I've eaten at Shoney's all my life and this is one of the best. It is clean and the servers are nice, friendly and courteous. The food was delicious and was changed before the dishes were empty. I was impressed.

Stopped at Shoney's for the "World Famous" Hot fudge Cake, but changed our minds when we saw the Apple Crisp. What a fantastic dessert. Hopefully it will reach "world famous" status.

EZ to get to but dated and not as clean as we prefer. 1 of our last choices in Lebanon. The buffet is not big one but it's fresh enough. Nothing bad, just nothing interesting about this Shoney's.

Its a Shoney's people. Nothing more or less. Food was okay. Price was fair for all you can eat. They had a reasonable selection of breakfast goodies (scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, french toast, bacon, sausage, some fruits and such. Nothing special but tasted OK to me. The place was clean and servers were friendly. If this is what you... More

We visited the Shoney's on Saturday night. There were not many people in the restaurant at the time we were, which was around 9:00. We only ordered the Slim JIm to share and each got a bowl of Cabbage Beef soup, which we think is the best. We had a pleasant experience with service and the food. The server was... More

We stopped at this Shoneys while traveling and it was good. We both ordered a new item on the seafood item on the menu. The portion size was perfect for lunch and the fish was cooked perfectly. Food came quickly even though there was a bus load of people.
