Rí Rá Irish Pub, in Mandalay Place, epitomizes a true Irish pub experience, with a comfortable neighborhood environment where conversation flows as smoothly as Guinness ebbs in the glass. Constructed from a pub meticulously restored in Ireland then shipped to Las Vegas, it’s a hotspot for locals and visitors alike, offering an impressive line-up of live music, a comprehensive drink list and fare that defies pub standards.

Overall, pretty good. The fish was overcooked and that pretty much ruined it for me.

I had the salmon and husband had the coffee pulled pork. Both were excellent and satisfying. The snickerdoodle cookie dessert was the bomb. Loved it.

Great food, will return. Service can be on the slower side so careful if you're headed to a show.

The only problem with this place is that they tag your reservations as no-shows. I went to the restaurant twice during my week in Vegas, and both times I got a no-show message from OpenTable. I had to find the manager and explain the situation to make it right. Everything else was perfect..

Tea Time! 7 ladies, seated in the front of the house Snug for a full Tea at 1 PM. I have been to two other English teas here in LV, and all are similar. Ri Ra has a reasonable price ($25 or $35 options), really good food (although Waldorf desserts are more colorful, whimsical and delicious). I personally love all Irish Pubs, and it was great to have a pint of SmithWicks after Tea! Also a positive at Ri Ra is you can free valet (tip on way out) in the Mandalay Shoppes, go up the escalator, and you are there. And when ready to leave, text the valet and your car will be ready. Our server was Andrea, and though it was her first tea, she was prepared, knowledgeable, attentive and pleasant. I would definitely recommend Ri Ra Irish Pub. I will be back with my spouse and friends to try their other meals and nightly live Irish music. This is a great place for couples, groups, or even large groups, as there are separate rooms available.

Great spot. Cool bar actually made from a bar in Ireland. You’d never know you’re in a shopping area of a hotel/casino.

Best fish and chips this side of the Atlantic! Whenever I’m in Vegas I have to go to RiRa. This trip we started with the heavenly Scotch Eggs. I swear the deviled mousse is straight from heaven! Then the fish and chips. If you’re not in a fish mood order the Curry, half and half. You won’t be disappointed. For desert we had the Knickerbocker Glory and it was so good! You won’t go wrong with the bread pudding either but make sure you order it early. It takes 20-25 minutes to cook but is worth every second!

Irish style pub in Vegas with true Irish food selections. Music most nights (Irish of course) and prices reasonable for a Vegas venue. Casual atmosphere, great service.

Ri Ra Irish Pub is over priced for standard "pub food". Admittedly, all Las Vegas strip restaurants are over priced, but given the poor quality of the food - it is really significant.

At best, very average food. Scotch eggs were disastrous, not authentic at all. Server tried way too hard to upsell everything. Mains were ok. Disappointing overall. Had higher expectations. Wouldn’t go back.

The night before I had pork chop at Red Square. Had to go to Ri Ra the next night for their wonderful pork chop just to get the proper taste. Unfortunately my husband had the fish & chips (usually outstanding), but this time it was super greasy like it wasn't drained.

The food was excellent so were the drinks, a little expensive but well worth it. We got our food fast, but after that our server was horriable never came back to ask if we needed more drinks or anything. Her personality was a mix between rude and not caring. So overall food,drinks and atmosphere excellent service was horriable. So if it wasn't for the food being great my 50th birthday would have been rewened.

Great food and great music - will definitely go back when next in Vegas.
We had expected it to be far busier on a Sunday evening but there was no wait.

Wonderful classic Irish pub with wood in the pub area and accessories shipped from Ireland. Irish pub food is excellent. And, they serve our favorite Guinness and Murphys’ beers on tap. It is very reasonably priced for a bleary good relaxed and very good food Las Vegas restaurant!

We went for afternoon tea. The experience was wonderful, our waiter was Irish and we ended up adding Irish beverages to the tea—a scone and Guinness is a fine combination. The tea food itself was ok—the sandwiches were cut too large and the bread was a tad stale, but the fillings were tasty. I would go back to this pub but not likely for tea.

I am a fan of this place but our last experience was a tad disappointing. The fish was on point the chips, not so much.
They seemed under cooked and very tough to eat.
When brought to the attention of my server nothing was done about it. They should have at least discounted.

Sadly it had to come out of his tip.

I usually love RiRa, but just wanted to post this latest experience.

We are repeat customers and looking forward to revisiting RiRa and were not disappointed. Because we had booked the meal for 4th July we popped in the night before and requested a table in the bar area so we could listen to the band playing that night and RiRa gave us a prime seat. The steaks were fantastic, served with a mound of chips, mushrooms and onions - perfect!! The Magners cider was ice cold and the band played some great music, interacted with the crowd and made the night special, we will return!!

Great food. Good quality, simply presented and plentiful!
Lovely gin & tonic served as it should be and a great selection of ciders.
The live music was a little disappointing- more country than Irish style so it kind of spoiled the ambiance of the Irish pub theme.
Would still go back and recommend to others though because it was a good experience overall.

The pork chop is the best I’ve ever had. Dessert was a hot snickerdoodle with vanilla ice cream. How can you go wrong. Our waitress Demy was great!

Having toured Ireland for 10 days earlier this year, I am always on the lookout for a "traditional" Irish Pub in my travels. During a recent visit to Las Vegas, I sought out Ri Ra Irish Pub and had an amazing time.
You are not going to find a bigger prortion or better prepared Fish and Chips ANYWHERE!... Hands down the best I have had (even in Ireland!). The Guinness stout tasted every bit as good as I had in the Guinness Store in Dublin and in the various pubs I dropped in on while in Ireland. To top my experience off, the entertainment of live Irish music was the finishing touch to a wonderful evening.
I intend to make Ri Ra a mandatory stop on any future visits to Las Vegas!

The food and service were both phenomenal. I thought the food was already great, and then I ordered the bread pudding. Hands down the best bread pudding I have had. Everyone in our party was impressed and had a terrific time.
