What a disappointment always thought shoney's was a good restaurant. The menu had very limited items, the service was good, nice and friendly waitress. Ordered the mushroom Swiss burger thought it was the best meal on the limited menu, food was extreamly hot. I had to try this restaurant but will never eat at another Shoney's. A huge disappointment.

Shoney's is a family-friendly diner with a variety menu similar to Denny's or IHOP. This Shoney's has been there a long time and I have eaten there many times over the last 30 years or so, but not in the last few years. Recently I was in town and met some friends there on a Thursday for breakfast. It wasn't... More

My extended family and I went to Shoneys last weekend. It was hands down the worse dinning experience we have ever had. The buffet food did look good, but the taste was awful. Three of us ordered off the menu. but only ate two bites of their meal. Among other problems the food was undercooked and cold. It was just... More

Walked in at lunch time and no lunch on buffet. Was more breakfast than lunch the whole time. Coffee was great and not too strong or old.

for a buffet, the food is really pretty good, and if you like to eat a lot of different items, like I do, you can't go wrong. They have a big salad bar and always fried chicken and couple soups and other meat, veggies and breads. I would be back.

Because I ate off of my son's salad plate I was told I would be responsible for the $6.99 salad bar fee. I am not a fraudulent person and agreed to pay the fee but wanted a box-to-go. I was treated very rudely by both the assistant manager and manager (all over four-fve bites off of a salad plate). Please... More

Shoney's was at one time a nice place, this has changed. We visited on a Friday evening and the the Buffett wasn't up to a minimum standard as far I'm concern. I tried to make contact with Corp., but have failed to follow thur with any type of reply. So that was my last visit to any Shoney's.

The restuarant was clean. My waitress Gloria was very friendly and kept on top of my coffee. Everything on the bar was nice and freah. The price was great. I will go back. The layout of the restuarant was nice. Had a good turn out for a Wednesday night.

Tables was dirty, the vinyl booth chairs and carpet are filthy! The young staff was walking and hanging around talking about what happen at the club last night, very unprofessional and nonchalant about customers, small limited menu
