Shoney's 920 US-1, Lugoff, SC 29078   5 comments

Posted at 11:51 pm in closing










It's back to Lugoff for this Shoney's on US-1 past US-601 on the way to Camden. Shoney's had fallen on hard times even before COVID-19, but that seems to have been the deciding factor here. Looking at their Facebook page, it appears they temporarily closed for COVID in July of 2020. Judging from Google reviews, they reopened at some point after that and then closed for good sometime in the spring of 2021.

I really should stop by a Shoney's sometime and get the Hot Fudge Cake -- it's been years since I had one.

Interestingly (or not) there is a closed restaurant just East of here that I took to have originally been a Shoney's, but that seems unlikely with this one so close by.

  1. Are you talking about the green and white building on the left if you're going towards the river? If so, way back when it used to be a Western Sizzlin. It's also been a Plums and several other eateries over the years - none of which have ever been very good. They all kinda gave off a Gordon Ramsay Kitchen Nightmares kind of vibe.

  2. Yes, that's the one -- appears to have been Halls Restaurant & Catering most recently.

  3. Gypsie and Ted, definitely not the same building as Shoney's. Shoney's was right across highway 34 from McDonalds. Western Sizzlin' was further down next to San Jose and in front of the Piggly Wiggly. As a Lugoffian I will definitely miss Shoney's. It was the only Shoney's or restaurant in general that still served crawdaddys.

  4. Ahhh misunderstood your comments. Yes the building next to San Jose was Hall's (a local family). And before that Western Sizzlin' which I miss terribly!

  5. They tore the old building down and built a Cookout there. It’s pretty good so far!
