Cheap food

Most meals down the center of the menu include their food bar, so that's a plus. They take a very long time to prepare anything you order that is not at the food bar. The food at the food bar is ok..Not great. If you're looking to feed a family very cheaply and leave full, this is the place to... read more

Stopped for dinner enroute to Georgia, party of five. Two of us had burgers and soup/salad bar. Sister and mother split a strip steak dinner which was served and appeared gray in color. Burgers were ordered Pink and were cooked with no semblance. Cook must've been color-blind, I guess. Club sandwich was fine. Salad bar was decent and beef vegetable... More

Food was fresh, hot, and tasty. Lots of choices on the buffet or choose your food from a menu. Check out the specials. Service was fast and pleasant.

We used to visit Shoney's when travelling on the major highways, as it was fast, but after a recent trip to the breakfast buffet, we won't be returning until they change. The eggs taste like they have preservative and/or a lot of salt. The bacon was so tough I told the waitress and she obviously didn't get that it was... More

Stopped there today and had the bar, their brown gravy is awesome as well as the mash potatoes. Also tried the fish, shrimp, and meatloaf, which was very good. Ordered some fried eggs, (good) and white gravy. Waiter was very attentive and service was flawless. A solid four stars!

We met our family here to eat for breakfast. The food was average, but the service could have been a little better.

We love Shoney's buffet. Food was great, lots of variety and the staff were very friendly. One of our favourite places to eat after a long day on the bike. Excellent sweet tea !

This place to put it nicely was not very good. Food was not very good and to make things worse employees were goofing off. We had to wait five minutes to be seated because employees were goofing off. Also the resturant can not cook as I received the worse Baked spgettheti ever. This is just a place not to visit... More

We were camping at Mountain Lake Campground and decided to eat at this establishment on our way home. The breakfast bar was ok, however, some items were empty and none were refilled during our time there. Our waitress never brought silverware so I had to personally approach another waitress to hand me some. It was an ok visit. Would revisit... More
