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.

Not the best I've been to

Nachos were delicious but the steak Cobb salad wasn't good. Meat was too cooked and the avocado was hard, not quite ripe yet. Staff was decent, so no complaining there.

Good food and good service. My only complaint was that upon arrival there was a maintenance person who started grinding on something metal. It was super loud and stinky. Thankfully, it didn't last long.

My wife and I really like this place. It is clean and has the classic American diner vibe. The staff, while busy, is always friendly. Food is good and decently priced.

The service here was very nice (Austin, thank you). Typical of a Denny's to be clean, though not a palace. Food quality was nice, and even being with a large group we were able to get our food within 10-15 minutes of ordering.

Been here several times - the food is always good, the service is always bad. Even though we live within walking distance of this Denny's, we drive to a nearby city when we want Denny's because the service here is so bad.

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

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.

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.
