This isn't the best Denny's I have ever been to, but I have always gotten good food and service here. Like many other 24 hour establishments I have been to, it is kind of chaotic, no matter what time of day you eat here. I will admit it would be nice to see this place kept up a little neater...

Stopped in for a quick late breakfast. Eggs weren't really appealing as there were what I consider griddle bits in them. Like most chains there should be a standard on the way eggs are presented. My friends meal came with OJ which was unavailable & that's understandable for a breakfast place. The overhead vent I'm guessing the AC dripped water... More

Although t food was pretty good the place itself didn't look clean at all. I didn't even go into the ladies room. The floors needed sweeping. My visit was around 130pm. Having us sit near the counter proably wasn't a good idea cause behind the counter was nasty. . Our waiter Ricardo was very pleasant so I give him kudos... More

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

We've been here so far twice since we've been in the area it's really close to the hotels and the place is really cute it's not like the normal everyday Denny's you normally see around ! Each time we've been in there the manager has came by to see how everything is you don't see that very often so we... More

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.

Thank timaeus1

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.
