This is my second time here. Both times the food was good. Both times the service was slow-took quite sometime for the food to arrive. The staff were very nice and helpful This Denny's is close to I-90. Good for a quick (?) stop that is not fast food burger. Just be warned though that service is slow. (That's why... More

Denny's never fails to deliver a good breakfast. We do not have many left in MA where I love so I try to find them when on the road. Great service. Clean restaurant. Good Denny's fare.

This is a nice place to stop after a shopping trip. I like to get breakfast there because it's served any time of day.

We were staying in the next door hotel and needed a quick easy place for dinner. We think we made a good choice. The Nachos made a good meal for me, pappy. Grammy had a breakfast for dinner and liked it. Our granddaughter had the kid's spaghetti meal and she was all but giddy over it and really liked the... More

Nothing fancy, it is a chain, but the food is good and the waitress was very patient with the number of people in the restaurant. The place is clean. We stopped for a quick bite before heading out on a road trip.

I needed to stop for breakfast and this Denny's was next to my hotel. I didn't want the hotel breakfast, looking for a bit more substance. The restaurant was not busy. I was seated quickly. I carry wipes with me and wiped the seat and the table. When I checked out the entire counter was dirty and needed a good... More

I would give this restaurant "0" stars if I could. The waitress was friendly but it took forever literally to get waited on, then again to even get our drinks. This has to be the worst managed Denny's in the universe - no exaggeration! We finally walked out...Stay Away!

I had a typical breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast. It was very greasy and only adequate.

Nice brunch restaurant. Even though we had breakfast at Day's inn next door this was good place for brunch before heading out to drive. It is crowded but you will get place to sit. Your order may take longer than normal wait time because of crowd. Good is good and tasty. They can certainly improve the quality of service provided... More
