Denny’s Senior Discount Policy and Menu Explained
Denny’s does not offer a senior citizen’s discount. With that being said, Denny’s does have a 55+ menu that offers the same food in smaller portions at s discounted price.
According to Denny’s website, the restaurant offers ten discounted menu items. The menu offerings include breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. The items available are:
- Scrambled Eggs and Cheddar Breakfast
- Belgian Waffle Slam
- Fit Fare Loaded Veggie Omelet
- Club Sandwich
- Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Soup
- Country Fried Steak
- Grilled Chicken
- Grilled Haddock
There is little information on the website about the menu. One would assume that only those 55 and older can order from the list. But there is no mention of such a rule on the website. If you have a local Denny’s your best bet is to ask if they offer this discount the next time you visit.
Some of these menu options are low in calories. But there does not seem to be a particular health benefit from ordering off the 55+ menu. Denny’s is a fast-food restaurant after all. But the smaller portions do translate to fewer calories.
