The food was very good and the service was excellent. Extra helpers roam the room to whisk away finished plates and refill water. The atmosphere was a little loud with a packed house and live music, but it was not hard to have a conversation. We started with the warm crab dip. That was just OK. It was very runny and did not have much crab. The warm pita slices, however, were very tasty. I had the shrimp and grits - excellent. The shrimp were cooked to perfection - practically melted in my mouth. My husband had the Duck a l’Orange - wonderful, and cooked exactly to his order - medium rare. We shared the Coconut Layer Cake and that was very good - not too sweet and very moist. Will return to try other options. They also offer specials - it was hard to choose!

We recently returned to Irregardless Café for a family meal. My wife and I found the food to be outstanding, the service was excellent and the music was entertaining. Overall this meal turned out to be an excellent experience that I would recommend to anyone. There is a diverse menu with vegan and gluten free meals.

The only warning I would give is that the tables are close to each other and the ambient noise tends to make extensive conversation difficult.

Lunch was delicious, atmosphere was pleasant and service was attentive. The highlight was dessert! We shared fresh coconut cake and flourless chocolate cake! What a treat and obviously desserts are made on site. Will look for an opportunity to return soon.
