Prices are reasonable. Wait staff are "more than happy" to accommodate you in any way, and the brunch bar at 2:00 PM when we ate Saturday, was very warm. Clean place and friendly staff.

The breakfast buffet is pretty good, but anything after breakfast becomes a little sketch as to taste and quality.

One of the best,inexpensive buffet breakfast I have eaten.Friendly staff who is very accommodating. The corned beef hash was delicious and was not salty.

I haven't seen or visit a Shoney in a very long time, this was a treat! We had breakfast here at least two mornings....the staff was great! Wait staff Candi was a doll, head out and visit. Tell her Giddy Terri suggested the breakfast bar and her to be your waitress.

Greeted for breakfast by a welcoming engaging gentleman. Then Charlotte appeared with a warm wonderful smile. There was an extensive buffet of breakfast items as well as salad. The food overall was mediocre and not hot...Charlotte's warm smile and attentive service made up for all of that....this would be a spot to which this writer would return.

Arrived a bit after 2 p.m. on a Saturday. Greeted by a smiling hostess name Shela who seated me right away. I didn't know on weekends they convert from breakfast to dinner at 2 p.m. actually they leave breakfast up until 2 and then between two and five they have just the basics bread fried chicken green beans mashed potatoes...

My wife raved about the buffet, but I thought it was only OK and a little overpriced at $9.99 with no drink included. Our server was very efficient and friendly.
