We appreciate the quick service & great food. We were visiting the area & were able to get to our church service with plenty of time to spare.

The food was good and reasonable in price. We met family there and was not rushed after eating. The staff was attentive and friendly.

About as poor as any restaurant that exists in Del Mar. Classic Denny's with poor food, a depressing surrounding and spotty service. Only went there twice over the past several years and swore I'd never go back.

Great food. Only had breakfast there, but they have full oversized menu. Breakfast was any combination you wanted. It was made quickly and tasted great. Price was under $10.00. Staff was very friendly and service was excellent.Would highly recommend.

We had lunch at the old reliable Dennys, you can always depend on the food to be the same everywhere which is a good thing. We also had a great server.

A large group of us went to Denny's at 2:00 am and had a great meal. They were understaffed considering tour unusually large group but did a great job accommodating us.

We were staying nearby at the Hilton Del Mar and this place is within walking distance. But this is America right? So we drove - that's right, a 2 minute walk became a drive :p. Although it was busy the service was excellent and the food was served hot. Nothing was too much trouble and I would have no hesitation... More

We had the vegetarian options, one was an omelet, the other was the vegetarian breakfast skillet. They were both amazing. Full of vegetables, perfectly cooked and really healthy. This was just a perfect start to the day when paired with the excellent coffee.

Thank Robin B
