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

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...

Shoney's delivers Shoney's at its locations. You pretty much know what is available and what you're gonna get. Nothing outstanding, but nothing really terrible either. The food was Shoney's, quick and generously portioned, and tasty for the style and price. Service was prompt and courteous and comfortable. We go because our 90 yr old mother likes it - and rightly... More

The table and floors were pretty dirty. Felt like we were intruding due to shifts changing soon. The buffet had a lot to be desired.

I stopped for lunch in this restaurant, and asked for water for my service dog (19 yr old Pomeranian, 10 lbs shaved, very well trained), the waitress told me I could not have my service do drink water there, the manager followed her with the same answer. I reminded them of the ADA act of 1990, that states no business... More
