Family Buffet

We liked the fact that the restaurant was clean and well lit. The steam tables are replenished quickly and the food is hot when plated. The servers and staff are friendly and courteous. A good place for a family to chow down.

When the buffet first opened several years ago their food was very good. The last two times we visited, however, the food tasted like instant or frozen with little or no flavor too much of anything and was overpriced to boot. Will not be returning unless we hear of some major changes. It's too bad because there are so few... More

This is a poor quality buffet at a steak house price. The food taste cheap, not fresh. But it's way over priced. Other buffets in nearby towns offer much better food at much better prices. Some even half the price of this one. I went on Memorial day and had a coupon for $1 off. The manager told me they... More

The cashier / greeter at the front was fantastic. The service was fantastic! The cleanness, quality, and taste of food was great!

We enjoy this place for Senior Lunch/Dinner. We usually see a movie and then go to Ryan's at about 2pm when drinks are included with price. The fried chocked is very good. Never had a bad piece. The buffet has many items even at lunch. With some items they do require so seasoning but overall, this a good place, reasonably... More

Now that I'm in my 50's and having to watch my girlish figure, I don't often like to visit these "all you can keep down" places to eat... but the food here's really great, as is the service. Lots of folks eat here at lunch, when the prices are a little lower, but whether is't lunch or dinner, these guys... More

Big food, little money. We are breakfast people so we were excited when they opened for breakfast but not real pleased. It's been awhile so we will have to try it again, they definitely could have improved. Heck, take your kids. If you got a dessert at a standard restaurant, you'd be paying $4 to $6 bucks but here the... More

Our family has been here a handful of times and it is always good. There is always plenty of food at the buffet and it's typically quite fresh. I especially enjoy the yummy rolls and superb salad bar!

Save your money not worth it at all! Non appetizing. I would feed this food to my dog not my children nor myself. Worst food ive ever put in my mouth.

I always go to Golden Corral and this is the first time I have been inside a Ryan's to eat. I had the sirloin steak with brown gravy and it was delicious. My 6 year old son had 3 bowls of the homemade chicken noodle soup (he was feeling under the weather). I was astonished at the cleanliness of the... More
