Food is pretty much the standard burger and chips unless you eat from the buffet, not bad but nothing to get excited over, one thing I didn't particularly like was one of the staff members who was a BIG girl couldn't walk past the buffet without picking at something, even worse she was just using her fingers. If she concentrated... More

We are here after a park one night. We had the buffet. It's not a huge buffet but the food was hot and it was quick. It's just average in taste and quality but that's what I expect from a buffet. You can also order off the menu but we didn't.

I love breakfast, especially after running a 1/2 marathon. We stopped at Shoney's, I have never been here before and live out of town. It looked decent, breakfasty and such. I was surprised at how limited their breakfast menu actually was- like very limited. So, the obvious choice was the breakfast buffet. I choose the fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, bacon,... More

We stopped in for breakfast and wound up getting the breakfast buffet. The food was good and they kept it full. The service was not great. When you think that all the waiter had to do was check on our drinks and remove our empty plates, he was slacking. We had to search for him to get a coffee refill... More

It had been years since I was at a Shoney's. Now, I remember why. The staff was friendly and nice, but definitely not excited to be there. They moved like robots. I had the buffet for breakfast. The bacon was "extra crispy" (over cooked with no flavor left). The scrambled eggs were OK, as was most of the fruit, melon,... More

Ate here late one night after visiting the theme parks all day. Got in late after 8pm. Our server was great and very accommodating. However, some of the food on the buffet looked as if it had been sitting awhile, but there was plenty of edible items and we all left satisfied. Wouldn't be my first choice again for late... More

Nice folks, nice and clean restaurant. Only problem was that there was not a whole lot to choose from on the buffet. We wanted to go for a quick dinner without spending too much. Good prices for a family

A couple of us had the buffet and loved it. A few of us ordered off the menu. The poached eggs took so incredibly long to make and were too runny. They fixed that for us. The toast was hard as rocks but the bacon was perfect!!

Well I've visited the US a number of times, and I have to be honest, it was quite simply the worst food and sevice I've ever had. The last time we visited Shoneys was over 5 yrs ago, and our last visit to Orlando 2 yrs ago, the usual restaurant we visited on the 192 was closed 'for remodelling'. We... More

On our exit from a short visit to WDW, we decided to give Shoney's a try, but it was not to be. The buffet looked fine if you are interested in quantity, and the menu looked fine as well. Unfortunately, we never got past viewing the buffet and perusing the menu because of a staff best described as apathetic or... More
