“In the afternoon & evening you take your chances...”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Breakfasts should rate 4 or 5 star - food and waitresses are great.
Other times you take your chances - depends on who is cooking and whom you get to wait on you.
It has been 10 months since my last review of the La Grande Denny's. We have been eating there one or two times a week. They are hard to judge because of different times and personnel. I can say that their breakfasts are great and the wait staff excellent and attentive. The pancakes are the best in town! We recently ate there twice in the afternoon and evening and had two different experiences. On December 23rd at about 4:00 pm we had dinner there - excellent. Very good meal, waitress was friendly and attentive. On December 26th we ate there about 2:30-3:00 pm. It was the worst meal we have had there! We had a guy for a waiter, he brought burnt garlic bread (which I should have sent back), and my wife's vegetables were burnt. He told us he used to work at some high-class restaurant in town. I would have been ashamed to have served food like he brought us. He was not attentive - spent too much time talking to other customers, failed to bring us our bill and so on. It is a shame to have a bad experience like this…

“OK Food But Noisy Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here late one evening recently on our way to Boise...place was nice and clean...but they have a bar attached to the back. I wasn't even aware Denny's had bars! Restaurant was playing one kind of music loudly and the bar, which had doors opened to the main dining area, was playing another country station very loudly. There was an excess of staff who would wander around and then stand in clusters and talk over the music. I was tired and didn't enjoy the constant barrage of loud noise. Food was actually very tasty and plentiful, service was decent.

“What You Expect”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

It's a Denny's. They have the same menu everywhere and the same "quality". It's an OK stop with an extensive menu
