We dropped into this place on May 12, 2016 at just before 2pm. The first thing we noticed was that there was no one at the front desk...and we had to wait for about 5 minutes for someone to even show up. We were then quickly shown our table by a guy with no words, this felt all rushed and... More

I have stopped here many times over years and found this Denny's to be good, but always busy...good for them. The service was good, the bold coffee fresh-made good and the apple pie very large and excellent.

I don't understand how Denny's is so highly rated. It is the same as any other Denny's everywhere. Pancakes, waffles, etc. This is a diner that is a chain and it lives up to that expectation. It does not blow you away, it falls directly in the adequate/ok category.

This seems to be a place that doesn't watch the front counter much. Prices are not that good,though there is something of a money saver with the items that have a beverage included ($8 total is not bad). Sometimes has a beggar to step over at front entry and sort of get the feeling workers don't get a fair shake... More

Fast service, friendly staff, we enjoyed eating here. We like Dennys all over America, this is a great one. We were travelling from England and can't belive the value at Dennys. Would definately recommend, there are always customers here and the staff were great.
