My husband and I ate here on Saturday night and we were hoping it wouldn't be a waste if $. To our surprise it was great! All the food on the buffet that we had was well seasoned, fresh and tasty. We enjoyed it so much better than the Golden Corral's we've eaten at. The steaks were tender, juicy and... More

Came in for dinner and the food islands were dirty. Children picking out chicken legs from the bar with their forks and then licking the forks only then to scoop out of the tray of macaroni & cheese with same fork. Watched another kid drop a few pieces of chicken then pick it up and put it back into the... More

All food here is greasy! Over salted and not a good selection of meat. It's fried chicken or fried chicken. No baked. Fish in a butter sauce. Veggies ok, salad bar ok. Service was very good. The one thing that was really disgusting was the ladies room. I spoke with the manager and let him know it needs pressure washed!... More

We enjoyed Ryan's breakfast buffet in a private room with a party of about 50 people. The breakfast selections were good and very reasonably priced. Apparently, there was a mix up in our reserved times because management moved our party into the main area from the private area when we were only half finished. We noticed only one couple were...

Ryans is a good buffet to go to. The food is not spectacular but it is offered at a cheap price. They have a big selection of food at the buffet. The food is always hot. The rolls they serve you when you first sit down is delicious. The servers always have a smile on their face when serving you... More

It was okay. We were looking for comfort food, so both the baked and fried chicken was spot on. A bigger selection of proteins and fewer desserts would have been appreciated. fyi: the service was great and the place very clean. Would we return, maybe...

For seven dollars a person For lunch I expected more. Only two hot food islands- tiny desserts – and a mediocre salad bar. Nothing was labeled (and trust me you needed the labels with this stuff). I suggest driving another 30 minutes south to the Golden corral buffet in Fort Walton Beach. Same price with at least six separate food... More

Ate an early lunch and arrived when the service bar was in perfect shape. Food was tasty and hot. Service was very good. Not sure why......but they don't allow to-go cups of soft drinks or tea. So drink up while you are there.

Stopped in starving thinking this place was more of a restaurant than a buffet. They had a decent selection, nothing great, nothing bad. I did have a nice chicken thigh. I like my ribs a little more tender. Salad bar was fine. We had a nice server who kept our drinks filled up.
