We went to dinner with a friend. The waiter was amazing and the service was efficient. I had fried shrimp, which was quite good, my husband had a steak, which was disappointing with lots of grizzle, while our friend had fried fish, which she enjoyed. It has a nice ambiance--warm and inviting.

We had a reservation for 12 people a month in advance for 8 pm. We arrived. Were seated. Waited 1/2 an hour until we called wait staff over because they ignored us. Then they told us that 75% of the food on the menu was no longer available. Not only that, the kitchen substituted potato chips for real potatoes, etc.... More

Went for lunch. Meals were good. Fish sandwich was a bit messy to eat. October is time for the "Testicle Festival"! Free fried goat testicles. Didn't try them though. All was good until trying to pay. Took an exceptionally long time to get the credit card back from the waitress.

I went to Riley's with my brother and father, it has all fresh and tasty food, well worth the price. The atmosphere is definitely pub style very dim lighting, but this works for the style. Superb food, I got the fried Perch, first time I tried Perch. Lastly, you have to try the "Irish Fries" crispy, well seasoned, thin cut... More

His does this place stay in business with the rude blond at the bar? We went there based on a current review we read. Sorry we did. Rude service and not so great food.

Riley's has a very changeable menu - you never know what to expect. We were there recently and my husband had the Lake Erie Walleye Pike with fries and coleslaw. Unfortunately he thought the Pike was a little undercooked - so he rated the dinner "fair". I had a turkey burger with provolone, a baked tomato and macaroni salad. My... More

They have an excellent burger. The meat is flavorful and very tender. I like the swiss cheese and mushroom burger. The menu changes daily and their desserts are not to be missed.

Riley's knows exactly how to cook a burger "medium" where it's just slightly pink in the middle and still dripping with juices. Excellent! So many burger joints can only cook hockey pucks and then rely on the toppings to make the burger succulent. Well done (figuratively speaking, of course)! And the Irish Fries are not to be missed. HUGE slices... More

you would never find this place if someone didn't tell you how to get here, but it's always worth the trip. menu changes daily, and if you actually have room for dessert, you have to get the raspberry pie. the bar has a great neighborhood feel.

I come here so often that I don't think of it as a restaurant but more like a neighborhood Cheers! The food here is very eclectic as the menu changes daily, except for Friday when it is seafood entrees. Don't go on a Friday if you want their huge, delicious burgers with Irish fries as they will not be available.... More
