The salad bar at Shoney's Maryville is always top of the line. Saturday night the atmosphere was charged positively with our young server whose name is Chelsie.. What a great sense of humor and aims to provide pleasant service. Almost like having entertainment with your meal. Our group was tickled pink to enjoy our meal at Shoney's. Thanks Chelsie.

Stopped in around 930 AM and had the breakfast buffet. Food was hot and fresh. Very good. Service good too. Moderately busy but no waiting. Another good Shoney's location.

I had not been to a Shoney's for a long time as the Shoney's in my area of Florida had closed down years ago. But upon visiting Maryville, TN, I discovered a Shoneys along Route 321 just outside of Maryville. I had forgotten how good their breakfast buffet was. Good variety, and great value for the cost.

I had the 'fish n chips' which was floating in grease w/very underseasoned onion rings and my spouse had the buffet. It was very crowded. From what I could tell from her buffet plates, the food looked, smelled ordinary and tasted the same. I wouldn't make a return trip. I guess I'm a pretty picky eater. If I'm going to... More

Two at for lunch at this location. Typical buffet food. Not bad but not special. The bill for two people with a reasonable tip was nearly $30. I expect a lot more for $30.

Shoney's is one of the older chain restaurants in the country and just about everyone has eaten at one at some point in their lives. It had been quite awhile since we had eaten at Shoney's, but decided to revisit after moving to this city recently. Wow, have times changed from the days of Big Boy Burgers and their Fudge... More

It's a buffet.. Not much to say. They sat us all the way in the back away from everybody... I don't think they get much diversity there. Food was okay.

We went to Shoneys for buffet at dinner time. Our waitress was not too efficient. She didn't know the answers. We ordered a hot fudge cake saying we were gonna split it. Another waitress came back and asked if we both wanted one, we said one cake 2 spoons. They cut our fudge cake in two pieces. I was only... More

I visited this location for dessert only. It took more time than acceptable to be recognized and seated; then it took an even longer time for the server to come to the booth. When my dessert arrived, the ice cream between the cake layers was very melted causing the cake layers to slide apart and lay in the soupy ice... More

This is my husbands favorite restaurant. With the great choices you can't go wrong to order off the menu or eating from the buffet. The service is great and the food is fresh.
