The Irregardless is one of our "go-to" restaurants. The service is great. The music is eclectic and the food is always good.

Our most recent visit was no exception. Peter Lamb and the Wolves was playing. Great band! Our food was delicious and the service was steady even though the restaurant was crowded.

We try to eat at Irregardless at least once a week. Lunch, dinner, or brunch -- every meal is great! Fresh ingredients and interesting preparations. Wait staff is superb -- friendly, helpful, welcoming! Special shout out to Allison and to Wes!!! The live music is also a real treat. Larry Hutcherson is a favorite. Owner Arthur Gordon really cares about his community and it shows.

We've enjoyed Irregardless since it's beginning decades ago. The food, service, and welcoming atmosphere are always excellent. Music is a bonus, and weekend paella is to-die-for. If you're from out of town, it's worth the effort to fight Raleigh's downtown traffic and parking is free across the street.

The brunch was good with a very nice selection. I had the crab cake Benedict. Pretty good although the egg was overlooked... The home fries had great flavor. The biscuits and breads are a good touch... The jalapeño biscuit being a date.

Service was ok... Nothing spectacular.

The Bloody Mary was terrible. Do not order the bloody.

I would go back.

If you blink, you'll miss this diamond tuck in the corner of a sloped street. Walking in was like entering a magic wardrobe, the place is actually quite large with various types of seating, including tables in front of a velvet curtained stage with live entertainment--and it's only brunch! The service was genuinely kind and helpful. Fresh squeezed juice is complimentary and every table already had the fresh cream for your coffee. The food selections range from standard to quite unique and were delicious!! We will be back!!
