The breakfast buffet is my favorite but every time I have eaten at the buffet it's been very good. Not all of their other dishes have been the best when I ordered off the menu but it also was not the worst

Been here 3 times recently. Once they didn't have onion rings. Another time they ran out of items to make a Philly sandwich. Last time they left us waiting for a table until we just left.

Restaurant is chain but has a family feel Daily buffet plus a fair selection. Food good but as with good food it takes time. Staff friendly and eager to assist. I personally use it as my local favorite. Prices reasonable and portions good.

This is a good Shoney's. They have a really good salad and breakfast bar. I ate here on Thanksgiving once and their Thanksgiving buffet was out of this world.

I've been there twice this month and both times my food was nearly burnt. I got the patty melt. It's a hamburger with cheese and onions on a slight buttered and toasted Texas toast bun. Both times the Texas toast was hard as a rock and the burger was very tough. Maybe next time it'll be better. Very friendly staff... More

Not good food. Slow and dirty. Greasy and sticky. .Mashed Potatos are instant,gravy is powdered. POOR example of food. And expensive for what it is. They charge prices that are normally charged for real fresh prepared food. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY HERE. There are other good places to eat in this small southern town.

Visited this Shoney's for dinner. My wife ordered a chicken croissant sandwich which was OK except for too much dressing. I tried the buffet. The meat loaf was very good, the chicken was good, the soap was good, as a matter of fact everything I tied was good. Service was very good.

Restaurant is clean, newly remodeled. Buffet can be hit or miss..Chicken pretty much always good..vegetables are frequently overcooked, sometimes seasoned, sometimes not. This Shoneys offers 4.99 senior breakfast bar on Tuesdays and all day on Thursdays..Well worth the visit if a senior.

For Shoney's, I have to only give this restaurant an average rating. The buffet looked okay but not really inviting. My Sliders were very good and I asked to have a Caesar Salad to take back to the hotel. Looks pretty good. I think a little more energy and friendliness among the staff would be welcomed.
