Lots of variety, but great flavor is not always there

We ate here recently and it was a good meal, but I did not enjoy it the way I had hoped to. The flavor the food was not bad, but not great either.

The restaurant is between the highway and the outlet mall, which might explain the average age of the clientele (I'd have to put the number in the 70s). The price was slightly lower than some Ryan's I've been to, but the selection of food was smaller, and there is no grill, at least none that I saw. The quality of... More

The food was typical for a Ryans Buffet. The restaurant's carpet was literally black with dirt and grease to the point your shoes would lightly stick to the carpet. The bathrooms were filthy as well. I've never seen a dirtier restaurant; we won't be going back.

We paid for the lunch buffet and began grazing about the steam tables. I had been experiencing eye watering problems from a cyst and my vision was off a bit. I did not see how nasty the carpet was until later in the meal. As I walked in some areas the carpet was actually sticky and gross nasty. The men's... More

We stopped her for dinner and the food selection was good as well as the taste. Service on drink refills was OK, but the cleanliness was below average with tables and the floor. Not a place we would come to very often.

It was very welcoming-bright, clean, cool and comfortable. All of the staff-from the cashier to our waitress were very friendly. They also had a customer service person that came around to check that all was ok. Large variety of foods to choose from-especially impressed with the salad bar selections.

Traveling and stopped for a hot meal. Ryan's in Commerce, Ga is easy to find and its right off I 85 and close to many hotels. The food is identical to what you find in all Ryans. Good home style cooking. Plenty of fresh salad items and dessert. They offered steaks and cooked them to order. My hubby was happy... More

No flavor in the mashed potatoes or the gravy. Also the green beans and the Black eyed peas. The salad was wonderful as was the service. Will not go back.

where else can you can all you can possibly eat, and a coke for less than $15? Okay, its a bit of a zoo when it is busy, but the good is good, the variety is excellent, the staff and friendly and it is very clean - I have to give it 5 stars!
