Had a delicious meal at Ryan's. Service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. This is my new favorite restaurant. I wish they had an outdoor patio, that would be perfect.
We were 2 couples celebrating our combined birthdays (within several days of one another). We had a wonderful meal in lovely surroundings. The service was excellent. We would highly recommend Ryan's. We have gone there whenever we want to have a special night our or for a celebration.
Food, ambience and service were excellent. We had halibut which was delicious. We almost always get steaks here but did not regret our choice of halibut.
Outstanding servers and management make this a great restaurant. Exceptional food. We look forward to visiting again soon.
We enjoyed our meal - excellent food, great service, and an anniversary to remember!
Usually this restaurant is exceptional but unfortunately it was average this time. Appetizer was not served correctly and by the time the crackers were requested and delivered the baked Brie had begun to harden - and the apples were soaked in water and had no taste. The sea bass was soaked in butter and quite greasy
Ryan’s never disappoints. The food is outstanding. Salmon, scallops and grouper were ordered and cooked perfectly to specification. Another of us had the steak au poivre and said it was wonderful. Our waiter was great and even kept us posted on a basketball game that we hated to be missing! We only wish we didn’t have to drive from Greensboro!
Haven’t been in a while and it didn’t disappoint. Food and Service was exceptional as I wouldn’t expect any thing less.
Excellent as always - I have never been disappointed dining here.
Great service, great food! A little pricy but great for an upscale date night. Oyster Rockefeller, wedge salad, seasonal salad, lobster and fillet. All great and cooked to protection.
Ryans is wonderful. The food was excellent and our waiter was great
Have been there before. Always had great service and food. Will continue to fine there.
Ryan’s continues to deliver a consistently great dining experience in a wonderful inviting atmosphere. No better place to dine in Winston Salem.
Been here several times and have never been disappointed. One of the best places in the Winston Salem area. You can’t go wrong.
Service was slow but other than that, it was great!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere with wide variety of high quality dining choices.
Excellent food and service.
The restaurant is as beautiful and cozy as ever but our food and service were very disappointing. Our server was not professional. She frequently and unnecessarily interrupted our meal to check on us. We ordered the most expensive, “highest quality” steaks and they were terrible—tough and flavorless.
A Winston-Salem classic that never disappoints. The menu is varied, the appetizers are fantastic, and Monday nights are half price bottles of wine. What is not to like?!
As always, we had a wonderful time at Ryan's. All eight of us left satisfied, which is a feat. The staff is professional and very friendly.
We love the "old-school" feel of the place. The Ahi Tuna Tartare is wonderful and so are the desserts.
We were in from out of town and I surprised my husband with a reservation here to enjoy the well reviewed steaks. We were not disappointed. It was a lovely atmosphere - old school martinis, French onion soup, ribeye steaks! Everything was fitting of the authentic, traditional steak house reputation. We had a very thoughtful server and an overall lovely dining experience.
Took our son and friends for dinner. Second time in 2 months. Food was incredible! The tuna and oyster apps were amazing and just as good as last time. Salads, steak, lobster and crab cakes for dinner all cooked to perfection. The service was very good and best of all when we make a reservation our table is always ready. Our go to spot when we are in Winston.
Excellent food, service, ambience. Always come when in town. Really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Make reservations well ahead of time, always busy!
I had never heard of this place until I went looking on Open Table. My wife and I were looking for a good dinner as we hadn't been out in a while. We were looking for something that would be very good, not the normal, and some place unique. First off, the place is a lot bigger than it looks from the outside. I was impressed with the wine selection. They have a nice variety and price range so I am sure anyone can find something they might like. We ordered the antipasto to start. For those not familiar, this is the same as a charcuterie or a meat and cheese board. Dinner for me was the twice fried duck, and my wife had the filet. My duck was very good although I do prefer my duck to have a nice crisp skin. I would get that meal again. My wife made the better choice. Her steak basically melted in your mouth. I honestly think she could have been fine without a knife. One of the best steaks either of us have had. We both got dessert. The chocolate bourbon pecan pie was phenomenal. We left happy! Great service. Everyone was very friendly. If I had a complaint it would be that it can get quite noisy. This, of course, is due in part to the immense amount of wood used inside. We definitely will be back!
We go to Ryan’s quite frequently and love it. This night it was very noisy. Our waiter Benjamin did his best but service was slow. This was unusual. Our fillets were overdone but the meat is always excellent so we just chalked it up to a very busy night. The receptionists are always friendly and accommodating as well as the waiter. We will be back as always. There was a Wake Forest basketball game earlier so that could have caused the extra patrons. We had made our reservations a month in advance.
Ryan’s always deliver when it comes to quality. And this time was no different. If pressed to find anything wrong, I can say that my wife was slightly upset about not being offered dessert. Perhaps it was because I made a comment that I was so full. Also she wondered about why there was no bread placed on the table until we had to ask for it. But these are very small issues, And I thoroughly enjoyed my experience once again.
We've had some wonderful experiences at Ryan's in the past, but it seems the customer service and ambience have declined. We made a reservation well in advance of our 10th anniversary dinner, and requested a specific wine. An employee emailed me that afternoon to confirm that a difference year was available for this same distributor, and I confirmed that this was fine; however, when we arrived, the wine was unavailable altogether. The host was very apologetic, which we appreciated, but to date we have yet to receive any apology from Kelly, the employee who emailed to confirm that day. In addition, our waiter was a bit coarse. His service was less refined than usual, given the price point and expectations from the restaurant's branding. We tipped him well, as is our custom, but we were ultimately disappointed. Beyond this, the restaurant was extremely loud for most of the evening, and on a few occasions, the patrons were underdressed. We were under the impression that this was a business casual, upscale environment, but perhaps we were wrong. A gentleman stood out in jeans and a very large cowboy hat, which gave the atmosphere more of a "Texas RoadHouse" feel. In general, we made the best of our dinner, but we're not sure if we'll return in the future. We hope Ryan's can return to its former excellence.
Great food! Excellent service! 50% off the wine list on Monday. Bacon wrapped scallops are awesome as is the filet mignonette and lobster.
Always a special night out with great food and service.
We had the lamp chops with sweet potatoes and spinach with the Caribbean wine and the ice cream with caramel pecan shell and berries. Very nice meal, enjoyed myself and will go again.
Did not live up to its reputation
Great experience! We were in town to visit our son and take him to dinner for his bday. He asked if we could go to Ryan’s. We brought our local ice cream and called to see if Ryan’s would allow us to have that for dessert. They were great! Served our group of 11 our hometown ice cream after a delicious meal. Great place!
Took my wife out for her brithday, and as always the Ryan's never disappoints. The waiters was very friendly and professional, and the food tasted great.
Great Food! Great Wine!
Made a 10 year old feel special on her birthday. Thanks and will be returning again in the near future.
Server was horrible
The food was amazing and the staff was exceptional.
Hey were very attentive and food was great. Server was very professional.
Great steak and lobster.
