Very friendly help!

Service was quick, friendly and efficient. Food was hot and good. It's not the Ritz, but it's a clean place that serves good American style food at an inexpensive price.

Shoney's isn't one of the standbys that has an excellent salad bar that offers a wide variety of food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Excellent burgers and the famous slim Jim sandwich.

I am in town working and have not had Shoneys in some years- so I had to stop in... I am also on an adkins diet so steak and eggs for me. The steak (cheaper cut) was better then waffle houses steak but that is really not saying much. Staff was nice- but this place is dated badly.

The other day spent the night in Franklin TN and next to the motel was Shoney's. I have not been to a Shoney's for many years but remembered it was buffet style with many choices on the menu . So my wife and I were hungry after driving all day and figured have that buffet. The place was clean inside... More

Food is average at best. Service was friendly and tried hard but restaurant had a generally sloppy appearance.

The 'country fried steak' was thin and the mashed potatoes were cold. Server was smarmy. This was about 7:30 to 8 PM on a Thursday night. If ever in Franklin gain, I'll look for someplace else.

Starting coming here on Saturday's...because of the service of most everyone, but especially Jennifer, now we come every Saturday and Sunday. Great food and clean establishment as well.

This isn't one of my favorite places to eat, but Shoney's does provide a variety of food and decent service. The prices are reasonable, so there is no complaint.

Probably for a reason. Service was OK. Breakfast buffet looked OK. Why are salad makings already out? Sausage links and grits were needing improvement. Biscuit and gravy was fine.

This Shoney's was a short walk from my hotel- very convenient! I got the buffet and although I'm not a fan of some southern cooking, I found plenty to satisfy me. The pork chops were especially good and I always think they have good soup- and this was true here. Very reasonably priced and good quality! I would have liked... More
