This has to be the best Ryan's I have eaten at. Little pricey since me and daughter are not big eaters. But we were tired of fast food. Staff very nice.

Came in with family for a dinner. We had 4 in the party. Pay first then pick a table. Waitress was friendly and got our drinks. They did look very understaffed. They had two lines of food to pick from, a nice salad / fruit bar, ice cream / pies, steak grill. The guy working the steak grill was kinda... More

Our large group of 30+ was seated comfortably in a separate room (we called ahead, but still had to arrange the tables ourselves.) The beverage service was good, but it was difficult to get rolls for both tables. The buffet setup was perfect for our large group, as we could all get what we wanted and eat at our own... More

The food is ok. What disturbs me the most is how many utterly disgusting things I have seen in this restaurant. The desert bar has a glass window and I glanced at one of the machines with dark brown crud caked on it. The ice cream machine was scary. I realize kids make these messy but please have staff keep...
