After a real letdown at Perkins the night before; we decided to try this one for breakfast the next day. The service was great and the food was good. The breakfast bar more than accommodated us as we celebrating "Pesach" there were many things on it that we could not eat. However there was a good selection of things we... More

We always enjoy Shoney's whenever we get to go to Tennessee. There are none left in N.C. much to our disappointment. We love this Shoneys because of a waitress named Amanda. We don't get to go there very often but she remembers us and is a very good waitress.

We stopped by this spot because it was close to our hotel and easy after a long flight and late night. Overall, I wish I would have waited for a better dinner though. The food took a very long time, almost 30 minutes for three entrees (wings, chicken and a salad). The wait staff was distracted doing their own socializing.... More

Went on a Saturday night, it wasn't overly busy, but the host/hostess station had nobody there when I arrived and I wait several minutes. This would be bad planning on the part of management. Bought the sirloin steak special. Had a salad and an potato as a side. The salad was a bit interesting, they don't appear to have a... More

Ate supper and breakfast off the buffet, Sevierville was too crowded so stayed across the street. Excellent salad bar and breakfast buffet, restaurant needs updating but food was good. Sign on door and cashier said that Shoneys is looking to expand, hopefully they do.

I'm not a buffet fan but Shoneys in Dandridge has really improved there food on the buffet. They have a very good selection of vegetables, several meats and a nice salad bar. There menu items are very good as well. Fast and friendly service. Will certainly be back.

Everything on the buffet was incredible. Country cooks are talented out in Dandridge. The strawberry pie is the "cat's meow/pajamas". We took ours home with us. Properly prepared since probably 1962, I believe in Memphis, their strawberry pie with fresh strawberries, glaze and graham cracker crust is a treat worth the time and money to imbibe. After a day of... More

Drive on. The menu looks ok but the food is completely tasteless. Fries, fish and shrimp all taste the same. Even the fruit was just different colours, cold and edible.

My family and I were staying across the street in the hotel while on vacation and decided to eat at this restaurant. The food on the buffet was just terrible looking really! The lettuce was brown, the the chicken was cold & old yuck! Nothing was labeled...the mystery fish was so old you could clearly see it was so dried... More
