Ryans was a decent buffet but it really didn't have anything that set it above others and in this time of restaurant offering more and unusual items it just did not keep up. The military special price on Monday was a good thing but just not enough to keep them in business. The staff was very friendly and I am... More

If you are particular about your food, do not eat here. There steaks are pretty good, especially for what you pay, and their buffet has a small variety, but all-in-all, I have higher standards for my food. The service is touch & go. Sometimes, usually the men have been better servers, compared to the ladies. The buffet is not always... More

I have eaten here before and it was pretty good. Tonight was not the best. I guess it all depends on who is cooking the food. Not sure if I will be back or not.

Needing a place to eat with some visiting friends, we went to Ryan's. We beat the after church crowd and had a good experience. The wait staff was friendly and the food was okay.

Just don't go, it's simple, don't do it. The food was disgusting. The bar was dirty the restaurant was filthy and the restrooms matched everything else. The prices are high. Just don't go.

This was at one time the place to go for a buffet. Unfortunately, they have got lost in the mix of bigger and better buffets that have come around. They have not found a way yet to bring back the glory days of Ryan's. The service is good and the staff is friendly. The food though is not always the... More

Everything is fried and everything tastes the same. It doesn't smell very good in the restaurant almost musky. Would not likely go back

Since the closure of our Ryan's several years ago we have not visited one, then we decided to take the grandchildren out and we were not disappointed! Excellent selection of food well prepared and presented! We really enjoyed it as we had a varied selection for the kids and Nonnie didn't have to cook or do dishes. If it weren't... More

I rate this very good knowing that buffet food in general can not be expected to have the quality of a regular restaurant. That said, the food is pretty good and fresh. Great salad bar, a good variety of entree food, and terrific deserts. We go there especially when we're in a hurry or just looking for a quick meal.... More

Food seemed ok. But I have been so sick. I will never eat at any Ryan's anywhere ....ever again. Service was ok.....but the waitress never cleaned our empty plates. Thank God I never got a dessert. This is the second time I got sick from the Greer restaurant. Last time was about five years ago. Never again.
