“Meh...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

average food, average everything. you want denny's? this is a denny's. the problem we did have was silly but made the meal less enjoyable. we had something that came with dipping sauce. the amount of sauce was so miniscule that it serviced only 2 items. when we requested more, there was a charge for it. not nice, denny's. server was nice but forgot we were there.

“Good Denny's !!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

I never thought I would review a Denny's restaurant but the truth is, this particular Denny's store is quite good, and it's good because the restaurant itself is in a good location, has an upscale interior, and most importantly, the SERVICE is OUTSTANDING. They really have a great wait staff that works hard. If you haven't been to a Denny's in a while, this would be a good choice to re-think this chain in general. The food is actually quite good - the menu has a wide variety and there are really some very tasty and actually healthy choices. They have WiFi, too.

By the way, there are two Denny's in Monterey, both on Fremont Street. This is the one that is in downtown Monterey, at the intersection of Abrego/Munras & Fremont.

“Great breakfast at Denny's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

We were quickly shown to our breakfast table. The waitress Jeana was very helpful, smiles a lot and attentive.

We were surprised by the menu offering that includes a healthy selection for age 55+ customers. The description describes the calories and fiber content. Really good.

Our children have the choices too and they are not nearly 30 years old yet.

We enjoined our breakfast and will come again to Denny's.

“Nicer Denny's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

The staff here were excellent. Friendly and great service . You couldn't ask for more. They had power so, we went there to eat while we waited for the power to come back on at our hotel. We brought food back to our room to eat later because there was so much. Plus brought back one of their good desserts (cake ) to eat later. Best Denny's I have ever eaten at.
