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.

As recent transplants from out of state, been looking for great places to eat which reflect the character of the region and possess the quality we've discovered elsewhere. We're food snobs, basically. After a delicious, interesting, well-guided meal at Ronin, every box was checked. No details here -- go discover it for yourself. Then get out to the farm for one of their many special dinners. It'll make you proud of B/CS.

It was my wife and I’s anniversary and her birthday. I asked for a simple request of flowers and a hand written note for our reservation because my wife loves that kind of thing. Ronin had a rose and a note at the table when we sat down and it was perfect! The food was even better than the last time we ate there. Service was impeccable! All in all, one of my favorite places to take my wife to eat!

We had an amazing time at Ronin. The atmosphere was fun and interesting with a historical look mixed with eclectic decor. The staff was friendly and super helpful. The food was all amazing and tasty. The drinks were yummy. It was an ideal environment to build relationship with our friends. We hope to go back as many times as possible.

The food was excellent, and a good value considering how high quality. The ambiance was fantastic with low lighting and candles. The wait staff was remarkable; our waiter seemed to be very knowledgable about the restaurant, the origins of the food, and the flavor pairings that would work well, and the rest of the staff was helpful even though they weren't responsible for us. My dad has high standards and my mom is a picky eater, yet both were thoroughly satisfied with Ronin. I will be coming back very soon.

Covid dining can be an iffy, but Ronin did a great job with safety measures. We sat outside and thankfully it was a nice evening. The server was super friendly and helpful. We had the charcuterie and cheeses - all very good and fresh. I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly, and my husband had the chicken fried steak (how can you go wrong with that). All the food was fresh and flavorful. We had a great evening with great food.

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.

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.
