Not sure what that other reviewer was drinking, but Guinness Draught, Harp Lager and Smithwicks Irish Ale are all the Irish beers this drinker needs, especially when Guinness is poured with as much love and care as it is here. The food menu is extensive and quite good, especially the Black Bean Queso appetizer, the South of the Border Salad and the Shepherd's Pie dinner. The crowd is friendly & fun and NOT predominantly students, unlike the other 100 bars on the street. B. D. Riley's is all about good food, fine beers and all sorts of live music 5 nights a week with no cover charge. And funa great place to meet people after work or make new friends. There are always interesting people to chat with at the bar.
Pros: Great beer, Surprisingly big menu, Adult crowd
Cons: Downtown parking, Crowded on Sat
