My husband and I stopped here while we were exploring Providence. The service was great and they had great specials.

If you crave Irish food, the place is somewhere to get a decent plate. The food is not spectacular, was a bit on the luke warm side, but did have plenty of flavor. The bar leaves a bit to be desired. The space is cramped and can be noisy too, but overall it is an average experience in dining.

My wife and I were at Ri Ra's this past Thursday night for Karaoke and had a great time thanks to Bartender Rachel, the Karaoke DJ (forgot his name), the singers, and the atmosphere. It was our first time there for Karaoke, but we've also had some good times in the past couple of years there on various occasions. We... More

My wife and I went to RiRa on a Saturday at 1245pm. There was no hostess and no sign, so we stumbled around for a couple minutes confused as to where to go. Eventually another customer (who also looked confused) asked the bartender and relayed to us that it was seat yourself. That would have been nice to know at... More

The atmosphere here is awesome! Choose to sit in a dark wooden cubby hole at the bar for intimate conversation, an open bar where you can watch sports on the tele, or in one of the great dining areas. Fun and entertaining events happening all the time: Karaoke on the night I was there, an upcoming Pub Quiz night, dart... More

Love the Irish Breakfast that's available all day. Cozy, delightful Dublin themed bar in the heart of Downtown Providence. If you're a fan of the Irish Pub, this is a must visit. They pour a proper pint of Guinness here, and the energy and charisma of the place really carries true to it's theme. There is outdoor seating for fine... More

We were a little worried when we were walking into the pub on a Sunday night and saw nobody, and I mean nobody!, when we first walked in- but once we got around the corner hallway we were greated by a pleasant bar tender with an irish accent. We were able to sit wherever we wanted and our waitress was... More

I want to preface this review by saying that we went to Ri Ra specifically for the All-Ireland Gaelic Football match which was streaming in the pub. There was a $20 admission which included a Full Irish Breakfast. The food was great. The Bloody Mary's were perfect. And the ambiance, well...it was Irish. Since I live with a Dubliner, this... More

Been there before several times primarily because its the only pub around that served Middletons Irish whiskey. Had the burger w guiness sauce and cheese fries. Good but not a reason to go there. The service is very good and seems to be a popular college hangout.
