We started going to Riley’s regularly about 8 years ago and it never disappoints. Sounds unconventional, but a must is the Married Salad - a blend of Caesar and Greek that I actually crave if I don’t get it. Wide menu, good prices with a...More

If you’re craving bar food and loud music with pool tables and televisions displaying sports events, this is definitely your place!

Thanks for letting us know the music was too loud as that is not our intention. We will bring this up with the DJ.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Sorry that the noise level adversely affected your experience. In Canada, unfortunately, unless you ground your own beef it is against Health Regulations to serve a burger any other way than well done.
