Steak
Enjoy the panoramic view of large oaks and a rolling stream from the many window-side tables, or the large, starlight deck. Or, savor the intimate atmosphere from a comfortable sofa, and in the winter, the warmth of a crackling fireplace.

Ryan's Chef creates a tantalizing selection of appetizers such as jumbo lump crabmeat, steamed mussels in garlic butter and white wine, and oysters Rockefeller. Entrees range from thick, juicy steaks and prime rib to the finest grilled fresh fish and live Maine lobster. Choose from the menu or a superb selection of specials offered nightly. Add a cappuccino and a freshly made dessert to seal the dining experience.

The restaurant has been locally owned and under the same management since 1981. Ryan's has been awarded the Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence" and is often featured in national publications. Recently awarded the DiRoNa Award for Distinctive Fine Dining

We had a fabulous dinner at Ryan's. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had a Filet Mignon and a Lobster Tail as our entree. The steak was cooked to our perfection and the lobster with the drawn butter was great. We even had a scrumptious dessert of Triple Chocolate Cake with an Irish cream chocolate mousse and ganache topping. We will definitely go again.

Order a Medium Well Filet, it came out rare in the middle. Steak quality and taste was amazing once cooked as requested.

I’d recommend this restaurant but you should ask if any large groups will be there as the sound carries terribly. My husband and I could not even hear each other talk. Brussels sprouts were barely cooked. Almost raw. Halibut was excellent as always. Pecan pie had good flavor but was entirely pecan halves with none of the “goo” that we like. Steak was ok but I won’t pay for prime next time. Not the perfect experience that we usually have but we’ll go back at least one time as they could have had an off night.

Ryan's has been my "go to" for business dinners for several years and the last two visits have not been up to the standards I had come to expect from the restaurant. The steaks were good and an acceptable temperature, not hot. But the sides have been cool to cold and a bit shriveled looking on the last two visits. The service was slow and not what I had come to expect from Ryans. Our server was a little snippy and had to be summoned for drinks and questions rather than being on the spot with what everyone needed.
Everyone can have an off night but at this price point, it should be predictable and good all the time!

This was a Birthday dinner and a wonderful dining experience from the white table top with flower and candle light to nice quiet atmosphere. The waiter was very cordial and welcoming as well as knowledgeable about the drinks and food. The food was excellant and my steak was cooked perfectly as well as my wife’s scallops. The pricing was a little high, but in the end a great experience and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

My wife and I eat out a lot. But it is mostly for convenience. Frankly we tire of the same thing with mediocre quisine. Lately I’ve been cooking at home and find that seldom do I get the wonderful flavors at a restaurant that I get at home. However, our evening at Ryan was a fabulous experience. The service was great, the food was impeccable and for such a nice evening the price was right.
Thanks for an evening on the town.
Kurt and Carrie

As usual, Ryan's pleased without exception. The cocktails were made well and generous. The she-crab soup, the mixed greens, and the wedge salad were excellent. We all had fish for our entrees. The creativity of the dishes and the preparation, as well as the sides were exquisite. The pecan pie and the cheesecake were delicious. Our waiter was professional and cordial. A great evening.

After numerous trips to Ryan's this was the first bad experience with the food. I ordered the Prime Rib medium rare. The first one came out well done, sent it back. Second one came out medium well. After talking with Dennis the manager it turns out all the roasts were overcooked.

My wife ordered oysters rockefeller, they came out luke warm not the usual very hot. Her steak Au Poivre was not seared on the outside but was medium rare as ordered, although the sauce seemed watery and not as rich as usual.

Dennis told us the executive chef was off tonight and his sous chef was doing the cooking. He did take my dinner off the check.

This one bad dinner WILL NOT deter us from coming back to Ryan's. It has always been exceptional.

By the glass red wine prices are too high for the quality of wine. My first two choices for good values in wine by the bottle were not available.
