http://www.dennys.com/#/location - Also on Yelp: http://www.yelp.com/biz/dennys-colonial-heights This Denny's is located in a 50's diner type building, inside and out! I've never seen a Denny's with this decor :) We loved it and it's just off an exit of I95. Will definitely stop again while traveling! Please put this restaurant on here, people will love it.

I'm from California and this chain is very prevalent there. The service was good, the food was not cooked as well as I'm used to seeing it. I thought the coffee could have been stronger but it is great for a quick bite before work.

I needed to be at Fort Lee at 5:45am, so this was the ONLY option at 4:45am, as it's 24 hours. Oh my gosh. Next time I'll just pack my own breakfast. This is possibly the dirtiest restaurant I have ever been in. Everything was either greasy or sticky. The best part was the huge pancake piece that stuck to... More

There was hair in our food, and it took over 45 minutes for it to be brought back out. And another person had asked for an extra side of rice to be brought out with rice and that took about 45 minutes to an hour. We asked for the manager and he threatened to ban us because he said we... More

Ate breakfast here and nothing we ordered came out correct. The only reason for the 3 stars was the manager resolved the issue without problems. Waitress charged for every extra (I guess thinking she was getting a bigger tip) but that only makes me subtract off the tip. Just a typical average dennys.

Could not get service! First no one took our order. Then no water. Next, stale coffee, and no sugar. Our order came, no ketchup. I asked for fresh coffee, and then had to ask for the manager. The place is a hangout for the staff. They're interested in themselves, not the customers.

This has got to be the loudest Denny's, or any restaurant, for that matter that I have ever been in. I couldn't hear my companions over the din. It's extremely crowded, the tables are packed together, grungy looking, and LOUD. The waitress was good. The food was good. But I will avoid this restaurant with everything in my power. We... More

This Denny's looks a lot more like a classic stainless steel New Jersey Dinner than any cookie cutter chain family restaurants. A traditional older dinner waitress was professional, efficient and earned a great tip. Service was prompted, the home made hash was first rate and I was impressed. When the manager rang me up he checked on how I found... More
