This is an all you can eat southern home cooed restaurant. There is a wide variety of foods from salads to vegetables to meats. The fried chicken is one of the best in this part of the country. It si probably one of the only places in the world where you can a piece of chicken called the pulley bone.... More

We are here basically weekly ...food is always good but we always get takeout..we would eat in but we just don't like the seating arrangements eating in...cafeteria or lunchroom seating should be updated I think ...maybe some people like it but it's just not for us..not complaining about Shealy's at all....just the seating arrangements.

There is a good reason that Shealy’s is on everybody’s short list of great BBQ restaurants in the Midlands region. Shealy’s is, quite simply, just about as good as it gets. The all-you-care-to-eat food is wonderfully tasty, the service is excellent, the restaurant is large and spacious and clean and loaded with personality, and the prices are very reasonable. What’s...

We brought our crew of 7 here on a Friday night – during high school football season, but still the restaurant was moderately busy. In the summer, the line is outside the door and you wind your way in to the payment window first. But since we have first come here in 1978, before you get to the window, there... More

Shealy's is known for its barbeque, but their vegetables are pretty good too. I love their Brunswick stew and the staff is really nice.

If you are looking for a hearty Southern Saturday breakfast where the staff knows your name, this is the place. A true breakfast buffet filled with real county food. Grits, hashbrown casserole, eggs, and yes they will cook them your way if you ask, waffles topped with fruit, biscuits, gravy, fresh fruit, thick cut bacon, country ham, lots of choices... More

Riding up on the motorcycle from Kennesaw, Ga one would think it a little odd to make a 225 mile trip just to eat...unless you were heading to Shealy's BBQ!!! Just the green beans alone are worth the trip! Set up as an all you can eat buffet, the number of daily customers insures that the food is always fresh... More

We make it a point to eat at Shealy's on every trip to SC. If you like BBQ and country cooking, this is your place. The food is excellent, the service very good, and employees always welcoming and cheerful. They offer both mustard based BBQ and vinegar based BBQ, plus a variety of other meats (depending on the day), vegetables,... More

We ate here today....4th of July! The line was long but moved quickly. The food was so good, not just the BBQ, but also the vegetables! There were varied desserts but we opted for the soft serve ice cream because we were so full! This is a buffet style restaurant.
