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 were seated on time. Waitress was attentive, noise level was so loud we couldn’t carry on a conversation and asked to be moved to a different table but none were available. Food arrived lukewarm. Ryan’s is always the BEST but not last Sat

We were in town for business convention and Ryan’s was close I liked the photos I saw and the menu on the Internet and was not disappointed at all. We were visiting from our home in The Las Vegas area were fine dining is very competitive and Ryan’s could certainly hold their own. We got the Chilean Sea Bass and the prime rib entrees with sweet potatoes and collard greens and the spinach artichoke dip with crab was wonderfuwith big chunks of artichoke. Ordered the prime rib medium rare and came red except for the edges but still very good. Also ver good old fashion I order with Four Roses but other bourbons available.

Went here to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. The food was fabulous! At first we were feeling a little rushed but then everything turned out great. I had thought maybe they had forgotten I made the reservation for my husband's birthday but toward the end of the meal, the waitress acknowledged our special occasion and brought out a chocolate dessert. Again, the food was delicious. The atmosphere was very nice and romantic although I could tell there were also numerous business diners as well. Would definitely recommend it for a special occasion.

We were late and could not reach rest. to tell them,our fault not theirs. Despite that we were seated at the table we wanted with a beautiful view and quiet. Dean our wait person was supper,told us about and served us a tasting of a new wine which was outstanding. We were going to theater so we had time restraints which Dean managed wonderfully. Food was just outstanding,service was special table was for four and had a terrific view. What a special place to go. Our Winston go special place. Thank you

We have celebrated several occasions here and have always been quite pleased. We were celebrating my Dad’s 80th birthday. This was a smaller group but my 18month old nephew was present. I was never led to believe that babies were not preferred when reservations were made. My nephew got fussy one time and his parents were getting ready to take him out when the hostess happened to be walking by and actually asked them “to leave “. We found this highly offensive and quite rash. His parents were taking care of the issue and would have kept him out of the restaurant if need be, we are all aware of the fine dining experience. However this was handled poorly and put a damper on our celebration.... a softer more sympathetic approach would have been more palatable. This will give us pause next time we decide to celebrate!!

This place was incredible! Great service and even better food! Highly recommend the brussels sprouts with bacon and blue cheese. My steak was overcooked (but still delicious) but the server insisted on taking it back. The owner immediately came over and apologized. Next, the server brought me a cup of yummy soup while I waited for my new filet. They brought me a brand new meal (new side as well) AND brought my mother another steak and side just for waiting. It was incredible!

My husband and I went for our one year wedding anniversary. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was amazing. There was nothing on our table that we didn’t love. The service was just as great. James was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend for any special occasion.

Int eh area for a show at the LJVM Coliseum and Ryan's is very convenient. Reservations were easy. Service was outstanding, friendly, informative and laid back. No rush on anything! Food was out of this world. Split the filet and lobster tail which was plenty for two with adding in an appetizer! We will be back!
