  • I would rather cook then go to Ryan's.

    Jan 19, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Eat until you are bursting your sides.
    Cons: Temperature not correct. You may get sick.

    Summary: If you paid me to go to Ryan's restaurant, I would say 'No thank you'. I am not at all surprised that one of the two local restaurants went out of business. The company has been around since 1977, starting in South Carolina. ... read more

    Pros: decent selection, nice buildng layout, decent lunch pricing
    Cons: dinner pricing steep, can be tricky for sensitive people

    Summary: Ryan's update for 2.26.11: We went there for dinner on 2.26.11 and it was really good this time! I did notice there were a few odd smells around, but we managed to find a place without many smells so it worked out I guess. I got some red skinned ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ryan's has a HUGE selection of foods and inexpensive prices. Courteous and prompt service
    Cons: A little chaotic due to the crowds and self service.

    Summary: If you're really hungry and want to eat inexpensively, Ryan's is a great choice. The ALL you can eat MEGA-BAR is priced around $8.99 and includes everything from soup to nuts! The restaurant itself is far from fancy. It is huge and ... read more

  • Enough Food ... but not worth it.

    Jun 8, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The staff, the atmosphere, the table space.
    Cons: The food was pretty gross?

    Summary: I hadn't eaten all day and so I was in the mood for some buffet. So, I passed a Ryan's which I had never been to before. It's a step-up from Golden Corral, in my opinion, which has some of the worst commercialized buffet food ever. For instance, the ... read more

  • Ryan's - All the Mediocre Food You Can Eat!

    Jul 24, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some items were very tasty, I got my steak and dessert, inexpensive
    Cons: Bustly atmosphere, some items weren't refilled quickly, a few yucky foods

    Summary: I am not very experienced with the “all-you-can-eat buffet.” My family never, ever went to one when I was growing up, and I have been only a handful of times since then. On Saturday, my husband and I wanted steak. We are saving for vacation ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, cheap, cheap and lots food on Mega Bar!
    Cons: Lots of starches, food nothing special.

    Summary: We have several locations of Ryan's in the metro Baton Rouge area. When they first opened they were an immediate hit. The place was packed no matter which location you went to. Now, several years later the popularity has worn off and several ... read more

    Pros: Even the pickiest of people could find something to eat!
    Cons: You get stuffed! I'm sorry I mean STUFFED!!

    Summary: My family and I like going to Ryan's. Our kids even like to go there which is strange because the normally they want the greasy burgers. We normally get the mega-bar and everyone is pleased. There have only been a couple of times that we were ... read more

    Pros: Good service, clean bathrooms, & nice people
    Cons: Salad greens not fresh! Silverware was not clean! stuck to some it...had to be replaced...TWICE!

    Summary: The steaks were very good, the appetizers were very good...the salad was less than fresh! Attention to detail is lacking here. Less than clean silverware was presented with bits of food still stuck to it even though it had been washed. On a scale of 1-10 ... read more

    Pros: Huge selection of food.
    Cons: Crowds, crowds, crowds.

    Summary: My family and I used to go to Ryan's quite often. But then my children got a bit older and decided they didn't like it much any longer. We did try it again a few weeks ago. Ryan's is best known for its buffets. You can get ... read more

    Pros: Great Steaks, variety of hot buffet items, great salad bar selections
    Cons: The waiting in line, rude customers

    Summary: I love Ryan's steaks. That chargrilled taste always gets me going. The only problem with Ryan's is that everyone is there for the bargain of all you can eat. I can see doing that but most of the customers (98%) seem to have been overdoing the all you can ... read more

    Summary: Ryans Family Steakhouse a large 300+ chain in the Southeast has great food but for people that like to order from the grill it is not fair! If you order from the grill and want a small side salad you have to pay almost $4.00 on Steak and Shrimp ... read more

    Pros: Cheap
    Cons: Cheap

    Summary: Ryan's has got to be one of the worst restaurants ever created. OK, it's no Duff's Smorgasbord, but...I can stay in my own house and open a can of corn or green beans. That's about what you get at Ryan's these days. I remember growing up thinking that ... read more
