Irish
Rí Rá is located in an historic bank building, designed by Boston based Harper & West, that was completed in 1931. The pub opened for the first time in March 1999, and was extended in 2002 with the addition of the Library area. In February 2012, The Whiskey Room opened its doors. As you enter Rí Rá, you can imagine yourself walking through a door that leads you across the pond to experience the best pubs of Ireland. The pub interiors were salvaged and restored in Ireland prior to being shipped to Vermont. We are proud to showcase a unique and genuine Irish pub in the heart of Burlington.

    We had a great experience at RiRa!! We got to the reservation a little early and were seated right away. We sat outside where all the action was. Burlington is such a fun vibe with all the people, live music, and things to do. My daughter got a burger that was perfectly cooked, my husband got the rueben, I had the summer salad, and my son got the star dish the Irish chicken curry. Service was great and the food was amazing! We will definitely be back! :)

    Went on Saturday night, noticeably tables available throughout the restaurant and we were told hour wait. When checking Open Table, there was availability. Booked on Open Table and got in right away. Odd experience but none the less had a good dinner. Food arrived hot and was delish.

    We booked this restaurant due to past experience in Providence RI location. We found this location moderately different. Menu was underwhelming with limited options. The service was just ok. Hostess was uninterested and preoccupied after we checked in. Tried to put us at a high top when reservation was for dining area. Dinner came out wrong for my wife and the replacement meal arrived way after I was finished with my dinner. She was unimpressed with the second attempt. We were thinking of trying desert, however we didn’t risk it. Next time in Burlington, we will try a different place.

    had a group of 6; seated early even though our whole party hadn't yet arrived; solid cocktails; great beer list; good food. A bit loud, but it's a gathering place, so completely expected.

    We frequent RiRa's in Burlington quite a bit. Their menu has several options for gluten free folks. We can usually get a reservation so there's no wait. Food is consistently good and service is terrific. My husband says their fish and chips is unmatched in Burlington.

    The Veggie Burger was terrific. I liked the cole slaw a lot. My wife's sweet potato fries were thin, crispy and delicious. We had a quiet corner so it was quiet and nice for conversation. The highlight of our experience was the server. She was smart, friendly and, attentive. I was a very nice experience.

    Great service from our server, good food, great poutine and pretzel with beer cheese. Good beer selection, cocktails very expensive for ingredients. many very loud groups, had to wait to talk to other members of my party several times because there was no use when no one could hear. Been several times, food usually great and noise levels always really high

    Very charming outdoor seating in the street. Our waitress was prompt and attentive but also gave us our privacy. We got the poutine, pretzels, and the grilled cheese. The poutine and grilled cheese were both very very good. 10/10 would recommend!

    Our server Adine was wonderful - friendly & proficient. The cottage pie & Irish chicken curry dishes were outstanding - 5-star. The burgers, fish & chips and french fries were delicious. My friend remarked that the Manhattan he ordered was the best he’s had. As a party of 8, we were seated at a table right in front of the large screen TV. When the football game started, the volume in the restaurant was increased dramatically making it difficult to converse.
