Dinner buffet- it's Shoneys! Love the Salad Bar!

We went for dinner and had the buffet. I love their salad bar. My husband had the breakfast and he said it was good! I had Salisbury steak and mac n cheese; corn; pinto beans and it was good. It is always good at this Shoneys! The service was really good and I wish I could remember her name. :-(

This is my husbands favorite restaurant. With the great choices you can't go wrong to order off the menu or eating from the buffet. The service is great and the food is fresh.

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 breakfast, or similar hotel....

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.
