The atmosphere, music, food and service were all fabulous! My husband had the banana/walnut pancakes and I ordered the eggs benedict--both were large portions which we enjoyed again the next day thanks to take away. The parking lot across the street was surely a bonus...More

The black bean burger and sweet potato fries are delicious! The service is usually good, albeit sometimes slow. The little man that refills your water glass is always on point with timing!

I first ate here in high school in the late 70's, and it was my favorite place until I moved away. I had not been back (due to moving) since 1984 until last week. It is STILL the best restaurant I have ever eaten in....More

Wife and I visited Irregardless Cafe last night. Locals say this is one of the best in town and we would agree it is on the list! Everyone recommends the shrimp and grits - so I had to try it. They were delicious as advertised!...More

You may want to call the restaurant to see if this location can fit a large party. I didn't see a private space in the restaurant.
