When we walked in the door, the manager was giving a customer a hard time of a strawberry pie that she insisted she didn't order, he kept hounding her that she ordered it. I felt bad for the lady. We were seated pretty fast, there were only 4 or 5 tables... More

This was my first visit to this location. The service was great, the servers were on top of taking orders and keeping drinks filled. The problem was the food. The hot and cold bar was good. The menu item I ordered was awful. The dish was called HALF-O-POUND. It was a hamburger without a bun and a baked potato. The... More

Went her for lunch after shopping at the mall. The food was under cooked, no favor. Should have gone to McDonald's across the street.

Shoney's is great family style dining. The food is what we call "comfort" food. Good clean homestyle menu as well as great full selection salad, soup and hot bar...would highly recommend.
