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.

Since Shoney's has been around a long time, we usually pass it up for other places, but recently we decided to try it again. We were pleasantly surprised to find a good salad bar and some of the best catfish we had for a long time. It seems like they have made improvements over time and we plan to go... More

The buffet was well stocked with meats, veggies and salad items. We were seated promptly. The hostess and server were friendly. The food was good and there was a selection to choose from. Our server kept our glasses full. Restrooms average.
