The beer selection was great, but the service was a little reluctant. I took a large group of business colleagues on a Thursday evening. The outdoor seating was great, but the staff refused to serve us outside, instead making each of us place our orders at the bar and walk out. Again, it was a Thursday, but they seemed to... More

We came here after a Water Fire event about 9:00 pm. The hostess looked like she was scared of us or she just got dumped via text – and asked “are you with that other lady?” We were not with anyone so we said no. It was very strange and she was really unhelpful as to where we should sit... More

We stopped here for lunch on a Sunday and waited 5 mins before anyone came over to seat us. This should have been a warning since it wasn't very busy. We sat at the bar and ordered a couple of drinks and food. After about 25 mins we started wondering where our food was as was every table around us.... More

Great Irish pub atmosphere with delicious food. Giant screen TV screens surrounded the dining room with soccer being shown all afternoon. The locals cheer their favorite teams enthusiastically most wearing the team's jerseys. My wife claimed that her corned beef reuben was the best she's ever eaten and my fish &chips were terrific. Service was excellent and the meal was... More

Great little Irish Pub..... I had the Guinness Burger and it was very good. The side of Mac and Cheese was also great. The atmosphere is typical Irish pub feel. Wait staff was friendly and took very good care of you. Worth the trip if your looking for a nice relaxing environment and some good food.

First off let me say that I felt bad bringing up all the poor things about this restaurant to the manager; but his response floored us! Although he took our drinks off the bill as well as discounting the meals, the fact that he mentioned that others had also complained about the very same items made me think he needs... More

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
