The Ryland Inn Ratings and Reviews
I recently brought my nephew and his wife to the restaurant, which he has never been, for a celebratory birthday dinner and had a fabulous night! I did mention the occasion with reservations but the hospitality and attention were far beyond my expectations.
The wine, food and service were spectacular. And although my nephew and his wife live a distance away, they expressed their desire to return.
Thank you for making an already special night more amazing.
We reserved Ryland Inn for a dinner on the 4th using Open Table. That was the day of the storm - we drove all the way to find that the Inn was shut.
There was no information of them being shut on the web and open table allowed us to make the reservation. It was my husband's Birthday. We were very bummed by this experience.
This was my first time here and I selected it after hearing about it from a friend because I wanted it to be special, for a first date. We were both so impressed with everything from the beautiful decor and decorations to the delicious brunch menu selections. The staff was so friendly and attentive and we will definitely be coming back for dinner next time. Thanks for everything!
We were seated at a table in the dinning room near the bar. It was so noisy, we could not hear each other's conversation. They quickly moved us to the back dinning room and it was very much appreciated. We enjoyed the tasting menu which was excellent. The only thing we did not enjoy was the coffee. Otherwise a lovely meal especially after the seating change.
The Ryland Inn is a wonderful place for a quiet or romantic dinner with superb cuisine. Portion sizes are more than adequate and the food presentation was remarkable. My husband had the hangar steak which is served with delicious greens and steak fries. I'm a salmon lover and the mixtures of flavors combined with a perfectly cooked salmon steak was unbelievably delicious.
The staff at The Ryland Inn are more than accommodating to insure their guests are treated like royalty.
My wife and I had a cocktail at the bar which has an excellent atmosphere and a great piano player the night we were there. We moved to our table for an 8:30 reservation right on time and enjoyed an excellent dinner. The 30 oz. pork chop for two was remarkable. Overall, it was a memorable experience
I really enjoyed the food , the drinks and the ambiance which has been dependable and with reliably delicious food since I resumed going there a couple years back. Even had great service while a wedding party was in progress at the facility! I recommend this restaurant to all of my friends and business associates too!
I liked the revamp of this restaurant. It doesn't feel quite as pretentious as its predecessor. The service, while extremely friendly, felt as if they were trying a bit too hard. A little more relaxed and my review would be even better. No complaint, just that I felt as if I had to make our server relax a bit. Kept apologizing for over attention, then under-attention, then something else. Perhaps was a new staff member. Food was wonderful. Loved the king crab special as well as the black bass.
At $250 a person...the restaurant is just not worth it...the service was mediocre...I resented the attempt to "sell add-on's" like truffles...it was okay...the place looks great but the food is not what is was before the catering facilities were completed...I think they are stretched in terms of food quality and service.
It's not really casual but the restaurant is not very welcoming for any other purpose. Food is expensive, limited wine list. Food was ok for this price range. This was a much higher end and more romantic prior to the flooding / water damage this place suffered some years ago.
It was out of commission for years and came back as what it is today, not as good as the original. Don't get me wrong, everything at this place meets a certain standard and it does everything well, from food , service etc but I wish they had made it more elegant and romantic and brought back the original staff mainly in the kitchen.
Looks like a beautiful venue for a wedding, but dinner on a Saturday evening was not so great - kind of like an afterthought. Our server was way too busy to provide the kind of service he probably wanted to provide. Food was inconsistent. We shared oysters that were very good, and an arugula salad that was teeny tiny with way too much dressing that was not very good. The seared tuna was great though and the lamb special was also very good. I had a cheese plate for dessert that had 3 little dots of cheese that were not too exciting, served with two dabs of some kind of a sour jam on the plate. Even the chocolate dessert was disappointing. Nice wines and beers, but I don't think we'll be returning.
We celebrated our first anniversary with the tasting menu, and I'm so glad we came here! They greeted us with a sweet card and personalized menus for our special dinner. It was so delicious and included a lot of food we would not have otherwise ordered. Our waiter was so kind and attentive, it was wonderful. The food is always fantastic - definitely worth the cost.
This was our first time dining at The Ryland Inn other than attending a wedding there a few weeks earlier. The Inn is lovely, inside and out and our server was excellent. However, we all felt the menu was pretty limited and it is expensive. My seared tuna entree and brussels sprouts salad were both excellent but the dessert of apple cake was dry and ordinary.
Our table was right inside the dining room next to the bar. It was a Friday evening and the bar was quite busy and noisy. In the future I would ask to be seated farther away from the bar area.
I'm glad we were able to see what dinner there is like but we will not be going back for a dinner.
The Ryland Inn never fails to deliver with its beautiful decor, great ambiance and fantastic culinary delights. First class all the way, and it is great for special occasions that really make them feel “special”. Great for anniversaries, special birthday or that romantic dinner with someone special!!!
This was our first time back after the Ryland Inn re-opened. It had been a memorable spot, for the food. service and environment. We were not disappointed in the least and it lived up to all expectations. We look forward to many more great memories at the Ryland Inn.
