Waited about 7 or 8 minutes to get seated and when we finally were seated we never were waited on after sitting there for about 15 minutes. Waitresses looked at us but that was about it. On our way out we said something to the hostess but she couldn't care less

We had dinner and it was very good. Salad bar was well stocked but I like fresh lettuce rather than bagged lettuce as they served. Variety was good though.

The wait staff is very friendly. The restaurant is clean and well maintained. The service is quick and prices are fair. The buffet is excellent in the morning as is the coffee. Whats worth mentioning, this particular location catered to several large groups simultaneously on numerous nights after flooding effected the region and they were on top of their game... More

The best breakfast sausage anywhere. It is always a place we look for. The variety is unmatched. I would definitely recommend this place.

We decided to try the Summersville Shoneys, not expecting a lot out of it. We were pleasantly surprised. The buffet was fresh and hit, food well prepared and tasty. The restaurant was kept tidy (tables cleaned quickly and mess swept in a timely manner). Staff was attentive. Apparently, this Shoneys and another were taken over by another manager and quality...

It's the only breakfast buffet in town and have visited several times but the food is lacking these days. Our last visit, which was at 9:30am, the food was cold on both sides of the buffet and the bacon almost burnt. It would be nice if they offered a better variety, but you get what you pay for. The service... More

We had never been to a Shoney's before, but since it was just across the parking lot from our hotel we tried it out. It was pretty good, nothing special, but nothing to complain about. The prices were very good and the server was quite friendly.

Arrived at 7:45 and they had a steady flow of dinners. Most seemed to be locals who bellied up to the buffet for $12.95. Salad offering was meager, an array of hot food from pop corn shrimp to fish, beef etc. None of it was labeled so you had to guess. The young girl who waited on us was very... More

If you are a senior, looking for a place to eat in Summersville on a Thursday, this is the place to visit. Great location, lots of parking. Pleasant staff and a clean establishment. But the draw is the eat all you want buffet. All manner of southern cooking for 5.99. That even includes a desert bar. I really pigged out... More
