Diner Reviews
  • "We went to Ryan's Grill for a farewell lunch for a coworker. The food was amazing! I liked the fact that they had classic American food but gave it delicious new twist. The prices were reasonable and portion sizes were more than enough. I ordered the french onion soup! It was the best I have ever had! I've already told my husband that he is going to take me there soon!"

  • "For the first time, we opted to dine in the Happy Hour lounge section of the restaurant and ordered off the pupu menu. We had the potstickers (excellent), the crab & artichoke dip (dip was excellent, the bread, not so much), kalua pork spring rolls (again, excellent), and calamari katsu (they should change the sauce). The prices were reasonable, and the quantity was just right for two people. We'll be baaaaaack."

  • "We had not seen each other for months and wanted to celebrate one of our birthdays, belatedly. Ryan's Grill turned out to be the perfect spot to meet and eat and talk and catch up on each others' lives. The birthday "girl" seemed pleased with her meal and crème Brulee for dessert."

  • "Great for groups. Use Open Table for ease of reservations! Service is good, friendly hostesses and waiters. Bartenders are the best. Food selection is good, but dishes need more flavoring. Too boring."

  • "Although we tipped 15%, service was fair. Server forgot to bring bread and did not come by for awhile to check on us. The food was ok. We were in a group and the consensus was that we would probably not go back to Ryan's again. Sorry...."

  • "Ordered the seared Opah for the first time, and it was yummy! Natalie, our server, was very attentive, even when she had several tables to serve. The wasabi mashed potatoes were interesting, but I couldn't finish them. Hubby especially enjoyed the guava/tamarind sauce on his BBQ ribs. He cleaned his plate. It was a beautiful day and the sunset was very romantic---postcard perfect. Will definitely be back, and often."

  • "Had a great meal here, but not sure if I'd go out of my way to eat there again. The atmosphere was mediocre and the service was fine."

  • "Fun mojito drinks, only had pupu food, was great. Went early so not crowded. Loved table next to window with ocean/Ala Moana Park view. Old time favorite place to go. Great location, good parking, been going there every so often for 20 years."

  • "Ryan's is like the local style Ruby Tuesday, in a good way. They have really good food for decent prices. The service is okay, I think it depends on what time you go (we went around 6:30PM). Great for kids. It's noisy so your kids can yell and scream and not really disturb the others around you."

  • "Probably my favorite restaurant. I am never disappointed in the service or the food. It's good for groups or just two diners. I like the fact they they offer different menu items, as well as retaining their favorites (like the 3 salad sampler). Plus they are pretty flexible about making adustments to the food based on your preferences. (I am allergic to molds and seafood, so they will sub another serving of chicken salad in place of the maytag blue cheese salad in the 3 salad sampler) Our glasses are always filled. If our server is busy elsewhere, someone steps in to help. And they never try to rush us out the door, so old friends have a lot of time to catch up."

  • "I like Ryan's, venturing there at least twice to three times a month. It's in my neighborhood, convenient. The food is not bad. It's not gourmet, bit they do have some nice dishes as entrees. I usually find the fish to be very good. Of course, they are known for thei Happy Hour/bar menu, which is our "go to" eats. However, every so often we eat off the dinner menu. The only issue I had food wise was their rice. It was not what your typical local rice tastes like. It was like they used a pot on the stove to make it, not a rice cooker. Other than that the food was ok. I've had the pizza in the past and it was good as well. My suggestion, order fries as a substitute!"

  • "Went there for lunch. New item off of their fresh sheet was a pastrami & hamburger sandwich. You got it, a cooked to order hamburger patty, with pastrami slices above and below it. Then they add melted swiss cheese and sauerkraut. It really were my two favorite sandwiches in one."

  • "we had the absolute best service by Shenie. Wanted window seating for 4th of July on short notice - done. Wanted to change order from one salad to another - no problemo. Focaccio bread was nice and warm for seared ahi salad. Steak was overcooked but tender; so she had it replaced without our asking. It was my birthday and she brought me an haupia brulee - ono! I ordered a bottle of red wine, she brought it in an ice bucket - wonderful. How good does it get! Mahalo!!"

  • "The service was not very good on this visit. We have been several times and this was disappointing. Sunday evening is free kids meals with adult purchases so it is a good time to go with a family. The happy hour house red wine was decent. The happy hour pupus were mixed. The chicken and pork lettuce wraps were not good. The calamari was ample and delicious."

  • "Wonderful service by the hostess and wait staff. Great Waldorf and three bean salads. PONZU sauce for the KAJIKI was exceptional as were the green beans."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Ryan's Grill is one of our very favorite places for a casual dinner with friends. The great selection of food and beverage means everyone can find something to suit their taste buds. Seating in the dining area is close enough to the bar to get a nice feeling of activity and sufficiently separated to allow for a sound level that suits conversation."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The menu has changed since the last time I had gone. The changes are okay - with the happy hour menu. I am so glad they still kept the Jamaican Jerk Fries. The buffalo wings that I love have changed a little but they are still yummy. I was disappointed to find that the pot stickers are now deep fried. I miss that gyoza style and the shoyu based sauce. Other than that - things were still fun as we celebrated our wedding anniversary a day early."

  • "Ryan's Grill is well worthy of a great review. Everything I ordered for dinner had an interesting twist to it, and I mean that in a good way. The onion soup was great, not salty like many restaurants. The brandy and dry vermouth gave the soup a special flavor. The calamari was cooked to perfection and the Black Bean Aioli dipping sauce was unlike anything I've ever had. And finally, the ribs were some of the best I have ever had. The meat was very tender and the Guava-Tamarind glaze on the ribs was fantastic. If you are interested in having great food and are looking for something other than just another boring menu, Ryan's is for you."

  • "My wife and I use to go every Friday for lunch and drinks. Then their food started coming out inconsistent,their service was always friendly. We just went for Father's day brunch, service was friendly and attentive. But their food was outstanding. Best locomoco and my wife's steak was great. Will be going back soon"

  • "Busy night for me and my date. However, Ryan's was able to accommodate switching my dinner time around. It was crowded and loud but we could still talk to with other. Loved it, loved the food. Will definitely recommend to friends."

  • "They were under-staffed the evening we were there. Our server managed to take care of all the tables, efficiently, attentively, speedily. The friendly manager was attentive to our issues - even did not charge for my entree. Just wish the quality of the food matched the quality of service. But. . . fine for families and casual, non-special occasions. "

  • "It was sad from the moment we checked in with the hostess. The staff has poor listening skills. Although I mentioned we had a reservation and we wanted a late lunch; she escorted us to the bar. I questioned why the lunch area was not available; she stated she didn't know we wanted lunch. ???? As we were seated at the table, our waitress asks us to order (when clearly she just gave us the menu and we stated that we probably will order a bottle of wine) she stood there waiting for over 1 minutes just staring and waiting. I hate it when waitress/waiters do this. We ignored her and continued to read the wine list and narrowing down what we would be ordering and which wine would go best. Later she brings two "glasses" of red wine. ???"

  • "Meaning to try this place for MONTHS and somehow I always end up going elsewhere. What a mistake that was as Ryan's is an AWESOME spot! Food is full of flavor and the range of options is vast. It's great to eat local-style food prepared in such a way where you don't feel disgusting afterwards. Lettuce wraps were the best I've had and I only wish the portion was larger. They give you probably 20 wraps but barely any chicken and pork! Prices good, service on point and overall an awesome spot that's just as good for dinner as it is happy hour!"

  • "First, the food was very good. The waiter was forgetful with requests several times. He was very nice but I do expect better. We have eaten here a few times before and had good service so we will be back again."
