One of the best restaurants in W-SI've been to Ryan's a few times now, and have never been disappointed. The food, ambience, and service are always impeccable. I've never been disappointed.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodGreat food. A bit pricey but worth the cost for special occasions.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you are looking for a placeIf you are looking for a place to have an excellent meal served by a professional and friendly staff in a quiet and comfortable setting...you must visit Ryan's.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOur eveningWe were there to celebrate our 25th anniversary. A cozy table in the back by the window had been reserved for us. The service, food and ambiance were exceptional - meeting all our expectations. Ryan's is definitely the place for special occasions! Would recommend to anyone wanting to have an upscale, comfortable and elegant dining experience.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!The food is always consistently great tasting and the restaurant offers a wonderful, relaxed environment. The setting makes me think of being in the mountains.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMrustic ambience in the cityRyan's has the feel of a restaurant you might drive 20 miles out of the city for. The wooded view and the dimly lit, terraced dining room definitely set the mood for a classy steakhouse dining experience. We tried a combination of seafood appetizers, steak, and duck for dinner along with a great bottle of Malbec. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection. The staff was friendly and formal without being too "stuffy". Our only complaint was sitting near the kitchen, which was sort of a hangout area for the observant and attentive waitstaff. Not bad.. just a little noisy at times.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable meal celebratingEnjoyable meal celebrating our son's graduation. Menu has a nice selection. Everyone enjoyed their meal, fair portions, also a nice wine selection to choose from. Deserts were unbelievably delicious.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food could not have beenThe food could not have been better. Had the sea bass--perfection. Our waitress made nice recommendations on both appetizers and alternative sauces for the entree.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent service and foodWe were a party of seven, including one 17 month old child. One of our party was in a cast with a broken wrist and had basically no use of her right hand. The waiter (Jeremy) was terrific. He was sensitive to the needs of the child and his parents and got his order into the kitchen early. He was also very sensitive and very politely offered assistance to my sister in law who had the broken wrist. He cut up her salad. The food was excellent, as always. We had requested a window table and we had a great view. Very enjoyable dinner.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall Great RestaurantRyan's is great from the lovely entrance with water feature and rhododendrons in bloom, to the cheese and crackers at the bar while waiting on the party members to arrive, great appetizer choices, wonderful variety of entrees. My favorites are the view (like you are sitting in the woods) and the berries in the caramel nut basket!!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMreservation was fast and helpful.reservation was fast and helpful. Food was perfect.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRyans for Mothers DayWhat a truly outstanding meal. The steaks melted in our mouth. I coult not ask for a better dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRyan's RocksThis is NOT the national chain Ryan's that offers the buffets and the low quality steaks from a 40 year old cow. This Ryan's is an upscale restaurant offering great steaks, seafood, and chops.
- Great place for steaks. Ruth's Chris and Morton's are slightly better but Ryan's is still great.
- Great place for impressing business clients, anniversaries, and special occasions
- Good wine list
- Service was very good. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu.
- Love the building with its large windows showing the woods. Fantastic ambience.
- Highly recommend this place5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectRyan's was a perfect place to take my wife and Mother out for Mother's Day. Often people get it confused with the Ryan's that has the buffeet, but it is far nacer than that restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayDisappointed that they were out of the Lobster bisque and Sea Bass special. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and the mashed potatoes were a hit. Service was good quality and informative.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCalifornia vistiorsWe were in town visiting from San Francisco, CA over Mothers Day and decided on Ryan's in Winston Salem for Mother's Day 2013. Started off with a cocktail at the small bar before being seated. We were greeted by our server, Sydney, who started us off with a great southern smile and positive upbeat attitude. Mother's Day was hectic and we were eating late so we knew she had a tough evening. Our meal was terrific, we never toughted the wine bottle, Sydney was on the spot to refill our glasses. Will definitely return to Ryans on our next visit to the area.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time. The foodWe had a great time.

The prime filet was outstanding as was the salmon dish - very enjoyable5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful in all respects!This was the second time visiting Ryans. We were in the area moving our daughter home from Wake Forest. Took her and her boyfriend for dinner. Spinach salad was great. Large enough to share. Scallop appetizer with bacon was so delicious. All really enjoyed the steaks cooked to perfection and flavorful. The delicious Grouper tasted freshly caught was a hit. Sinful desserts. May I suggest the pecan pie and the homemade carrot cake. Service was impeccable and every table was filled. Looking forward to going back for Parent's weekend in October. Request a window table. The view in quite charming.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingLove this restaurant. The entrance is charming, tucked away int eh rhodendron. Lovely view over the creek with the lighted bridge.

She had chosen this because she loves the food and atmosphere of Ryan's. She actually had a family birthday meal there for her 16th birthday. Our family likes Ryan's for special occasion meals. She said she had a wonderful time and that the service was super. Thank you for helping create special memories for Abbey and her friends!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRyan's was great dinner spotI made reservations using OpenTable without a hitch. When we arrived our table was waiting for us. The menu has changed separating out salad from the previous menu which included a salad with steak dinners. I found the prices were on the high side but the food was excellent.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Food Find!Tucked away in the least likely corner of Winston-Salem is this gem of a joint. Good food, served extremely well in a relaxing environment. Looking forward to a return engagement.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb food and serviceRyan's is a locally-owned upscale restaurant -- it's _not_ Ryan's the cafeteria chain.
One of the few places in the area serving Oysters Rockefeller as an appetizer. The food and service are always superb.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest wine list around - awesomeBest wine list around - awesome selection and fairly priced.

Food was excellent with a relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest fine dining in the Triad!!!We have always enjoyed dining at Ryan's and this was no exception. I made a reservation on "Open Table" and asked if it was possible to have a table at a window as it was our anniversary. Not only did they honor that request, but when we were finished with the meal, the waiter came out with two huge, beautiful cupcakes in honor of our anniversary!! Totally unexpected as we never mentioned it except on our reservation. Ryan's continues to be our favorite for fine dining!!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was Mark, who wasOur server was Mark, who was outstanding and very friendly. The food was perfectly prepared.

Everything was fabulous from the food, wine list, ambiance and service. Top notch - I highly recommend this restaurant.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful fine-dining restaurant!I am new to Winston Salem, and have been trying to find quality restaurants in the area, since moving here. Ryan's Restaurant is definitely what I have been looking for. The atmosphere is sophisticated, yet comfortable. There are smaller dining areas throughout, which makes for a nice dining experience. The service was excellent and the wine selection was vast with a variety of great wines. The food, in general, was well prepared and presented, with the exception of our salads, which did not appear too fresh and were significantly over-dressed. We both had steaks, cooked to our preferences, with baked potatoes followed by a delicious, in-house prepared dessert - excellent! We will definitely return!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent restaurant withexcellent restaurant with a nice atmosphere. We are definitely going back.
