Never again will i go to there. The service the last time i went before they changed it was awful and the place was revolting. After they closed down and what i presumed was clean up i decided to give it one more chance, and again the service was horrible our waitress
was very unattentive and only came to the table once after we got our food to drop off the check. Though the new decorations are nice the building itself still needs work and you can already see signs that its not being kept clean.

Did you see what they did to to the men's room?

NOTHING!

It's the same stinky, stained, filthy, dimly lit dive latrine that it was before -- not a single bit of improvement or even cleaning

shocking to think such a dump gets the corporate stamp of approval to reopen

You think they're nasty, try the restrooms at Ponderosa. They are disgusting. My ole lady says the other restroom is nasty too.

unfortunately I've seen the Ponderosa men's room a few times. I very rarely go to that place like maybe twice a year when I feel like chowing down on salad.

Denny's men's room is nearly as bad as Ponderosa. DISGUSTING.

I haven't been in that Denny's in over three years, and I live right in Herkimer. Does anyone know if the inside of the restaurant still smells strongly of PISS the closer you get to those restrooms???? Unbelieveable, unmistakeable stench!!! That's why I stopped eating there. The girls would try to seat us near the kitchen/restroom area and we would refuse that seating and sit as far from that area as they could get us.

What, do all of the employees OUTRIGHT REFUSE to thoroughly clean those bathrooms, so they always smell like piss??? Or is there a sewer problem in or under the building?? You would think that the Manager or District Manager of that place would have taken care of the source of that stench years ago, when it first became noticeable. I wonder how many customers have complained about that issue.

People complain and complain and still keep going back. The Ponderosa parking lot is packed and everyone complains. Maybe if you stop eating at either place you'll get someone's attention. You'll also stop giving your money away to another chain.

I must agree about that strong urine smell, near the restrooms..it is quite disgusting, and I too, refuse to sit anywhere in that area..I have been to other Denny's and have always enjoyed decent food,in a clean atmosphere...not sure what happened or is going on with our Denny's

So, it STILL smells like piss OUTSIDE the restroom area??!! WOW, thanks for the heads up. I guess I'll inqire again in another three years to see if the piss stench is gone yet; in the meantime I'll go to Donna's or even the Empire Diner, if I'm desperate for breakfast. Thanks.

that entire men's room and i suspect the ladies room too should have been ripped out from the guts. flooring, walls, ceilings and fixtures all need to be replaced. one hot summer day we sat back near the bathrooms and it was hot inside too and as a result the stench of urine wafting out from the toilet areas was overpowering.

I will bet that the place is owned by out of the country folks or towel heads. Dirty scums, and the place alwasy smells like pee.

Perhaps the manager should go in those restrooms with a full-size fireman's hose and spray nozzle and spray the ceilings, walls, floors, sinks and toilets down with all of that pressure, like they do to an elephant's or a gorilla's cage at a zoo! Maybe that would get rid of the stench, if every employee in the place refuses to go in them to do a thorough cleaning and disinfecting with conventional cleaning products and methods. I'm sure the Herkimer Fire Department would let Denny's borrow a pumper truck for about an hour for that purpose. I'm not kidding! Someone should call Denny's up and suggest it to them.

Literally tons of urine dating back to the Howard Johnsons days sprayed by men some with a cetain malicious glee has been leaching through the floors and into the underlying soil for decades at Denny's.

A firehose would only scratch the surface.

The entire bathroom needs to be torn up, and a portable backhoe or men with pointy shovels brought in to excacavate the urine-soaked soil to a depth of at least five feet.

that is the only way for the foul nose-curdling stench of urine to be fully expunged from the Herkimer Dennys.

The place did not look much different and still the floor looks dirty. I refuse to go on the right side where the booths were when there was pee smell bad. not sure on the restrooms though.

All the old folks who sit in the seats piss themselves much and they wont clean it
