The meal was good, the atmosphere was great. The only problem was the high prices compared to the food you were given. Definitely over priced.

My wife and I have had our December anniversary dinner at Ryan's since 1997. It is low-light, wood-paneled, and romantic with excellent and attentive servers. We have also hosted some old friends from other parts of the country, and we have attended other's birthday dinners...More

Went for a romantic dinner. The waiter was very attentive, the food scrumptious. Enjoyed seating in the lounge by the fireplace before proceeding to the dining room

Our family dined here for a holiday dinner and had a wonderful time. The wait staff was helpful and attentive, and the food was simply divine. Great steaks, truffle frites, Brussel sprouts, and a chocolate chip pie to die for.

We go for every birthday, reunion, celebration & anytime we want to go nice. Best food and wine and best waiters in the area hands down.

Initially you may think this to be outrageously priced but compared to a Ruth Chris, Ryan's is a deal. Our dinner included one drink, appetizer and entrees -- no dessert. $100 sans tip. Considering the exceptional service and quality, this is not out of bounds.

One of the best if not the best restaurants in the Winston-Salem area. It is a very out of the way place in the middle of town. Very romantic set back in the woods. The food is fabulous and the staff works very hard to...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.
