It's busy. It's an unusual layout. Get over it. The people working here are awesome. And the beer is killer.

Raleigh Times has a warm feel - their staff are attentive and their drinks are great. It's a fun place to meet friends for conversation - but it can be very crowded at times.

Very good meal and you could tell the ingredients were fresh. I'd definitely recommend to out of towners looking for a place to eat.

Does Raleigh times have awesome food? YES. I can honestly say I've never had anything bad from the burgers to the fish tacos. However, my most favorite item that the Raleigh Times creates are their cheese-covered cheese fries. Utter perfection. Local ingredients and potatoes so fresh and crispy you're okay with the impact the carbs will have on your backside.... More

Service was good, food was average, I'm sure there are better restaurants in downtown. Locals seemed to like it though.

International Bluegrass Festival in Ral so the whole DT area crazy. An oasis on the top floor of Raleigh Times. Our server (wish I knew his name but red hair and beard, tall and thin) did an amazing job with 10 tables on the roof that changed quickly. RT wisely limited the menu as there were SOOOO many in town,... More

Historic building in downtown. You can dine on the first or second floor. On the second floor is an entrance to the rooftop where you can also dine. There is usually some sort of band playing on the second floor. There are bars on the first and second floor. After we ate our dinner we went out onto the rooftop.... More
