About the restaurant
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.

Please refer to our website for our dress code. It is enforced nightly.

Food and service was great. Place is really small so that was a little deterrent.

Food was fantastic. Filet came out overdone and they immediately replaced and seemed sincerely horrified. Oysters and goat cheese tarte as a starter are strong recommendations!! Loved the experience and will definitely go back.

About the restaurant
Our full-scale restaurant, Bistro Europa, is officially open! Our dining room is still in the design phase so all seating for food is outside under our Veranda Patio, or on picnic tables on the lawn. Our goal is to provide our guests with an inimitable guest experience with our friendly, well-versed, and knowledgeable team, who are an extension of our own family. We are 21+ across our venue. We will only serve water and wine. Tastings and wine will be offered Wednesday-Sunday. We will offer food Thursday-Sunday. Last reservation times depend on the booking day.

This was our first visit to Rayson. We had high expectations, and they delivered. We did the wine tasting and then moved outside for lunch and more wine. The food was delicious, and the service was awesome.

About the restaurant
North Carolina chef and restaurateur, Jim Noble founded Rooster’s: A Noble Grille with the intention of being relevant without being trendy and to impress without being pretentious. That commitment has carried us through two decades and continues to lead us on today.

Knowing that simple food is harder to execute given there is nowhere to hide the flaws, we go to great lengths to source quality ingredients from local farmers and purveyors. We then take all the time necessary to develop their flavors —using both European and modern techniques—always working from scratch.

Our menu features tried and true staples like our spit­-roasted chicken cooked over open fire as well as progressive daily​ specials and elevated Small Plates featuring Executive Chef Brad Pennell. At Rooster’s, you’ll always find something new served with an honest commitment and consistently warm care.

The food, service, and drinks were all on point! We had the fish crudo for an appetizer and it was the best I’ve had. The salmon and burger were also amazing! Their chef certainly knows his flavors and the staff was very attentive! Lovely place for a date night! Highly recommend!!

We had a table of 6 as a small family get-together. Quinn was our sever and did an amazing job. He was attentive without being annoying, and was always present when something was needed. He's likely the best server I have experienced at any restaurant in my life. Food was great, most of us had a fried chicken which is our favorite dish. Top notch experience
