My family & I have patronized Shoney's restaurants in Memphis, TN since the1970's & really have enjoyed our meals there, The associates were always friendly & helpful. On 01/16/'17, my daughter & I ate @ Shoney's Restaurant, 5829 Summer Ave, Memphis, TN 38134, around 1pm. The appearance of the interior of the building almost sent us away but, because we... More

When I was much younger, I loved going to Shoney's, especially for breakfast. I try one every once in a while and I'm mostly disappointed. The food was okay. My friend had buffet and I had salad bar and hamburger steak. Service was good and our server was friendly. Building is falling apart. Doors, lights missing, table wobbly. Bathroom smelled,... More

They had breakfast on one side and lunch on the other. The price was not bad at all for buffet and the food was pretty good. It could've been a little more organized and cleaner, but I know there were lots of people there.

Pulled In the clean parking lot, went in and the restrooms were clean as was the inside of the restaurant, We were greeted and seated. We placed our order and the food was very good, as was the service, JUST NO CAR HOPES ANY MORE!!!! But they do serve seafood, but I do not consider it a Seafood Restaurant.

Always enjoy the southern cooked food on the buffet. Breakfast or Lunch. Had a great experience with our waitress who made sure we were well taken care of but also reminded us to ask for our "Young Folks" discount. Some of the staff have been there for years and they work well together. Love going to Shoney's!

Got the breakfast buffet and it was vey good. Everything was hot and it tasted fresh. Our waitress was really good and kept our plates picked up and drinks refilled, and she was really friendly. I would definitely come back again!

Food was fair but overpriced for what you got. The waitress we had was good. We went on a Saturday around 4:30 during the so called "seafood buffet". I got sick on the stuffed crab. Probably will never eat there again. Other workers were very loud laughing and talking to each other when they weren't busy. Very unprofessional. Not impressed... More

Tuesdays are steak night! For little more than the price of salad bar you can get a steak and salad bar! The meat isn't the best, but with the soup, salad and baked potato bar included it is a bargain! The salad bar is a meal in itself. Includes soups, salad, green beans, corn, gravy, cheese, corn bread, etc.

Shoney's breakfast buffet. Good variety, good food for a chain restaurant. Enough said. The cleanliness of my table was lacking. It was clean of food, but the vinyl covering the table was sticky under my bear arms. It was easily corrected with a clean towel.
