Make a Reservation

In the early days of The Irregardless Cafe, there used to be a line, out front going down the block. It was this way for twenty years. After the fire, we started using waitlists. These lists made the wait much quicker and more orderly. Now we are using the internet and Opentable. Although we are using the word “reservations,” in fact the guests are being put on a list. Our guests, on a weekend, will often encounter a wait. We have always been an extremely busy restaurant. If other restaurants can predict how long guests will remain at a table, why can we not? The other restaurants do not have live music. The music changes everything. If the band is on point, our guests will often stay and listen. We can neither predict whether our guests will stay after dinner nor for how long. We do not rush guests who are enjoying their evening.

Please Note: OpenTable does not take reservations larger than 6 people. If you have a large party, please call 919-833-8898.

During holidays, reservations need to made via phone (919-833-8898) and will not be available via OpenTable.


Irregardless’ parking lot is a gentle stroll from the Café, located across the street and 2 doors north on West Morgan Street. Between 908 and 916 West Morgan Street.

Driving from Hillsborough Street on West Morgan Street – you will find the Irregardless parking lot on the left side of Morgan Street just a hundred yards from the roundabout, before the Café which is on the right side of Morgan Street.

Driving on West Morgan Street coming from downtown, you will pass Irregardless Café on your left and find Irregardless’ parking lot on the right side just about 100 yards past the Café.
