We ate there this week. We got the buffet. The chicken still had feathers on it, yuck. There was no lettuce to make a salad. I wound up eating a little meatloaf and mashed potatoes. The only thing that was good was their lemonade.

Stopped in for breakfast. All of our meals were great. Three ate from the buffet. Two of us ordered off the menu due to food allergies. All great and no problems with allergies.

We were very happy with our visit other than I would of been much happier if there were an option to get the salad bar with a price difference if you do not get the meats. I do not eat meat but was told the bar would be the same price weather I eat meat or not.

The Breakfast buffet is a good price for kids. It started with the hostess wanting to put us in the sun (no blind). We point out the booth we wanted. Then the waitress was less than friendly...if you don't like your job move on. It just seemed like a bother when we asked for anything. With the grandkids in tow... More

Food was dry and setting out for awhile. Corn on the cob looked like it was from two days ago and the instant mashed potatoes had a dry crust on top. Gravy was crusted over. Will never eat there again.

Thought Shoney's was a safe deal. Nope. Our group went for the buffet. $11.95 each and included a drink. Only meat on the buffet was fried chicken and a meat loaf. Both not good. Had a salad bar - dressings had been heavily watered down. No dessert unless you count a tray of canned sliced peaches or pineapple. Two in... More

Not great, but not bad. Food was good, though. Buffet looked like it had been sitting a while, but it was not a busy time of day. Waiter was nice, but a little over attentive.

My wife and I went looking for dinner and ended up at Shoney's. The waiter was friendly and their new burgers were good. The location could have been a little cleaner.
