We were VERY disappointed in our meal. Couldn't have Caesar because they were out of Romaine lettuce. Ordered Chicken Parmesan, served with a steak knife! So dried out that steak knife wouldn't cut. Marinara sauce so salty, could not eat. Salmon overcooked, Gyro cold. This was after an hour. Waitress never came back to see if everything was okay. We... More

They said they were very good. Our waitress was very friendly and took care of our needs. The restaurant was busy at 11:00... More

Service is excellent on the soft drink refills and clearing of tables, and the buffet gets regular refreshing. It's... More

Every time I have been to Ria's it's been the same--great food (really good lunch buffet), but awful service. They have a decorative bottle of Grey Goose vodka at the bar but don't stock or serve it. During my most recent trip I ordered two drinks and neither of them was as I ordered; another member of my party, a... More

Waited at bar 15 minutes before bartendress came. Informed this bar does not have gingerale. I had the fried chicken special which came with soggy fries. My husband had boiled shrimp that had zero seasoning.

This place is a frequent restaurant on the list of my out of town coworkers. When they come in town and we are able to go to lunch they always add Ria's to the list of possibilities. This place is always busy at lunch. The nice thing is that we always get seated quickly and the place is clean. I... More

We had a group of seven for dinner. We had plenty of signs to leave. There was no bartender on duty. A manager would periodically go behind the bar and fill the drink orders. Our waitress was under 18 so we had to walk back to the bar to get our own drinks. No draft beer but some decent craft... More
