The food was standard Shoney's breakfast buffet, nothing special but not at all bad. But what made this place really outstanding was the service. My wife and I visited during our evacuation from the South Carolina coast during Hurricane Matthew, and we found that Santee...More

Worst ever. Poor management...food sits on the bar too long. Needs an overhaul!!! It used to be nice 6 years or so ago. Wait staff comes and goes...never there long enough to learn
