There service is very slow and the quality of food is terrible. The toast barely had butter on it, I never received a fill up on my tea pot and the food actually left me feeling uneasy for a few hours after eating there.

Visited with my son one evening last week, there were five tables with people in them when we arrived - the staff had plenty of time to chat ahead of seating us a few minutes after we stood at the front There were four dirty tables around us - they remained that way for about 20 mins even though only...

My friends and I had a late lunch here today. They have all day breakfast so we ordered pancakes & waffles. They came with sides like bacon, sausages, eggs and hash browns. The place was clean, service was quick and the staff were friendly. For the price we paid, I think it's worth it.

Friendly service as well as quick. I don't write reviews that often but I was impressed because of how quick the service was at this particular Denny's! Great job guys!

We ate at the restaurant because it is attached to the Sandman Hotel where we were staying. To be fair we only ate at the restaurant once and we're not a big fan of Denny's to start with. Denny's breakfast have been good in the past but that's their limit in our opinion. Any way we were met with an... More

We stayed in the adjacent hotel for 3 days so we dined here often. The food and service seemed inconsistent; mostly good food and good service but we had a few instances where the waitress seemed very moody in inexperienced which translated into poor food quality as well. All and all, decent value and a nice clean place.

We came for breakfast while staying at the hotel. The kids all really loved their meals and the service was excellent, but later we all started feeling pretty sick. We stopped in for lunch the next day and just tried to order fresh food to avoid illness but it took a nose dive from average to inedible. Although two of... More

Took some friuends visiting from Texas on a Saturday morning at 9:30. It took an hour and a half. Waitress was confused & delivered food to us that was not ours and took ours to someone else before sorting it out. Never did get water but asked three times. Pancakes on Grand Slam arrived 10 minutes after rest of the... More
