The bacon was crispy not greasy and flimsy, the sausage wasn't slimy and the fresh fruit was cold and ripe! The... More

It was Mother's Day and we were traveling through Florence on our way home from the beach. All the restaurants were packed but Shoneys looked quiet. Not expecting much we opted to give it a try. The staff was fabulous and the food was hot and tasty. What a pleasant surprise!

This place is located just off Rt 95 exit 164 in SC. Buffet is fresh and clean. My wife ordered salmon on Caesar salad... Fresh salad.. Salmon a bit over cooked. Oddly the salad had mozzarella cheese instead of parmesan. Service was very good. Price is reasonable.

Very convenient spot just off I-95, very clean and friendly location. You MUST ask for Boo Boo as your waitress! She is the epitome of Southern Hospitality, she welcomed us as if we were dining in her home, very knowledgable of the menu and has personality for days! Food was hot, prompt, delicious, and a great deal. Will comeback anytime... More

There were four of us for lunch. We all chose the lunch buffet. Great buffet for the price. The highlight of this restaurant is a waitress named Boo. She was super friendly, happy, professional and attentive. I would go there again if in the area.

The service was nice so I am having trouble giving it 1 star, but it was the worst meal I have had in years. It was an inexpensive breakfast buffet but everything had an awful flavor that reminded me dog food. Low quality food. I think most of the food must be canned. From the buffet the only thing I...

I have been eating here for the past few years as it is a regular stop on the way down south. I can only comment on the dinner buffet as it is the only thing I order. The selection varies and sometimes my favorites are absent. (collard greens, ribs) The fried chicken is always good. Tonight the had fried fish... More

The Turkey club at Shoney's is great for a meal. Hot french fries compliment ihe sandwich. The sandwich can be heated or be cold as you want. I like the meat heated along with the taosted bread. The price is reasonable and the service is great.
