I have eaten here several times and the food and service were excellent. This time I had the chili and a sandwich. Both were full of flavor and very satisfying! Lunch is good time to go because they tend to be less busy, but still provides the great food and service.

I stopped at Ryan's this past Saturday to give them another chance. I ordered my regular food which was listed on their menu for the Ice Festival. It was meatloaf and it was the worst that I have ever had there. It was hard, dry, and basically tasteless. The Cole slaw actually hot and tasted terrible. I sent it back.... More

Ryan's has a great menu with amazing food. The decor is gorgeous on both floors. Upstairs features another bar and a couple party rooms. Many nights they feature live music. Definitely recommended is the ghost tour where your guide will tell you about the creepy things that have been seen and heard on the property. The tour also takes you... More

A work colleague and I, in town at nearby Fairfield on business overnight, ate there tonight as we were looking for a nice, local, non-chain place to eat. Fairfield was about 8 miles away and this place was worth the 15 minute drive. The place had a nice decor and atmosphere and some nice large booths. Our waitress was nice... More

We visited here for our first time and I give a thumbs up. Went there for late lunch/early dinner. Service is good, food pretty tasty and decent portions for the price. Fairly diverse menu, BUT don't expect to be able to talk with members of your party. Very loud, but everyone seemed to be having a good time. That's the... More

In addition to a full bar, Ryan's has a great menu and features specials daily. We have eaten there many times and will do so many more. The interior decor is that of an Irish pub and features some beautiful woodwork. I think this is Hamilton's best local restaurant.
