My wife and I came here for lunch on Father's Day. The waitress took 20 minutes to come back and take our order after getting our drinks. The waitress actually took somebody's order who arrived at the restaurant after we did before she came back...More

Stopped here with friends for after dinner drinks and thoroughly enjoyed. Their wine/beer selections were good, and we enjoyed the live music. Great stop!

Had a pre-concert meal at the Ri Ra pub. The food was typical Pub food and was good but not great. We got there fairly early (5:00 PM) so it was not crowded Looks like the kind of place that would be crowded with after...More

Stopped into Ri Ra to grab a quick pint. The Guinness was correctly poured, and as tasty as you can expect for the States. Nice Pub atmosphere.

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit but is it "authentically Irish"? Probably as authentically Irish as the New York Italian restauarant in Evesham is authentically New York Italian (according to my New York partner, not very). I am not sure many Irish bars are Arsenal supporters rather...More

We love Irish Pubs and had heard Ri Ra was a great place to visit. We found it OK at best. The place was packed - primarily a single, young demographic (not that there is anything wrong with that:)). The service was OK - especially...More

Rí Rá opened its doors for the first time on March 14th, 1997. The pub survived a major fire in 2009 and will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2017. Meticulously restored in Ireland and shipped to the US, Rí Rá embodies everything that you would expect from a genuine Irish pub. The pub has been carefully restored from old Irish pubs and related salvaged artefacts including an original shop bar, a 19th century Victorian bar. The pub and fire restoration required a tremendous effort from a select group of master carpenters, glazers and painters. We are proud to showcase a unique and genuine Irish pub in Uptown Charlotte.
