Wonderful food, good live music, terrific staff

This is such a lovely place to eat wonderful food and enjoy a variety of good music (and still be able to talk to your fellow diners). In addition, the staff is great, especially Aaron the bartender. It's a terrific dining experience. The restaurant has apparently been around a long time with a... read more

It was restaurant week so where else would we be. We both chose the meat tapas plates (great mix of tastes) and we both chose the brisket. Melt in your mouth delicious. The sides were great as usual. It was also our anniversary so naturally we took advantage of the free bottle of wine; such a nice touch. We both... More

Had not been to Irregardless in years. Got in for brunch at the last minute and it was great. Bloody Mary was right on. Had the burger and it was fantastic. Found out they were open on Christmas Day and decided to make a reservation for that night. What a great dinner we all had. I went all vegetarian that... More

Good live music & friendly service. Had the quiche of the day (spinach, tomato & feta cheese) which was creamy but lacked flavor & evidence of feta cheese. My friend had a burger which he described as "just ok". The hash browns were well seasoned & crispy ! The fresh squeezed orange juice with every entrée is a nice touch,... More

The portions were generous but the turkey bacon was not close to resembling bacon. It was more like dried jerky. Prices very steep. Service poor.

Went with a very large (30+) group for lunch. They had blocked a number of tables in 1 section for our group so we were all able to sit down when we came in. Their menu is a bit eclectic as they bill themselves as a farm to table restaurant. Most veggies & meats are from farms fairly close to... More

I visited Irregardless Cafe recently with some family when I was in Raleigh for business. I was thoroughly impressed! The atmosphere was great and there was a wonderful live musician. It wasn't too loud, though, as we were able to converse easily throughout dinner. I was impressed by the menu and was happy to see there were a variety of... More

Went there this past week with a group of 11 for lunch. The service was very nice and not rushed or stressed due to our parties size. Everyone got different entrees (some vegan some gluten free others all meat and bread :)) no complaints about food. I had a lentil soup and a quinoa salad both very light and great.... More

Great menu selections. I had the smoked brisket, garden salad and sparking water. The brisket was perfectly cooked and very smokey. It was sliced and served with a classic demi-glaze, roasted vegetables, potato cake, and roasted vegetables. The garden salad was fresh and nicely prepared with a Balsamic vinaigrette. The portions were on the large side. I could not even... More
