Shoney's is inviting America to get hooked on freshly prepared, quality seafood selections, which include a new Atlantic Cod with Blue Crab and Shrimp Cake and its famous Friday Night Seafood Buffet for a limited time.

Fish Sandwich – Shoney's fried codfish filet sandwich served on a toasted hoagie with lettuce and tartar sauce, served with choice of side
Available a la carte all week, guests can enjoy all of these seafood items and more for one price with Shoney's Friday Night Seafood Buffet.
Shoney's also is featuring a new dessert, Cool Berry Pie, a creamy tart filling blended with raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries, paired on a rich chocolate cookie crust, finished with a whipped topping and powdered sugar.
"Every day, America is looking for fresh quality food at a great value with friendly service. And at this time of year, they are also looking for incredible seafood, new choices, and tasty desserts," says David Davoudpour, Shoney's Chairman and CEO. "Guests will find all of those and more at Shoney's, where we are undergoing a brand revitalization that you can see and taste."
Since acquiring Shoney's in January 2007, Davoudpour has been on a driven and spirited mission to revive and reinvigorate Shoney's family-friendly, southern style restaurants, which was one of the premier family casual dining concepts in the United States.
Davoudpour caught the restaurant industry by surprise earlier this year with the unveiling of his new prototype restaurant at Sugarloaf Mills in Lawrenceville, Georgia. The state-of-the-art Shoney's features traditional favorites, including cooked-to-order entrees and seasonal buffets. The inside-the-mall location, a first for Shoney's, also features a full liquor service, big-screen TVs, and Shoney's On The Go, a quick service dining option providing fresh, high quality Shoney's favorites within minutes.
