“Easter Buffet”
Review of Shoney's

Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

We decided to stop at Shoney's for their advertised Easter buffet, and were happy we did. They had a great variety (ham, turkey, meatloaf, coconut shrimp, beef tips, etc) plus a number of sides, full salad bar, and a few dessert. The staff replenished things very well, everyone was friendly, and our waitress Vicki was very attentive. Great job! Now to try both their seafood buffet and the new(er) fish entrees they advertise on the bon-buffet menu.

We had the lunch buffet. The food was good, but avoid the meatloaf. It had a chemical taste to it. The rest of the buffet was good..

I had not eaten at Shoney's for at least 15 years. As one other reviewer stated, it was not how we remembered Shoney's to be. We went for dinner; the french fries was undercooked and inedible; the salad bar was underwhelming; the buffet bar was okay but not as good as what other restaurants offer. The bright side was the waitress was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, we will not be returning to another Shoney's after this experience.

Some of the fried chicken and fish was a bit tough. Turkey fricassee was good. I have eaten at better Shoney's.

We were in town for the Hwy 127 Yard Sale & spotted the Shoney's....since they are now hard to find we pulled in. MISTAKE...our waitress informed us the buffet had catfish & chicken. The catfish was awful...was like a processed meat, the vegetables so-so & the macaroni salad & cole slaw tasted like it had been on the buffet for days. A very bad start to our trip. Definitely not the Shoney's we remember.
