintain the well regarded Denny's eating experience.
