Stopped in about 15 minutes before closing and was told, "I can seat you but you have 10 minutes to eat" and we cleaned up the salad bar. Who does that?? Sadly we had little other choice in the area. Either seat us or I'm sorry we are closing now...

We stopped here on our return from So. Car. The breakfast buffet was very good. Everything was hot and well presented. Our server was very genial. Will surely stop at a Shoney's again while traveling.

Breakfast bar had fried bologna. It was good. Ordered a patty melt with fries. Wife ordered hamburger with onion rings Order was filled the way we asked and sandwiches were very good. Service was great and prices were reasonable.

Don't eat here. The building is in disrepair. The bathrooms were run-down, and dirty. The food was unimpressive. The salad bar had plain, iceberg lettuce. Not a good selection on the buffet. My husband's fried cod sandwich was over-cooked and tasted nothing like cod. My meal wasn't much better. We come through this area every year but we will never... More

We stopped here on our drive to Knoxville. It was our first time visiting a Shoney's so we decided to try the buffet. It was a very good buffet as these things go. It contained meat loaf and baked and fried chicken. The mash potatoes were either out of a can or preprocessed from a package and tasteless as was... More

Tried the breakfast buffett for the 1st time in years. Some if the best bacon I've ever had,not to mention the eggs and sausage. I also had a salad off the salad bar for desert!

Besides the fact that the server was very nice and tried her best, the food was awful! The choices were extremely bad, remembering what used to be available at Shoney's many years ago, and the quality of food was horrible! Choices were very inconsiderable and I will never eat at Shoney's again!

My husband and I hadn't eaten at one for 15 years so when we received a gift certificate so we thought we would give it a try. We ate from the buffet and it was a mistake. We arrived at 7pm and so much of the food was dried up or had been sitting for awhile. I asked the waitress... More

I stopped for breakfast at this southern institution that has closed all locations near my Atlanta home. This USED TO BE a really top notch buffet, but now I know apparently why all of the Shoney's near me have gone out of business. The basics were still there, and really can't be screwed up -- scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage etc.... More
