Good food for a reasonable price. The first day we had fried oysters and a steak salad. And a beer (a sort of local beer: summer ale). They let you taste the beers before you order. Magnificent. The second day - we kept coming back! - we had a caesar salad and fish and chips. On both days we the... More

The food was good and the ambiance was fun and casual. Location was perfect for us as we were staying at a wonderful B &B just a short walk away.

I found their "pub food" outstanding! They do not pretend to be "fine dining" but what they do offer is super tasty. I would caution those who do not understand the word HOT, they should proceed with extreme caution! Thee folks are not kidding about the heat levels, so please check with your server. You can always add heat, however... More

I love Life of Reilly. The atmosphere is the atmosphere of your typical pub in Ireland...not a lot of fanfare, small bar area with TV's and small dinner area. What makes it great is the food...went for lunch and had the house burger and crab soup. I have never had their crab soup before but WOW!!! Worth every bit... I... More

Really uninspired food from a place that used to be pretty good. The salad had tasteless store bought croutons and not enough dressing, the steamed shrimp came with canned cocktail sauce and the shepherds pie had no seasoning. Will not be returning.

Typical pub, but trivia night was fun. Food was fine enough, very popular spot for young people. We were there the night before surgery, so we probably weren't really looking for a rousing time.

My recent travels to Baltimore found me having a quick dinner at the Life of Reilly Pub. Guinness stew was great and the service was fast and friendly - great price!

As soon as our group of six entered this pub we were made to feel like old friends. Nothing was too much trouble for them. No table for six available, not to worry we will rearrange our tiny dining area so you can all sit together. Menu contained typical Irish dishes with some Maryland seafood thrown in. The loaded tater... More

The Life of Riley is a true neighborhood pub within easy walking distance of The Blue Door on Baltimore. A little bit of Ireland in Baltimore, their food includes typical pub grub, but also a few dishes with a little twist. Our waiter had a slight Irish brogue. I enjoyed the loaded tater tots!
