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.

Food was fabulous best shrimp and grits. Steak is on point. Pricy but for a evening out special event definitely worth it.

Normally me and my husband get steaks but tonight he tried the shrimp and grits I got the salmon it was so bland and basic. We were very disappointed. We didn’t even eat our food we boxed it up. But our server Netta was great. Guess we will be sticking to the steaks

Traveling through the area and found this place online. Food was excellent. I wasn’t the best dressed diner and this caused the waiter to judge me. I tipped more than 25% anyway.

The entrees were great. The server must have been having a bad night. He forgot our drink order, failed to deliver the oysters we ordered and disappeared when asked to bring hot sauce.

Disappointed in the quality of food. Out of by the glass wine and grouper. Blamed it on supply chain?
Ordered filet and it was over cooked. Salad was average with too much dressing.

Wonderful restaurant for a special occasion. Quite expensive- for two people it was $140 with the tip. But it was worth it celebrating the anniversary of our twin boys birth/death. We always try to celebrate the day together.

My wife and I chose Ryan's to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. We had eaten there right after our engagement. Our return was well worth it. Coincidently, we were seated at the same table from that last visit. The staff was friendly and efficient. They helped make our celebration warm and wonderful. The appetizer selection is impressive, as is the main menu. We had terrific cocktails, a great dinner with wine selected from an amazing wine list, and finished with a complimentary glass of champagne to top off the fabulous evening.
