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

Ryan's is our favorite location for special events, and this anniversary dinner was wonderful. Food was delicious, service was great (though I feel for the servers who are imprisoned by the stupid masks), and the price was certainly reasonable for the quality we received.

We have been going to Ryan’s for over 20 years. This was definitely the worst experience we have ever had there. Our server was poor. She did not show up to our table in the first 15 minutes after being seated. The entire meal felt very rushed and server gave the impression she just wanted to turn the table. In addition, for fine dining, they have definitely have stopped enforcing any kind of dress code.

Everything was excellent. The ambiance, the cocktails, the service and the food! Oysters Rockefeller is some
Of the best we have ever had. The Spinach & Goat Cheese Salas was delicious! Our Filet was cooked perfectly and sliced like butter. The Sea Bass with it’s Pineapple Salsa was very flavorful! Our server was professional and made our evening such a pleasure. The kitchen is hitting on all cylinders and you can tell they love what they do.

Dining at Ryan's it's an experience. From the moment you walk in, you are transported to a "forest like" setting, reminding you of the Old World steakhouses. Outstanding service, great social distancing guidelines and the food was superb. The wine list is impressive and the menu was very creative. We had the brie appetizer with apples and honey and it was delicious. The prime ribeye was juicy and one of the best steaks I've ever had. My husband had the aged ribeye, which did not disappoint, and the au poivre sauce was out of this world. Since it was my husband's birthday, he received a complementary triple chocolate cake, which was excellent, not rich, but very flavorful. If you are ever in the area, this is the place to go.

We had a lovely family, celebration dinner at Ryan's. Our server, Kelly, was wonderful - very attentive without being intrusive. We were given a table by the window so we enjoyed the wonderful treed view. I know they are know for their steaks but we all order seafood - lobster, crabcakes, and scallops. Everyone was pleased. I'm planning another opportunity to return so I can have a steak.

Ryan's is a neighborhood gem, and it was good to see they were busy. Couple of things were off that night. My scallop dinner came out luke warm at best. I guess it was a timing thing, because the two halibut specials were served hot. Didn't ask about the ribeye. The other problem, we asked for a window table, but the air vent blew freezing air on us 85% of the evening. For a special evening, it really ruined the ambiance for us. But will always go back because we rarely have a bad meal there. This evening was a sad exception since we were celebrating our active military son being home on leave and he and his wife expecting our first grandchild. Like I said, this was just an off night for us and we will try again another time.

Ryan's Restaurant is THE BEST restaurant we know. Their steaks are excellent, service is excellent if you get the right waiter, in our case Benjamin and he was excellent. Windows overlook a wooded area that is illuminated at night with a small creek below. That makes for an awesome ambience.

Another wonderful meal at Ryan’s which has been the most consistent restaurant in WS. Monday was move-in day at Wake Forest so it was pretty noisy and wait staff was a tad bit off pace. Nevertheless it was a wonderful meal and another typical Ryan’s evening. Excellence never goes out of style.

Great steaks and seafood. Hostess at front of house was not very friendly. First thing she said was do you have a reservation. It would be better if hostess greeted customers with " Welcome to Ryan's can I help you" We had reservations as always. A little better customer service goes a long way.
