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 have been to Ryan's before and this Valentine's weekend evening was no less w.o.n.d.e.r.f.u.l than our previous experiences. It is most certainly an establishment for special occasions and more. When we dine here it is not only for the fare, which never disappoints, but also for the service, which is smartly attentive. Like I've said, we've been here before. We will come again.

    Ryan’s service was excellent, courteous, timely, and friendly. The atmosphere is great, a quiet, attractive dining room with pleasant surroundings. My wife’s meal was excellent. The filet was just the way she likes it, medium well. Cream potatoes made the old fashion way and asparagus steamed properly to preserve the taste yet provide a little crunch. My filet was undercooked more like rare than medium which I ordered. My lettuce wedge salad and the loaded baked potato were excellent. Overall, a great place for a pleasant night out.

    Saturday after Valentine's Day, with reservation for two a week earlier. Service was great, prompt, professional, friendly. The table for 2 was crowded into a corner and had to navigate past a fireplace mantle sticking out, so not so great even though at 9:00 seating it appeared there were a couple of better tables open that were not used as the evening progressed. They were out of aged ribeyes so alternated to prime rib. The quality of the prime rib was not prime. Cooked perfectly (pink with a nice salty bark) but with way too much waste in fat and sheath, more than would be expected. Au jus was as expected but the bourbon glaze (both in cups on the side) was no different than the au jus. They must have been out. I'd try Ryan's again on a less busy night, but wouldn't recommend yet.

    I ordered the Joyce farms chicken and substituted my sides for the Brussels and parmigiana frites. The mushroom sauce on the chicken was AMAZING. My husband had the filet with scalloped potatoes and Mac and cheese. He said that his steak was cooked perfectly. We ate here to celebrate my husbands birthday and they gave him a free dessert for the occasion. Ryans is our go-to for “fancy” date nights, and we will continue to come back!

    Once again it did not disappoint . Long time customer once in awhile. This is a white table cloth, linen napkin, flower and candle setting. Business casual attire. No problem with my walker and viewed a wheelchair. I can’t say enough about Ryan’s. Food and service is impeccable.

    The restaurant was so loud it was difficult to speak with my wife sitting across the table. I'm not one to complain, and I don't know how anyone would quiet a restaurant, but my ears were literally ringing when I left. I love this restaurant and it is my wife and I's special night place, but our last experience wasn't the best.

    Mentioned 40th anniversary in making a reservation and asked for a window table. Got a table next to stairs with coming and going; no change when asked if they would. Appetizer was very good, server seemed very good however our food came out before our salad - evidently it was forgotten. They took food back, brought salad, then reserved the original food that was kept warm. That overcooked the food so had to send back. The server was very accommodating and that was appreciated.

    The food was amazing. Services was slow. We waited a while before our waitress came to the table to take our drink order. The waitress apologized for the wait. Once our order was taken, our food and drinks come out quick. After we were done eating, we sat for a while waiting for our check. Overall it was a great dinning experience, if you don't mind waiting.
