Not up to par

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.

like any other Denny's, I think this one needs to be remodeled, and maybe vaccum the rug when they can after being busy. Otherwise it was okay.

Many items were unavailable; we were told they were "out of them." What they did have came to the table cool, not hot. Getting seated takes almost as long as getting served or getting drinks refilled. Both take much longer than pizza delivery. We were overcharged almost every time (it was the only place to eat on - premises of... More

We are Best Western fans and because of icy road conditions we decided to get off the highway and spend the night at the hotel which is attached to Denny's restaurant. There were other restaurant choices but because we were unfamiliar with the area and ice on the roads we decided to go to Denny's for dinner, what a mistake.... More

Always great food and service. Denny's is open 24 hours a day which is great because you can take your time leaving KD and know you can go get a good hot meal and not feel rushed. Prices are very reasonable. When we visit KD, we usually eat a good breakfast there, go to KD, later we will leave KD... More

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 Dennys has. If... More

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
