I normally only review places I really like but in this case I felt it was worth an exception. Buffet food was below average. Bathrooms were filthy, like worse than a bad gas station. Remember what Anthony Bourdain says - if you are wondering how clean a restaurant's kitchen is, take a look at the bathrooms. So I can only... More

Reasonably priced, delicious food, nice variety, excellent server (Nicole), Not dirty, but could have been a little bit cleaner. I enjoyed my meal and would not hesitate to go back there again.

After visiting Crestview, we decided to stop in for dinner at Ryan's since we had been looking for a country buffet and these seem to be few and far between anymore (used to be all over the place!). We weren't disappointed - many selections on the buffet fixed the right way and great service! The only thing lacking was that... More

Haven't eaten at Ryan's for years we have found they are generally a good choice for a quick and reasonable meal. This location was as good as any we have eaten at. Recommend for anyone traveling through the area. All the food was fresh and good quality. Staff was attentive and pleasant.

A basic buffet, just pick what you want to eat. Service is amazing, no problem paying. Food was good, in which I got chicken, mac & cheese, and okra. There's even dessert. There's arcade machines just in case you want to spend money losing, but restrooms could be better. I don't trust most public restrooms anyway so doesn't matter to... More

We went for lunch at 11:15 and food was already over cooked, dried up or over sauced. Blah is the best way to describe it. The whole place needs a makeover from the smelly, dingy carpet to the nasty bathrooms. Add to it our waitress only came by once to take a plate and never offered to refill our glasses.... More

This is an average buffet restaurant. The food is kept warm, many varieties and plenty of parking and seating. Don't go here for the desserts...Dessert area only good for children.
