Service was not very good, and the food was lukewarm. Made mention to a manager about both issues. Have given this Denny's a chance twice and will not go back. It is closer to me but the drive to Merced for good service and food at the Denny's there is way worth the trip!!

Good service and great price..the grandaughters five and thier two friends enjoyed thier chocolate and vanilla milkshakes, banana splits, ice cream sundaes. Plus French fries smothered with cheese and large plate of nacho cheese. They can't wait for the end of the school year ice cream party.

What can you say? If you have ever had breakfast a Dennys it seems to always hit the spot. The Chilli burgers are the best. I have enjoyed everything I have ever ordered there and the service is always prompt and polite.

Wait staff sleeping in a booth when we arrived. Glasses and utensils were dirty! Avoid this location!

Stopped in here late morning for breakfast. Service was quick. Just a cautionary note, when waitress suggest an extra to go along with your order make sure you ask how much the extra will be. You could be in for a surprise! The menu was extensive with many choices. Food arrived promptly. Also, there was plenty of parking. If you... More

Was in Merced for High School reunion. Out looking around on Saturday 10/11 and got lost. Was hungry and very thirsty. Saw the Denny's sign and took the exit. From the moment I walked in, I was treated very well. The hostess was very nice. I ordered a glass of water right away and an iced tea. Got them both... More

We were here for breakfast after leaving Yosemite. It took awhile for someone to come to our table to get our order - it was not very crowded. Our food was good though and the bathrooms were clean which is a plus when you are traveling.

WiFi has been out for a few weeks, now they're out of cream cheese. Manger seemed to have no clue. Pick another Denny's.

After driving home from San Diego last night, we stopped to eat at Atwater Denny's. We often eat here and enjoy it but were really disappointed with this visit. In the past when I've ordered Tilapia from the senior menu it has been very good. I'll compare what I've received in the past vs last night: Old version (which I've... More

Good, friendly waitress. An openness. We guzzled two of their good and large milkshakes, made 50-50 choc.-vanilla for us. Burp.
