Review of Denny's

409 Bypass Rd, Williamsburg, VA 23185

Overall Rating


They have items marked on the menu as gluten free, with an English muffin being a big breakfast draw. However, they do NOT / NOT use a separate toaster. I asked the server multiple times and even the manager and they said it is the same toaster and they just throw it in the slot where all the regular breads and English muffins go. Eggs, meats and hash browns are prepared on a separate grill from where pancakes are made.

I had scrambled eggs, a ham slice, and hash browns, all of which marked as GF and which the server said are prepared on a different grill from where the pancakes are made. The ham was a bit tough, the hash browns quite dry and tasteless until I added salt and pepper; nothing to make me want to go back.

Three (yes three) different cups of coffee came with 1-2 little gnats floating on top - the kind of gnats that often are found in houseplants, yet there were no live plants in the restaurant. They did comp the coffee, but it really made me wonder what might be running around in the kitchen.
