The atmosphere here is not very welcoming. They have a buffet, it looked old and the bar was messy. We ordered burgers off the menu, good choice as they were delicious! Best value there. Server was slow. Food is cooked to order so expect a wait.

We forgot to pull some meat out of the freezer so we were in a pickle. The good lord provided the next best parking spot to being handicapped. Taco Bell was closed. Staff was friendly, food barely scratched average. But... It's shoneys, not exactly world renowned for gourmet cuisine. If you need a club sand which because you find yourself... More

First time visiting this restaurant as an adult. We had a very large party following a funeral on 1/9/16. The workers did everything to our large group feel welcomed. Although I don't eat steak the buffet comes with your own cook to order steak which was a crowd pleaser. The buffet was well stocked with items for vegans and meat... More

Prices are reasonable. Wait staff are "more than happy" to accommodate you in any way, and the brunch bar at 2:00 PM when we ate Saturday, was very warm. Clean place and friendly staff.

The breakfast buffet is pretty good, but anything after breakfast becomes a little sketch as to taste and quality.

I haven't seen or visit a Shoney in a very long time, this was a treat! We had breakfast here at least two mornings....the staff was great! Wait staff Candi was a doll, head out and visit. Tell her Giddy Terri suggested the breakfast bar and her to be your waitress.

Greeted for breakfast by a welcoming engaging gentleman. Then Charlotte appeared with a warm wonderful smile. There was an extensive buffet of breakfast items as well as salad. The food overall was mediocre and not hot...Charlotte's warm smile and attentive service made up for all of that....this would be a spot to which this writer would return.

Arrived a bit after 2 p.m. on a Saturday. Greeted by a smiling hostess name Shela who seated me right away. I didn't know on weekends they convert from breakfast to dinner at 2 p.m. actually they leave breakfast up until 2 and then between two and five they have just the basics bread fried chicken green beans mashed potatoes...
