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.

What a wonderful all around experience! Our server (Jason) was attentive and fun. We loved his energy. I had the scallops and my daughter had the pho - both delicious. Four gigantic delicious scallops cooked to perfection. For dessert, we had the watermelon soufflé with ice cream - wow!! Great happy hour specials too!!! We will be back for sure!

Returned for Brunch after a wonderful dinner the night before. Ordered a cup of coffee and a mimosa to accompany an order of beignets and sourdough pancakes! Again some wonderful suggestions made by EJ who we saw the night before. Looking forward to reserving a spot for the full moon dinners at the farm.

I had the pleasure of dining at Ronin for Friday happy hour as well as Sunday brunch while visiting friends for the weekend and both experiences were wonderful! The food, the ambiance, and the service were all 5 star. The Jalapeño Poppers and the Seasoned Potato Chips at happy hour were so delicious that I craved them all weekend after trying them! Also, I loved that they have an extensive cocktail list that includes creative and fresh drinks! RONIN RESTAURANT did not disappoint!

They pitch farm fresh but most dishes are fried or contain Wheat flour... no gluten free options or vegetarian options.... paid 17$ for a you call it cocktail.... 2 drinks and shared a charcuterie board , not worth 85$ including tip, but the ambience of the old building Is nice

My night at Ronin was wonderful! A Friend and I were looking for a safe night out and Ronin delivered. The food was wonderful! Our waiter EJ was so helpful, he made great suggestions on our entrees and drinks for the night. We chose the popular chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and a variety of drinks. The staff was very friendly and the overall atmosphere was very pleasant. Will absolutely be returning for their brunch.

My husband took me and my daughter on a date to Ronin. The atmosphere was beautiful. The drinks were yummy. The food was delicious. My fried chicken batter was very tasty and my husband enjoyed his Pho. Our waiter seemed a little inexperienced and we had to wait a little longer than expected for each course. Overall, we enjoyed the experience and will be back.

Not a place for a romantic date at all. Our reservation said we were celebrating an anniversary, but we were still put at the end of their longest group seating table, right next to the kitchen door. Then we had to request to move because the air conditioner kept dripping water on our heads and back. Also, the view of the chef playing with a large pile of some kind of meat trimmings was not pleasant. It must not have have been for any actual food (I hope), because it sat there for over 45 min. Of the 5 entrees they offered on the menu, we each ordered something different, but they were out of both of them, so we settled for the fried chicken. They must have also been running low on chicken, because one of my pieces was literally just fried skin. The other pieces weren’t anything special, just something I could have made in my own kitchen. The only dish that was good was the jalapeño poppers, which were very fresh and cooked very well. That is the only reason they got 2 stars for the food. Our server was very sweet and did the best she could. They did comp the appetizer and a parfait for dessert (also only average) but I’m afraid we won’t ever go back.

AMAZING HAPPY HOUR. Literally every day they are open from 5-6pm. The cocktails are out of this world AND they’re half off during happy hour. We also tried some of the $5 bar snacks that they serve all night long. Specifically really enjoyed the whiskey daisy and the jalapeño poppers. Staff is super friendly and accommodating. The entire experience was stellar. We will definitely be coming back.

Food and drinks were excellent and it's evident that a lot of thought is put into every detail. Service is outstanding. All employees were in masks and I saw thorough cleaning of surfaces between customers. I look forward to my Ronin fix when I am in town to see my daughter! The new cocktails are an added bonus.

It has been a few months since we have ventured out and actually sat down for dinner at a restaurant, and we couldn't have made a better choice.

The new full bar and $5 bar snacks are awesome. We really enjoyed our salad to start with a blueberry-citrus dressing.

For our entrees, we really enjoyed the pho, but the pork tacos totally stole the show. Tortillas were light and fluffy, and the meat was 💯

Dessert sealed a perfect evening out. Eliza Young is the best pastry chef I know. The milk and cookies were reliably great, but we were blown away by the blueberry-cheesecake parfait.

10/10 can't wait to go back!

We ate outside for Father's Day brunch - food was amazing. This is the only place where quail actually seems satisfying, the shrimp dish with peaches and beets was incredible, and we always love the cheese plate and beignets, but they were particularly great this time with the pickled watermelon rinds on the cheese plate and blueberry-caramel sauce with the beignets. Only thing that would have made it better is one of their souffles!

We drove from Houston to dine at Ronin. Having been introduced to Ronin through the moonlight dinners we were excited when they opened the restaurant in Bryan. As always, the food, service and atmosphere are fantastic. Brian and Amanda have stayed true to their farm-to-table vision and it shows in the passion they put into each dish.
If you are anywhere near Bryan/College Station you owe it to yourself to experience this truly unique restaurant.
