Won't Be on One of Our Regular Stops

I am only rating the breakfast buffet. We went on a Saturday morn about 10:30AM, and we love breakfast foods, so tried this out. It was very crowded, several large groups, and the buffet had a steady and constant line. We found the food to be similar to what you'd get at a Comfort Suites free... read more

My staff and I stop here often when we do our branch visits in Maryville, the food is always good and the service is also good and consistent. We will be stopping again..

I stop by Shoney's here on the weekends when I teach classes for breakfast, it's consistent and the staff is decent. Pretty good for a breakfast buffet.

No way to make this anything other than a Shoney's. Ordered off the menu, not the buffet. Food came out a bit slow but prepared properly. Hot was hot and cold was cold. Attentive wait staff but seemed over worked. Not too many smiles were voluntarily cast.

My husband and I stopped in at the Maryville Shoney's on an unplanned visit on a Friday late afternoon. My husband chose the buffet and I chose to order a Slim Jim with onion rings from the menu. My hisband said the catfish was very good. My Slim Jim was good but the bottom of the sandwich got soggy and... More
