It has been a while since I ate at any Shoney's and last time I did was disappointed. Last week I decided to try this one for lunch. It was an excellent choice. I just had the soup and salad bar. The lettuce was fresh, crisp and cold. The Italian dressing was delicious. There were all kinds of things to... More

Stopped for lunch while driving through. Decided to order off the menu instead of eating the buffet. The Caesar salad with chicken was really well executed- romaine was very green and fresh, topped with grated Parmesan and crunchy croutons, good dressing on the side, chicken hot and moist and generous portion. The waitress made sure our ice tea glasses were... More

We originally HAD reservations at Northshore Brasserie in Knoxville. After sitting there for 20 minutes waiting to be greeted we ended up leaving. What a disaster. So we went to our hometown replacement. They actually had a decent Thanksgiving buffet. Turkey was moist ham was flavorful and the pumpkin pie was great.

This Shoney's has a breakfast buffet that continues to 2 p.m.. Lunch buffet was very good. All the food that should be hot was. Mashed potatoes were exceptional. Very good selection in salad bar. Fish was excellent. Desert selection was a little disappointing. Great meal.

Stopped in there this morning for breakfast with my husband and some members of my extended family. The buffet was full, hot and tasty! The sausage is some of the best I've eaten and so was the hashbrown casserole. The fruit was fresh and just right.

Depending on which Shoney's you go to will depend on what the quality is like, the one in Lenoir City is pretty consistent and good, it is hard sometimes to get wait staff attention, there are a few locals that go here everyday and I think one of the waitresses has a crush on the ol guy!

If you are hungry on a weekend night, go to Shoney's. Breakfast is at 10pm. Who doesn't like breakfast? Who doesn't like bacon? It's so good. This restaurant is in a good location and the restaurant is mostly clean. Enjoy.

My husband and I had the breakfast buffet around 7:45 a.m on a Thursday. It was not crowded so we got a table quickly. I took a quick look at the menu but decided to join my husband and have he buffet. I didn't sample all the dishes but what we selected was good tasting (warm but not hot). I... More
