Nothing different here. Friendly service, acceptable food. The salad bar was well stocked and very fresh. I'd return if in need of an affordable meal in the area.

My wife and I went here for supper and we also should have turned around and walked out. This is one of the worst Stoney's I have ever been too. It's very dated dirty and not well kept up. The food is very disappointing and just warm not hot.

This was a nice place for breakfast on our way to Dollywood. The food was very good. Large selection of food on the buffet bar for breakfast. Service was excellent. The price was reasonable. The restaurant was fairly clean.

This was a $10. buffet. The best items were the cabbage/hamburger soup & cornbread coated fried fish. Everything else was over spiced, & I love spice, and way over cooked. BBQ ribs, battered fried fish (greasy) & fried shrimp..all over cooked. Beef tips were chewy. Fried chicken way over spiced & greasy. Maybe the grease wasn't hot enough or everything... More

I just had lunch at Shoney's in Sevierville TN. We used to go there offend. It was so bad. The salad was limp and browning. the chicken was so tough my mother couldn't even cut it. Such a shame My husband said he will never eat at Shoney's again.

We had lunch and all ate off the bar. Service was nice but the food was horrible! Food wasn't hot just slightly warm. Nothing good to say about any of the food.

Loved this place since I was a little girl traveling with my grandparents. We always looked for a Shoney's for our family to eat as we traveled anywhere on the road. Hospitality was pleasant, patient, friendly, and a smile.

Should've known the minute we walked in to turn around and leave. The hostess was very unfriendly. The restaurant looked shabby, the cooler glass behind that server station was dirty...then I ordered the salad bar for $6.99...the iceberg lettuce was mostly white with some yellow thrown in...the spring mix was only 1/4 full...the tomatoes were shriveled and the croutons were...
