Used to be the "nice" resturaunt everyone went to in town on the weekends. Then Bob Evans moved in....then Applebee's and its just kind of faded into being what it is now: the Summersville Nursing Home Cafeteria.
Yuck

And it needs a good cleaning. I used to love going there, but when you really start looking in the nooks and cranny/windowsills....nasty. I miss going there

It hasn't "gone bad" it's "been bad"! I haven't ate there for about 5 or 6 years now. Nasty!!! The current owners need to go ahead and retire and let someone new take over. I don't think they care anymore.
The only good shoneys left is in Lewisburg, on 219.
Bob Evans in Summersville is getting just as bad anymore. I stopped eating there too.

The Shoney's in Quincy is the best. Lots more on the bar and seafood night is 10 times better.

It has been going down hill even faster in the last year or two. If I want spaghetti or boiled hot dogs I will make them myself! Serve something good on the lunch buffet and people would come!
hmmmmmmm

There is never any management there when we have eaten of an evening, only on seafood night, I guess that is to make sure people don't share the seafood bar. LOL! The employees seem to run it. Yes, I agree. It needs lots of improvements!

I don't know if any of you here are aware, the same family owns the one in Flatwoods, as here in Summersville. I know the originial owner Inez passed away. She had a daughter Patty and a son. We used to talk to Patty here, but maybe she is in Flatwoods. Maybe they have sold the Resturant to new owners. But if any of you go to the Flatwoods store. I would comment to someone in managment, how bad it is in Summersville. By the way I ate in the Lewisburg Shoneys tonight. Pretty darn good.

Glad you said "belly aches". Now I know what it is from. I've always said it was the salad bar. Is it true that they put a preservative on the lettuce, etc. If so, I'd say that's the culprit. Just a thought.

Attention everyone

There is not a damn thing wrong with our shoney's. We try to keep it clean but certain dumb ass immature ass holes who come in and make a big mess while we are busy spoil the experience to for all the other customers. I have worked there for over 10 years now and yes our business has gone down but its mostly beacause of the increase on compotition We ALWAYS try to keep the place as safe and sanitary as humanly posible. I am sorry If you had a bad experience at our story but Please let me assure you that your next visit will be greatly improved!

This shoneys is the worst shoneys around the area. Go try the one at oak hill, lewisburg, or quincy. They all have fresher food, more choices, better quality and better desserts. This shoneys needs improvement. It is sanitary and all but they need to work on things.
