Okay buffet

Place to fill up on a variety of foods... great for when everyone wants something different. Service was exceptional for this type of venue.

Ryan's in Crestview,FL is a terrible restaurant! It's dirty, the staff sits around at a table together talking while the food stations are low and very messy with spills all over. The dessert station had a choice of 4 desserts both times we visited there. The first time we thought it had to just be a fluke because we've eaten... More

I no longer go here after several visits where I witnessed unsanitary practices. The management made excuses instead of rectifying the conditions, even after I complained to the head quarters he never contacted us as promise when they intervened concerning roaches crawling out on top of our table while we were eating! Bathrooms are filthy and floors greasy; staff does... More

Came here on a Thursday which is advertised in the windows as "kids night." Well, what's also advertised is a kids movie. When we paid the hostess rudely said "I don't think that's gonna work tonight." I then asked what she ment and she told me their tv was broken, so if you plan on some fun filled family/kid movie...

My family really enjoyed this Ryan's location. All of our previous experiences with Ryan's were terrible so we didn't expect much. Upon arrival, the staff is a bit underwhelming. But once you are inside, the buffet is quite extensive with a little something for everyone. Things that stood out to me were the hot off the grill steaks which were... More

If you like eating large amounts of average food, then Ryan's is the place for you. The upside is that there is plenty of space, so you are never fighting for a seat. It just has the trough feel and you feel like a cow when you leave.

Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was average, but there were a number of items we wouldn't get because they were old and dried out. The management needed to have more attention to the spilled food that had been spilled by customers. A good reminder why we avoid buffets.
