Ryan's Restaurant

$50 and over
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 are starting a family Thanksgiving tradition and couldn’t think of a better place to start. It was great.

One of the best restaurants I have ever experienced. Outstanding service, menu options and wine list. The food was amazing. We had the shrimp cocktail and scallops for an appetizer. Ribeye, grouper, duck and flounder for main courses

While the food was great, it felt extremely crowded and like Covid was not a thing. Tables with large groups and servers with only clear shields made it super scary. Food was perfect and all, but we won’t be going back for a while.

Ryan's had an expansive menu with a variety of meats and seafood as well as a few vegetarian dishes. I liked that they had a lot of various sides that could be ordered as well. Portion sizes were large and plated attractively.
Their wine menu was not huge but offered plenty of choices by the bottle and glass to allow us to find pairings/favorites easily. Our waiter was helpful in assisting me with a pairing for my entree.
Service was seamless and friendly.

Always a great spot for a special dinner occasion. Ours this week was our 53rd wedding anniversary. My wife enjoyed the rack of lamb and I thought the halibut special was all they claimed. Nick was a great server and the complimentary champagne to celebrate topped off a wonderful evening.

We ate all of our meals out that weekend and this was by far the best experience we had.
The server was attentive, but never smothered us.
The steaks were very good.
We had a question about furniture shopping at High Pointe and the manager and Chef both came out to give us some pointers and tips and suggestions on what to do in the area.
My only disappointment was that they didn't comp my wife's birthday dessert; feels like something a restaurant should do!

Everything was wonderful. I would have felt a little safer if those using the bathrooms had worn their masks. There a lot of selfish - ignorant people in North Carolina. I was there for my birthday - Had the best server!!!! (Stephanie, thank you). Hope to see y'all in the near future.
