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

This is a fantastic restaurant for special occasions! The menu selection was amazing, we had a hard time deciding what we wanted. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly, excellent sear on the outsides, buttery smooth on the inside. The flounder was also delicious and it paired well with the citrus couscous and veggies. This was our first time here and we were surprised by the anniversary treat they gave us at the end of the meal. Service was also excellent, our waitor was wonderful and very helpful when it came to deciding what to order. We will definitely be recommending this restaurant to all of our friends and will be returning ourselves.

Everything about our visit was fabulous from the minute we walked in after a long COVID required break from eating out!
We brought friends who had never dined there before and we will all be coming back!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Ryan’s. Kenny provided excellent service and gave us some great recommendations. Tables were spaced out well and we felt safety precautions were very good. The food was excellent and we will definitely be back next time we are in Winston Salem!

The server was a lady who was clearly not happy to be working. She wasn’t horrible but definitely not friendly and just going through the motions.

My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary.... Our waiter was very pleasant. The food was ok.... The crab cake was extremely delicious , I highly recommend. We were not impressed with the actual meal. My lamb was ok and my husband hated his ribeye... We are not sure if we want to go back.

We were sitting close to the waiters computer and the bar service.. it was loud and no ambiance... I’m sure we would have enjoy more if we were sitting at a different place, but probably the worst table sitting we have unfortunately. Next time I will specify a table with the forest view.

The meal was good. I like my steaks well done and it was sort of burned. But other than that, again, it was what was expected.

As we have experienced every time prior, everything was perfect. Attentive and knowledgeable waiter, outstanding flavor and serving size just right. We still have not found another restaurant in Winston-Salem that comes close to Ryan’s. In our opinion, there is no comparison.

I've been to Ryan's three times with work events and once with a private event. Although it is VERY pricey, you will not find a better cooked steak anywhere. The service is always impeccable and the food never disappoints regardless of what you pick on the menu. It is not a choice most people can make for any given night, but, for special occasions, it is worth the overall experience. A+++
