Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

the meal was average, quality is not as it was in the past, and smaller portions than usual. what was the biggest let down which made the experience unenjoyable was the customer service. We had a very rude and toey waitress who took our order,...she was in a very bad mood, very unprofessional. To top it all off at the end of the dinner as i went to pay, she was hissing at me to swipe my card faster.. very strange lady. i have been going to this dennys for years, i will not be returning ever.More

Stopped in for lunch today. Great attentive service and good food. The mushroom burger was delicious and my partners Salmon Benedict was loaded with salmon and came with spinach and hashbrowns. Really good size meals for a really reasonable price. All the staff we spoke...to were friendly and attentive. We would definitely recommend and come back again.More

Absolutely shocking service by Dennys tonight. We arrived and were seated, waited 15 mi uses to be seen. Once we have the waiter our order we waited for 20 minutes and still no drinks bought over. A staff member came to ask if we had...ordered which we said we have. She went to find out what happened only to come back and say the original waiter had lost the order and nothing was handed in. Will not be going back to this joke of a placeMore

Grandson wanted to have his 20th birthday dinner here with family. 5 of us went, not busy for a Saturday night though we did arrive about 6pm. First impression were the servers. No smiles, no welcome and they were so slow. We eventually labelled them...zombie sloths. They slouched round and had no enthusiam at all. Drinks took ages to arrive each time we ordered. Some we got in a couple of minutes and others took 10 minutes or more. We had ordered our meals and were not overly hopeful but the chefs did an amazing job and the food was great. The gentleman who served the food was lovely and gave us the first smile of the night)Would I recommend people to go here. Yes for the food but no for the service. 4star purely for the food, took one off for the serviceMore

Its hard to know where to start. Basically what should be a great Diner, isn't. The food came out smothered in salty gravy, even the meals where it was specified No Gravy. The satay kebabs tasted off and when an enquiry was made as to...the freshness of the food, it was met with a negative reaction. I try to put something positive about a restaurant but in this case I can only think of the branded soft drinks as being ok.More

A great dining experience as always at this restaurant never fails to please. The only down point is the ketchup it's like an imitation banana mix BBQ flavour thin lifeless and lacking the traditional tomato sauce colour. We have asked the manager try to change...it but nothing happens this is only after he asks us if we enjoyed the dining experience full stop apart from that we recommend it to anybodyMore
