Denny's is a full-service pancake house/coffee shop/fast casual family restaurant chain. It operates over 1,600 restaurants in the United States

Denny's is known for always being open, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert around the clock. Unlike many other restaurant chains, Denny's does not close on holidays or nights, except where required by law. This site will provide news and copycat recipes for items on the menu at Denny's restaurants.



Breakfast for Dinner

Denny’s has served breakfast all day since the restaurant was founded in 1953.  Because breakfast is served around the clock, Denny's says it is the highest-selling category during every hour of the day, including off-peak times. "Many popular dishes, such as our signature Grand Slam are in demand at breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night, so it’s only natural that we’d provide it 24/7," says John Dillon, Denny’s Chief Marketing Officer.

In October, the restaurant will be introducing its popular holiday menu including all new breakfast items such as Pumpkin Pecan Pie Pancakes.
