I asked the hostess, Mykayla, if there was anything gluten free on the menu and she said no. I then asked another woman, blonde ponytail, up front if there was anything gluten free and she said no. The preposterous thing is, there most definitely are...More

It's Shoney's. Buffet was average, food the same. You get what you paid for. Clean but dated. and the service was OK.

You just can't go wrong with Shoney's breakfast bar. They have a great variety of items with eggs and bacon to start you off.

Food was good but not a big buffet to have lots of choices. Staff very sweet. The booth we sat in had the seat all ripped up & it was not the only 1. This place needs a face lift.
