This is somewhat of your run of the mill Irish Pub; however, it's worth a stop in. The staff is very good and their menu is broader than most Irish Pub's. This place is an easy walk from the Tropicana and seemed to be a...More

When you enter you will feel as though you have stepped into an Irish Pub somewhere in the Isles. Nice mix of traditional Irish dining options and a full bar with many great Irish beers and ales on draught and in bottles. Sunday afternoon brunch...More

My husband and I are frequent visitors to the casino but for some reason, had never been to Ri Ra other than for drinks. We decided to try it and were extremely disappointed. When we arrived, there was a guy playing guitar (and sometimes banjo)...More

Arrived at 11 am on Saturday morning and the place was empty. Not only no customers, no workers either! Waited 10 minutes, even wandered around the bar and knocked on the kitchen door! Finally a waitress showed up, very nice but obviously not ready for...More

Terrific lunch enjoyed at Ri Ra, hearty servings and delicious house wine available by the glass. Very busy and well staffed. We will come back next trip. Conveniently located across the street from our hotel Le Merigot.

Really convenient location if you're staying at the casino. They have cheap late night eats (separate menu). Also, they have live music on outdoor patio sometimes.

I came here for a drink in the afternoon, while staying at the Tropicana just down the street. It wasn't very busy, so we just sat at the bar and chatted with the server. She told us about their Bloody Mary buffet that they do...More

Food is always good. Servers are very nice and helpful and service is usually quick. It can be a bit loud, but it's a fun atmosphere.

Meticulously restored in Ireland and shipped to the US, Rí Rá embodies everything that you would expect from a genuine Irish pub. The bar has been carefully restored from old Irish pubs and related salvaged artifacts including the magnificent mid 19th century bar complete with Victorian snugs. The pub required a tremendous effort from numerous Irish craftsmen to complete the restoration of the key pieces. Rí Rá captures the essence of the genuine Irish Pub – the warmest of welcomes, an unrivaled pint of Guinness, fine food and service and great ‘craic’. In 2016 Rí Rá was voted #1 Bar out of Top 10 Best Bars in the Tri-State by News4U “Best of Tri-State Awards”.
