    The seasonal craft beer selection on draught is very good. Lots of local choices. Appetizers were tasty. Don't expect top notch service, though. The bartenders basically handle everything.

    Another gem in downtown Raleigh, serving great food and Rochefort, Orval, Westmalle and Saison Dupont, to name only a few of their many Belgian beers. If only there was a bar like this in my hometown!

    There’s ample outdoor seating, a roof-deck for those who want a city view, and a sidewalk cafe for anyone who prefers to people-watch. There are plenty of microbrews available. - © 2013 BuzzFeed, Inc

    Get the Bloody Mary! Made from Times' house made mix, served with cucumber, pepperoncini pepper, olive, and a 6oz. PBR! One of the best I've ever had (note: I got mine with extra horseradish)

    Pork nachos are probably the most popular menu item; get them! Also, we have a pretty baller team of chefs so make sure to ask about the lunch/dinner specials. Beer is always excellent so try some :)

    The Kale Caesar salad is my favorite and they always have great Belgians and local beer on draft. Great for weekday lunch or happy hour.

    The fried pork belly appetizer is heaven; i mix all of the sauces together. Cuban sandwich rocks. Pork enchilada is awesome and the house bloody mary has a nice bite to it.

    Their hamburger is rated best in Raleigh - for good reason ! But today, I'm falling for the Buffalo chix sandwich - another winner. Just the right amount of heat & spice.

    The steak carnitas tacos are excellent! High quality steak and excellent salsa topping. A friend had the chicken tacos and she said they were excellent also.

    So many beers and the sangria is great on a hot day. Everyone here under 30 looks like they chair the Mumford and sons fan club though... Crowd trying so hard

    I don't even know where to start. Try the beers on tap - all of their food is amazing, but get the burger med. rare with pepper jack - ALSO THE PORK NACHOS.

    You know, I love the food and "ambience" of the Times, but it comes down to service. And the service here is consistently awesome.

    Haven't tried the food but the atmosphere is great and there is a lot of room between the three levels. One of which is outside.

    Chad is the coolest person ever. Nicest manager and such a legit person! He'll make your experience at the Times out of this world!

    Do not sit in their rooftop patio. Its hot as Hades. They are still waiting for permits for umbrellas so its not their fault! Everything else about this place is epic and I love the servers.

    Huge space. Craft beer. Cozy. Try the amazing Bloody Mary. It's like an appetizer & drink in one.

    The Pork BBQ Nachos are really good if you ask them to replace the pork bbq with the chicken mix from the chicken tacos. I know it sounds crazy, but srsly. It's GOOD! My friend Prachi suggested it!

    Great place to try craft brews and the food is top-notch as well. Best burger in raleigh, and check out the mantle on the bar wall that displays a pint glass that Obama drank a PBR from.

    Right in downtown Raleigh. Has a great vibe inside, good for lunch, and the menu is printed on a fake newspaper.

    New menu and the food quality has taken a hit. If you are a fan of the nachos they used to have you are in for a surprise?

    Careful after 10pm on Saturday and Sundays, it becomes amateur hour. Nothing but pastel popped collars. Best nachos ever.

    Try the crispy chicken tacos; they're great. The loaded hand-cut fries are also super yummy.

    Great food. Large menu. Reasonably priced. Plus a carafe of DELICIOUS sangria is only $15.

    The servers are really nice and it is always a good choice for drinks but the food quality here has seriously declined. I keep giving the food another chance but I'm done, it keeps getting worse.

    A good draft selection but not as good as it has been in the past. They got rid of the hatachino, which was the main reason I came here.

    Great food, great drinks. The Bloody Mary is a local favorite - it's spicy and comes with a side of PBR.

    Good beer selection...unfortunately the wait staff are infinitely more pretentious than the patrons. Great spot if you want to be treated like a jerk. (im looking at you james)

    Try the sangria with Four Roses bourbon added to it. Let your hangover melt away. Sit with Jimbo (smoking times) for friendly service.

    Try the Samuel Smith Chocolate Stout, it tastes like a vanilla cigar, in a very good way!
