We used to patronize Shoney's years ago and they seemed to vanish with the times. When we saw this one nearby where we were staying, we jumped on the chance. We choice the buffet which as huge with many choices and at a very reasonable choice. Service was great, the place was clean, and staff kept the buffet well stocked.

It was a nice quiet buffet on Sunday evening. The price is $9.99 plus drink & taxes. The staff was friendly. The cooks kept up with the buffet by continoulsy bringing out fresh food. The restaurant is a bit outdated. I would give the buffet desserts 1 star. Choose dessert from the separate menu, its much better.

It was my husband and I's first time in New Orleans and my Aunt and Uncle were raving about this restaurant. We showed up an hour and a half before closing...PLENTY of time... More

Stopped by to grab a couple of plates to go for my elderly mother and I. The buffet was stocked with a bounty of breakfast items. The server, Draedina, did a fantastic job! My mother enjoys visiting.

We came to New Orleans for a spontaneous 48hr trip from Tampa and my boyfriend had told we needed to need eat at a Shoneys. And he was right!!! What a great place, delicious food that felt like it was prepared at home and the staff was awesome! Loved it! Would totally recommend it for road trips, a delicious breakfast... More
