Noisy, Average Food Needs a Cleaning Says It All. Service is slow and scattered but they try. Won't be coming back.

Went for lunch while staying in Oshawa. Great selection of beers which made my husband very happy. Had the pulled pork sandwich with salad. Very delicious and juicy. The side salad was huge. My husband had soup and smoked meat. The sandwich was fine but the soup was really good.

Food is fantastic, service can be a little slow at times but staff are very friendly and efficient. We work right next door and we can always call our order in ahead of time and it will be ready when we get there. I have also been here for dinner, great pub fare ample servings nice atmosphere

As one member of a party of ten, we headed to Riley's with the anticipation of getting some sort of discount. Names were mentioned, but no discount to be had, and no effort made in that direction. (Next time, we head to the General.) Riley's had no apple cider in stock. I guess we should have asked beforehand. Viewed from... More

Located across the street from our hotel and minutes away from the GM Centre. Reservations recommended if going for dinner when an event is on at GM Centre. I had the French onion soup to start, it was ok, had too much oregano for my liking. I followed up with medium wings. They were good and meaty but tasted like... More

Visited Rileys at 5:30pm on a Saturday. The place was dead. Sat up on the patio and were all alone. Hostess asked us for a drink order but must have assumed we wouldn't want to eat there because we had to ask her for menus. Sat waiting for drinks for at least 20 min. and no one returned to take...

Ended a hectic work week with coworkers on the patio for drinks and food. No sun as it is so shaded by the parking garage. But nice just the same. Drinks were good food was pretty good. 2 people had quesadillas which were soggy. Everything else was okay. Our waitress must have went on break as we didn't see her... More

Riley's is our "go to" place when we are heading to an event at the General Motors center. The staff is always friendly, accommodating and awesome! The food is always well prepared and timely. The spinach salad and wings are super!!!

A great spot in downtown Oshawa. Beside a municipal parking building and directly across from the Oshawa General Motor Centre. Convenient to the Regent Theatre. This is a great multi-floor establishment that has live music on the weekends. We specialize in in hosting functions. We have an extensive draught beer list and a diverse menu that offers something for everyone. Drop by for lunch or a dinner get together.
