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.

This is one of the better Ryan's we have eaten in. Food was fresh and the service was excellent. We came in to the restaurant at 3:00, expecting to get lunch. They charged us for lunch we actually had dinner. My favorite is the ham and steak. I have never had a good steak at a buffet, but this was... More

What a waste of money, we should have left, but since we were with another family, we decided to stay. The roast beef looked like it was out in the open for hours, food crusted over in many of the dishes. We have been to Ryan's before in other towns.... But never again in Crossville. They should look into getting... More

Very friendly employees and relaxing atmosphere with a great selection of all type courses to choose from. Prices are very reasonable especially for senior citizens. Salad, fruit and dessert item selection, offers many choices. Close to exit 317 off I-40, South 127, 1/2 mile on left. Lots of seating so no disappointments because of long lines. Most folks will enjoy... More

We find some place that works for us and keep going there. Ryan's is one of those places. They offer a senior discount and a free drink at certain times in afternoon (2-3). I enjoy their fried chicken, salad choices, and always end with a piece of very good carrot cake. Also like their weekend brunch. We get their a... More
