To Our Valued Guests,

With the current state of Coronavirus/COVID-19, we know that many are concerned about their health and that of their loved ones. As Canada's diner, we share that concern. We want to assure you that we are taking every step we can to safeguard our employees and guests, their families and the communities we serve.

Our commitment to the hospitality that you deserve is unwavering, and Denny’s is confident in the measures we have taken to promote safety and wellbeing at each and every one of our locations. To reinforce that commitment, in addition to our regular stringent cleaning protocols, we are actively reinforcing personal hygiene practices and all contact surfaces are being sanitized on a more frequent basis with the appropriate cleaning fluids to ensure the wellbeing of our guests and our employees.

As Canada’s diner, we feel a deep level of responsibility in the role we play in the communities we live and work in.

We are confident that you will have a safe and enjoyable dining experience at Denny’s throughout this time; however, if you are unable to join us for a meal, we are happy to extend a 20% discount on any phoned in pick-up orders or free delivery through SkipTheDishes. We promise to remain vigilant to staying informed and doing our part in keeping our communities safe and great places to live and work. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Denny’s and appreciate your patronage.
