    This little tiny Shoney's is a lifesaver. We were trying to find some place to eat where we could eat fast and feed our tiny garbage disposal on the hop. Gatlinburg is lousy with restaurants but the fact that this Shoney's was right there sealed the deal. It was not the best Shoney's food I have ever had but the service was incredible. They had one server running the floor and she was quite possibly one of the best servers I have ever had anywhere. Kind, personable, and quick. Can't remember her name for the life of me but I do remember she was gorgeous. On the thicker side with brown hair, a few tattoos, and a great smile. If you need to feed a large group for a reasonable price in Gatlinburg this place won't disappoint. Order off of the menu and you can get an exceptionally good cheeseburger.

    Honestly, we wound up here by accident. We planned to eat at another breakfast place, but it was an insane 2 1/2 hour wait!! This Shoney's is tucked into a small spot on Parkway in downtown Gatlinburg. There was not a lot of seating space, but it was only about a 25-minute wait for breakfast on a Sunday. We did not know it was a buffet. That was a pleasant surprise. You access the buffet via a ramp to the second floor. I like the way the scrambled eggs were cooked. They were folded, then cut into bigger chunks. Not wisked into tiny pieces. This is not an exhaustive list of food on the buffet. They had gravy (very flavorful), grits, fried potatoes with onions (fantastic!), biscuits, pancakes, French toast sticks, sausage, bacon (awesome!), city ham, fried apples. I know there were some other items, but I can't remember what else there was. Our waitress was very nice and took good care of us. All interactions with the rest of the staff were pleasant. I will be back. Probably never try the other place with a 2 plus hour wait!

    My husband & I not only received hot, delicious food off of the buffet, but also top notch customer service today by the whole friendly team! Words can not describe how far the extra mile they all went neither can it express enough appreciation of my gratitude!! Special shout outs to Judy- helpful hostess & cashier, Christy - attentive waitress, & considerate Lanni!!! Thankful for a reasonable priced, quality meal on the strip! We will definitely be back here next time we're back in town!!

    We came with 14 people. This place is SMALL but we were accommodated with no problems. Buffet was good price for food on it. Everyone left full and happy

    We were hungry and they could get us in but we didn’t realize it was buffet only until after we ordered our drinks. Then the food on the buffet was not impressive. Between the three of us we ate only a tiny bit. We went to pay, and it was $61!!! For three buffets, two sodas and a coffee. The prices were not posted anywhere. We paid more for that breakfast that we barely ate than we did for any other meal while in Gatlinburg.
