Buffet for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

It wasn't great, but it was edible. We stopped for lunch and they still had breakfast items on the buffet on one side. The salad bar was nice and had lots of items to choose from.

We checked in to our hotel a little later than expected, and were hungry. So, we discovered Shoney's very near by, and decided to check it out. The waitstaff was very friendly and courteous. We were able to get a good meal late at night, and didn't have to travel miles away to another town to find something open that... More

I would be very careful. Looks can be decieving.place is clean & we were greeted by friendly servers however I received RAW chicken. The Manager charged me for chicken, disregarded my concern & ignored my request for corporate number. Maybe another location would be safe but I would Skip this one.

The restaurant was clean and the staff pleasant. Some of the food was a bit over cooked on the smorgasbord.

Food was ok, price was ok kind of dirty inside. It would have been better if the guy beside us was not hacking and clearing his throat every 30 seconds..I really couldn't eat after about 10 min of it :(

I had to request that the table be cleaned, then I had to ask for napkins to dry the table.The utensils had food debris left on them, The plates were dirty and wet. I began to imagine what the kitchen was like, being that it is out... More

Family of 4 went for dinner. The server seemed to be relatively new and had a very difficult time. We ordered a fish sandwich...came on a bun with NOTHING else....had to ask for lettuce, tomato, tartar sauce....and this took forever to get there. My daughter ordered kids spaghetti. I asked what is the sauce and was told, plain tomato....it came... More

Everything from the food to the restrooms were disgusting. We got the buffet and everything was rubbery, hard, or cold...etc (or a combination of 2 out more). Service was friendly and fast, but just a terrible place to eat
