I had the buffet. A good variety of food, all seemed nice and fresh. Decent coffee. Good service - although it is a buffet !! I am from the UK so sometimes going to a buffet is a good way to try different foods in different areas without committing to ordering them in a restaurant ! Very wide variety of... More

First, the service was great. A very attentive and kind young lady Melinda did a great job for us. Second, the place was clean and well kept. Finally, the food was very good. I have told the kids about going to Shoney's almost 40 years ago and enjoying a burger, the salad bar, and a hot fudge cake ($.69 back... More

Great Shoney's. The bar is very good and always hot and fresh. They have plenty seating and lots of light. Good place for family or solo dining. Anyone can enjoy. Good coffee and good service.

Stopped for lunch when traveling as this is very close to the interstate. Was seated promptly, greeted by the server promptly, etc. My meal included the salad bar which was nicely stocked and constantly attended to by a nice gentleman. My meal arrived almost as soon as I was finished with my salad. The chicken was prepared perfectly -- thoroughly... More

Good breakfast buffet! Fresh fruit included! It opens at 6 am central time. I have only eaten breakfast there so I don't know about lunch and dinner. It has lunch and dinner buffet also but I have not tried those. We usually eat there on our way home from Pigeon Forge early in the morning.

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!

This reminds me of "several" years ago when going to Shoney's was one of the main places for going out to eat. I haven't been to another one in probably 30 years or more so all I can judge is this one. The food is fresh and the servers are really nice. I still enjoy going there if just for... More
