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 took our parents to Ryan's for their 60th Wedding Anniversary. It was very nice - we sat by the window, food was very good, and the waiter was very attentive. A very enjoyable experience.

We all had different dishes and drinks, and everything was as good as it gets. I had filet, Penny had shrimp & grits, we had half-shell oysters as an appetizer. My baked potato was the first I ever had with enough butter on it. The martinis were perfect. My only complaint is that I was served asparagus instead of the spinach I ordered, but I like asparagus and it was perfect as well. That didn't even register until after we left.

We went to Ryan's for our anniversary dinner and totally enjoyed the experience. The food was superb and the service was excellent ... attentive without being instrusive. My wife and I both agree that Ryan's is the best restaurant we've been to in Winston-Salem and we give it our highest recommendation.

Food was very good and plenty of diverse menu options. However during the course of the meal we were having to refill our wine glasses instead of our waitress. Otherwise everything was outstanding.

Ryan’s was amazing. The ambiance was old school southern, dark, cozy setting and yet because it was so busy, the noise level was actually pretty high. The menu had steak, seafood, lamb...and some southern favorites such as grits...great wine list both in price and variety. We chose a Barbaressco that went great with our steak and crab cakes. My favorite thing was the port and Sauterne offerings for dessert. You just don’t see that much any more. I got the sauterne and hubby got a pecan pie dream dessert. We loved the entire meal. Thank you Ryan’s!!

The wait staff and food were fantastic! The noise level was too loud considering the clientèle and for the price...the table location poor(in the middle of traffic).
We would come back if the seating and noise level were more accommodating.

We went on September 28th, 2019 to celebrate our anniversary. Although we've lived in Winston for many years, we'd somehow never been there, and my wife was eager to try it. Food and service were excellent. Will definitely be going back.

I had the Prime Filet and it was delicious ! Very disappointed that a steakhouse would serve boxed mashed potatoes as a side. They were definitely not real potatoes, I let everyone at our table try them and they all agreed they were not real!!

Took a friend out for birthday dinner and it was fabulous!! Chilean sea bass, wedge salad, bottle of sparkling wine, cake for dessert!! Everything was on time, service by Matt was fantastic. It was nice and quiet and comfortable overlooking the lighted bridge in the woods by the stream. Highly recommend!!

Most everything was great except for my husband's entrée. His chicken was tough and dry. The manager did offer to bring him something else but he had just about finished the chicken and didn't want anything else to eat.

We had wonderful evening , as we have always had when we are spending
it at Ryan's. The evening was our choice to celebrate our anniversary. Our
only thought was a noisy table that was there for a port of the evening.

The food is extremely salty and the air conditioner for some reason was at full blast and I had to ask them to turn it down several times. Our server was absolutely phenomenal though. If it was just up to service, I would give it five stars

This is definitely the best dining in Winston Salem! This was our 3rd visit and we have never been disappointed. I have ambiance at 4 stars only because the noise level allows you hear the conversations at surrounding tables. This is a well established place and the far dining room is smaller than the main dining area so it is to be expected. Prime rib and Chilean sea bass were excellent and the bartenders are always top notch. I highly recommend this place!

Good food, nice atmosphere. Steak ordered medium rare came more medium well and truffle fries became cold fast as if they had been ready waiting on the rest of the food and were already cooling down. Still tasted great. I enjoyed the table overlooking the stream and watching the birds. It was very busy but noise level never became a problem. Servers were very polite, helpful, and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our meal and will be back.
