We like to dine there when wanting a nice buffet. The server was polite and friendly. The food was hot and plenty. The atmosphere was plesant. We like the seafood buffet the best. However don't forget to try the strawberry pie, it's worth the extra calories.

We stop here most times when we are in Franklin visiting family. We usually just eat the bar here, which is always good. It's a typical shoney's buffet bar offering a selection of items including a salad bar. Good service, our waitress always kept our drinks topped off and plates cleared and was super nice. Will be back.

We stay in Franklin NC twice a year and we love Shoney's so we always try to have dinner there and then again brunch the next morning before we leave. Dinner on Friday was great. Awesome server and good food. I left her an $8 tip. Our issue began when we arrived for brunch on Saturday about 10am. The whole... More

When I walked in I was greeted by the manager with the warm, friendly smile. Server Bony approached us right away with the menu presentation. usually when I order hot water with lemon and honey servers give me a smirk not in this case. She was truly happy to assist us. We were the last customers and I did not... More

My son and I ate at the Shoney's Thanksgiving buffet. With 1 drink, it cost about $18 each plus tip. The food was very disappointing. Fake mashed potatoes, canned gravey, "turkey roll" (lunchmeat sliced a little thicker, with pink veins running thru it). I was glad to see there was some fried chicken and the sweet potatoes which were good,... More

This place has the best scrambled eggs I've had on a buffet- not rubbery and not runny- just right. Bacon was good and crispy. Instead of hash browns, they had "home fries" which are small diced potatoes pan fried with a little onion and bell pepper. Really good! Other meat choices were sausage links, ham, and chicken fingers. Grits, biscuits,... More

Great breakfast buffet, courteous staff, good prices, clean and comfortable. We were very pleased with our breakfast other than we ate to much.

We stopped for a late lunch after traveling 300 miles. The buffet was good, the fish excellent, and the value was exceptional. We ate the breakfast buffet before we left. It was okay, but there seems to be little change in selection over the years, and it was kinda bland.

This was my first visit to a Shoney's Restaurant. I ordered the fish and chips. The fish was about the size of my little finger but covered with a thick outer layer of crunchy crust. The plate arrived with 6 pieces of fish, a few tablespoons of cold overcooked steamed vegetables, which was the 'side' I chose, and a piece... More
