Arrived about 7:30 on Saturday night after we got into town. The restaurant is tired and dirty - greasy looking. We sat at a booth and then went to the buffet - WE SHOULD HAVE TURNED AROUND AND LEFT! There were there hot food items that had congealed into unidentifiable masses. There was a container of what might have been... More

Food was old and cold, service was horrendous. This was my last trip to a shoney's as the last time I was at this store years ago there was a roach running across the register counter and the employee didn't seem phased by it at all. :(

I love the food at Shoneys but it has the same old worn out look it had 20 years ago. The staff is always friendly though.

Fried food Mecca. Was disappointed in the skimpy salad bar and found the food mediocre. Too many other places to try to give this place another chance.

A clean restaurant with a very friendly staff. The buffet is always well stocked with plenty of choices. The wait staff is very attentive and makes sure you have everything you need without being at your table constantly. A good meal at a reasonable price.
