Afterall, its all you can eat......

The buffet is always the same dishes. Week after week. Would like to see other dishes/foods up there occasionally. The staff.......for most part decent & polite. However- some of the hostess(s) could be a bit more friendly or offer a smile when they first see you waiting to be seated. Sometimes... read more

Title says is all. Went there for the breakfast bar and filled up on good food. Staff was a little slow (my opinion) on refilling the drinks.

We had the buffet it was just ok nothing great. They had a special any child under 10 was free, my kids are 5 and 6 they charged us we had to have them adjust the bill. All I can say is check your bill and don't expect anything outstanding.

We had breakfast here twice while in town. Once we tried the buffet and once we ordered off the menu. Both times we were happy with our food. Staff is friendly, food is good. Buffet is a $1 cheaper on weekdays.

Nothing fancy, reasonably priced and very friendly service! You'll get what you pay for, and maybe more because on some days the buffet is an incredible deal with different offerings each day! Casual dining at it's best.

When we are travelling in the U.S. we try to stop for our lunch or dinner break at a Shoney's Restaurant as their buffet is one of the best. It amazes me that some of them are closing and that upsets me. We are in North Ft. Myers, Florida and they closed that one a few years ago and we... More

Stopped for supper here on our way to Florida. I got a cheeseburger. It was cooked perfect. I ordered it well done. It was still juicy. I also asked for extra onion on my burger. I was surprised to see that they actually gave me a lot on onion. The French fries were good. I ordered a small coca cola.... 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
