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.

We ate out on the front porch due to the pandemic, and it was perfection. It was raining so the deep overhang of the roof kept us completely dry. It was nice and quiet (except for the random car in a hurry driving by) even with another couple just across the way. The food was incredible - everything we tried. We had the shishito peppers, garden salad, tempura vegetables, bread and butter, butternut squash, and pumpkin soufflé.

The food and environment was 5/5 stars. You can’t find a better food restaurant in the BCS area with more quality food. The servers are amazing and very helpful on deciding what to get on the menu. I love ronin!!!

My daughter and I enjoyed the variety of cocktails and wines offered! The homemade bread was amazing too. I had the carne guisada which was tender but I felt it was lacking the traditional spices which make it a Mexican staple. The flour tortillas served with it were delicious! My daughter had the oxtail Pho and she said it was good but also seemed to be missing some spices. The pumpkin spice soufflé was just amazing to end our meal! My compliments to the pastry chef!! Our server was friendly and attentive but not overbearing!! All in all would highly recommend

Brunch was great! However we had 3 college students with us so it’s definitely too eclectic and portions too small for that age group.
Service was great and absolutely loved the ambiance! It’s 100% farm to table and everything was fresh and delicious! Definitely pricy for what you get ($12 mimosas are a bit extreme for anywhere... especially a college town)! I would definitely go back, sans kids!!

We sat outside. Our waitress was new and made sure to tell us all the beers on taps. We ended up sharing bread, a few cocktails and the spaghetti squash and carne asada. Everything was fresh and perfectly cooked. They also gave us a free pumpkin spice dessert. I usually come here once every other month and am never disappointed.

Brilliant service, the servers remember us and what we like to drink even after only a few visits. Food is fresh and nicely presented, there are gluten-free items on the menu and alternatives upon request. Live music in the bar doesn't take over but adds to the ambiance.

Our waitress Zoe, was so kind and great at serving us! The food was delicious and we love that it is farm to table style. The restaurant is decorated very homey and beautiful.

The prices were high for the amount of food you get. The noise level from the staff was very loud and it felt like they were all rushing around. Our reservation was for 5:30pm, and rush hour didn't start until we were leaving. This made it not worth the amount of money because we felt like paying $25 per plate should include a peacful environment.

We loved our dinner at Ronin! We went on a Thursday and it was very quiet and perfect for a romantic dinner for two. Hannah Epps was our server and bartender and she did a fantastic job at both. We will surely be coming again for our next date night, can’t recommend it enough.

We enjoyed this farm to table restaurant for my wife’s birthday for our family of five. Our first venture out to a nice restaurant in many months. Ambiance and live music were awesome. Safe distances from others. Food was great and very unique menu. I thought the prices were about 20% higher than they should have been. Charging for bread, seems overkill when everything else is expensive. Last minor point, I mentioned it was my wife’s bday on the Open Table reservation Notes and it even asks if there is a special occasion being celebrated, and I selected birthday. But there was no mention of this or any extras during our meal. That is an attention to detail, that you expect when paying these prices.

We were so impressed with our first visit to Ronin! The service is unbelievable, a true cast of team workers that had everything covered, regardless of whether it was their table or not. The food was fantastic, my husband had the chicken fried Wagyu steak. Amazing. My chicken, sweet potatoes and okra were amazing as well. Only small thing was I didn't like the random cuts on the chicken...made it hard to eat. I did express this to our server at the end, meaning only to be constructive. I prefer my chicken cut the traditional cuts, thigh,leg, breast etc. Overall the meal and cocktails were amazing, and a great value as well. We will be back for sure.

An outstanding cocktail menu and program. We would recommend you start with a cocktail at the bar before dinner. Wine list has some interesting Texas wines. Food was great; chicken fried steak was among the best I’ve had. Enjoy this restaurant, it’s worth the visit.

Ronin is a hidden gem. I spent about a week in Bryan and this was the best place I visited by far. Food, ambience, staff: all of it was terrific.

I ordered several of the small-plates/starters. The soy-glazed potatoes with onion were delicious. The jalapeño poppers--fried in breadcrumb, served with house made ranch--were good also (though they could've used a touch more salt). And the salad with grilled vegetables was great.

The staff were friendly, quick, and helpful. I stayed for probably 3 hours and they were there the whole time. The beer and cocktail menu was spectacular also.

Oh ya, they just so happened to be doing Seinfeld trivia that night, which was an added bonus!

I highly recommend Ronin. If I'm anywhere in the area, I plan on going back.

I came in for brunch & a Bloody Mary, and needless to say I was not disappointed. The service was amazing. The bar manager Danielle took the time to talk about some of their rare/special wines! I ended up leaving with a retail bottle to try this week. If you need a brunch spot, or just a charming place for a meal I’d always suggest ronin! One of the servers mentioned Seinfeld trivia this week & I’m so excited to come.
