Walked in and staff did not have a welcoming attitude. Staff was having a loud conversation about whether the coffee was regular or decaf. Both seemed to be confused. We came in at a time where there was not too much happening and we're not seated in a timely fashion. Overall horrible experience. Definitely will not be going back.

Very good breakfast food, but has become pretty pricy. I flew solo while running work errands, ordered a platter and water and it cost me $16.00 plus tip

Had breakfast here since near hotel. Friendly staff, great filling breakfast, good value. Daughter had wheat pancakes and fruit. I tried the "hammy" breakfast sandwich which was delicious. Would definitely go back.

I ordered the zesty nachos for takeout. I usually love these and get them every once in awhile to take home. When I got there it took a few minutes for them to address me (I'm standing right at the register) they rang me up, gave me my drink and walked away. I saw that my bag of food was... More

Ate here on the morning of Feb 15, 2016. Place was moderately busy, but service took a while because they were obviously short-handed. We didn't mind since the manager and our waitress were very nice and kept thanking us for being patient. We could tell they were working as hard as they could. Food was good too.

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.

Thank Ryan P

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.
