Wanted a place to just get a quick bite to eat, but not McDonalds or such. Has a decent buffet - but fried foods and lots of salty stuff. Great for dessert though.

It has been years since I've been to a Shoney's and was pleasantly surprised with how well this establishment tended to their business. Wait staff was prompt, friendly and very engaging during our mid-afternoon meal. Buffet was well stocked with fresh, hot food with awesome salad and desert bars. Prices were right in line for a normal "Chain" style restaurant.

The good thing about Shoneys is that you are always greeted with a smile, the environment is comfortable, the food and service reliably good. This one failed in every department; we should have taken note of the review which read "Drive on."

This was our first time to Shoney's, we enjoyed it, plenty of food to choose from on offer, it was nice to be able to try things we have never had before, the place was clean and the staff very friendly, good value for money, would eat there again

We went there for the buffet. There was hardly anything on it, and what was there had been there for a while. There was no bread of any kind. I asked if they were going to put out any bread and they said they didn't put bread on their buffets. The service was awful too. They never brought us a... More

After driving for a long time without seeing a restaurant we stopped at Shoney's in Natchez. It was really well worth the stop and the long wait for a meal. The hamburger was just like those we remembered from our youth and the service was outstanding even though it was mid afternoon, when normal one does not get good service.... More
