When we arrived the seater wasn't particularly friendly but our waiter Jeremy immediately made up for it. Great personality always joking and made me laugh so hard I choked. 😂 Food is average but great for late breakfast/brunch.

My daughter & I visited Denny's on Sat., 11/12/2016 for a late dinner. I ordered the pancakes which are usually pretty good but boy was I surprised! These were the best pancakes I have ever eaten (and I'm 62 years old). They were light and fluffy, absolutely delicious. I complimented the manager on them when she came around and she... More

The Denny's in Salem is a "run of the mill" type of restaurant that serves all meals 24 hours a day. Food is fairly good but nothing outstanding to mention or write home about. Service is generally about average. Pricing is average for a middle of the road for this type of restaurant--reasonable. TIP; Hardee's is right across the street... More

This is your typical Denny's restaurant. Food was prepared well, the staff was very friendly, and the restaurant was clean as well as the rest rooms.

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...
