Great food. Service was outstanding. Noise was a little too loud. Overall great experience and would recommend.
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.
We've been going to Ryan's for years. It's always an exceptional dining experience.
Order a Medium Well Filet, it came out rare in the middle. Steak quality and taste was amazing once cooked as requested.
Excellent chef(s) and staff. I have a sensitive pallette and everything was well balanced. Absolutely no complaints. A wonderful treat.
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.
My son picked this for his birthday dinner and there was 11 of us. We had excellent service and the food was great. The view is incredible too. I will definitely visit Ryan's again when visiting Winston-Salem.
We treated our purchasers of our dental practice.
This restaurant is nothing less than a 10 out of 10! This is the second time I've been there and it is hands down my favorite restaurant in the area. Fantastic service and food! The steaks are cooked to perfection! My She Crab Soup was AWESOME! The desserts were great as well. Our waiter was Excellent! A great experience and I will be back!
We celebrated my wife’s and her twin sister’s birthday. We had a wonderful seat by the window. Service was excellent. Stephanie was our server and she was great. Food choices were ample and our food was excellent. Salads were fresh and crisp. Scallops swordfish and crab cakes were delicious. Highly recommend for any kind on event.
Perfect evening, food outstanding!
Loved sitting by window
The service was absolute amazing. We enjoyed the birthday we were celebrating
We have an awesome experience every time we dine here.
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!
We had a great birthday dinner! Everything was excellent!
Loud, crowded.... yes, it was a prom night but teenagers need a good meal in a charming ambience too.
Very enjoyable fine dining, been a repeat customer for 3 years anytime I am on Highpoint Greensboro I reserve way in advance, Filet and Lobster tail is the bomb.
Netta was our server and she was amazing!!! The staff was very polite and attentive
My husband and I took my college son and 5 of his friends our to dinner at Ryan's. Everything we ordered was delicious and there was a nice variety of menu choices so everyone found something perfect to eat.
Wonderful birthday dinner
A truly great dining experience all the way around.
Always wonderful! Great service, great food, great atmosphere!!
As always Ryans has been great. I will say stick with the regular filet versus the prime filet. We love their steaks
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.
Food was outstanding. Can always count on that Everytime!!!!
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.
Service Impeccable! Dean did a great job! It was a special occasion birthday and everyone made us feel special!
Always a wonderful experience at Ryan’s. Attentive service and great quality and freshness.
Great service and quality.
Everything was fabulous as always!
We've had many anniversary dinners at Ryan's over the years and this, our 40th, was outstanding as always! Perfect cozy corner table with that incomparable view, great food and an unflappable server who got everything right. Thanks again, Ryan's. We hope to spend many more anniversaries with you!
Excellent food, great staff
Outstanding from start to finish. Our server was stellar, the filet & lobster tail were second to none, and the atmosphere was so warm and inviting. I hope Ryan’s will never change!
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.
As always, Ryan's proved to be an excellent restaurant. It was a perfect spot for our family to enjoy celebrating a special birthday. The staff was wonderful, the service was outstanding and the food was delicious.
Excellent restaurant for our 49th anniversary. Planning to go again for the 50th! Food and service were wonderful!
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.
Had a nice dinner at Ryan’s this past week. Food was excellent and server was fantastic as well. Highly recommend.
