“meh...”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

we had the lumberjack slam. i assumed this would be a big hearty breakfast fit for lumberjacks prior to a day of felling mejestic trees in the frozen north. actually it was 2 snags, 2 cremated bacon strips and a slice of ham/bacon, some grated potato which had apparently been cooked byt was so aneamic looking it looked closer to cheese than hash browns and a couple of the obligatory fluffy buttermilk pancakes.
the issues i had were not with the friendly and attentive staff, or the lacklustre food but the total frownyness at children. we have a 2 yo with us and he was looked at like he has three heads just beause he talks a bit loud, we felt so unwelcome ( since there were no colouring pencils etc that you would expect in a family diner) that we had to take it in turns to take him out to walk around the ample (sarcasm... did you spot that?) 12 car car park.
they need to cater to childrens needs for more than the highly priced and frankly lacklustre kids meals and offer either free drinks or colouring or toys to play with included int he meal price. we took his toy with us but he was much more interested in the blind chord (which had been secured but was now broken and a choking hazzard) and the salt cellar which couldnt be put far enough out of his reach on the small table.

“Horrible! Never again!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Went for breakfast with family and were seated promptly. Restaurant wasn't horribly busy but didn't even see a server for most 20 minutes. Came and finally got our drink and food order. Waited another 25 minutes and not even a glass of water or cup of coffee! 45 minutes, and kids were so hungry. Walked out and went to Camelot a couple doors down. Amazing fast service and food was excellent! Do yourself a favour. Skip this place.

“Breakfast”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

I thought this chain made good breakfasts but today we missed out. The fruit was okay the toast was soaked in margarine & my eggs were over cooked. Even the coffee sucked

“no choice”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I have come to the conclusion that I will only come back to a Denny's restaurant only if there's no other choice. I ordered a NY steak and eggs and after a couple of hours got a strong indigestion. I am not sure it was the eggs or the steak not too fresh that caused it.

“Always great”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Always consistent food, nice servers, clean. Kids love it. Very reasonable prices. Once our son left his stuffed animal on the seat...they took it to the office and held it until someone could pick it up for us.
