There is a $7 cover charge if you are staying for the show - they have a fantastic bbq menu as well as typical bar food. Their drink menu is extensive and the service was excellent. Ryles has a very comfortable atmosphere and the show...More

We went to Ryles for the first time this past Sunday for the Sunday jazz brunch and thoroughly enjoyed it! Yoko Miwa is an amazing jazz pianist, the service was wonderful and food was very nice (very generous portion, too). We can't believe we waited...More

Our friends had made a reservation and we were seated promptly. We were given the choice of sitting up in the front near the music or in the back. We chose in the back so that we could still chat. The service was fast, efficient...More

The Ryles is part of the S&S deli family - great food! My company has parties here - very good food and reasonable! This place is a treasure.

Not much to say, the place didn't really have a nice vibe for me. It was kind of empty and most people there were not my age (33).

Went to see No Static - pretty good cover band and a really cute space. They don't oversell tickets so you don't feel crowded. There was plenty of room to dance too - all in all fun night. We'll def. go back!
