Such a great sandwich. And all
If the staff were very friendly and attentive.
This last day of Paddyfest had very energetic Irish dancing by a wonderful group of young ladies in beautiful costumes! The entertainment made the birthday celebration worthwhile. While the food was good the service was slow. Two of us had the Irish Benedict and that was good. The mimosas were very good.
Food was good but average for the price ($6 for two extremely small scones for brunch when you can get larger ones cheaper at Starbucks or Amelie’s). If you’re here for drinks, it’s a good place and environment but for food, better to go elsewhere in the city.
We had an incredible time celebrating St. Patrick Day at Ri Ra Irish Pub. The food was wonderful and the cocktails were perfect. The staff was awesome even in the middle of that huge party. Loved everything
I highly recommend. This is one class act establishment. Very friendly staff, the food is amazing, the atmosphere as well was conducive of a great pub.
We’re in town to see the NCAA games on Friday and needed a place close to Spectrum to eat between games. Is conveniently located just 3 blocks away. Good food and beer. Staff very friendly, especially even when the place was packed. Definitely recommend to friends and family whenever we return to the Charlotte area.
My husband and I stumbled upon this place as we were visiting Charlotte for the weekend celebrating our anniversary and wanted a place for brunch. We didn’t realize their was an important rugby match and their were many people there already a little after opening.
Regardless, we received great service and the food was amazing. I loved that they went above and beyond for those wanted to watch the rugby game with a projector and nice size screen in the main area.
I absolutely loved this place and plan on coming when I can in future visits to Charlotte.
Came for the 6 nations match. Our breakfast and Guinness were awesome. So was the service. Plus Ireland won.
My husband and I have made many trips to Ireland, and we enjoy its food, fun, and Smithwick's ale on tap -- all things we also are able to enjoy at Ri Ra. We have always had good service at Ri Ra, but this visit it was especially good. I recently developed some peculiar dietary needs, and Ellen, our server, did her best to understand those needs and to suggest menu items that would meet them. In the end, Ellen suggested something that was not on the menu but that met my desire for something that was delicious, special, and within my dietary restrictions. Thank you so much, Ellen!
Always a pleasure coming to the pub! Staff and all are the best as usual. Never a problem.
We had requested on our Open table reservations, to have them sing to our twins. When we got there I reminded the hostess. She said she would say something to the manager. We still had to find the waiter to get him to bring two desserts, but the singing never happened. Disappointed, especially since there was a place for special requests when we made reservations.
Best fish and chips ever! Also one of the few places that understands a shandy and how to get it right. We really enjoyed our pre-theater meal.
The fish and chips are fantastic!
Had a table 'held' for 6pm but didn't get seated until 6:40. Food was good but not extraordinary. Had a Guinness essential and it was ice cold which is way to cold for a proper Guinness.
Awesome as always!! A real favorite!!
Our main issue is that we had a reservation for a large number of people and when we arrived we were ignored for about 10 minutes by the hostess and then after confirming we had a reservation, the hostess informed us that they had no tables for a group our size. We were very frustrated because we made a reservation knowing it would be hard to seat all of us easily as a walk in. I was disappointed.
So convenient to grab a bite before a show! The theater is 2 blocks away! Made a res. through Open Table . Glad we had because it’s a busy bar! The tables are all bar height so not the comfiest but the place has a nice atmosphere and service! Food was OK, nothing to write home to Ireland about but surprisingly good value , especially for uptown. Meal for two with two drinks each was only $60!
The food was great. Our server, Tom, was very good and knowledgeable about the menu.
Food was fantastic. Would recommend the fish and chips. Service was good. The only problem we experienced was the noise level was not conducive to a date.
Great location and service.
Very authentic looking pub. Granddaughter loved the French toast, my burger wasn't the best I've ever had. Ordered medium well and after a real long wait it came out very rare!! Waitress was extremely slow.
Great experience all around. Veggie burger was amazing! I had the cucumber and radish salad as a side and it was fresh and delicious. Loved that there were many vegetarian options as well as clean grass fed beef and Icelandic fish. Great atmosphere and service. Will be back to try the fish (haddock) and chips.
Overall a very good experience. Host was having to clear tables to seat patrons. She did not seem to have any help. Otherwise the food was good and the server was nice.
A friend and I met here for a pre-theater dinner, primarily for the easy access to the theater on a snowy evening. We were seated by the cosy fireplace, which lent a lovely atmosphere to our dining experience. I was favorably impressed that the Pub was quiet, making it easy to enjoy conversation with my dinner partner.
We chose to share a starter of Traditional Potato Cakes, which were served with sour cream and a bit of mixed greens and balsamic reduction. The cakes were divine... I would return just to savor them again!
As our mains, my friend chose the haddock fillet, which was a very generous portion, accompanied by house made tartar sauce and hand cut fries. My choice was the Irish Cider Glazed Pork Chop with grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes. I must confess the mashed potatoes were not creamy as described in the menu. In fact, they were very dry, disappointing after experiencing the super creamy potato cheese cakes!
Our server was attentive and provided friendly, efficient service throughout our dinner. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our Irish dining experience, and are eager to return to sample more menu selections on offer.
We meet friends from Tampa relocating to Charlotte, NC what a great time indeed.
Was accepting reservations in opentable but when we arrived for our reserved time they said they didn't accept reservations and so we were not able to be seated.
Service was slow, I had Corned Beef & Cabbage. The Cabbage was cold and the Corned Beef was tough. It was a busy Saturday night. Nice atmosphere and upbeat mood. Would probably go again just for the convenience to the Symphony
As a group of six, in a booth in the bar area, we had an excellent time, great service & very good food. Our waiter was friendly and perfectly attentive and great at anticipating so we were never left wanting for anything for a second. The fish of the Fish & Chips was excellent. The fries could have been a bit crispier for my taste but everyone seemed to enjoy them well enough, so no harm. Hadn’t been in a long time but will be back very soon.
Delicious food and great ambiance! The best fish and chips!
Great food. Reasonably priced. Good drinks. Corned beef and cabbage was delicious and the avacado smash appetizer was outstanding. Server was very nice and helpful. Would definitely go there again.
Crowded. Had to want even with a reservation. The pork chop i ordered was extremely dry. The potatoes tasted like instant.
Close to blumenthal for pre- theater dining- bar food mostly - Reuben was very good - homemade chips were ok but not hot - friend had salmon which was on a bed of radishes & cucumbers & she enjoyed but did not include a side - our appetizer was delicious like bruschetta with avocado - I probably won’t go again because overall I don’t feel it is a good value - I had one glass of wine & friend had water & bill was almost 60.00 with tip
Loved our experience here!
Food and atmosphere were amazing! Brought my husband and I back to our trip to Ireland. Service was also very good! We were on a time crunch as we had a show to get to, and server was very accommodating.
Some of the slowest service ever. Have been numerous times before but all good till this time. Slow on every level, drinks and food.
Service was extremely slow. It took two hours to get our food.
Wow...this was really bad. Made a reservation for six before a show at Belk Theatre, the proximity to the theatre was about the only positive I have to say. Reservation was not on file, server brought water to the table, but told us that they were still washing dishes and had no glasses. Drinks were not good, very slow, and came one at a time, food sat way too long under the heat lamp, over 45 minutes from order to table plus another 5 minutes or so to have someone bring us silverware. Food quality was poor, cold Shepherd's pie, dry and cold pork chop, fish and chips was more like fish and mush. Not sure what the problem was, they seemed moderately busy, but not slammed. Generally a very poor experience, no need to go back.
We had a party of 13. Everyone loved their meal and the service was great.
We had a great Thanksgiving evening at Ri Ra's. The food was delicious. The service was good. The live band was great. The only issue was a bad odor. We moved to another table, it still smelled slightly but it was never taken care of. Other than that it was a good experience.
Had thanksgiving brunch there. Very nice but TVs were loud
