I visited the garners ferry location of Shoney's with my husband tonight for dinner. The buffet was delicious! Everything was hot, salad bar was fresh, everything we tried had been seasoned well. Our server Kelly was very attentive and helpful. We'll be returning soon!

The food was ok not a large selection but considering covid it was ok the service was good until I tried to pay the check they made me wait 10 mn because she was out smoking and then a was on her personal phone while I paid.

Restaurant was very clean and food was very good & fresh tasting. The staff was also attentive and friendly. Shoney's always has a bad rep (my opinion), but I would suggest the one pn Garner's ferry.

Mama's Birthday started out GREAT with a breakfast buffet at Shoney's. This location keeps the bar fresh and hot - except the salads that were cold as they should be.

Breakfast was great but water tasted/smelled like it contained chlorine.

We ordered tea and a hot fudge cake. The tea bags were thrown in, it tasted of coffee and they had no hot fudge cake. To add insult to injury they called us "you guys" 50 times.

They'd have a 5 star if they had more wings and desserts. Otherwise everything was great.

I have never been to Shoney's before. I recently moved here from Orlando, and there are Shoney's literally everywhere there but they're all closed and abandon. I am always weary of buffets, people cough and sneeze on them, but my boyfriend convinced me to try this one, and I have to say that I liked it, despite the many poor reviews that it has. I didn't have the buffet, I had chicken tenders with onion rings. As well as the broccoli cheese soup which I could not get enough of. Honestly I could've eaten the entire supply of that soup that they had. One of the employees suggested that I put sour cream in it and it was absolutely delicious. I definitely would not mind coming back, as long as they still have that broccoli cheese soup!

Great Christmas buffet. Unfortunately they allow children to serve themselves making for an unappetizing mixture of germs and food. Really should heat the ham rather than serve it refrigerator cold.

Great service. The server was very friendly and the food was good. I ordered from the menu. I would recommend the buffet as the menu prices seemed kind of high. I am not complaining though as I liked it and had a really nice experience.

I haven't eaten Shoneys food in many years, still good. Very clean and warm reception.

Their sweet tea is the BOMB. It is the tatse of the south. They could however add a little more to their buffet.

I've only been to one Shoneys before and it was pretty good. This was the entire opposite of the spectrum. Food was just terrible and the wait times were bad for the main courses of the buffet. Limited selection too. Waitress was at least very attentive

We came to Columbia South Carolina for work and the first place that the two guys I was with want to stop to eat with Shoney's. Shoney's serve the purpose and had a decent breakfast buffet. I wouldn't say it's anything to write home about but the staff was very friendly the place was clean and the buffet tables were clean as well which is important to me. It was okay for a breakfast stop but I won't be going back. Not because of this particular place but just because I am not a buffet type heater

My family and I went to Shoneys on Sunday in between services. Kendrick, our waiter was very patient and helpful. We had about 12 people, including children, and he was great !

Went on a Friday for buffet. 4 trays were empty. Told staff about it. I ordered a steak and could not tell if it was a hamburger steak or steak. Husband tried it and he also was not sure what it was. Will not go back

The buffet was fair and some food was a little cold. We have had better food for breakfast at this restaurant.The price is a little high for average food. Did we pick a bad day????

Where to begin? It started off a wonderful day with my family that came in from out of state. Where do you go with 4 extra people(2 of them being under the age of 3)? Shoney’s. The place that brings joy to friends and family. The place I visited frequently when I was a kid. So we come to this location and soon find out our wonderful childhood memories would be replaced with a nightmare. Though the staff was friendly the food was not. I get my favorite items biscuit and gravy with a side of bacon and home fries. Mouth watering I bite into the potato’s and was greeted with cold stale sadness. So I go to take a drink of my coffee to get the foul taste out of my mouth only to find out I have been served decaf instead. I ask the waiter why he had done this to me he tells me that his manager has told him that he must not tell anyone that they are being betrayed because they were out of regular sweet caffeinated nectar. I then notice that the spoon I had just taken out of my coffee was in fact dirty and had a chunk of god knows what stuck to it. Thinking this cannot possibly get worse I take a bite of cold eggs only to find a long blond hair hanging halfway out of my mouth and my family is also eating this monstrosity. We ask for a manager with highly upset kids because we had to take the food away. The manager was unfortunately running late and could not help. Tread lightly when deciding to eat at this location.

This place was recently renovated and I was pretty hesitant to give them a try. We were hungry for brunch and really didn't want to wait in line anywhere. I remembered this Shoney's had been freshly redesigned and I wanted to give them a try. We called to check the brunch time. They stop serving brunch at 11:00 AM and move to lunch so make sure you get there early. The phone was answered by a lovely and friendly gentleman who encouraged me to come on it and check it out. So we did! Fresh food was available even up to the very minute when the buffet changed to lunch. I was so thrilled. There were so many options on the buffet from the heavier meats to some of the yummier breakfast options. The seating was clean and our server was friendly and attentive. The best part of our whole trip was the bill. We ate so much food and our bill was so low. I was just thrilled. I highly recommend this newly renovated location for a great breakfast option in Columbia!
