“NO”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

The food bar looked like someone took a greasy rag across the top. Different foods were in different food containers. I understand that that is not always fault to the rest. but when the food looks dry on the edge of the food container, that's a problem. So you want steak and seafood.... LOL If you like bland food, this is your place to eat.

“Stay Away!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

The food was awful and the service even worse. I kid you not this was the worst place I have ever eaten at in my life! The food on the buffet was cold and/or old. Don't think you can fall back on the salad because that was pretty bad as well. You know it's bad when the kids even say the ice cream tastes horrible and don't eat it. We were there on a week night with only a few other customers there but the service was awful. Waitress never offered to refill our water, left dirty plates at our table after checking on us ONCE. There were several workers there so there was no reason for this. They were all in the back gossiping. We could hear & see them. They'd look at us and walk away. Judging from this particular Shoney's I can see why all the others have closed down. This one should have been on the closed list ages ago! I'm not normally one to leave a horrid review but this restaurant has very much earned it! The low budget chinese restaurant across the street was better and Cracker Barrel was better still and CHEAPER.

No longer have any locations near my home so eat here when staying at Magnolia Inn and always get the buffet! Great meal for the price!
