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

Great service every visit. Great country style food - especially the buffet. Never leave hungry or it's your own fault. Still affordable priced.

We visited on Christmas morning for the buffet. The servers were very friendly and attentive. Considering they were working on Christmas Day, I would think patrons would be more generous, or stay home. I saw a couple order breakfast, then asked that their drinks be placed in to-go cups, they got what seemed to be excellent service, as did we.... More

I do not know how hard it is to refill a coffee cup but apparently, at this Shoneys, it is a challenge. That and be prepared for an attitude with the waitresses who seem more concerned with God only knows what then to simply do what they are there to do. Granted, not a fun place to work I am... More

My husband wanted to eat out for Christmas and this Shoney's was the only place open so we stopped in. Have eaten their breakfast bar a number of times and it is OK but the regular buffet is usually not what I like to eat. It was packed because so many others were closed and we had to stand in...
