Our first visit to a Shoney's. It was next door to our motel for the night so very convenient. We aren't usually keen on buffets but we could also order from the menu here. After seeing the well stocked, very clean buffet for a very...More

Went there on a Friday evening and it cost $14.99 for what I thought was a poor quality buffet. $14.99 is a reasonable price for a buffet but not for this buffet. The selection was limited compared to other buffet chains. The dessert area was...More

We stayed at the hotel next door, and as usual appreciated the friendly Shoneys service. The food is simple, plentiful, and tasty and the salad bar is a nice option. Sweet ice tea is the best.

The people were friendly, maybe a little bit more personal information than I needed to know. Went on Prime rib night which was excellent. Ran out of rolls, had to wait. Could do without all of the clutter in the restaurant. Hanging (dead) plants overhead....More

I have been eating at Shoney's for 40 years, this store has a real good breakfast. The best breakfast I've had in the north, these last two weeks of traveling. This is what Shoney's was years ago, a good breakfast and a good salad bar....More
