Nick Ryan's Saloon
Great BD DinnerWonderful evening with my husband and son. Wine special and beer selections were great; soup, salads, bread, butter:), fries, mussels, pork chops & polenta, and dessert were all amazing. Though my salad came w/o a dressing (I ordered it on the side), it was quickly provided. Our water glasses we frequently filled...a nice service.Our waiter was young, but really nice, attentive and fun. We LOVE Nick Ryan's and take out-of-town guests often!! Kudos!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there--wonderfulFirst time there--wonderful food--good service served by congenial and friendly wait staff. We will definitely go back!

Our server Matt was fabulous and the food was well-prepared and very tssty!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFun night with friends! FoodFun night with friends! Food was delicious! Service was wonderful! Highly recommend Nick Ryan's!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a pre-event dinner.I visited early on a friday evening with two friends. I made a reservation on-line (a little confusing at first as the web page did not load properly at first), which was convenient. I didn't find a number to call if I had questions or wanted to make reservations in person.
The restaurant has a nice vibe, inside and out. The rehabilitation of Jefferson St. is well on its way!
We had a nice selection of microbrewery beers. Bread arrived after a bit of a wait.The server assured us that if we were going to an event (which we were), that he would speed things up for us. We tried the catfish breaded in cornmeal (very tender) and the grouper (delicious), and enjoyable desserts.
Overall a relaxed, pleasant experience with time to spare.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe location was easy to findThe location was easy to find and just a bit off the beaten trail so it felt like going someplace really different. The greeting was cordial. We were seated in the bar area, which was perfect for two friends to feel comfortable just catching up and eating a bite. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. I had a glass of 2010 Kendall Jackson Reserve Chardonnay. Not fancy, but a good, consistent white wine perfect for lunch. The crab cake also was good. Living now on the coast of Georgia, I couldn't give it an excellent rating because it was more breaded and crustier than I prefer, but it was served beautifully on asparagus with an excellent sauce around the curve of the plate. An extremely good experience and I would definitely go back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm glad I found this newI'm glad I found this new restaurant.

we enjoyed our lunch3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat first time, better the secondOur second visit to this wonderful restaurant reinforced our enthusiasm. Although two weeks had passed since our last visit to this bustling place, the serving staff remembered us and even remembered the wine that we had liked on our previous visit, making special effort to find us another excellent vintage. Every dish was delicious and well presented; however the greatest surprise came at the end of our meal. We would have paid far more than the very reasonable charge for our party of four that it asked. Another nice feature is that the wide variety of menu offerings and specials means that we'll have many new choices for our future meals.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing restaurant - food,Amazing restaurant - food, service and atmosphere are all spectacular.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
