After being at this location for quite a long time, this place has kept with the times, while keeping it's original vibe. We had Sunday Brunch and music provided by a delightful folk singer (apologies not know name:-) All I can say is "pancakes." It is Sunday and brunch so I splurged. Highly recommend Banana selection. Note: these are enough... More

I've eaten here many times and always had a great meal. I love the vegetarian options, but the menu has something for everyone. Can't go wrong with brunch, lunch or dinner. Service is also consistently good. Helps to make a reservation on weekends. Nice live entertainment.

The restaurant was really good. The staff were spot on. Our waiter noticed we had a child with us and he was very engaging. The atmosphere was great and there was live entertainment. The food was really good. They provide Vegan options which was a plus for our party as we have two vegans in the mix. All in all... More

Varied menu including vegetarian options. I had a great soft shell crab special. Good beer and wine by the glass selection as well as cocktails. Friendly service. We arrive at 5:30 without a reservation and were seated quickly. The restaurant was full half way through our meal and they do take reservations via open table so I'd recommend that.

The Irregardless Cafe has been the go-to place for vegetarians and Raleighites for decades...and it still is. Innovative cuisine that appeals offers great variety, friendly and professional table service and nightly music make for a great dining experience. And, Arthur Gordon has been able to keep the prices reasonable. A can't miss choice.

This was the quaintest restaurant...not in size...but in charm. The location is perfect right at the start of the city in a little neighborhood. Great place to eat outside. Food was delicious! Mojitos were great. I will certainly return when/if I'm back in Raleigh.

Where to start. First of all if you can't find something to eat at Irregardless you are in trouble. They have everything from vegan to duck confit, all with a Mediterranean flair. I had the stuffed acorn squash. The amount of flavor in the stuffing was incredible. It came with black beans that had roasted beets in them. I know... More
