Nice restaurant. The food was very good as we had the special chipotle pasta with steak and sun dried tomatoes and my wife had the spinach salad. The drinks were also excellent… old fashion for me and red sangria for her. They also had a live piano player with base player for nice background music.

About the restaurant
Ronin features elgant farm cuisine with a constantly evolving menu. Set in the beautiful, newly-renovated historic Ice House on Main in downtown Bryan, our restaurant shares an open-air kitchen with our dining room, floor to ceiling exposed brick, and hand-built, suspension tables made from wood salvaged during renovation.

Our menu is updated daily, based on what we have harvested from our garden during that given week. Our farm is located just seven miles from our restaurant. The climate and changing seasons play a major role in what we serve. It is our intention to always provide a variety of menu options and to accommodate any dietary needs.
