I stopped for breakfast at this southern institution that has closed all locations near my Atlanta home. This USED TO BE a really top notch buffet, but now I know apparently why all of the Shoney's near me have gone out of business. The basics were still there, and really can't be screwed up -- scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage etc.... More

Stopped on way home for lunch. Heavy construction outside and not real busy. Staff was very friendly and food was mediocre. Ordered fish sandwich that was very crunchy and appeared to be fried in old grease. Overall about average on other dishes.

Had the breakfast bar and we looked forward to a large selection. The food was hot and the eggs were nicely done. Enjoyed the fruit and the French toast. The restaurant was clean and the rest rooms were also clean. Offered us a senior discount without asking. Staff was nice and service was good.

Hadn't been to a Shoney's in forever. I think my son enjoyed it more than I did. He was intrigued by the buffet. If I go back again, it would be for him. Good for families. Right off the interstate, makes it good for travelers off of 81 or locals.

Got the buffet and EVERYTHING was old. Due to lack of business and food costs they left everything out for a long time and did not bother to stir or refresh anything. Waitress was very nice. Even though there were very few people in the place (Two Tables with people) and the manager was walking around she never asked anyone... More

NEVER AGAIN. we had just moved to Troutville and stopped here for lunch. the food was horrible, everything on the buffet was either reheated several times during the week, mushy and just awful. we have been to a Shoney's before, years ago and we were so shocked and disappointed how bad this particular restaurant was.

Traveling thru the Blue Ridge Parkway and stopped for gas and food. The restaurant is old with dated decor, but the staff was super kind and the food was ok. We had the buffet. There wasn't a whole lot to choose from but there was enough. The Friendly staff was probably the high point though.

We chose Shoney's because it was within walking distance of our room. We had the soup and salad bar option. It satisfied our hunger with a tasty variety of choices.

Nice server, cruddy bathrooms, mediocre high sodium food...I hadn't eaten in a Shoneys for years...this certainly isn't the quality I remember. Bugs in the light fixture above our table. This place needs a scrubbing and a makeover. Disappointed.

My grandkids love to go to Shoney's to eat, they especially love it for their birthday. They get a free Brownie Ice Cream dessert for their b-day, and the wait staff are really nice and helpful. Entrée arrive in a timely matter and the food is good. The breakfast and dinner bar are also good, if you want all you... More
