I stopped here for a quick breakfast so I could get back on the road. I had the breakfast buffet and wow, that was good. I have stopped at many Shoney's and this one is as good as any. Easy access to I-81. Good food and well maintained buffet. The food was great and plentiful. They have great coffee too.... More

To start the food was good, the service was excellent, but, when I opened my silverware the fork was dirty. It was replaced with a clean one and an apology. I was almost finished when I found a hair in my sandwich that was not the color of my own hair. I received a sincere apology and the meal was... More

Stopped by for a late lunch. Connie was great. Very helpful. Fish sandwich and baked potato and salad bar were excellent. Would stop here again

The service here was like being back in the 50's. The decor was sad and needs to be replaced. The seats were torn and dirty. The food on the bar was old and only luke warm. The tea was weak and too sweet.

This was a very poor experience. The buffet was not that well stocked. But the service was friendly. I would pass on this experience.

Another time I see a manager standing smoking with an employee going back and forth to a car and said "damn that is good coke." Something... More

I was not excited to be stopping at a Shoney's. It appeared outdated and stuck in the 70"s. And it was. But he staff was outstanding and the service excellent. The Buffett was fresh and clean. It had something for everyone in our group. And the price was amazing for a week day lunch.
