“nothing to write home about”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This location of Ryan's isn't as good as some others I've been to. It's kind of hit-and-miss, at best. The salad bar is usually a good choice...lots of choices. The steamtable food is where I have an issue with them...most of the veggies are overcooked, which I dislike. The dessert bar is mostly canned pudding and cookies, not much in the way of actual baked goods. The yeast rolls that Ryan's is known for are usually ok here, IF you get them from your server, NOT off of the steam table...those are always hard on the bottom.

“Adequate”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This restaraunt is a place we go occasionally. They have an excellent salad and fruit bar, and if you keep it simple you can actually get a decent meal there. The rolls, baked chicken, carving board meats and veggies are good. Don't expect much from the seafood, pasta, pizza, or the desserts. They are hit and miss at best. If you use the coupons it's a bargain.
