I ate here one night and liked the buffet and friendly service. There is good variety on the buffet. The food is fresh. My waiter walked around the buffet with me to help me identify items with pork, which I will not eat.

Speed in grout a quick lunch and was actually surprised to see the parking lot so empty at 1:30. I see why now.... the catfish was tough from being over cooked, as was the salmon fillet. Definitely the Motel 6 of restaurants.

Had not been to a Shoney's in years but stopped on way to airport. Lunch Buffet was decent. There were some odd things like chicken livers which was disgusting but most things were rather tasty. My friends enjoyed their omelets. Service was very friendly.
