Went with my husband for lunch, most of the food was old looking, several things were even out. When the items were added, very little and if you asked a a steak, be prepared to get two, yes two small bite size pieces, don't ask for three because you will be told you are only allowed two. Really? For the... More

So, we were hungry and wanting something filling because we still had a lot to do. Ryan's filled the bill. The price was great. We ate there at lunch time so it was about $15 for my husband and I, which was a good price for all you get. We never like paying anyone's drink prices, so we always drink... More

The food was cold, the salad bar was trashed, all they serve on the bar is medium well steak still bleeding. In order to get well done, one must ask the waitress, wait 20 minutes for 2 pieces about 1-2 inches long. The waitress even messed up our drink order, she poured watered down sprite in our water cups. We... More

Sadly, this place is on a down hill slide. I expect it to be a cheenise place son. The food is just OK at best. The parking area is OK at best. Getting into it can drag your bumper

The buffet was hot but obviously the food had been sitting for awhile. The tortillas in the keeper had turned to crackers while most of the meats were rubbery. The waitress managed to check on us occasionally but she smelled like a wet ash tray so we were happier that she stayed away. The rolls were stake and the desserts... More

Thus wull be my last visit here. The food on the bar looks and tastes as though it has been setting there for days. The salad bar while somewhat fresh has fewer items every time I have been here. This is truly the most disgusting restaurant in Middlesboro.

Nice restaurant with average selection. I was there for a meeting. The meeting room was large and worked out well enough. There were doors to keep the noise from the dining room out and the service was great. But, like Mose of these types of places, the tables, chairs, napkin holders, salt and pepper shakers, etc. we're quite sticky!

My family and i went for Valentines' Day. The food was wonderful! They must have got a new cook, and they really need to keep this one. I would like to say that this restaurant is always wonderful, but for now I have to hold back. Hopefully in the near future I will be able to give them a five... More

My wife and I were traveling through and decided to stop for breakfast. The time was 11:44 and they stop serving breakfast at 12:00. We thought that we still had time, but they had already started taking breakfast off of the food bar. No eggs, no sausage, no bacon. Okay, they still had a few biscuits and gravy left. We... More
