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 Consistently Perfect. We had Lobster Tail & Filet, Again Cooked to Perfection. When I eat Steak or Lobster anywhere else, afterwards I always say. (Ryan's is Better).

We had an excellent meal and service was just as great! To top it off we were seated next to a fireplace over looking the nature outside. A perfect night out to celebrate a birthday!

We were seated in the upper area overlooking the deck. This area isn't as nice as the downstairs areas. The waitstaff was courteous and prompt to our dinning experience. My asparagus wasn't cooked well done and was a bit cold. I have been to Ryan's several times and this wasn't as good as times before. We were celebrating an event for our granddaughter.

Fantastic as always. Perfect restaurant to use as a value gauge against other steakhouses and trendy spots. Always worth the trip, beautifully situated behind the old Reynolds mansion.

Everything was virtually perfect. We had a table in the quietest part of the restaurant...our server was outstanding...and the food was wonderful. This isn't the first time we've been to Ryan's, and it's always been very good - but this was our best experience ever. I'm still daydreaming about it.

All 8 in our party were so pleased with the food, and the service. I started with the Heirloom Cherry Tomato Caprese ...so good. The Arugula Salad was a refreshing change of pace. Loved the crunchy sweet pecans and the tangy bite of the Fire roasted Red Pepper vinaigrette. Filet and Lobster tail the best I ever had, melt in your mouth...so tender. And top it all off with the Crème Brule for the perfect ending. Looking forward to our next visit.

Lovely experience. We were seated in a smaller room instead of the main dining area which was a big plus for us. Although there were other diners in the room, it felt somewhat private. Both food and service were excellent. Pre-dinner salad was very fresh. My partner ordered lobster which was perfectly cooked, and I ordered grouper which was very good. Finished off the meal with a nicely flavored cheesecake. Food quality at this restaurant is excellent.

One of the best restaurants in the Triad. A fine selection of various meats leaves me desiring to return for additional fare. We definitely plan on returning real soon. The chocolate martini was absolutely delicious, would have had another but had to think about driving home safely. The staff is exceptional, very friendly and attentive to all your needs.

We enjoyed a birthday dinner at Ryan’s with friends on one of their half price wine nights (Monday = half price, ALL bottles, with prices very fair to begin with). Two in our party had steaks (sirloin and filet mignon) while two had seafood, with everyone very happy when we got to dessert (triple chocolate and key lime, with these two desserts split among the four of us), which made us ecstatic! Service was great, including wine service (we had a Chateauneuf du Pape and a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir).

Went with another couple for a nice, quiet dinner. Ryan's did not disappoint. While interior is a bit dated (kinda dark), it is a nice atmosphere with a view into the woods that has lights running thru it. Our waiter was engaging, informative and the food came out quickly. I had the prime rib and it was OUTSTANDING! All salads were great and the Oysters Rockefeller was a wonderful start. Deep wine list with choices starting in the low $30's.
