Was here for Christmas visiting family. Stopped in before we hit the road home. The staff was incredible including John the GM. The food was amazing and was always well stocked. The restaurant was very very clean, highly recommend this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

We stopped here for dinner on the way back to PA. Despite the crowd we were seated instantly and the waitress was extremely friendly. She was willing to tell us about the seafood buffet that actually saved us money. Anything we needed she was on it right away even though she seemed busy. The food was great and reasonable but...

Okay, shoneys does serve lunch and dinner, but don't do it. Just don't. Breakfast is another story. Shoneys puts on a huge breakfast buffet daily and for a ridiculously low price, you can gorge on pancakes, French toast, crisp bacon, ham, sausage, etc. They also have a large assortment of fruit, granola, yogurt and other healthier options on the buffet...

Breakfast is awesome here. Its a buffet so they have it all. Even chicken and they alternate between waffles and pancakes. Plus they have salad and a cold bar too. It is very good for the price too. Get over there for breakfast if you can.

Food was served hot and prices were fair. Servings were plentiful. Nice salad bar. It was a nice surprise that when I ordered the whitefish, not only the salad bar came with the meal but all the items on the buffet except the meats. Perfect for me because I am not much of a meat eater. ~~~~ Buffet available. My... More

First time going here, was a little pricey and service was a little slow. Food was served hot and the place is clean. Would liked to found out more about the salad bar and prices for that. I will be going back in a few weeks to try it again.

If your in Dover make sure to stop at the Shoney's near I-77. We stopped on a Sunday and the breakfast buffet was still open at noon, they also have the salad bar open. The food is fresh and hot and the bins never empty as the staff make sure to keep the food coming. The servers are attentive and... More
