Summer is here, and it's the perfect time to try the exciting new cocktails created at Jack Ryan's Steak and Chophouse in Downtown Tyler before experiencing delicious fine dining.

Jack Ryan's is located inside the historic People's Petroleum Building, and the setting was just as grand as the delectable food and drink. I spend my time on the Mezzanine level with Aubrey behind the bar learning what goes into making the Cloud 9 and Hibiscus Margarita, while also sampling two incredible meals.

Watch Aubrey teach me how to make the cocktails, and Owner/Chef Wes Ebey present two of the dining options currently found on his summer menu.

Incredible food, atmosphere and refreshing drinks, Jack Ryan's is truly a hidden gem in Downtown Tyler!
