We have enjoyed Shoneys on many occasions, but this one in Dublin would rank low on the list on this morning when we stopped for the breakfast buffet...First let me just say that the people were friendly and provided good service...the problem was the lack of buffet choices and we found dirty plates, bowels and even the spoons (and there...

The wait staff was awesome. We went on Mother's Day but they were very pleasant even though it was very busy. The food was just blah. Nothing super special and not a lot of flavor except for the biscuits.

We had driven from Destin, FL that day and decided to overnight at Hampton Inn, Dublin, VA As Shoney's was close and rated as good we decided to eat there. We found the staff friendly and helpful. The food was good both in quality and quantity. The place was surprisingly busy for a Tues. night. We were both very pleased... More

Just ate here this past Mo. & Tu. while traveling to & from Va. Both times the food & service was very good. Note have also stopped there on past trips & that's the reason we tried it again. Will be back on our next trip. Would highly recommend it as a great food stop traveling I 81.

Made reservations for party room 3 months in advance and had to wait almost 45 minutes for room to be ready. No concessions given as a thank you for your patience. Food was very good. typical southern buffet. Service was very attentive but not overbearing. Would consider going back.

The buffet is very good in Virginia. They make fried chicken the best. Their mac and cheese is the only one I will eat. The Salad is fresh with a variety of lettuce.

We stopped at the Shoneys in Dublin Virginia on our way to eastern Kentucky. This was a very nice place. You could tell it was a newer place. Everything looked new. Everyone was very friendly and cordial. From the host that seated us to server right down to the fellow that cashed us out. Very very friendly place. The food... More

The Shoney"s chain has become old and tired. Not a lot of healthy food to offer. This one could use a good cleaning. Service was ok but the food was poor. If you somehow end up lost in Dublin Va. then you have few choices for eating. Place is here for one purpose and that is to catch the traffic... More

We stopped here while traveling. Some in our party chose the buffet and were ok with what was available and felt it was average. Others chose not to have the buffet which was a mistake because ordering from the menu was extremely slow. Also, they offered a navy bean soup. The waitress was specifically asked if these were tan or... More
