    Gluten free fantastic. Well executed comfort food. Dropped in for a late night dinner. Good guitar music live. Small crowd. Quiet and fast. Sat in large booth by the bar. Waiter was nice and took good care of us.

    Lillian was our server and she made the meal even more enjoyable. She was patient while we planned our entire meal around the wine and served us with a smile. The brussel sprouts app was wonderful and I would return for that alone. The mushroom stroganoff was good, but when I return, I plan to order the spanakopita that my husband enjoyed. It looked divine. We also enjoyed the chocolate peanut butter bombe for dessert.

    The food is always great at Irregardless but the noise level is very uncomfortable. We had to shout to hear each other and found our throats to be sore when we left. I don’t know what can be done about the noise level but I sure wish someone would come up with something.

    Great experience. Had not been since the pandemic started. My only complaint is parking. Had to park in the pay lot. Upon leaving we gps the free parking down the street at 840 west Morgan. Will take that option next time and come a little early. Meal was great and service was great. Got our food in record time. Also enjoyed the music. Thanks

    The food and service was above average and the plant based options were amazing. However I do believe them to be overpriced and a few dollars less they would be great.

    The Only reason I would not recommend it to a friend or something I’m sure you’re already aware of. The parking for the restaurant has gotten so bad that I think it’s going to deter people from wanting to eat there. I understand that when the restaurant was sold that parking lot it was not part of the deal so I understand you probably can’t do anything about it but it is going to be a problem.

    I love the fact that Irregardless uses seasonal and local foods in their dishes and that they have a number of vegan offerings. I was disappointed in the mushroom stroganoff. It lacked any robust flavor. I could have made better at home….and that defeats the purpose of me going out to eat. Also, the food at my table came out 2-3 mins after ordering…that was fast and my company and I felt rushed. We were asked if we wanted to go boxes after only 5 mins of eating. We both drove over an hour to meet for dinner and catch up after years, so that was not the service we were expecting.

    We had such a great experience! I had the Honey B drink and it was so good. My husband had the spanakopita and I had the mahi mahi. He described his as filled with gooey cheesy goodness. My mahi was cooked well and the green beans had a great grilled taste. We had the peanut butter bombe for dessert and it was divine, I wish it was bigger because it was so good. Tabitha (I think was her name) was amazing and so sweet.

    There was a delicious cider on draft that we both ended up getting, and we split the bread appetizer, which was pretty tasty. The udon noodles were fantastic (base spicy wasn't too spicy, which was good with me) and the fried tofu was some of the best I've had. And the short ribs were amazing, falling apart tender with the fat rendered perfectly, and the croquet with it was just so rich and good. Also, there was a musician that started like right after we were seated, and they were very talented and the music was very relaxing.

    I can't say enough positive things about our visit today. We had some wonderful cocktails at the bar to start, served by a lovely human with great vibes. And then, a lovely brunch served by the amazing Emily B. We loved their awesome energy. There was live music playing but it was at the perfect noise level to enjoy the music and still be able to have a conversation. And as always, they took special care with my allergies. Gluten free and dairy free items are hard to come by at restaurants, but not at Irregardless. And the best part is that I have never had a cross contamination problem eating here.

    Grew up in Raleigh, and this was a regular spot on to go to for many occasions, the new owner/management has done an amazing job of continuing the wonderful parts about this long time staple in the area. The service, food, and music was amazing!
