For a great "comfort food" traditional diner experience, this one can't be beat. Great food, well prepared for amazingly low cost. Don't know how they do it! Large menu - many interesting choices. Staff has spoiled me rotten.

Can't go wrong with their tasty breakfast selections. The portions were generous so we ordered their Lumberjack Slam (pancakes, toasts, eggs, rosti, sausages and bacons) and moons over my hammy (ham, cheese and egg sandwich toast) for 2 adults and 2 toddlers. Kids eat free Everyday from 4pm to 10pm. (Limit to 1 kid per adult)

There are several choices in the immediate area but Denny's always seems to have very nice menu choices, much better than the others, prices are always decent. Skillet dishes are always good for any time. The staff is nice, food consistently good and service is prompt. Rest rooms are a bit dirty and could stand some attention but that's only... More

In case you've never been to a Denny's (which hardly seems possible!) ....but perhaps you're from a different country where they don't have them. At any rate, most Denny's are about the same...nothing special, just sort of basic food at average prices. In a pinch, you could do worse.

Chose to have breakfast here, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We came off the highway and missed the entrance - so be aware! Service was by Faviola G and she was EXCELLENT and proactive. We ordered from the 4-6-8 menu. Fantastically tasty, great value and nice setting. Only downside.....Wifi signal was very poor. Definitely would visit again....if passing.

My wife and I are big on Denny's...when we travel, it's always breakfast there...biscuits & gravy.. the only real variable will be how much gravy I'm going to get. she gets salad, since we went early, it wasn't packed
