Food was pretty good for a Denny's, more than enough to eat. I really like their chicken soup. We ate there three times so it must have been OK.

Very busy restaurant had to wait a few minutes but it was worth the wait. Service was great liked the idea that they do not take you to a table until the tables have been cleared and cleaned. Large portions and very good food. We had breakfast one day and supper another day. Good location only about two blocks from... More

Fast and friendly!! Stopped in for snack waiting for someone to come into airport, chose 1/2 order of nachos not knowing what to expect and was happily surprised, nice order fresh and crisp for less than $6.00. Enough for snack for 2.

The food was pretty good, but if you are in a rush do not go here. The service was very slow, one waitress for the entire restaurant. Awful, they saved a few bucks in staff, but we will never go back.

The staff was nice, the service was fast. And they serve 24/7. The food is good and the prices are good too as usual. It's a Denny's.

Courteous staff, except that everyone was around a back area when we entered and while we could see them none turned around to acknowledge us until we called out to them That over they were good otherwise and the food was good and plentiful.

Cynthia E is a very, very good waitress. She acts like she really likes life and conveys happiness with her service. The food we had was better than I expected. Wife - chicken wrap and my Turkey Sandwich. Price $6.00 each. With Cynthhia's great service she got a very nice tip. If only everyone was as pleasant.

Greeted and seated promptly for a late breakfast at a booth. Four of us. Server took beverage order. We then ordered our breakfast. The new pancakes are delicious. Such good food and reasonable prices. Server checked on us a number of times and kept beverages filled. Bill was correct. Used AARP for 15% off. what a great breakfast!

Going to a restaurant with my crew that day was a recipe for disaster - exhausted children, dietary restrictions, small budget, big family. HOWEVER, we received REMARKABLE service by a patient and knowledgeable waitress. She kept things moving, accommodated our gluten-free family, and smiled through it all. She turned a meal that I had dreaded into one of our best... More
