Company History

Since founder Alvin A. McCall opened the first Ryan's® restaurant in 1977, Ryan's has enjoyed much success, receiving several top accolades such as one of the "Best Small Companies in America" seven years in a row. In addition, Ryan's has been named the "Top Family Steakhouse in America" for 10 years straight.

It's no wonder with Ryan's® delicious grill selections and variety of hot vegetables, fresh salad bar and sumptuous dessert bar that serve more than 75 million customers every year.

Most recently, Ryan's® joined Buffets, Inc. This venture adds more than 300 buffet restaurants in 23 states to the Ryan's family. Now you're sure to find a restaurant in your neighborhood and wherever your travels may take you.
