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.

    She Crab soup very good. Prime Fillets had nice flavor Dining room quite small and very noise. Not ideal for a quite romantic dinner. Serving staff left serving table by our table which I thought was quite tacky and rude of them. Much better options for the $$$$

    Over all our dining experience was really good. There was a loud party on the lower level which made it hard to enjoy the tranquility of the restaurant. However, the food was amazing and we will be back again to celebrate our families next occasion.

    I can't say enough about our experience at Ryan's. The location is in a picturesque setting with a beautiful wooded view. The service and food are phenomenal!! I made a specific request for seating when I made the reservation which was accommodated. Management came around and asked how everything was which tells me they care about how the restaurant is performing. I would highly recommend Ryan's to anyone finding themselves in the Winston-Salem area. We drove from Cary, NC specifically to dine here due to excellent reviews and press. It was absolutely worth the drive and exceeded my expectations. Thank-you to Ryan's for a perfect evening from start to finish and everything in between.

    We had the Brie to start, it was delicious, then a cup of the she-crab soup. The best part of the soup was I ordered it for me, but the server (I wish I could remember her name), heard me ask my girlfriend if she would eat a bite as she walked away. My gf said of course. When the soup was served, it was with two spoons, great catch, very very good service (as always). The au poivre on the filet was perfect as always. My gf had the rack of lamb which was also delicious. Everything cooked right. Lastly, we drove from Charlotte to eat here. I include that as a huge compliment as Charlotte has incredible food, but i specifically wanted au poivre from you guys. Thanks for making my 26th bday a nice night. - Tommy (and Katie)

    Food was good but service was really subpar. Server did not get order right and when questioned he pushed back on what he had heard. Said he would comp a salad that was ordered that he brought late but he didn’t. Did not explain specials though we heard the server at the table near us do so. Overall underwhelming considering that the service seemed transactional and not at the level expected for fine dining.

    The food was magnificent as usual. Our waiter left a little to be desired mainly because he was asked by the customer, me, to not put whip cream on the Irish whiskey and it came with whip cream. Now this normally wouldn’t bother me, but when I brought it to his attention by saying I asked for no whip, he looked me and said, and I quote, “no you didn’t”. Wow. It really made me angry but for the sake of keeping the evening nice and enjoyable I let it go and he did take it back and correct it. However when you spend that kind of money on a meal, you expect to be treated well. I was the customer after all!

    We felt that the menu was good, appreciated the GF options, the prices were not terribly out of line for quality, the food was delicious, the service was well timed, the surroundings pleasant but, the noise level was highly unpleasant. It was a Wednesday night and quite busy but large groups will by nature be louder. We suggest you consider some acoustic measures. There were only 2 of us and we had to yell at each other so we could hear
