Breakfast buffet looked okay - but upon taste - it was not - took advantage of freshly made pancakes and eggs which were very good - but for $10 - a definite disappointment. Floors of restaurant were very sticky and you could almost see the dirt; mentioned it to another server and she said - "yeah - we know". Our... More

We don't usually go 'off property' but thought of an all-you-can-eat breakfast when we were starving sounded like a good idea. We waited 25 minutes. While we were there, the chef in the back quit. Like BIG TIME quit. He was swearing and throwing things. It was quite exciting. The kids loved it. But it doesn't make for the best... More

Whilst traveling through Tennessee a few weeks ago, I came across 'Shoney's' and gave it a go- fantastic! So when I saw it in Orlando, I was super excited! Even though it's not a fancy restaurant, the food and service is great! Whether you order off the menu or decide on one of their buffets, you are sure to have... More

Great breakfast food for families. They even had someone in the restaurant making mouse themed balloon animals.

Food is pretty much the standard burger and chips unless you eat from the buffet, not bad but nothing to get excited over, one thing I didn't particularly like was one of the staff members who was a BIG girl couldn't walk past the buffet without picking at something, even worse she was just using her fingers. If she concentrated... More

We are here after a park one night. We had the buffet. It's not a huge buffet but the food was hot and it was quick. It's just average in taste and quality but that's what I expect from a buffet. You can also order off the menu but we didn't.

I love breakfast, especially after running a 1/2 marathon. We stopped at Shoney's, I have never been here before and live out of town. It looked decent, breakfasty and such. I was surprised at how limited their breakfast menu actually was- like very limited. So, the obvious choice was the breakfast buffet. I choose the fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, bacon,... More

We stopped in for breakfast and wound up getting the breakfast buffet. The food was good and they kept it full. The service was not great. When you think that all the waiter had to do was check on our drinks and remove our empty plates, he was slacking. We had to search for him to get a coffee refill... More

It had been years since I was at a Shoney's. Now, I remember why. The staff was friendly and nice, but definitely not excited to be there. They moved like robots. I had the buffet for breakfast. The bacon was "extra crispy" (over cooked with no flavor left). The scrambled eggs were OK, as was most of the fruit, melon,... More
