Ri Ra Irish Pub - Charlotte

Meticulously restored in Ireland and shipped to the US, Ri Ra embodies everything that you would expect from a genuine Irish Pub. Ri Ra comes from the phrase "Ri Ra agus Ruaile Buaile," a phrase translating roughly as divilment, good fun or any sociable activity that improves with fine food, a nice pint of Guinness or dram of Uisce Beatha (whiskey). Ri Ra can be defined as place or state where exuberance and revelry prevail, where music and merriment compete and the conversation flows smooth as the Guinness ebbs in the glass. Slainte!

"Visited during a cheer competition, it was also an NFL playoff weekend. Made a reservation in advance for a large party, table was ready when we arrived, the place was packed. Great service, both food & drinks came out quickly. Waitstaff very knowledgeable about the food and the beer selection, made great recommendations. Food was good, had kids with us, they all did burgers and were happy. Adults all ordered Irish fare, it was really good. Great setting & crowd, would definitely return & recommend."

"You can tell they have moved from more of a restaurant to more of a watering hole. They stopped selling merchandise, cut the menu way down.
Still a decent place. Wish they went back to the old Ri'Ra"

"Since its arrival in Charlotte almost 20 years ago, RiRa has carved out a popular niche in the bar scene. This is a great place to go with a group for after-work drinks. The bar, built in the 1800s in Dublin, is gorgeous. Bar snacks are good. In other words, this is a place to have a good time - but not a "fine-dining" experience. Which is fine. Service is good, place is gorgeous, in an old-timey Irish-like sort of way. I will go back - just not for dinner!"

"Hoping for a quiet dinner before a concert but alas it was not to be. Outdoor and upstairs seating had been reserved for a private party so we had to take a table next to the bar which was noisy and rather hectic. Whilst I was informed when making the online reservation that requested seating wasn't guaranteed, I think it would be a good idea to let people know if there's a private affair taking up the two relatively peaceful areas."

"We only come downtown a couple of times year and always eat at Ri Ra's. Tuesday night was the opening of "Beauty and the Beast" at Blumenthal and pub was sorely understaffed, thus wait staff less than attentive. This is not our usual experience, but "food for thought" for you"

"There are lots of places to eat in Charlotte. The food here was greasy. The service was mediocre and several different people waited on us. It took a long time for them to initially greet us and get our drinks."

"Perfect pub atmosphere. Real old woodwork and charm. Good pub food menu. Great onion rings, good lamb sliders, and very good stew. Service was a bit slow, but we had the time to make the theater (in the next block), so we were fine. Do allow a bit more time than you otherwise think that you need. We will come back."

"We arrived at this bar at 2pm before a 6 pm ballgame. The staff was excellent! We stayed for 3 hours and ordered drinks and food throughout the afternoon. It was convenient to Bank of America Stadium and parking for $10 was easy to find. We had a party of 8 and were able to book a reservation. We dropped back by after the game, and it was way more crowded with the focus on drinks only."

"The appearance is misleading. This is a quaint restaurant/pub that has a good bar scene and a fun time for patrons. The best surprise was the food...outstanding! Rumchata bread pudding was wonderful!"

"We had a great dinner here, it had been a few years since we had eaten here and I was very pleasantly surprised at how good all the food was. However it didn't seem like there are enough regular tables, the place was packed at 5:30 and we had to sit at a high top with bar stools which wasn't very comfortable. I would preferred a regular table but otherwise we had a great experience."
