Love Ryan's; but I think we had a new/inexperienced waiter. He tried hard; but not seasoned so he lapsed on memorizing the specials, refilling drinks. Polite and nice though; didn't make excuses. Everyone has to start of somewhere right? Overall, great food, ambiance, and service.

Ryan's is a very comfortable place, with great food and ambiance. The servers were very nice, but seemed short-staff for the evening; there was a large party as well. My wife and I enjoyed our meal and desert. While the menu is loaded with lots of good food, it seems to be the same menu that has been around for a long time--that is both good and bad. Overall, we enjoyed our meals and the unhurried dining. I would recommend it as a place to hang out, eat good food, and catch up with a friend.

Came here for dinner for my birthday. Our host/hostess, waiter, and everyone was so friendly. The food was amazing, and I especially enjoyed the drinks. Bartender's Pomegranate Lemonade was my favorite, I'd recommend.

We usually rate Ryan’s Grill very good to excellent but not this time. It was not crowded when we arrived but no one came to wait on us & we wondered who our server was. After 15 minutes Nicholas (Nick) came by. He walked by our table several times & did not acknowledge us so we thought we must have another server. When Nicholas finally came he did not apologize for the wait. He took our order & got it wrong so we had to correct him. By the time our drinks came from the bar it was watered down. We requested bread with our drinks but it came well after our drinks, again no apology. During the diner we had to constantly remind Nicholas to get things, he is forgetful. We ordered pie for dessert and waited 15 minutes before it came. We like to dine at Ryan’s Grill & will return but if Nicholas is our server, we will ask to change tables and we will not order dessert.

Went there for Christmas Eve dinner. Food was good and service very good considering we had 8 in our party and it was a busy night. Waiter Ikaika was attentive and we were well served. Great place for casual dining.

Took the family to Ryan's for wife's birthday. We had early evening reservation (5:30), arrived on time and were seated by 5:35. Waitress was friendly and helpful, but from management perspective I couldn't understand why it seemed like her tables were spread all over different sections of restaurant because time between her stopping by was significant. To make long story short, it took 45 minutes from time we ordered until we received food. (Order was not complex: pepperoni pizza, fish sandwich w/fries, fish filet w/mashed potatoes and a chicken salad). We could see the kitchen so I know the pizza was done in 20 and under heat lamp for 20.

Our waitress must have been new - while she was a sweet girl - she did not offer any comp bread & the wait was very long for the food to come - she did not stop by to check on us or give any explanation why the delay - when we asked if we were being served soon - she apologized & said soon

Great spot for lunch. Burgers, wings, salads and several other selections are perfect noon time entrees. Service was prompt and professional. Atmosphere is casual and inviting. Perhaps most of all the location is perfect and with readily available parking (including valet with additional car washing).

Showed up at reserved time and went in immediately. Haven't been there is a few years but noticed that they still had a lot of the good ole favorites like the pea salad, French onion soup, hot Dungeness crab & artichoke dip appetizer. Their focaccia bread is still awesome! The interior looks different too. They removed the Hawaiian memorabilia and nautical/country flags. It looks sleek and more open and modern. Still a good place to gather with friends for pau hana after work or to just to have a nice meal/drinks. Always been a favorite and still is!

Had the spicy chicken Alfredo with red sauce and regretted it. Taste was awful and pasta was overcooked. My daughter had the pizza w/mushrooms. The crust was a weird white color and you could not pick it up with one hand to eat it because it was too soft. The artichoke dip had more onions than artichokes. So disappointed!

Soup & salad combination was very good. My husband had Mahi Mahi which was very tasty. Overall it was a convenient meeting spot to catch up with a friend while we were visiting the island. I'd return for happy hour when I'm back on Oahu again. Mahalo!

Went there during thanksgiving. Wanted something else than turkey and casual dining. It was busy but we got seated at our reservations time 700pm sharp. Tables are kid of tight,close together. Started with pea salad, hot artichoke dip and calamari.
All tasted good. Prime rib, steamed duck and they a a turkey plate so decided to order one just to see if it was good.
Liked the prime rib, duck and turkey plated was just ok.
Service was excitable. Xasha excellent waitress

We walked in for the first time and was surprised that it didn't have an outdoors eating area. None the less, we were seated and promptly serviced. The bread was good. I had the Huli Huli Chicken 1/2 of a whole bird on a plate. Husband had the chicken salad. All in all it was a good meal.

It was a very disappointing Thanksgiving dinner! The turkey white meat was underseasoned and too dry; the serving of gravy was stingy; and the shredded turkey dark meat prepared Kalua -style was too salty. The bland dressing ("stuffing") was mostly bread, turkey stock and sage; it was supposed to have sausage, but I found none. My dining companion's prime rib was salty beyound belief and impossible to consume; he sent it back. Food preparation at Ryan's is usually quite excellent, but it was obvious that the A-Team wasn't cooking this Thanksgiving. The pumpkin pie was delicious -- the only saving grace in an otherwise unsatisfactory holiday meal.

Ryan's is always consistent; you know what you want and you get it! Hostess friendly and inviting and servers are attentive. Took the kids and hubby for a nice lunch with a view of the park. We love the French onion soup, I had the combo with the crab artichoke sandwich (my fav), and hubby had the fish of the day. Everything was delish and we definitely will come back for more!

I have eaten here numerous times in the past years and haven't been back here for a number of years. I came here specifically for the crab and artichoke dip with the focaccia bread. I was disappointed when I got my order. First, there was not enough bread for the dip, and secondly, the bread was very dry and did not taste the freshest.
Our server was alright. She did come by to check on us and asked us how we were. We did not get a refill on our water at all that night. I also had to wave her down to get some lemon and soy sauce for my son's salmon because it didn't come with any sauce or condiments. Not even a lemon was on the plate.

Appreciate their discount for Blaisdell events. However, the servers don't seem to be helpful about which dishes will take the least time to prepare, so we ended up late to the 8:00 concert even though we had a 6 pm reservation. This is also the second time it took almost longer to get the bill and finish up than to wait for dinner. What's up with that?
