Shoney's is great family style dining. The food is what we call "comfort" food. Good clean homestyle menu as well as great full selection salad, soup and hot bar...would highly recommend.

My husband and I ate at Shoney's this morning and our overall experience was that the service was great, the food was great, but the ladies bathroom was disgusting. It looked like it had not been cleaned in months. Everything was absolutely filthy! What a sad end to a pleasant beginning!
