Steak
Enjoy the panoramic view of large oaks and a rolling stream from the many window-side tables, or the large, starlight deck. Or, savor the intimate atmosphere from a comfortable sofa, and in the winter, the warmth of a crackling fireplace.

Ryan's Chef creates a tantalizing selection of appetizers such as jumbo lump crabmeat, steamed mussels in garlic butter and white wine, and oysters Rockefeller. Entrees range from thick, juicy steaks and prime rib to the finest grilled fresh fish and live Maine lobster. Choose from the menu or a superb selection of specials offered nightly. Add a cappuccino and a freshly made dessert to seal the dining experience.

The restaurant has been locally owned and under the same management since 1981. Ryan's has been awarded the Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence" and is often featured in national publications. Recently awarded the DiRoNa Award for Distinctive Fine Dining.

    Hands down, this is the resturant to go too. The food is Fantastic!!! service is great, the manager on point making sure everyone (resturant wide) was taking care of. In addition; I had a family member with strick food restrictions and they were very accommodating. Lastly we were celebrating a birthday and they surprised that person with a slice of the best chocolate take ever tasted. Yes, we will be back.

    Ryans is always our go to restaurant when it is time for a fine dining meal. We went for our daughter and her husband's birthdays, which are about a week apart. The food, like always was outstanding. The service was great. Maybe a tad slow checking in with us, but it was a totally packed house. We were in the main dining room this time, which I find a bit loud. Overall most excellent!!

    Just a little chilly in the restaurant. But , the manager turned it down some citing it was indeed too cold in the place . My scallop dish was very good just wished it was a bit more hotter in temperature. I also wished the tables themselves were spread out a little more ( especially during Covid ) . It could have been more apart for sure .

    Have you seen the movie Chef? It seems Ryan's has become the restaurant where the Jon Favreau character is working when the movie begins. Kind of the same stuff and nothing that wows the palate. Our server was excellent, trying to overcome the other components of a $300+ meal for 3 that just didn't hold up, starting with a very clumsy welcome from some guy who was busier trying to figure out and curse about an open table reservation on his ipad than actually paying attention to guests that arrived very excited for a special occasion meal. Then a manager-type came, mid-meal, for the check-the-box visit to engage with every table but not reading the room as she sauntered from guest to guest interrupting many lively and intimate conversations. I will certainly go back to Ryan's. It's often worth it, but I would be doing the dining public a disservice not to ensure they set their expectations accordingly, as I will for future visits.

    Megan treated us kinda like we were children coming in. No greeting after she dropped the food off then gave us the wrong check on our departing and when I raised my hand too get her attention she said wrong check? Like she already knew . Just meh service which is surprising because when I normally come in it’s always a great time

    The Mac & cheese didn’t taste well at all. It gave my boyfriend a stomach ache afterwards. Our pork chops were 2 different sizes also . Mine significantly bigger than his. Overall we had a great experience just will choose other options next time.

    Steak was ordered medium well, came medium rare. The steak was over 25 percent fat. Gentleman beside us had the same issue. We were seated right under the air conditioner vent, which was way too cold. Not what you would expect for $70 per person not including drinks.

    We recently dined at Ryan's for our 38th wedding anniversary. We got engaged at one of their tables in February of 1984! We live an hour away but try to visit Ryan's at least once per year. We have never been disappointed in our food selections. Once in a while we are lucky to have a great server, as we did this recent visit. Her name is Megan and she made us feel very special and welcomed. Thanks Megan and Ryan's!
