This is one of Winston's "old guard" restaurants... the one you can count on to be packed almost every night. If you want to eat there around a holiday, call a couple of months in advance. Ryan's offers wonderful beef and pork dishes and excellent seafood. There are a couple of chicken choices - also tasty- but don't pass up... More

I was told by a local that this was the best place to eat in Winston-Salem and I believe him. Great food and choices, excellent wine list, responsive service. I will be back.

Several months ago when we visited Ryan's, my steak was not cooked to order which made for a disappointing meal. We visited again recently and both steaks were cooked perfectly. It was a delicious meal !

I've eaten twice here while on business. The host is pleasant and responsive, as is the service. The menu is largely steak and seafood with options for those who don't enjoy either. Everything I have had was delicious and the kitchen was responsive to our requests for simply prepared vegetables - steamed without added salt and butter. The wine list... More

We've been going to Ryan's for years and never disappointed. Comfy bar with bar cheese and friendly and knowledgeable staff. Watch out for special occasions at Wake Forest as they will pack the Restaurant. Seafood, steaks, whatever they do it well.

While many know Ryans for its chops and steaks, the seafood is my favorite. Fresh, perfectly prepared, and paired with wonderful sides. This is one of the best for dinner around.

My husband and I celebrated our 18th Wedding Anniversary at Ryan's. The food was excellent. There were so many wonderful choices on the menu we had a hard time deciding what to order. The service was outstanding. The staff went out of their way to make sure our evening was truly enjoyable. Ryan's is the perfect place for any special... More

Three of us ate here on Oct 7 and had a great meal. The service was top notch and the menu selection was something for everyone. If you go on Friday or Saturday, they have some of the best prime rib you will ever have. First class restaurant in a very pleasant setting. You will not be disappointed. Very good... More

This restaurant is a gem. Everyone was totally impressed with the atmosphere, the food, and the service. Everything was excellent. I had the 10oz prime fillet - it was cooked perfectly. I also had a crab cake appetizer - that was ok. The wedge salad fresh and well done. We will be going back weekly.
