Food average, atmosphere GREAT. Beautiful Irish pub with lovely decor located in the heart of downtown Hamilton. Menu selection is disappointing. Wish they had better food. Service slow on our week night visit, but we didn't mind as we were out with friends for conversation.

One of the best sit down restaurants in Hamilton, right in the middle of downtown. Beautiful Irish tavern.

Visiting family in Hamilton, we stopped by Ryan's one night for a late-ish dinner. We had good beer and I ordered the Guinness shrimp, which was excellent. I'm not a fan of the high-style chairs, but they were comfortable. The waitress was excellent. A nice evening.

The restaurant is located on the main street of Hamilton. The restaurant has an Irish pub theme. The service was good. I had the meat loaf. It was too dense. My brother had a Rueben Sandwich which was good.

Met friends to have dinner. We had good service and the meat loaf was good and the serving was huge. I have had the meatloaf several times as well as the fish. The food had always been tasty. Service is normally good but there have been lapses in the quality of service at times.
