Manager negligence

I was employed at this Dennys last summer as a bartender. To make a long story short my bar manager called me and told me that the District Manager (whom has 8 stores) told her to take me off the schedule because I'm Manic Depressive. It never affected my job but I don't have the attorneys that... read more

We were there during the "off season" for the resort, so while the restaurant was well staffed, the staff were not attentive, but appeared instead to be socializing. Fortunately, we just visited the restaurant for breakfast, which was passable.

We only stopped because we needed out of the car and some breakfast. Avoid if possible. The place a filthy, the bathrooms gross, and we were seated by an employee out of uniform. The only saving grace was our waitress/cook. Yep you read that correctly. She was doing it all, and was very pleasant. Better than the rest if the... More

We went here after an event at Kings Dominion, they were completely unprepared for people coming after the park closed. The staff was clearly overworked and tired, resulting in alot of rudeness, and alot of the food came out wrong. If they look busy just stay away.

Where to even begin....... Party of 3 adults and 2 children. We had just gotten out of the State Fair close by, on a Saturday night (1st weekend in October) around 10:30ish. Walked into Denny's and waited for someone to approach us to be seated. After a short wait, we followed the hostess to the table and were seated. First... More

We visit this Denny's everytime we are in the area. The staff look a little rough around the edges but they are all super friendly and the food is always great!! The other restaurants in the are raise the prices due to the fact it is near Kings Dominion but not them. My kids and I love it!!

OK - we were here in Sep on a Sunday night. First, we walked in and they wanted to take us all the way to the back of the restaurant. My mom is disabled so we asked to sit closer to the door. There were 3 in our party and we sat at our table for 20 minutes. No one... More

This is just your typical Denny's. The food is ok and the service could be a lot better. We had 4 different servers.

The waitress was so up to her job she didn't miss a beat. I only hope other people treat her as kindly. Awesome personality.
