New is not always better, that's for sure. In this case, it's alarming just how many 1-star reviews that people are giving Logan's Roadhouse in Muscle Shoals. Here you have a newer restaurant and the Florence location, although not a great lot better, scored much better than the Shoals location. I've noticed that someone from Logan's corporate has commented on each review but makes you wonder why this restaurant continues getting bottom of the barrel reviews and why Logan's hasn't done something about it yet.
When I eat at Logan's I choose the Florence location and haven't been disappointed in what I've gotten there the last few times. After reading all the reviews of the Muscle Shoals location it makes me want to avoid it like the plague. I haven't seen so many negative, service, reviews since Las Trojas in the Florence Mall. The only Muscle Shoals restaurant with worse reviews is Shoney's.
Regarding Shoney's restaurants, I wonder just how much longer they can stay in business because they are absolutely horrible. Shoney's used to be a dining destination, of mine, years ago and I have had very good meals there but over the years they changed to mainly the buffet bar type service and from there, things continued in a downward spiral. One thing you can count on with the Friday Fish buffet/bar and that is when you walk by the bar the fish smell will knock you down. Shoney's has some really profound, possibly never can recover from, issues but Logan's should be able to get a handle on their issues and correct them. The question is what's going on with the management at the Muscle Shoals location?
