Found the food and service much better than pastDenny's experiences in other locations. I had the veggie omelette. HUGE!! Delicious. With grits and English muffin it was a great lunch option for being on the road. Easy and close access off I-81. Will go there on anther trip past Salem VA.

This is a very nice restaurant always seems to be staffed with friendly people and it is clean. I ordered the waffle and bacon - it was served hot and very quickly. My husband ordered the fit and healthy breakfast and he was very impressed. We will go back soon.

It was almost midnight when we went and they were fast and friendly! The food was great that late at night after having travelled late.

I have very seldom stopped at a Denny's restaurant but had two very good experiences off of I95 on the Southern route to Florida. So I figured I try this Denny's while staying at the nearby Hampton Inn. Mistake. The particular meal I was served was edible that's about all I can say about it. A very similar meal purchased...

This a nice enough Denny's restaurant, except that the service was rather slow. The menu lists the calorie count for each dish and some of them are astronomical like 1490 for the Lumberjack slam.

Denny's that I have visited have a decent array of entrees, prices are quite reasonable, and the food is pretty good. But the big problem most of time is SPEED OF SERVICE!! All of these apply at the Denny's in Salem, Virginia. Even if dining alone and knowing what you want, it often requires at least an hour here, sometimes... More

A variety of food albeit breakfast is the biggie. Portions are good, served hot and reasonably fast. Better than Shoneys and IHOP

Our orders were wrong, and we got back to our hotel only to find this out. We should have checked, but we're on the Road for hours and Tired. We walked back to the Restaurant , we had a Trailer on the Truck and we're already parked so it was easier. Although we were Annoyed, the staff was kind and... More
