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 were celebrating our daughter’s PhD at what we thought was a nice restaurant. The service was terrible - not enough menus, drinks weren’t refilled, food was cold - and this place is expensive. Won’t go back.

    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!

    From start to finish our meal and experience was five GOLD stars!!! The starter was the charcuterie, our main was the shrimp and handmade pasta. Our dessert was TO DIE FOR!!! We had the London Fog soufflé. We enjoyed every minute of our time and meal! We will definitely be back, no question!!

    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!

    Took our group of five here and it was perfect. There’s something for everyone on the menu, we all loved the cheese board and oysters. For entrees, steaks were great, scallops were wonderful. We ordered one of each of the desserts. Soufflé was the standout. We will be back.

    We drove from Houston to dine. Server was very kind and did a nice job. Knowledge about menu. Food was good but a bit underwhelming. All food items were good quality but price point is high even knowing the food is local and garden fresh. Value for price paid was off. Half a sweet potato and sides @ $23 is high. For my entree 4-5 oz of chix for $32 is high. Ambiance is nice and inviting but would like to try the garden dinner.

    When life gets in the way and you haven’t been to your favorite restaurant in a few weeks, and you finally get to go, you savor every moment of your dining experience. Watching everyone enjoying in all the merriment, the wait staff dashing around doing their best and food fresh from the farm…It doesn’t get much better!! Except we were way too full for dessert…So we managed to pop back over later in the week for some homemade eggnog. If you like eggnog, run - don’t walk to Ronin and get you some. If they sold their eggnog mix, we would buy it by the gallon.🤩

    Ronin’s atmosphere is my absolute favorite! There are a lot of dishes that ronin has changed my mind about one being lamb. I had the lamb ragu, and it was amazing! The portions are amazing, and left me with some to take home! Every time I go to ronin I get it, and it never disappoints! I also got a hibiscus mojo and it was very refreshing!
