“Service poor. Whole place looks grubby”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

This has got to be one of the worst Denny's I have ever been to. It is very tired and desperately needs a re-fit. Even the cups are worn and look dirty.
Service very poor. Waited ten minutes to give order. When food eventually arrived, extra bacon forgotten. Wouldn't use again.

“Food good, service not”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Food was up to Denny's usual good standard, but on two separate days the waitresses could not get the orders for three people right. After returning to the table three times to ask for clarification on both days orders still came out wrong. Waitresses need to write down orders at the table rather than looking good by seeming to remember orders.

“Very good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

I liked the fact that you can have breakfast lunch or dinner. The prices were reasonable also. It was clean and waiters were fast efficient and friendly.

The waitress was very friendly and she kept coming back to our table to ask us if we needed anything.

“Don't Knock This place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

Yes, this Denny's has seen better days. Yes, it's a little run-down. Yes, there's long been a "for sale" sign on the property. But it was open on Thanksgiving Day, serving a splendid turkey dinner for less than a sawbuck. For any visitor, whose own hotel had basically shut down its kitchens for the day, it was a godsend. The food was of good diner quality — and that includes the excellnt slice of warmed pecan pie at the end. The service was friendly and efficient. As for the ambience — well, this Denny's will win no awards. But on my frequent visits to Florida, it's always been there when you need it, and I have seen no evidence of the total disaster area alleged by some critics on this and other sites. So be thankful for small mercies.
