Ronin features elgant farm cuisine with a constantly evolving menu. Set in the beautiful, newly-renovated historic Ice House on Main in downtown Bryan, our restaurant shares an open-air kitchen with our dining room, floor to ceiling exposed brick, and hand-built, suspension tables made from wood salvaged during renovation.

Our menu is updated daily, based on what we have harvested from our garden during that given week. Our farm is located just seven miles from our restaurant. The climate and changing seasons play a major role in what we serve. It is our intention to always provide a variety of menu options and to accommodate any dietary needs.

    Loved the overall ambiance of the restaurant. The food was all just ok- everything lacked seasoning. The bread was the best part of our meal. Service was also just ok. Our server brought us dessert menus before everyone finished their meals, and came back to take that order before everyone was finished. We felt rushed and lost interest in staying any longer.

    My daughter and I enjoyed our experience at Ronin this past weekend. The chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and broccoli were very good. My daughter’s shrimp dish was ok. The bread was also very good. We had red velvet cake for dessert, A+ for presentation but dry and bland to taste. As others have said, I was a bit put off to see a “credit card use fee” attached to my bill. The prices for the dishes are already on the high side; management should do away with this. I would recommend to try this place as it is unique; however, it won’t be my first choice for a return visit.

    We had 5:00 reservations and were seated promptly. Took a long time just to order drinks, then my drink came out wrong. The farmhouse bread was delicious. We ordered jerk chicken dinner. It was just a roasted chicken with blackeyed peas mixed with rice. It had a seasoning tasted like nutmeg or cinnamon. The greens were crispy, I am just used to greens being cooked longer. My daughter ordered a burger but didn’t like the sweet bun and only came with 5 fries. The waiter was slow and didn’t check on us very much. The water girl did a great job keeping our glasses full.

    Ordered apps because everything so good. Bread was amazing. Tempura fried mushrooms, sweet potatoes and onions were good. I’d love to have just a plate of the fried onions. The sharing and grits was delish as was the chicken fried steak. No room for dessert so had brownies to go and they’re wonderful as well. And the cocktails did not disappoint. Will define let go again.

    I always enjoy eating at farm to table restaurants, which is a defining characteristic of this restaurant and its food, and it did not disappoint! I was there for dinner, and without a doubt, the Wagyu ribeye chicken-fried steak that I had was absolutely the BEST CHICKEN FRIED STEAK I HAVE EVER EATEN! Being a life-long Texan, I have eaten many, many chicken fried steaks in my life in many different restaurants and homes, but this version was insanely delicious. So tender, just the right thickness, perfect crispy crust, perfect seasoning, and perfect gravy - all necessary for the best ever. And, the mashed potatoes were very silky and smooth and tasted just like potatoes. Plus, all at a very reasonable price! I live north of Dallas and I will consider driving the three hours + back to Bryan sometime just to eat at Ronin. The only reason I did not give five stars for food at Ronin was the brownies/chocolate chip cookies that I took out were not very sweet for my palate and certainly not as indulgent at the chicken fry. Please do not miss an opportunity to visit Ronin - you will not be disappointed!

    We loved the food. The Greek salad was wonderful. The combination of tomatoes, goat cheese, green peppers, onions and dressing were delicious. Halibut and Salmon were very good. We also ordered the honey crusted brussel sprouts. Best ever. Food was healthy. The salad and brussel sprouts were shareable large portions. We enjoyed the attention we received. View was also wonderful.

    The French toast was perfectly cooked, with a crispy exterior and a soft, fluffy interior. The strawberry syrup added a delightful burst of sweetness that complemented the toast beautifully. Every bite was a heavenly combination of flavors. The presentation was also top-notch, with the dish looking as delicious as it tasted. I would highly recommend trying the French toast with strawberry syrup at this restaurant's brunch. It's a true culinary delight that will leave you craving for more!

    I booked this for dual anniversary dinner for my parents and my birthday. On line it looked so pretty. I thought sitting outside under the stars would be so pretty. Well they sit you on the front porch. The street is directly behind you and the traffic noise is very loud and distracting and the train too. They had no open tables inside so we could not move. All four of our dinners were just “alright”. We had the lobster pasta and the salmon dish, and chicken fried steak meal. The food was bland. The salmon dish had a weird taste to it too. We all four shared bites of each others. The best part was the bread (which you pay extra for) and the crème brele’ was excellent. Overall not a good experience. The prices were high for what you actually got. We will definitely not be visiting again.

    Best thing on both our plates were the potatoes. Nice place but you get sat so close to other people that it’s impossible to not hear their conversations. May have just had a bad waiter but we didn’t get any drink refills. ATTENTION MANAGEMENT: When you charge that much for a plate, charging an extra $2.50 to pay by credit card is just tacky. If everything had been great about our visit, this would still keep us from recommending and/or returning. At least now we can warn others.

    This was my first time since The Republic was out of seating and it was disappointing and expensive. The atmosphere and staff were excellent but the food was interesting. I ordered salmon and it came in a stew. The jerk chicken was also mediocre. I’m sorry but I spent over $115 for 2 entrees and 2 drinks.

    I had been wanting to dine here for a while. Decor and ambiance is nice, But it's basically a cafeteria. Most tables are long and you sit next to others. Food was decent, but again, for the price I expected it to be better. Drink menu was limited.

    Quality of good odds definitely there… however found the bang bang shrimp to be lacking much bang, and the Chicken Fried Steak & mashed potatoes were someday bland. The cocktails were fantastic and vegetable dishes (other than mashed potatoes) were tasty.

    The food wasn’t bad, I was served undercooked chicken but they made it right and got me something else and comped the chicken dish and the replacement dish. The cocktails were good, just overall it seemed like I was paying for much more than what I was getting.

    A perfect spot for a quiet conversation with a friend! My friend LOVED her chocolate martini; and mine was their in-house creation, Winter in the Desert with Desert Door Sotol -- so perfectly balanced; boozy and smooth; full of flavor like everything else on the menu. The ambiance was amazing -- quiet enough for intimate conversation but enough noise that we were never concerned about privacy. Will definitely be back soon!

    For my visit I had an Earl Grey Sour to drink, their new Cheeseburger, and a Strawberry Apple Trifle for dessert. The drink was so refreshing and unique as I was told that it was made with earl grey vodka that they infuse in the restaurant!! I was looking forward to trying their new burger and it exceeded my expectations! The patty was flavorful, juicy and cooked to perfection. The fresh made buns were delicious and you could definitely taste the freshness of the vegetables on the burger! I was also in love with their house made sauce paired with the fries. For dessert, the strawberry apple trifle will forever be a favorite of mine! It was layered beautifully was a perfectly light dessert as I was pretty full from the burger. The flavor combination of the trifle was astonishing and I can’t wait to eat these again!
