Since this restaurant no longer takes orders for steaks and has them on the buffet, the quality of the food has vastly improved. Buffet bars are kept heaping full. Great service, too.

We went here with a large group on a Saturday night and were seated quickly. The food choices on the buffet were good and the prime rib was way better than expected. They were a little slow clearing used plates but I had the feeling they were running short on staff. Overall would eat here again.

I found out this past winter, Ryan's across from Hamricks closed. Last time I was there, the food was very salty and it wasn't as good as it was before. Believe it is closed for business as I was down there in February, 2016.

We always eat at this restaurant two or three times while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. Prices are good and made even better by coupons we receive via email because of belonging to their Crave Connection club. The buffet has many, many food choices and they taste great. Restaurant is clean, buffet is kept full, and the staff are friendly.

This is a great place to go with family. The food was good and it offers a variety of food to accommodate everyone. The service was good and our waiter was very attentive to our table. The price was within budget as we had a lot of children in our party.

We have eaten at this restaurant in the past. All I can say to summarize it is that it sure could use some "help". The evening server hadn't shown up yet so they sent us to the "other side" to sit. The server on that side had a friend eating there and she spent the majority of her time talking... More

This buffet is great for the price. You have a lot of food to chose from the salad bar is always fresh, the hot bar is great and the desserts are also very good. Do not forget they have Military Mondays a discount for the troops.

Just got back from eating at Ryan's Steakhouse. Have no idea why the negative reviews. I purchased two Military Adult Dinners at a cost of $8.99 each. I ordered the Chop Steak and it was delicious. You have to ask for the steak to be done and brought to your table. Do not complain if they are small just order... More
