Great place for vegetarians. Everything brought to the table was good to great. I had the burger with fries. This is not my usual type of restaurant but glad I went.

Chopped steak salty. Husband said salmon was good. Loud with lots of people and blue grass music. Bar needs more variety in wine.

LOVE this place for many years... Lived a block away while attending NCSU and ate here many many times. After the fire, I purchased several cook books for Christmas presents to help with their rebuild. Hope you make it soon!!

Read reviews and as the only vegetarian in our group liked the menu and numerous choices. Dining is in a open area, mishmash of decor adding to its eclectic atmosphere. Young lady was playing piano and singing which was nice but the din of the crowd makes it very noisy if busy as it was when we dined. Food selection... More

The hubby and I went here on a Sunday around noon for brunch. There was a good-sized crowd, and we were advised the wait would be 20-30 minutes, but it ended up only being 10 minutes. The food was fresh and delicious with generous portion sizes. We both had shrimp and grits and a side of fruit. Breakfast breads, orange... More

This should be a casual up-scale dining experience. But it kinda sucks. We are not from Raleigh, and based on the reviews thought it would be fantastic four our birthday dinner. The crab dip was good. Our salads were hood. The goat cheese on mine however was not rolled in herbs. Of any kind. It was just fried. Which was... More

Had the please to visit this cute little place this weekend on a trip to see a friend in Raleigh. We arrived around 7 on Saturday night and only had to wait about 20 mins. She we arrived there was live music playing. A saxophone and a cellist playing dinner type music. The atmosphere is causal though. Everyone in shorts... More

Went there for lunch (semi-official), and found it to be quite decent. The food has a distinct flavor that is different from many other places I have eaten (hard to describe). The service is ok, but it is a little expensive. There is very limited parking in front of the restaurant, but they have a parking lot a little bit... More

It had been years since we had been to Irregardless Cafe due to location (near downtown and NC State), but after the Dix event decided to go for dinner. It was wonderful and we aren't vegetarians or vegans. Something for everyone and the waitstaff are great with suggestions for the "don't like" issues and making recommendations for menu items that...

This is a wonderful farm-to-table restaurant in Raleigh about a mile and a half from WRAL TV station. I had the good fortune to have lunch there today and thoroughly enjoyed the Goat cheese salad with medium rare steak. The steak could have been warmer, but overall the food was delicious and the service (even though we were a group... More
