The mussels app was also very good. We chose buffalo blue cheese fries and sweet potatoe fries both very good. There is very... More

Visited for the first time to see the Irish band the Wild Colonial Bhoys on a Tuesday night. We enjoyed a few beers, awesome Guiness gravy & fries and a live band on a chilly autumn night. Can't wait to come back to try their full menu!

My wife and I were in Carnegie and saw Riley's outdoor seating area and heard music so we decided to give it a try. Nothing fancy, very Irish pub type food, but we loved it! We had their Reuben - best we've had in years- and the fish and chips were good. The outdoor area reminded me of a small... More

Riley's is a typical local pub, but I like the upbeat attitude of the servers and fun atmosphere. A local singer/pianist provides lively entertainment in the evening. The fish and chips are delicious. I asked for non battered fish and was mistakenly served battered. The server apologized and corrected the order without a fuss. Irish draft beer is offered with...

My husband and I were looking for somewhere new to try and I suggested this place. The food was great! I had the chicken sandwich and my husband had (hot!) wings. The atmosphere was cozy and the staff was very friendly. The music in the bar was the perfect volume and there was live music outside. We would definitely come... More

What a find! We stopped in to avoid rush hour traffic and found a gem. Irish beer and music were good but then the jazz combo started playing and they were fantastic!! Food was very good along with the service. So glad we found this place.

I found Riley's almost by accident, as I was in the neighborhood to go to a different restaurant, but saw this place and added it to my list. I am glad that I did! The shepherd's pie was very, very good, and the fish and chips was very large and very good. This place is definitely worth returning to.
