Rushed in to grab a quick meal, requested one spaghetti dinner, received prompt attention for a to go order. The server was very nice, explaining the entree. After getting home was surprised by the generous portion of the spaghetti and the salad. The one meal ended up as a meal for two, Very much enjoyed the spaghetti and the salad... More

Shoney's was an okay restaurant. I wouldn't say it was top notch, but the prices were reasonable. The staff was okay, some seemed a little annoyed. I don't think I would eat here again because it was no my favorite place, but it was okay for one night.

Was walking distance to hotel so that is why it was chosen but it was a decent choice. Service was good, food was pretty good. It was what you expect from a chain restaurant. Would visit again.

This Shoney's is a great place to stop and eat. The food is good and the buffet was very well kept and maintained. Hot clean plates to keep my selections warm. And the number of selections was very good as well. And as always I comment on the restrooms. As clean here as the restaurant itself. Need a place to... More

We ate at Shoneys in nearby Abington and expected similar salad/buffet bar. However it was less abundant and most everything was fried. Final insult was that it was more expensive. They were also sweeping (with manual broom) right next to our table. We recommend you drive a few more miles and have a better selection at less cost.

I celebrated Thanksgiving alone due to a situation unique to me. I decided to dine at Shoney's today. Their usual Buffet had sliced Deli Turkey with Dressing and sweet potatoes with marshmallows. Special for Thanksgiving was a slice of Pumpkin Pie with a dollop of Whipped "Cream" on top with the Buffet. I brought my own Cranberry Sauce. The problem... More

Stopped for lunch on our travels and it was a fairly decent Shoney's. Service was very good and the food tasty. Easy on and off the highway which was important. Plenty of parking.

We ate a late dinner on a Saturday evening. We were tired after a long day in Blacksburg so we walked over to Shoney's from our hotel. Our waitress was not attentive at all. It wasn't very busy and it took 20 minutes to get our food. We only ordered a patty melt. My baked potato was over cooked on... More

I took a group of 5 people here while working in Dublin. Most food was mass produced and fried. The buffet has lot's of choices, but nothing spectacular. Desserts looked great, but were disappointing overall. If you're indifferent about the quality of food and want unlimited amounts then eat here. Fatz is a better choice for good food.
