I was pleasantly surprised to see how good the food was on their buffet. I arrived at 1pm on a Saturday afternoon and the restaurant was very busy. Several pans and dishes on the bars were depleted and the kitchen staff was refilling them as quickly as possible. Besides an extensive salad bar and dessert bar, the main hot bars... More

Arrived at 5 pm on a Friday for dinner with 95 y/o friend on his birthday. His favorite place. Dinner with water (tea is an extra $2.19 a glass!) was $24 for my wife and me. Buffet was well-stocked with what turned out to be generally below-average food. Baked chicken breast quarter was hard and dry. Server-sliced roast beef was... More

With 2 teenage boys, Ryans was perfect. The food was fresh and hot. Everyone was happy. The restaurant was clean. Our waitress was very attentive. She kept the drinks coming and cleared our dirty plates fast. Will definitely go back.

Went to Ryans with husband and kidsaround 2 pm..we were just sitting down at a table when we noticed how filthy the tables were..my husband had to go wash something sticky and black off his hands from the table. The food wasnt very hot. What was out looked a bit pathetic. Nothing tasted great. We wont be going back.

A great deal of choices, salad bar is good, fried chicken great but the steak they grill is pretty tough. You will find it difficult to refrain from over-indulging. It is one of the few place that I will continue to go to regularly.

This is one of the best deals around. I am trying to loose weight and vegetables are expensive and the preparation takes time. I stopped in for a quick bite and realized my keys were locked in the car... The staff assisted me so that I could call AAA and even served me iced tea while I waited... Management must... More
