Many Ryan's have closed down but this one was still open. Food that should be hot was hot. Employees were refilling and cleaning the buffet regularly. Employees were clearing tables and refilling our drinks without asking. It seemed expensive for two people at weekday lunch.

We stopped in at 4 for a meal. The menu had switched to dinner so we thought everything should be fresh. We couldn't have been more wrong. The steaks were said to not be ready yet but when we got them they didn't taste fresh. The broasted chicken was over done and dry. Nothing on the bar looked appetizing. There... More

I have been to Ryan's a few times over the years and it hasn't changed at all from what I can remember. I started with a salad, which was really good. I then had some hot food, which was also good, although the fried chicken was a bit dried out. The desserts were OK, nothing special. As with any buffet,... More

From the moment my family and I walked in the door I saw a marked improvement to the cleanliness and smell of the restaurant. The food looked great and fresh. And five plates later I can tell you that it was really good. The gentleman taking care of our table was very attentive as was every staff member we encountered.... More

Sunday morning breakfast was a disaster. Food bar was depleted to the point that I stood there with a plate and said "there's nothing to eat." No pancakes, no waffles, no French toast. No fried potatoes. When I finally found a person at the grill area and asked about a waffle, the answer "oh, yeah, I gotta make some batter"... More

Place was packed and wasn't bad to eat. Paying $12 and getting a couple of steaks is a good deaL! Other food was ok . We had a good meal.

If you like to take your chances with some sort of bacteria or unknown illness then go for it. Management stinks and their cleaning habits are in need of improvement

We were staying Hanover and decided to eat here after being in Gettysburg all day. Not disappointed but they do close earlier then most. Even though I found the buffet to be fresh and food was still being cooked fresh. Its not a bad place when you are hungry and on a budget. Good to go.

This is usually a good buffet restaurant but the quality has slipped \. Food selection more limited on Sunday and some food was over cooked. Salad bar was fresh. Dessert bar limited
