We had the breakfast buffet just this morning. The food was excellent. It was probably one of the best Shoney's that we have visited. Mind you...we have eaten at several with all of our travels. Had it not been for the behavior of the manager that was on duty this morning, I would have gladly... read more

the restaurant is nasty, the dishes were not washed and not to mention all the employees are on drugs. Openly a worker told a manager he wasSo the managers are aware of this occurring. Another time I see a manager standing smoking with an employee going back and forth to a car and said "damn that is good coke." Something... More

I was not excited to be stopping at a Shoney's. It appeared outdated and stuck in the 70"s. And it was. But he staff was outstanding and the service excellent. The Buffett was fresh and clean. It had something for everyone in our group. And the price was amazing for a week day lunch.

For the past 2 years several friends & I have met at Shoney's for breakfast once a week. We never need to be seated, we just go to our regular table & within a minute all of our drink orders are delivered and they are always correct. We have the same server every week & she is fantastic. Prompt, &... More

Now I'm NOT a Big Fan of Chain Restaurants, However, If Managed and Staffed Properly, They can be an enjoyable experience, especially on the road. This particular Shoney's had HOT, DECENT, Reasonably Priced Food. Very Clean, and the Service was Excellent. What sets this Shoneys apart, was the True Southern Hospitality! Manager was visible making sure of the Cleanliness of... More

Feb 1, around 9 a.m. We had the breakfast buffet, which was continuously attended, and fresh. Everything was clean. The most amazing thing happened at this restaurant, that never happened to me before. I had ordered coffee with my meal, and had used a couple of creamers. The cream wasn't working well with the coffee, but I didn't have issues... More

Every visit to Bristol we always eat the breakfast buffet at Shoney's. It is a good value for the variety of food they have on the buffet. Everything is good, hot, & fresh.
