I took my wife and son to Irregardless. It received good reviews and thought it looked like a great place. First, the restaurant looks like a great place. The atmosphere is great and the live music is a nice addition. My only complaint is that the lights were too bright. Lower lighting and perhaps some candles at the tables would... More

From what our daughter and other friends have claimed, supper here last Friday was going to be great. I looked up and read the noteworthy reviews on-line the afternoon before we went with neighborhood friends, and maybe expected just a little too much. Parking was no problem, we had reservations so were taken to a great corner table, and we... More

I love this place. I've been here twice. Once for a birthday dinner and once for a dinner with friends, both before going to the theater in the park. It's a great place no matter what the reason! I crave the Morgan Street chicken! I have to get their dessert every time! I've tried their salt and vinegar fries and... More

Met some friends for brunch around 10 and got right in. They had live music...nice touch. Everyone enjoyed their food. We just had some basic breakfast, eggs, home fries and their version of "turkey bacon" which is actually brined and smoked turkey breast. Quite tasty. We also tried the gluten free waffle which we were quite excited about although it... More

This place will not disappoint. The food is so good coupled with the feast service and the live music at dinner. We always make sure when we are in Raleigh to stop in. We had a delicious dinner one evening. The stuffed squash is wonderful. The evening we went, it was crowded but you would not know it. Service was... More

I recently had brunch at Irregardless Cafe. It is a small and cozy place so when it fills up it does get loud. But the biggest issue here was the inconsistent service, as most tables were brought out two glasses of OJ as well as a bread plate with different breads and muffins but neither were brought to my table....

This is a long term establishment in Raleigh. I haven't been in way over a decade and decided to try it again. Parking is difficult, but we finally found a spot, and inquired at the restaurant about where to actually park, so we'll know for next time. Started with an interesting cocktail called "Stinger" and it was good. The selection... More

We recently had dinner on a Saturday night at Irregardless and we wrongly assumed that the vegetarian entrees would be stellar. How wrong we were. My acorn stuffed squash was served cold (it was a hot dish) and 2 of us had to send it back. Only one of the 4 of us had an edible dinner. The temperature of... More

My husband and I, out of towners, went for dinner. The food was amazing! We both had the Mahi and my husband said it was the best Mahi he's ever had. The portions were generous w/out being obscene. I'm gluten, dairy and soy free and it was not an issue. The hostess and our waitress were very friendly and attentive.... More

Very well themed place. Food is amazing and the live music is an added plus. The thing that stands out the most was the service we got as we walked through the door. The menu was well explained and full of flavor. The drinks were great and well thought of. Overall this was a great experience. A little higher priced... More
