Our family had our Thanksgiving lunch on Thursday. Server was polite and attentive. There was nothing that I could mention that stood out. We had a good, pleasant time.

Ryan’s Grill isn’t like it used to be. I was disappointed this time. Food isn’t near as good as it was several years ago. Service was slow (maybe it was our particular server because the hostess even checked on us).

Wait help, Rosalie seemed off and a bit inattentive, always making an excuse when asked a question. She made a mistake with drink order, had to send it back. Found a dirty utensil, she grabbed it and rubbed the area on it and said it was just “oldness!” It was clearly dirty with food on it!! Appetizer came out last, but only after we asked about it. She said sometimes things don’t come out in correct order, or something in those words and gave other reasons why it took so long. We mentioned we made Rez because of the Jo Koy promo. She looked at the ticket my guest attempted to show her and she quickly cut us off by saying, she will handle it ! She didn’t listen to our complete sentence and then failed to give us the promo discount! She was very unprofessional and when she came to look for the bill folio and couldn’t find it ( my guest was so irritated by that time, she walked the bill to the bar for a managers assistance), she stood at our table and began asking what was wrong. We proceeded to tell her. Then she commented that she’s not “hovering” but clearly that’s exactly what she was doing!! Waiting for my guest to return, so she could ask her what was wrong! She began apologizing but by that time we were done with confrontations and listening to her excuses! We understand she has been with the company a long time, but I too work in the hospitality industry and have never experienced a wait help conduct herself in the manner that she did. The restaurant was very slow that night but yet she seemed a little overwhelmed. I can only imagine what service would be like if there was a full house!! But I know everyone has their days. And although my guest was very upset and walked out we still left a 10% tip. It could have been worse if not for the manager coming to our aid. be back because we know that overall, one incident cannot and will not ruin Ryan’s reputation. We enjoy happy hour and the friendly staff and bartenders on our Friday night pau Hana visits!

I like the food and atmosphere at Ryan's, but there was a live singer and the music was just too loud. We could not hear ourselves across the table.

Very good service. Wide variety on menu : burgers,steak, fish,salads, chicken and pasta. Had trio salad; best was blue cheese. Chicken salad was ok. Too much dressing on pea salad for my taste. Rigatoni with meat sauce was good and a better choice.

Sad and dreary. There were plenty of staffers and few customers but it took a long while to be even greeted by a server. We had happy hour menus only at our table. When a server eventually arrived we had to ask if the regular menu was available. We never even received water.

Very disappointing experience. Not what we were expecting from Ryans.

I go to Ryan’s a lot and I’ve never been disappointed. This time I had the French onion soup and the rigatoni bolognese. A lot of places have these dishes but to my taste Ryan’s seems to do it better than most everywhere else. I also need to give a shout out to the manager, Cedric, who is always so accommodating and helpful. Our waitress was super nice as well.

If you love Kincaid's, you will love Ryan's Grill. I loved the menu options and the signature dishes. It's a more laid back version of Kincaid's. The wait staff is amazing. Ronny was phenomenal. She was super nice! I will return. I recommend the French onion soup, crisp pea salad, and the prime rib.

Great food. Terrific happy hour! We are long time fans of Kincaids which recently closed in Honolulu. We were referred to Ryan’s as a replacement! I’ll always miss Kincaid’s but the food, drinks and service at Ryan’s is every bit as good as was Kincaid’s. Several of the menu items from Kincaid’s appear on the Ryans menu which was a great treat! Ryan’s will become a go to for us in each visit to Honolulu! A special treat was to find our favorite server from Kincaid’s now at Ryan’s. His name is Arron and he is out standing. Also we were delighted to find Roe working in the bar. We have known and appreciated her for years at a Kincaid’s and what a delight to see her at Ryan’s!

Ryan’s is consistently good. Even after the merger with Kinkaids it still has good food and excellent aervice. The closing off of the kitchen was a mistake and seriouly hurt the view but once you get past that, its not too bad.

Seated immediately. Outstanding service provided by a thoughtful and hardworking server. Food was very very well prepared.
Cost was moderate and provided a good dining value.
During previous visits to Ryan's it had declined in service, quality of food and overall value. But thankfully Ryan's has made great strides to return to it's previous reputation as a "go to" restaurant on O'ahu.

It would be useful if better information was provided as to how to access the restaurant after mall hours. We arrived at the Ala Moana Blvd address to find locked gates. Spent 10 minutes working out how to get into the mall.
