“Shoney's-Always a place you can count on”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Stopped here on 7/24 traveling from New Bern to Greenville, Sc & found a clean well managed and delightful restaurant to have dinner in.
While we did not have the buffet, the choices were fresh, hot and constantly being up-dated as the endless stream of customers came into the restaurant.
My wife had the salad bar while I ordered the fish sandwich which came with a house salad. I have to sly the house salad was a nice as the salad my wife put together @ the salad bar.
Thumbs up to this location for a job well done!!!!!!

“Wifey not happy - that's a problem!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

The wife was irritated by this place. First they didn't have the chicken pot pie that appeared on the menu. The reason given was that the menu was a generic Shoney's menu and that "not all Shoney's serve that item." This is a ridiculous business practice. It was the only item on the menu the wife was interested in. I got a steak with rice pilaf and was ok with it, but the wife ordered spaghetti and asked me to taste it. It tasted different than any spaghetti I ever tasted due to the sauce, which reminded me of chili sauce. We indicated that the spaghetti was not right and the waitress replied that they make their own Shoney's spaghetti sauce. Despite our "thumbs down" on the entree, they did not offer anything at checkout to offset our disappointment in their spaghetti. We won't be back to this chain.
