We had not eaten in one of these places for years, so it was nice to try some of the foods that they are known for. All southern or southern inspired comfort food, with good prices.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch and we both had their buffet. We were extremely disappointed. We had not been to a Shoney’s for a while and it appears that the quality of their food has really gone down on the luncheon buffet. The macaroni had a watery low quality cheese sauce. The mashed potatoes were runny. The fried fish was disgusting as it was saturated in oil and was also way undercooked. The soup tasted low quality. The sausage was bland. We will not be returning to Shoney's for lunch. Old Country Buffet serves higher quality and better food.

While staying in Manning, SC for almost a week, we ate at Shoney's Restaurant every day. My husband loves the food, atmosphere, and servers. We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner there on different days during our stay. Since we returned each day, we got preferential seating along with the outstanding service...regardless of the server. They know how to show that "Southern hospitality"; that's so uncommon where we're from.

Very nice variety of meat and fish and salads. Also loved the location which was situated immediately next to a cotton field which was full of beautiful cotton balls!

Stopped in the other day and had the buffet, salad bar was ok, not much to pick from on the buffet. The collard greens were the worst I have ever eaten, whoever cooked them has no idea how to prepare them. I can see why some people say they hate them especially if you eat the ones they had .I'm local and know how ther are supposed to taste.
