The Moonlight DIner was recommended by a desk clerk as an easy stop on our way to return our rental car. The food was excellent with generous portions and fair prices.

Best Chicken Fried Steak my husband and I have ever had. We will never be able to order it anywhere else again.

We had just flown into DIA and needed a good, solid meal. Since we were staying on Tower Road, we went to the nearby Ruby restaurant, and they couldn't seat us for 20 mins (even though there were numerous vacant tables). Continued south on Tower...More

Am old fashioned dinner, the ambiance is fantastic. There is a family section, an outdoor patio, as well as an adult room that serves drinks. The food is old fashioned and new fangled! Good sized portions, made the way you like it. Not over priced....More

First, I'd like to say that Trip Advisor has been a great source to help us find at least better than average food everywhere we've been, across the country! It's been a rare occurrence that we've chosen places to eat from the reviews listed here...More

Booked a hotel near DIA for an early morning flight back to Virginia and the Moonlight Diner was right next door. Breakfast was available 24/7, so I had eggs/potatoes/toast. Plenty of burgers, sandwiches, fries also on the menu.

The prices are good, and I believe you can even take a hotel shuttle to the diner. Some hotels are within walking distance, so if you are waiting for a flight and staying in an airport hotel, good place to go. The food was plenteous...More

It's conveniently located near the Denver International Airport. It can get crowded, but people are very nice. They prepare diner staples for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is all done well. Ice cream treats are fantastic, and the decor makes everything nicer. Great family friendly...More
