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

We got the dinner buffet (9.39 before tax) and dessert and spent 23.78. The carrots on the salad bar were funky not sure whether they weren't cooked all the way or old. I wish buffets would list what is there to choose! I almost got what I thought was tapioca pudding as it was by other puddings and luckily I... More

Had the buffet, salads were fresh, but meats were deep fried way too long; high school (?) waitress was talking with 2 girls at a booth about personal business for the whole hour we were there and they were being nasty to another girl who was doing all the work at the food bar. Bullying ? Didn't see anyone who... More

Buffet food was warm at best. Everything was way too salty. The service was good but the waitress could not overcome the bad food.

FORGET THIS PLACE...unless you want mostly bland food. We ate the senior buffet for lunch. It was clean and fresh and at the correct temperature, but most of the food was nothing special and selection lacked. However, the meatloaf and catfish were delicious. I have had breakfast here before and it was definitely better. If all Shoney's buffets are like... More

Nothing, was a better than most Shoney's. The food was all hot. Some Shoneys the food is not so hot but this place keeps all the hot food hot and the cold food cold.
