I read some of the reviews and I am mystified by some of the comments. We have made this Shoney's our favorite restaurant to stop at on the way to Myrtle Beach. We ate off the menu and had great food each time. The service is superior. The place is clean, and that is my biggest focus on eating anywhere.... More

While on a business trip I decided to stop in Shoney's. I did not stay. They floor was busted up. I mean very large tiles missing. Someone could very easily trip and hurt themselves. The walls looked dirty and dingy as did the floor. The hot buffet looked like it had been out all day, dried up, and there was... More

First off I am very hot natured. This restaurant was so cold we were all freezing to death. The food was cold too. When I voiced my concerns, they brought out hot food that was pretty good. The waitress was awesome and attentive.

The service was bad but the food was worse. Bland, tasteless food and to make matters worse, the staff couldn't even keep it stocked. We had to wait for most of the items. The staff seemed to be more interested in chatting than working. A horrible place to eat. We will not be back.

I've been in this place several times and the salad bar is really good. Depending on the time of day, the hot bar is average. I would think they would have a better selection like they used to have. It is a good place to sit down and be waited on because the staff is very friendly. If you want... More

In the past I had really enjoyed this spot the food was good and plentiful, sadly that has all changed. The food is still there but the quality has slipped quite a bit. The only time to go is during breakfast, it's hard to mess up breakfast food.

The waitress and hostess are always polite and helpful and the place is clean. The food quality is a totally different story. If you order the mac and cheese as a side, be prepared to eat something similar to a popular box brand of mac and cheese. The box variety tastes much better. The fried foods taste as if they...

The staff here is usually really kind. The food quality has suffered in the last few years. I miss the days when I went in as a child and the food was great.
