Your typical Shoney's with buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner available. Attentive and kind wait staff. Beverage glass was never empty. I have visited this location twice and would go back again when in the area. Very convenient to the airport so if you would like a filling, decently priced meal before you fly...stop by this Shoney's.

This was a pretty nice Shoney's. I pretty much stopped going to them because they tend to be a bit schuzzy. I came in shortly before closing and the salad bar was already closed. I asked for a big salad and they were very kind to prepare a really nice salad plate just before closing. Everything was very fresh and... More

This place is the way all you eat should be, so good in fact that I am often tempted to stray into the mac and cheese and other fat, not free, filled foods. They do it right and the price is right.

Employees were nice and food was fine. Of course I always go for the buffet at Shoney's. They keep it stocked at all times.

Did the breakfast buffet near downtown Knoxville and it was so good. The food was hot and the items were keptt stocked when running low. All kind of choices plus the salad bar was ready to be used if you wanted something from it. Shoney's usually has a great buffet breakfast anywhere you can find one.

My dad loved Shoney's and would take us to the airport motor mile when we were in the area. I learned to love their popcorn shrimp and I saw my little brother eat 2 HUGE hot fudge cakes there. I take my kids there and its a decent place to eat. You have a better selection at breakfast so that's... More
