Everything about Ryan's was wonderful. The service was exceptional. Our meal was delicious and the plating was beautiful. The waiter's wine recommendation was perfect. The atmosphere was so romantic. I would give Ryan's 5 stars!!

Ryan's is a WS upscale (not quite "fine") dining staple. It's not imaginative or adventurous - nor cheap - but they do the staples with great proficiency. It excels at exactly what it claims to - steak at seafood. Service has always been good. Atmosphere...More

Husband and I went here for our 11th anniversary. It's hard to find a "dress up" restaurant these days because most restaurants are too casual for celebration dining. From beginning to end, we were impressed with the service, drinks, appetizers and the meal. After a...More

This is one of North Carolina's most exquisite restaurants. The food is always delicious and the atmosphere elegantly causal. In Winston-Salem it definitely is the place to go with family to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or oust to enjoy each other.

Perfect service with the focus on fresh menu items and expert preparation. Add in presentation, table arrangements, a genine person not a robot verifying your group needs and you will be delighted too. Both times were during the busy holiday season; the noticeable excellence while...More

Ryan's - not to be confused with the chain restaurants - is THE place for top quality beef and seafood in Winston Salem. Reservations are a MUST, although sometimes they might be able to squeeze you in if you call ahead. The wine list is...More

We don't typically have many small children in the restaurant but that doesn't mean well-behaved children are not allowed. We do not have high chairs, however.

The price is relative to what you want, In general entrée will be from around 24 to 50, appetizers may run from 8 to 14. Wine is fairly typical for fine dinning.
