A very nice, friendly place for dinner and the food is superb. I have been there for group luncheons also. MaryLou is very accommodating.

My husband and I were not impressed with the service we received at Ryan's. We stopped in for dinner one night and they told us it would be about a 15 minute wait. We waited for 30 minutes...then I went up and asked why we were not yet seated? The hostess told us it would be "just a minute". I... More

Met another couple there for a Friday dinner. We had been there before but not this year. The food is great with plenty of choices. The view of Henderson Harbor is spectacular during the sunset. Don't miss this little jewel in Henderson Harbor. Best food in the area. MAKE RESERVATIONS. It is a busy place and all tables were full.... More

4 adults and 2 pre teens had dinner. 3 had wine. $240.00 with tip. Service was very good. Food very good. The water was bad, real bad. The hot bread served had a rubbery texture to it like it had been microwaved, though nicely crispy on the outside. Otherwise, the rest of our meals were very good and portions were... More

We have a cottage close by and Ryans is one of our fave places to eat. The food is always good, the owner is usually on site and making sure everyone is happy. Portion sizes are huge and it's hard to get one of their amazing appetizers then salad and finish dinner! Great food, great value, great atmosphere!!

It's a shame that this restaurant is seasonal. Luckily for me, my birthday is in season! Everything about this restaurant is delicious. I have tried every appetizer on the menu and I can't pick one that would be my favorite. If it is not offered to you, be sure to ask for the maple butter to go with your bread--sooooooooo... More

Small-town attempt at an elegant restaurant but something is lacking. Example--lamb chops that were French trimmed but one bone was so sharp that it cut my finger when it brushed it by mistake. Waitress was good but didn't seem to have the personality and attitude to go with the price and menu.

Four of us had dinner on a Thursday evening. The food was outstanding. Bacon wrapped scallops and crab cakes for appetizers were perfect. Dinners included steak, fresh fish, Italian and a wonderful chicken dish named Harbor Chicken. They were all good portions and tasted great. Dessert choices all looked good and we chose the raspberry chocolate cake. It was delicious.... More

My family and I love coming to Ryan's whenever we are in the area. The food is delicious, especially the chicken basil pesto pasta which is my favorite! All the servers are so nice and helpful.
