Great breakfast bar. Hot and fresh. Waitress very nice and kept our coffee cup filled. There was a gentleman behind the bar cleaning and making sure the food was fresh. We visited January 6,2016 around 8/9 am.

Very nice restaurant that is clean. Shoney's offers something for children and adults alike. They have a menu with a wide selection from steak, ham/cheeseburgers, and chicken tenders to the most amazing deserts. If you haven't tried hot fudge cake, you need to try it,...More
