About Ryan's Restaurant
Enjoy the panoramic view of large oaks and a rolling stream from the many window-side tables, or the large, starlight deck. Or, savor the intimate atmosphere from a comfortable sofa, and in the winter, the warmth of a crackling fireplace.
Ryan's Chef creates a tantalizing selection of appetizers such as jumbo lump crabmeat, steamed mussels in garlic butter and white wine, and oysters Rockefeller. Entrees range from thick, juicy steaks and prime rib to the finest grilled fresh fish and live Maine lobster. Choose from the regular menu or from a superb selection of specials offered nightly. Add a cappuccino and a freshly made dessert to seal the dining experience.
Ryan's offers just the right taste with just the right touch. The restaurant has been locally owned and under the same management since 1981. Ryan's has been awarded the Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence" and is often featured in national publications.

Everything we had was just great. Our waiter was a super nice guy who took care of everything. My steak was done just the way I like and my wife's grouper was outstanding as well. It was our anniversary and totally enjoyed this occasion. Thanks for a great meal and the complimentary desserts.

Well I asked for my steak to medium well, but it was well done and burnt. Then our friends that were dining with us ordered a pork chop anand it wasn't done, and had to be cooked more. The Chef did cook me another steak, and offered deserts, but the good dining experience was out the door after that. The meal cost way to much to encounter those types of obstacles.

We had visited Ryan's on a previous trip to the Winston Salem area and thought it was outstanding. We were anxious to go back and have the same experience, but we were disappointed in our dining experience.
The server was more interested in his table of six than our table for two. The salad was warm and not chilled. The filet did was not up to the standard we expect from a fine dining establishment. The baked potato was the highlight of the meal. It was hot and encrusted with salt.
It was not busy at all, so maybe the locals already know what we found out on our visit on Friday night.

The sirloin was on par with the best steak I had ever had in my life. Right up there with Telluride, Colorado's Chop House. I was impressed. We were seated in the back along with a large party when there were other seats available in the main two "rooms" of the restaurant - had speak up to be heard with all of the hard surfaces in the back room. That was the only knock. Dessert was great as well.

Brian was our server, he was wonderful! New the menu well and provided excellent service! The bacon wrapped appetizer was delicious She crab soup was one of the best I've had. We both had the prime rib and it was tender juicy and cooked to perfection.!

Ryan's steakhouse was a fantastic experience. Food was exceptional and the ambiance was amazing for a first date/anniversary. The Hostess station was not as receptive to requested seating, however the overall experience was amazing! Highly recommend to anyone!

This restaurant has been here for many years but it never disappoints. Our server was very busy so another server would fill in & help so that was great. Food was exceptional. Appetizers was a crab cake, salad & she crab bisque to die for. I2 of our 4 had steak & said it was perfect. We don't get that often. My friend had Mahi Mahi & said was wonderful. I had sea bass & it was perfect. It was pricey so we will probably go for special occasions.

Dined at Ryan's for first time on an anniversary and were seated by a window with a lovely view. The oysters were outstanding. The crab cake, just ok. It contained beautiful lumps of meat but the cake itself had too much going on. At $33/#, the enormous Maine lobsters made for expensive entrees but they were delicious and expertly prepared. Absolutely no regrets. The asparagus was perfect, the starches (gouda grits and pommes frites) were fine. I would try different sides next time. The service was efficient and courteous but perhaps not as elegant or sophisticated as I would have expected to compliment the high menu prices. I would go again to try the steak au poive, the weekend prime rib, or just to have a martini and oysters. Ryan's might become our anniversary spot.

John Earl was a fantastic waiter! He was not only humorous, but also assured we had everything we needed. The food was top notch, and a good value for the money! The atmosphere was very pleasing for a gathering with relatives for a special occasion!

Great find on TripAdvsior. The seating area is unique and everyone gets a great view. View of the woods is nice and it feels secluded. Would happily go again when I I'm back in town. Great wait staff and delicious food.

We choose Ryan's when we're seeking a perfect dining experience—and they never disappoint. Superlative service, exceptional food, excellent cocktails, a stellar wine list and attention to detail across the board. These are the least common denominators when you dine at Ryan's.
Great birthday dinner with friends
Ryan's has a wonderful dining room overlooking a quaint forest/garden scene with little while lights in the trees. Even though they are positioned as an upscale steakhouse, my vegetarian friend found lots of good options in the list of sides. I ordered the filet which was delicious and our other friend got the prime rib which was also outstanding. Since it was a special occasion, I elected to bring a special bottle of wine from home - corkage policy is $15 per regular 750ml bottle.
