The food and service was OUTSTANDING!!!! Not only did our server check with us several times while we were dining, she also let us know she was going on break and introduced her stand in. The buffet was VERY good, with something for everyone.

Always like stopping here for the breakfast buffet. Many choices and very reasonable. It probably isn't a healthy choice but who cares!

We went to this Shoney's on the way home from the Smokies! We decided on the salad bar after looking it over. We got there in time for the lunch price. They have military and senior discounts. They post on their outside sign the specials on the bar. Today's specials were BBQ sandwiches, hamburgers, and hot dogs. It was great... More

Clean restaurant with a good size buffet that costs just slightly more than ordering off the menu. Reasonable service. Appeared to had a good number of business customers eating alone so don't use that excuse to not enjoy a sit down restaurant.
