Took my family here for just a quick meal on Christmas Eve.. I'm from the north personally and am more used to something like Shoneys but called Pondarosa & Big Boy.. Thought Shoneys would win before stopping in here.. Great service, very sweet with southern hospitality. But the food was not so great... The vegetable bar looked a little dry,... More

The food at this Shoney's is EXCELLENT. The staff and management, especially the manager Roger are friendly and very accomodating. I particularly loved the cabbage soup and Roger went out of his way to speak to me about it. The restaurant is clean, staff accomodating and the food flavorful. An excellent choice for any meal.

Shoneys has always proven to be a good place for us to eat on our kick the bucket travels. We had eaten at this Shoneys a couple of days. On the third stop we ran into a bit of a problem with my meal (My wifes was excellent as always). I contacted the manager after the fact. She told me... More
