I try to go to ruans at least 1 time a week there is always a great variety to choose from and the desert bar cannot be beat, the restaurant staff is friendly and food plentiful, the place was clean , and a good value

Many people avoid buffets for the obvious reasons...they tend to eat too much. I am typically the same way but I try and make an exception for Ryan's in Rome since my brother from NE Alabama likes to meet me there for lunch to eat. We were celebrating his 65th birthday on this occasion. The manager, Christina, met me at... More

It's cheap to eat here but you get what you pay for - cheap food. Service was the high point. I have found a wide diversity in the Ryan's I have visited and this one is near the bottom. The food was plain. The fish sticks were straight out of the 50's frozen food. The canned pineapple looked like it... More

My husband and I always say we're not going back because the food sucks. But we end up going back thinking maybe it will be better. We went today and again we were disappointed with the food and the selection. I do have to say the waitresses try really hard but the management and the cooks need to be replaced

As I stated in the title, this is typical buffet standards. Yes they have sneeze guards but nothing to keep kids or adults from putting their hands to close to the food and even touching the food at times. Food is too salty. Will I eat here again? No.

I decided to give this place one last shot since it was so good in the past. Wrong. Waste of money. The food here is so bad, when they take your money they should be arrested for theft. All the food on the bar was dry and tasteless. Ive never seen a floor this dirty in a restaurant. The dessert... More

I'll start by saying that mangement should be in jail. The selling of such horrible food should be against the law. I have eaten here about once a year for probably 25 years. The past ten years its gone down hill so bad, I wouldnt even eat here if it was free. There wasnt much food on the food bar... More

Ryan's has gotten better with the selections. The new salad options are a great addition. The hot foods can be a hit or miss. The staff is friendly. I just wish the place would undergo remodel. The dining area looks old and tired, the carpet beyond any help. The bathrooms just are sad.

We went for lunch and was greeted by the manager. He made us feel welcome. We found a table and were greeted by our server, Sissy. She was a true southern gem. She made sure our sweet tea was always full and brought us hot rolls with honey butter. These could be desert by themselves. Sissy kept checking to see... More
