We've been going to Ryan's for years and their food is always great. Their prices are reasonable. The staff goes above and beyond to ensure a pleasant eating experience. Their brunch is delicious! This is also an excellent option for large parties.

The food is great especially the buffalo tenders app. Really honest clean bar in the downtown area. It's location is a probably why it's not overly crowded but for you tourists near the seaport it's worth the 2 blocks walk. Prices are reasonable as well. Enjoy.

We hit Ryan Maguire's on the way back to the hotel after dining in the Seaport area. The bartender was very friendly and we made a few friends over a college football game.

When we got there at prime time about 7 p.m. on a Saturday night, it was pretty empty. That worried us slightly but it did get good reviews. Three people in our party we sat in the pub. They have a nice selection of beer, not huge. We split 2 appetizers, calamari and coconut shrimp. Both were good. Service was... More

Better than the average place for a casual business lunch in the finance district, the burgers are really good. Especially the Ryan burger. Even though the place wasn't super busy and there seemed to be plenty of staff, it's an overly long wait for food. I would go back.

I work in the neighborhood; people come here all the time, for like decades, that's how loyal the fans are. My workplace colleagues have been coming here since at least 1993. And they don't go anywhere else. These bartenders are nice and polite. I believe the owner is Meena; she is often around looking after everything. They have a free... More

Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
