On the first night in Monterey both of us was tired, so we were just looking for the closest easiest place. Next door to our hotel is a Dennys. Since I was only thirsty and craving for my beloved milk, my order was two glasses of milk, and my partner ordered a club sandwich. It was probably good, looked all... More

I ate breakfast here several times in the course of a visit to Monterey, mainly because it was close to my hotel. Standard Denny's fare, attentive waiters, and not expensive.

A lot of the Denny's restaurants in California are licensed to sell beer but for some reason this one isn't, maybe due to stricter licensing laws in the city of Monterey. Apart from that the menu is the same and this restaurant prepares tasty food fairly quickly and reasonable prices. We were staying within walking distance so given we knew... More

During a business trip to Monterey, I was happily lodged adjacent to this Dennys! I love Dennys! They're so consistant in their food, which is ALWAYS terrific! The only variable might be the service, and let me tell you, the servce at THIS Dennys is OUTSTANDING!! I'd been served cold coffee, by mistake, and my server took it off my... More

Location sounds really sketchy, lots of people loitering in front of the restaurant and homeless people were in and out all the time. It's definitely not a nice place to eat. Our waiter didn't seem to care about us, nothing was set up, no fork or knife and honestly, he didn't care. It took forever to get our meals so... More

We were visiting Monterey for 2 days and were looking for a place to dine after a long day. Denny's was open 24 hours and had a wide selection for a meal at anytime of the day. The portion size is good but the flavour is amazing and the fries even better! We had a Philly melt and steak skewer.... More

We wanted to try Denny's as it seemed to be an American classic establishment but we regretted it instantly. The food was not great, the coffee was completely un-drinkable and the service was poor. Took far too long to get our food given the fact that there wasn't many people in the restaurant.

I've passed by this location many times and never really noticed it was here. On this particular occasion I had time to kill and decided to give them a try-what a nice surprise! The place was nice and clean and the interior was in good shape and not well used as is my usual Denny's location. The server was very... More
