“Don't!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Around dinnertime, this restaurant was still serving breakfast and the food that was out looked like it had been out all day.

Very few customers despite an excellent location. The word must be out--but it wouldn't have to be. It doesn't take long to figure out that this is not the place to eat in Elizabethtown.

“Try it at breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We have been to several Shoneys in a 3 state area,and this is one of the best.We only go for breakfast though.And we do like the breakfast buffet. They now cook eggs to order, so you dont have to settle for scrambled.And the parking lot of this Shoneys is always full on weekend mornings.

“Food is lousy and menu stinks”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Shoney's is just god awful. They have a very limited menu of food that is not prepared very well. The service is what you would expect at a truck stop. Do not eat here.

“If you want a great Breakfast.....there is probably somewhere down the street you would like more.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

Had the breakfast buffet.....downright blah. Greasy, foul, and dirty.
The place is old and stanky.....and the bathrooms are worse.
It's cheap, but not worth the risk. Felt as though I was at risk to slip on a rogue piece of stale bacon each time I walked through.
The waitress was very nice, and had an eager nature....but it wasn't enough to salvage a poor experience.

“Caesar salad?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I ordered the caesar salad. What I received had Italian dressing instead of Caesar dressing. Also the salmon I added to it was overcooked and dry. The lettuce itself was not cut so one could eat it. There was a HUGE piece in the bottom. I thought it was overpriced at 8 bucks!
