“Nice dinner and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

We came here to celebrate our son's graduation from college. There were 6 of us. We were shown to our table right away but it was a terrible table. It was in the middle of the walkway and was so large that we couldn't talk to one another. My husband asked if there was another table and they said no. We didn't say anything else and thought that was the end of it. However, after our bread arrived they came and told us another table opened up and moved us to the table. It was awesome. Much smaller table and we could hear one another. Our server was great. Gave honest opinions on meals. All of our server's suggestions were right on. I ordered a filet and usually order it rare but he recommended medium rare and I am so glad he did. I have no criticisms. Everyone loved their meals and the service was perfect. It made for a great (albeit expensive) family celebration.

“Charming restaurant with great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

We went to Ryan's Steak Chops and Seafood restaurant after reading about it in a local newspaper. I am new to the area and am on a quest to find good local restaurants. It is tucked away off the street and not obvious (which was a plus), but thanks to our GPS, we found it easily. We were seated immediately in a charming room overlooking a wooded area with a little bridge which crosses a little stream, which added to the ambience. Our waitress was attentive and fairly knowledgable about the menu and wine selections. We were there on a good night, since all of the wine was 1/2 price; lucky us!! We chose the NY strip and filet as our main course and added the baked potato and one of the salads to accompany our meal. Although the steaks and potatoes were very good and well prepared, the salad was a disappointment. Both of our salads (house and caesar) not appear fresh since the lettuce was limp and there was way too much dressing on them, which made the salads less than palatable, thus the 4 rating. The dessert, on the other hand, was amazing, absolutely delicious and was made in-house. Overall, we had a very good meal and really enjoyed our dining experience. We will be back!

“Chocolate Cake to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

I love a chilled chocolate cake - sooo good! Oh, and the rest of the meal was good, too. I had to push away the pretzel bread after two pieces to leave room for filet, perfectly cooked to my request.
