    I booked a reservation for Brunch on Sunday through Open Table for Irregardless Cafe. I booked a 2:15 reservation and was unaware that the restaurant closed their brunch service at 2:30. When we arrived we were told we had 8 minutes to place our order because the kitchen would be closing. I feel like the restaurant should not have such a late seating available if the kitchen will be closing. Our meal felt very rushed because of this. Had I known, I would not have kept my reservation. The food was just good. The service was good, but again, rushed.

    Oversized portions so that can be nice. You feel like you’re getting your money’s worth. However, we were served burnt focaccia. Half of our serving was black on top and the other half was dark brown. Decor is 80s/90s and my parents thought it was good. Waitress was very nice.

    Would have given ambience higher marks but we had a table in the middle of the restaurant with 5 of us at lunch ( no musicians) and needed to talk very loudly to be heard. Also suggest w texts that u let people know of cost of parking; we came from out of town and were blindsided. Also called restaurant after visit to get info on parking, as we pulled in and then back out and realized later we still may be charged. Was told we could drive by to get info, even when I said we were back in winston. Food excellent and Amanda/server, excellent.

    The last time we ate here it was amazing! This time the chorizo tasted like it was cooked yesterday and sat out. The avacado toast wasn't toasted so it was soggy with hummus on it. The hollandaise sauce had a strange, slightly spoiled taste to it and why did you do away with the cinnamon rolls? Obviously folks still like the place but these five customers will go elsewhere from now on. You expect more consistently when spending this amount of money for food and drinks. Not to mention you just want to eat a good meal.

    Family brunch. Best Gluten-free brunch menu ever! Option abound for all tastes. On our way to the airport immediately afterwards and they were kind enough to keep our luggage in a closet while we ate. Incredible food. Live music. Very friendly staff. You can’t do any better in my book.

    Had Sunday Brunch and it was delicious and service was exceptional Highly recommend a reservation as the place is small and quant which lends to its appeal We sat outside. There was someone inside playing music would could be a little bit of a distraction, but doesn’t take away from the experience I had Salmon Egg Benedict at its was amazing

    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
