We were looking for a local breakfast place, but nothing nearby. So while Denny's not usually our pick, we stopped in at this location as close to the highway. What a pleasant surprise. The restaurant was very clean, nice hostess and good waiter. Our eggs & bacon and hash browns were cooked to perfection. I would stop here anytime for... More

Breakfast and late night snacks are frequent for us - The prices are reasonable and the coffee is great. We have visited three times this month.

There were a couple years that things were not so great. Customer service and efficiency have come back. Food quality has gone up. Parking normally not a... More

The breakfast selection is very good and the food beats most of the competition as far as taste and price. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. If you are craving breakfast this is the place to go.

We stopped for a Saturday lunch at Denny's and were pleasantly surprised. The décor is not fancy, but clean, comfortable and functional. They have both booths and tables. Our server, Marvin, was friendly and courteous. My wife asked for a BLT (which wasn't on the menu) and Marvin said it was no problem. I decided to try the prime rib... More

Denny's a reliable place for breakfast. Not all Denny's are the same but for the most part, the basic breakfast (eggs, meat, potato and bread) is practically the same at each location. Had a nice relaxing meal here this month and would return when next in the area.

One would think that when it comes to the well known Denny's restaurant chain, they are basically all the same, and they couldn't be more wrong. Even though they generally tend to serve the same menu times, pride in ownership makes a great difference. A good solid management can increase quality of the same items that in other Denny's do...
