We love to stop at Ryan's when we are in the area. We normally get great service and good food in a pleasant atmosphere. Love to go 1till 3 PM when Seniors get free drink with meal.

met family in Crossville and went to Ryan's for supper. There was a large variety of food and something for everybody (4 of us total). We all left full and satisfied. Reasonable cost

I had read Ovation Brands was trying to upgrade Ryans quality - so we thought we'd given them a try since all the Ryans have closed around our home area - now I see why! The steak I was given was so burnt that it literally crunched when cut - it was inedible/unchewable - I then tried a Fried Chicken... More

Stopped by this place thinking that there had to be something good to eat. How wrong can a person be? In my opinion, Everything su@ked, chicken so dry it would make you choak, veggies bad tasting, roast stringy and tough. go here and be assured to lose weight. Maybe pay them for the weight loss plan.LOL NEVER,EVER, AGAIN.

Can't comment on the other reviews but service was very friendly and overall food was fresh hot and pretty good. I would say better then the last few buffets I have been to.

I've been to this Ryan's once before and was satisfied. This time, the food was just average. It was filling but nothing seemed to be seasoned. The cobbler was good and was kept hot which was good but even the bbq chicken didn't have much taste. I was disappointed!

Really poor quality foods is all I found here. With the exception of the fried chicken and the yeast rolls, everything else I tried was not very good. No meatloaf or buffalo wings, 2 things that I was expecting to see. No seafood other than cheap frozen fish sticks and microscopic popcorn shrimp. Server was very nice, I felt like... More

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon and were very happy with the food. The food stations were kept full and clean, the staff was friendly and helpful and the food was good. There wasn't a big selection of meat items but what they had was good. The only issue we had was with the cake. I had a piece... More

First of all, the buffet is overpriced for such few selections. The selections available were old, cold, and in some cases, unidentifiable. The best options were pizza and dinner rolls. The rolls were fine and the pizza had no flavor, which was a better alternative than foods with a bad flavor. We visited on St. Patty's Day and they had... More

I am amazed you can sell food like that garbage! Made the mistake of going there one time!!! Ryan's is by far the worst food I have ever tasted.
