We ate a late dinner on a Saturday evening. We were tired after a long day in Blacksburg so we walked over to Shoney's from our hotel. Our waitress was not attentive at all. It wasn't very busy and it took 20 minutes to get our food. We only ordered a patty melt. My baked potato was over cooked on... More

I took a group of 5 people here while working in Dublin. Most food was mass produced and fried. The buffet has lot's of choices, but nothing spectacular. Desserts looked great, but were disappointing overall. If you're indifferent about the quality of food and want unlimited amounts then eat here. Fatz is a better choice for good food.

The spare ribs were really outstanding. The service was very prompt and affable and... More

I went here to meet some family while we were traveling on vacation. I ate the buffet. The selections were decent. The choices were very good for meats and vegetables. (I don't eat out a lot at buffets) I got enough to satisfy me while traveling. I only complain about the dessert choices because they seemed few. If there was... More

This restaurant was right next to our hotel but just that it was a Shoney's was my reason for going there. I worked at a Shoney's years ago and haven't lived near one for about 20 years. My 12 year old grandson & I had the dinner buffet & we both enjoyed it. There was a wide variety of food... More

I always have the buffet when we are in Dublin, but this time I went for the all AMERICAN BURGER. This had to be the juiciest , cooked to perfection hamburger. You must try it just once.

We stopped for lunch and had the buffet. It was well stocked and fresh. The server was very attentive. This is the best Shoney's we have been to.

Very attentive server, Kayla was very pleasant and kept my coffee cup full without being asked. I ordered off the menu, had the patty melt, beef with swiss cheese and onions. Very tasty. Manager Jeremy was very nice also.

Thank Ralph L
