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 a great place for a quiet/romantic meal. The scenery out the window is lovely, and the lighting is nice, and the service is great. We loved our meals and it was hard to decide what to order, because there were a lot of great things on the menu.

During this COVID season, it was a little scary to get back out to a restaurant but I am glad to say I was truly impressed with our decision to try Ryan's. The staff was wearing mask and social distancing. Even when serving our food, staff kept a good distance. As always, the food was succulent and delish. So, thank you for your professionalism and sincere care of your customers, it made the experience worthwhile and satisfying.

We ventured out to Ryan's for our anniversary. First time out. A little nervous but we trusted Ryan's to be very careful in providing a safe experience. The food and service were beyond our greatest expectations. So glad we went!

As normal, Ryan's does not disappoint. Service was great. Food was spot on. We frequent Ryan's a few times throughout the year and I always take my wife to Ryan's every year for our anniversary.

Great atmosphere with a great waitstaff. We were there during social distancing measures, which made things more quiet than normal I would assume. The food was awesome from appetizer to dessert. I will be going back in the future.

Ryan’s was an overall good experience. The menu is great and offers many options. They have several great appetizer options, entrees, and sides. I did not particularly like their short drink menu or my risotto, it lacked flavor, but my fiancées entree and mine were delicious. We had the Brie and for an appetizer and it was delicious, as well the halibut and filet! The only reason I would not give it a full five stars was due to the risotto, the fact that we were sat beside the kitchen in the deepest corner, and we were never given or offered bread, which is fine because we didn’t want any but the offer would have been nice!

My husband and I dined at Ryan's as our first outing after restaurants were allowed to open for inside dining. Everything was positively wonderful. Our server was friendly, helpful and very professional and attentive. I had the duck and my husband had the scallops. both dishes were delicious, nicely presented and we were very happy with the whole experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The ambience was perfect. Our waiter was awesome. Couldn’t ask for a better customer service. We felt comfortable even though it was the first place we had dined since the pandemic.

Very nice atmosphere. Service was excellent. Waiter was friendly, attentive to details and thoughtful. The pan-seared crusted prime rib was the best I ever had. Couldn’t have asked for a better evening.

Our first night out since the Covid shelter in place orders and Ryan’s was as delicious as always Dennis and his staff were so welcoming and our server Benjamin was great. Prime rib was perfect and the halibut with pistachio sauce was one of the best dishes ever. No place we’d rather spend our first post quarantine dinner

Ryans used to be good. Now the staff is just average and the food is just average. There are tons of better options in Winston now. We were disappointed that Ryans fell so short. When it was always just expected good food and good service. Unless they take it back some years to what it was.. skip this spot and head downtown.

Service was excellent and the atmosphere was very conducive to conversation and relaxing. Food was very good but I would not say it was
“excellent” so did not quite tip the 5 star scale. Overall a very good experience.
