    If you're vegan/wfpb, Irregardless is THE BEST dining choice in Raleigh! There are non-vegan choices as well, so there's something for everyone! Always start your meal with the Garden Salad with Lemon Tahini dressing... the dressing is beyond yummy! And I can't say enough good things about our server, Emily - knowledgeable, attentive, and such positive energy!!

    My wife and I have broken bread at Irregardless since 1983! The food has always been splendid, the staff helpful, and the service great. The French Silk Pie is one of our all-time favorite desserts. We will be back.

    Excellent service from Dara, delicious cheese burgers and home fries…not our usual fare but that’s all we wanted plus a glass of wine…on which we got good advice. We have loved this restaurant for 40 years and it’s good to know it’s still great.

    I’ve loved Irregardless for over 40 years. It isn’t the same anymore. Service was indifferent. I missed the OJ and baked goods that came with brunch. I ordered the avocado toast. “Toast” was so thin as to be nonexistent. The avocado, while plenteous, had a lot of bad spots. It was disappointing - rather bland and quite boring after a few bites. Also, the restaurant seems so crowded now and super noisy. It made me sad.

    Irregardless is always fun, with good (not flashy) food and music. We went with two grandchildren, one vegetarian, and they very much enjoyed it. Informal, not that expensive, and good food. I highly recommend the peach, arugula, and goat cheese salad.

    Food is incredibly bland. “Blackened” salmon was grilled at best. Smoked Brisket had never seen a smoker. Parmesan risotto may have had mozzarella or soemthing els bland on it. Menu looks interesting, and dishes could be good if someone competent was cooking the components. Huge disappointment.

The presentation and delicious flavor of my dinner was perfection. The servers were very attentive to our every need and were very pleasant. It's so nice to go somewhere that the staff actually seems to enjoy taking care of you. All in all a great dining experience!

    I was in town visiting my daughter and she suggested we eat here since I can’t tolerate gluten or dairy. I was so impressed my the menu and my zucchini noodle dish was delicious and light. The cherry on top was the dairy free pain de crème dessert with gluten free shortbread cookies and fruit, so rich and full of flavor.

    After hearing people rave about Irregardless for months, I finally decided to give it a try and went for Brunch on a rainy Saturday morning. Despite being late for my reservation, my company and myself were immediately seated by the sweet and sunny ladies at the host stand without question. I ended up getting the cold brew martini and shrimp and grits and my fellow diner got the same drink paired with the asparagus omelette and fried potatoes. Everything was delicious and I can't wait to go back and try out their other offerings.

    Very accommodating to people with allergies. My sister has celiac’s and they were very kind and informative about what dishes she could and could not have. She and I both got the chicken and potatoes. That was 10/10. Would definitely recommend to anyone with a food allergy and we will come back here again.
