What an incredible culinary experience this restaurant delivers. The beer-battered haddock simply melted in my mouth with every bite, and the lobster bisque had me almost weeping for joy. I've never seen pickled vegetables served in a jelly jar as a pre-dinner munchie, but I love the idea. The wonderful waitress will refill the jar if you become addicted to... More

Like Jesus...I Wept. An incredible experience of mouth-watering delight. The steak is temptingly sinful with each delicious bite. Repeat offender...guilty as charged.

We had a late night light dinner. They were kind of enough to serve us as they were closing. The food was fresh and tasty.

This was our first stop on a night out to celebrate my husband's birthday, and we chose it because he is a steak lover, and we'd heard that Ryan Duffy's is top notch. This turned out to be true; he found the steak here exceptional, arriving to his exact specifications (doesn't always happen), and with lots of delicious trimmings: mushrooms,... More

Been to to this Ryan Duffy's more than half a dozen time. Won't be returning! Went there with "last chance" already on my mind and it only got worse than expected. Usually go and have Surf and Turf, (not cheap) and decided to have the Beef Wellington at the recommendation of the server. What a mistake! Asked for the Beef... More

Well this blew up on me, I have been here before a few years back and it was one of the most wonderful places I have eaten in. Last week I talked my coworkers into going here for our annual office dinner, I'm sure I will hear about that one on Monday as I took heat on the way home.... More

We were staying at The Hollis, and didn't want to go far for dinner. Called ahead and were told we wouldn't need a reservation, just to come down whenever we were ready. We sat close to the fireplace - very cosy - and had the chowder and the prawn cocktail to start. The chowder was fantastic, and the prawn cocktail... More
