My wife and I tried The Irregardless Cafe upon a suggestion from a friend. We had a Saturday brunch and the meal was very well prepared. My wife had fresh eggs and turkey; I had scrambled tofu and we were both pleasantly surprised by superb taste. The fresh vegetables in my meal made my palate smile. I would have added... More

The food is fantastic. Each dish is a standout, with flavor galore. Servers are knowledgeable and also funny. It's a bit loud, so try to avoid peak hours. The food is worth every penny.

We invited some friends out for dinner to celebrate my birthday. The fact that I had a free bottle of wine from Irregardless for my birthday sealed the deal. The 6 of us arrived at our reserved time. The restaurant was completely packed out! We shared hot crab dip before our entrees. I got the Poached Salmon. I LOVE salmon... More

The food was okay. I wasn't a fan of the syrup. Thick pancakes and thick syrup do not complement one another. If I didn't want a chain place, sure. But there are better local brunch spots. The live music was quite entertaining.

Visiting from SF area. All I could think is why don't we have something as cool as this in our area. Great food! Interesting selection of organic vegetarian and well conceived meat and fish dishes. A guitar trio played wonderful music from the 60s and 70s as we ate. Loved it!

Loved everything. Lived in Raleigh almost my entire life and this was my first time. Food was great and the food came out quick, hot, and perfect! The service could've been better but hey, they were busy. Recommend to all.

We have been going to the Irregardless for years. While there have been a few times that were less than outstanding, most are always at least good or great. Our last visit was Christmas Eve 2014. There are not many options on Christmas Eve, so we booked the Irregardless early. (It was later closed out.) This was another excellent meal.... More

Just minutes away from Duke Performing Arts Theater, the food offerings were unique, decently sized and full of flavors! Pairings of food were inspiring and their bar drinks were great quality. Try any of the fish entrees and you'll be pleasantly surprised! Be advised though, if you call for reservations and you want 5pm, they won't tell you that they... More

My family and I have been going to The Irregardless since I was a little kid. The restaurant owner Arthur is often in the dining room, and the restaurant manager, Dodge is very friendly. He always offers to make us our favorite drinks, his patented Old-Fashioned. He makes a delicious non-alcoholic version with iced tea that I drank while I... More

There has always been the Irregardless Café. At least since I've lived in the area, coming up on 25 years. And it has never disappointed me. Raleigh has, in the past 10 years, emerged from the food wilderness and now has several top notch restaurants, many of which aggressively seek recognition via "award" services and engage in heavy marketing. But... More
