They also used to own Captain D's and the Hungry Fisherman chains.

Anyone remember eating at the Hungry Fisherman? They built their restaurants surrounded by a big pond with a dock that felt like you were getting ready to board a fishing vessel. Big fish tanks inside that fascinated me as a kid. I remember going to the one in Columbia but not where it was located. Seems like I went to the one in Greenville too as a kid - think that one was located off Pelham near where California Dreaming is now. At that time there was nothing out on that part of Pelham Rd.
I would like to see Shoney's rejoin the Big Boy franchise again and revitalize the way they used to be as a good restaurant. The breakfast bar was great and reasonably priced. And I always enjoyed the Big Boy burger and the hot fudge cake. As for Hungry Fisherman, they had good seafood and there was also a location on Lake Wylie just across the bridge from Charlotte. And I would like to see Captn. D's return to the Upstate, as they are better than Long John Silver's. And Shoney's also used to own Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken, which still has locations in Rock Hill and Spartanburg.

Good news to hear in the other thread that Captn. D's is returning to the Upstate. Good fast seafood restaurant, and I prefer them over Long John Silver's.

Long John Silver's has made bad decisions that have resulted in the closing of many locations over the years. In a region where it has been the only fast seafood concept chain, that is bad.

I will give Captain D's credit for understanding the need for fast seafood, Long John Silver's demise, and an opportunity to re-enter the region and do things Long John Silver's came short.

Many great retail ideas, although perhaps a bit much for such a small town. Where exactly is Smoaks, SC? At least I am learning a geography lesson here. But good news about Captain D's returning to the area.

Smoaks is a town located in Colleton County, south of Branchville, and northwest of Walterboro. United States 21 is the major route through town.
