I stop in quite frequently to get my breakfast to go. I love the assortment of items on the breakfast bar.

Good service and food. We chose to order from the menu rather than buffet. Buffet looked good. Our service was excellent and our waitress was very attentive to our needs.

Went for breakfast and they sat us in the back. Never checked on us but checked on all their friends in the same room. We waved, asked for water but never received it. Have not gone back and never will. Received a gift card for Shoney's and actually gave it away due to the service at this Shoneys.

This is a typical Shoney's, not good but not bad either. The food is both good and bad at times. I've eaten here a lot for breakfast since it's the only game in town at 6am. Will you like it....flip a coin and see.
