David Kelly and Ciaran Sheehan started Ri Ra when they opened their first Ri Ra pub in Charlotte, NC in March 1997. The two grew up together in Dublin, Ireland and emigrated separately to America Ri Ra Irish Pub & Restaurant strives to create the ultimate dining and entertainment experience. Their goal is to deliver the quintessential Irish Pub experience. Ri Ra is meticulous in pursuit of this goal, from sourcing authentic and often famous old pubs in Ireland such as the Olympia Theatre, which first opened in Dublin in 1879. Once restored and shipped to the US, Ri Ra follows through with a sizable investment in its most valuable resource, people. Their overall goal is not only to exceed their guests dining, drinking and entertainment expectations, but to create an environment that in terms of quot;welcoming' is second to none.

09/20/2010 - Terrible Service
There was a group of 14 that went to this pub for a batchlorette Party. When we go there they did not have table set up for us after we made a reservation weeks before and we called the night before to confirm. After 20 minutes they then set up a table to fit the group. Our waitress then took our drink order, skipping over several of the girls. Some of these girls did not get their drink order placed until after they were served their meal. Then we all placed out meal. When the meals came out 12 our of the 14 meals were incorrect. Thinks were missing and order were incorrect. One girl only ordered a side salad which she did not receive until everyone had finished their meals and when she received the salad it was incorrect. At this point we were completely baffled by the service. The waitress did not ONCE come over to ask if we wanted a second drink or to see how our food was. We had to ask whatever waitress was around to get us a drink or attempt to get the missing/incorrect food. We presented our concern to the manager on duty who paid little to no attention to our HORRIBLE service/experience. When all was said and done we received the bill listed at the end was "gratuity added" The restaurant had the NERVE to add 20% gratuity to the bill.. We understood gratuity was going to be added but 20% for a waitress that screwed up almost everyones order along with completely ignoring us was outrageous! I would not recommend eating at the establishment. We had the worst experience every and I would NEVER go back to this restaurant again!!!!

Fun bar, get's a little collegy at night when the place sort of turns into a club, but food is great, people are really nice, and it's a great spot for a Sunday afternoon drink with the boys.
