While the fare at Denny's, regardless of the location, is fairly consistent, the service and atmosphere can vary widely. In this instance, the food was good, the service was excellent, and staff was friendly, hospitable, and welcoming. The atmosphere was great, too: background music was...More

Service was fine and food was normal Denny's ! Was a fast and east breakfast spot in a town where nothing is easy to get to! A remodel is very much needed. But food was good and staff was friendly convenient if you are staying...More

We ordered the philly omelette and a side of pancake and enjoyed the meal. The service was prompt and the waitress took good care of us. The restaurant was clean and cheerful. The food was delicious

If you've ever been to a Denny's, this is just like all the rest. The food was hot, it tasted good, and the service was pleasant. The bathroom could use some sprucing up, but other than that, it was what we expected.

I ate breakfast here several times in the course of a visit to Monterey, mainly because it was close to my hotel. Standard Denny's fare, attentive waiters, and not expensive.

A lot of the Denny's restaurants in California are licensed to sell beer but for some reason this one isn't, maybe due to stricter licensing laws in the city of Monterey. Apart from that the menu is the same and this restaurant prepares tasty food...More
