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.

I had the buffet with unsweet tea at a cost of 10 bucks for lunch. Not a value granted I do not eat large portions of food. The items on the buffet are not labeled and most are fried. I have a shellfish and nut allergy so thank goodness I have an epi pen ready just in case. The food... More

Our local Ryans is terrible & I didn't want to visit this one but with a group of 7 it was our best option for eating. Wow I was impressed this was a good buffet with actually good food & a great value for the price. If you have a group of picky eaters come here.

DH and I do a month long road trip every year so have been to many Ryan's restaurants. I find it depends where you eat and what city. Lots of kudos to this one in Crestview Florida! The restaurant was very clean, the servers were superb and DH had the steak and said it was cooked to perfection. The selection... More

I was very surprised by Ryan's. It was my first visit and someone leaving handed me a coupon which was nice. I especially enjoyed the cheese rolls. A good selection of food for all appetites. Wish I had left room to explore more of the desert bar. The server was polite and kept our drinks fresh. I definitely would return... More

The variety was very limited. Found more than one dirty plate. Half of the food was low quality. My view of the bakery area was not very complimentary.
