Visited for the lunch buffet, but was able to get some dinner items as well due to perfect timing. I would like to commend this Shoney's, for its cleanliness and very friendly staff. Any questions I had about the buffet were answered on the spot and the lady attending the buffet kept everything very clean. The food was perfect, from... More

We stayed at the hotel next door, and as usual appreciated the friendly Shoneys service. The food is simple, plentiful, and tasty and the salad bar is a nice option. Sweet ice tea is the best.

We went there for supper one night after our work at church. The waitresses were just overworked and there wasn't enough of them. It wasn't that they didn't know we were coming. We had made these plans with them well in advance and we booked two rooms. When we got there they told us they had overbooked and one room... More

The people were friendly, maybe a little bit more personal information than I needed to know. Went on Prime rib night which was excellent. Ran out of rolls, had to wait. Could do without all of the clutter in the restaurant. Hanging (dead) plants overhead. Outside was done up very nice and clean.

I have been eating at Shoney's for 40 years, this store has a real good breakfast. The best breakfast I've had in the north, these last two weeks of traveling. This is what Shoney's was years ago, a good breakfast and a good salad bar. The to order food never was anything special, it is ok.

Waited about 7 or 8 minutes to get seated and when we finally were seated we never were waited on after sitting there for about 15 minutes. Waitresses looked at us but that was about it. On our way out we said something to the hostess but she couldn't care less

We had dinner and it was very good. Salad bar was well stocked but I like fresh lettuce rather than bagged lettuce as they served. Variety was good though.

The wait staff is very friendly. The restaurant is clean and well maintained. The service is quick and prices are fair. The buffet is excellent in the morning as is the coffee. Whats worth mentioning, this particular location catered to several large groups simultaneously on numerous nights after flooding effected the region and they were on top of their game... More
