Good value, if you come hungry

We had 7-people for $85 + $10 tip; even with 3 sr citizens; this included grilled steaks, however, so we got our $'s worth; fresh salads, fruit, steamed veggies - a lot of ways to chow down and stay low-cal. Everyone left satisfied.

This buy far is the worst restaurant I have ever visited. I find it really scarry that anyone would give this place a positive review. This food if you can call it food, is not fit for human consumption. I would think this would be pig food.

Great value for the price. One price covers all you can eat on the buffet. The server will take your order for three kinds of steak or pork chops (grilled or fried). We had the grilled pork chops and they were absolutely delicous. There is soup and salad, various entrees, pototoes, and vegetables on the buffet, and dessert bar including... More

prior visits to Ryan's were not all that great; however went for lunch the other day (had coupon) and I must say they have greatly improved in food quality. They have some individualized entrees like pot roast and chicken pot pies which were very tasty. Desserts were also served individually which I liked; didn't have to look at a whole... More

It was gross. The chicken looked like it had been fried 2 or 3 times. That was the only meat avialble on the buffet. every thing else was cold. We where seated and waited at least 5 min before we got our drinks and everything at the bar was empty or cold. we ended up asking for our money back... More

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.
