Have eaten here numerous times and it is consistently very good.Started as a vegetarian restaurant and still serves a lot of vegetarian dishes, but has expanded to include fish & other seafood, plus usually one beef entree - all of which are excellent!

Very busy and glad we had reservations! Ate brunch on a Saturday and really enjoyed the options of eggs or sandwiches and flexibility to add a side. Omelettes are wonderful and so is the tea. The puff pastry was a bit dry, but I chose not to add the sauce for a healthier dish. Loved the bread basket and orange... More

We had dinner here the other night while visiting Raleigh. This is a very quaint restaurant with many original menu selections. We tried the chicken kabob, vegetable plate, and steak, all were phenomenal.

I visited with my fiance for Sunday Brunch and to listen to the musician slated that morning. This was our first visit and we were pleasantly suprised to see that fresh brewed coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice and a breakfast bread tray were all included in the pricing. We ordered the Quiche and Shrimp and Grits as entrées. Each dish... More

Walked into the irrelevant cafe and was told 20 to 25 minute wait. An hour later we were told we were Second on the list after every person that strolled by was seated ahead of us. Terrible attitude on the host and poor management after empty tables were left vacant while people waited. Don't go there unless you want to... More

We had dinner here on Christmas evening. The place was packed; we were lucky to get a reservation. We were seated immediately, and the owner came over to greet us. There was a band playing; not my kind of music, and it was a bit loud I thought. Three of us ordered the turkey dinner and my son had the... More

I would give my meal 5 stars but don't want to rate the restaurant with 5 stars, only because I have only been there once. If I went again and had a similar experience, I'd give it 5 stars. Goat cheese salad was delicious! We shared a chocolate cake for dessert and we all loved that as well. Great choices... More

Went there for lunch after a long afternoon walk. Was pleasantly delighted by the staff's warm greeting, especially since it was 1:30 after peak time for lunch. This place has a warm and inviting decor, the food items that I ate were absolutely delicious and the waitress that served me was amazing and treated me like royalty. What more can... More

We were visiting family who took us there because of the live music feature. Irregardless has music each and every night--sometimes twice a day. We went at night when there was a talented blues singer, Matt Walsh, In the middle of his performance he was asked by the owner because of a customer's request to turn off his mike. We... More
