We had drinks here this past Saturday, April 15. The bartender was very nice and extremely friendly. The selection of beer is vast. We had Irish and Scottish beers. We also did a flight of Irish Whiskey. The fish and chips was great. The piece of fish covered the plate. We sat at the bar and the bartender although she... More

We love Irish Pubs and had heard Ri Ra was a great place to visit. We found it OK at best. The place was packed - primarily a single, young demographic (not that there is anything wrong with that:)). The service was OK - especially given the crowds. The drinks and food were marginal at best and more your common... More

Very packed--downstairs had live music upstairs is a night club atmosphere. I went for Irish music and got stuck with dance music upstairs. Food was really good and authentic. Prices were the same as every other Irish pub--$14 for fish and chips, etc.

Went to Ri Ra's yesterday - party of 3. Asked if the kitchen was open, response: "yes it's open but there's a 45 minute wait for a table." So we said "ok" and put our names on the list. They said "we'll call or text when your table is ready". Seems pretty straightforward right? Well after about 40 minutes of... More

We spent quit a lot of time here since Charlotte was crazy with the CIAA. We had dinner and drinks the first night. Our waiter was great, we talked with him quite a while, very friendly and efficient. I had the Kilree Chicken which was great, chicken, beans and potato were all very good. Husband got the fish and chips..... More

This bar was joining in the festivities on New Years Eve. There was no cover (at least when we got there) and they were handing out party favors which was a cute touch. The place states or not that full but as the night went on it got packed. Bouncers came through and took the stools we were sitting on... More

We took advantage of the 70 degree day in February and went up top to the outside patio. We got a few of the beer samplers and enjoyed the nice weather. The waitress was quick to get the drinks and it wasn't too crowded which made it easy to socialize among our group of seven on a Sunday afternoon. We... More

We were seated in the window booth, sort of on our own, but that worked for us that day. The only drawback was that I think our server, who was otherwise great, had to go back and forth to wait on just us, and at one point forgot to bring a second beer to the table. We weren't charged for... More
