First time at this establishment. Was here for a couple's double date. Food was OK. nothing spectacular. That was disappointing. I had Shrimp and Grits and the Shrimp was over cooked and hard. The Ambience was on point. Cocktails were good.

Ryan’s has long been a place known for the quality of the food. Every visit our guests give the same feedback. The must have is the Bacon Wrapped Scallops.

You can’t go wrong at Ryan’s! Food is consistently good, wether steaks or seafood! Service is great! A wonderful spot for a special dinner! Geared toward adults, but have seen families with young children there. Not someplace I would take children under 12 to.

Without a doubt, Ryan’s offers the best steak if not all food in town! We love celebrating special occasions here, and we would led recommend it to all. Never a bad meal or service. This restaurant doesn’t miss a mark.

Went there last night with our Grand daughter who is a Wake Forest Freshman. Superb ambience, wait staff and, best of all, food! Great southern hospitality. We all had fish with a great bottle of Cakebread Chardonnay. The grouper was excellent, salmon was cooked perfectly...More

One of the best restaurants near Wake. Beautiful setting, always busy with a fun, happening vibe. Fabulous service and great menu. Do not wait to last minute to get a reservation!

They really know how to cook a steak! Not only was it well seasoned, nicely grilled, but it was perfectly cooked. Fresh Brussel sprouts also very good. Great service toped off the evening.

Ryan’s has long been the top steakhouse in Winston but I was happy to discover several “plated” meals which cost about half the price of a big steak. I had the beef tips and hubby had the duck. Both were excellent.

Are you looking for a cozy, old world comfort, classy atmosphere to enjoy an excellent meal? In an odd urban location in a natural woodsy setting, Ryan’s is a memorable dining experience. For a special occasion or an occasional treat, Ryan’s will not disappoint.

Absolutely, the unfortunate part is we are almost completely booked for Valentine's at this time. Give us a call and we will let you know what we have available. Thanks Kelly

We don't typically have many small children in the restaurant but that doesn't mean well-behaved children are not allowed. We do not have high chairs, however.
