The last time we went to Denny's was about 3 years ago and the food was so bad we literally didn't go back for 3 years (no joke). Tonight we thought we've eaten everywhere else and lets try Denny's. So 2 adults, 1 child and 1 infant made their way to Denny's for dinner. The service was good and the... More

I have taken my Grandsons here several times. There is a great selection of food for young and old, nice steaks

Meals were a average and we paid for one takeaway meal as a member of the group couldn't make it, they forgot to give us our takeaway meal and then we had to wait for it to be made. Waitress was rude and very un friendly- not so much as a smile. Even when they forgot our meal she was... More

Came here for breakfast which was already over priced at $17. The waitress was friendly but that was all that could be said in a positive light about Denny's. They would not replace tomatoes for baked beans so paid $3 extra to have these on the side. Given the price, I was expecting to receive a relatively nice breakfast with... More

Would not stop here again. The kids meals were over cooked and the curry was like a watery soup with no real substance, even let my nine year old try it and he said the same thing.

Was in Wellington on a holiday and visited this part of the island. Parking is a hassle and took awhile to find a spot. Was quickly seated. Order was taken promptly. No free wifi. 20 min wait on food.

Denny's is a cheap place to eat out if you want a change, the food is simple and is well priced. The detail of service is as you would expect for the kind of place it is and this is fine for the prices we pay.

Denny's is what it is .... a good family go to with burgers, shakes and steaks thrown. It reminds me of Cobb & co way back when. We come here fairly regularly and overall the service and food are good; as a standard meal I tend to get a T-bone steak which is always cooked as I have asked, and... More

Visited with the family. Friendly service, comfortable seating. Food came out fairly quickly, tasted great. Family had a good time. Price was a bit higher, but still considered mid-range.

We have been here quite a few times over the years. I have usually enjoyed the food I have had on these visits, it is good value. I also like the service model they use and they have always had helpful, courteous waiters. It's no longer open 24/7 and on the most recent visit the place is beginning to feel... More
