    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.

    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

    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!

    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 :)

    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)

    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.

    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.

    What once served as the headquarters for the Raleigh Times now offers microbrews and imports, half-pound burgers, Reuben sandwiches made with house-cured corned beef and BBQ pork nachos. Read more

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

    Fried pickles, pork nachos, and an awesome Belgian beer selection. Quick yet friendly and knowledgable bartenders. Great place and Obama gives it two thumbs up!!!

    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 used to love this Raleigh icon but the food has really gone down hill. My service was bad and my homemade chips were all burned. The mojitos and ambiance are still great thought!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Best bleu cheese buffalo sandwich! Bloody Mary's w/ side of PBR was delish too! Great atmosphere!

    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.

    This place is pretty chill but on numerous occasions the bouncers would violently throw people out right in front of you for little to no reason.

    Don't spoil the delicious food by drinking PBR when they have the best Belgian beer selection in town! Ask your server for a recommendation.

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

    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!

    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?

    FYI they kick you off the sidewalk in front of their building if you are holding outside food or drink. Evidently they expect you to walk in the street.

    I hate to go against the crowd here, but the pork nachos were a bit dry. They're good, but not 70 likes, 9 of the top 10 tips, good. Maybe get guac.

    Finally got around to trying that Asian Tuna Salad, and it's sooooo good. It's $10.95, but man, was it worth it. Highly recommended!

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

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

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

    Jay Winfrey is one of the best bartenders in Raleigh. Let him concoct a cocktail or suggest a beer that will blow yer mind.

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

    Really really really small pours. Got a bourbon neat and got maybe an ounce. Quite disappointing. Stick to beer so you don't get screwed.

    Well kinda a easy choice. If you live in Raleigh likely have been here. But it bears repeating one of the best places in town.

    If you are a fan of NC BBQ, get the pork BBQ nachos. Definitely the most amazing thing on the menu.

    Don't sit on the side where Smoking Times used to be. The servers and bartenders over there are super crabby.

    Average and overpriced...once again. Great beer selection though if you don't mind paying $5-$7 for a 10oz. pour
