Denny’s

Came here for breakfast, but it turned into brunch/lunch due to the wait. First off, somebody tried to cut in front of me when I was waiting patiently in line. If the manager didn’t happen to come by and point out to the staff that I had been waiting first, the other party would have been seated before me. Once my boyfriend and I were seated, it took a long time for the meal to come out. Our waiter had kindly apologized in advance that our service would be slower than usual because he was managing multiple tables and covering for another staff member due to issues with taking break (aka work drama). I did appreciate this early information so we knew what to expect, but the wait turned out to be ridiculous, on top of getting my boyfriend’s order wrong!

I had the Sticky Bun Pancake Breakfast with sausage. I enjoyed my fluffy, sweet pancakes. My boyfriend, on the other hand, did not completely enjoy his order. He had the Steak Skewer and Eggs Skillet, and the steak was juicy and great, but he had specifically requested the mushrooms to be on the side because he hates mushrooms and was going to give them to me. He also requested toast for an additional 99 cents (as indicated on the menu), but the toast didn’t arrive until he was practically done with his meal, AND he was charged $1.99 instead because the waiter said he put in the toast as a side after he had already ordered the skillet meal. Well, if the waiter wasn’t so busy, my boyfriend would have been able to request the toast sooner, but we couldn’t get his attention and had no idea it would result in an additional charge than indicated on the menu until we received the receipt, which took a long time to obtain too!

Here’s what we had:

Steak Skewer and Eggs Skillet

+ Steak Skewer and Eggs Skillet: Grilled sirloin steak atop fire-roasted bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and red-skinned potatoes, topped with a sweet bourbon sauce and two eggs ($10.29) – add toast for an additional 99 cents

Overall, the food was good, but the service was extremely slow. It’s one thing to be a little slower than usual, but this was so slow that what should have been a quick, no-longer-than-an-hour meal to a two hour meal!
