Come visit and experience the true feel of Ireland and the “Craic”(Fellowship and Fun) of your own local Irish Pub, in the heart of Austin’s 6th Street Entertainment District.

B.D. Riley’s is not part of some national chain–for nearly 15 years it’s been a locally-owned and operated, friendly, neighborhood pub serving a wide variety of award-winning foods, perfect pints of your favorite brews, great live music and the kind of crowd that always ensures a good time. C’mon in to the pub–make some new friends!

If you are looking for a pub to call your own, look no further. The “formula” is pretty simple: serve good food and perfect pints in a traditional pub environment with a friendly staff, and season the mix with a healthy measure of cool live music. The result is a classic, classy neighborhood Pub. It’s a little patch of Irish comfort–on 6th Street. We’d like to be your local pub on 6th Street.

The Pub itself is a showplace (and our history is impressive). Every day is a good day to visit–we’re open 365 days a year. Our Calendar always has the latest news and events, like televised sports, our prize-filled Pub Quiz trivia night, Live Music 7 nights a week with no cover charge, including each Wednesday after Trivia, a Sunday Irish Tune Session, and much more.

    Fantastic pub environment with great walls that open onto the streets of historic 6th Street Entertainment District. Music and laughter flout around while you catch the scores and highlights of various sports TVs around the place. Servers were quick and friendly.
    Ordered 8/2:
    – Fish & Chips – cooked perfect. Moist and flaky; big, thick cuts.
    – The Chicken Newton….a dizzy mix of pulled chicken, green apple, bacon, and four cheeses….amazing! Will take this idea home to WA to eat again!!

    B.D. Riley’s is to date my favorite bar on 6th Street in Austin! We were in ATX to visit my BF’s Mom and to celebrate his b-day!

    What drew us to this place while strolling up and down 6th Street was the amazing blues band (don’t remember their name) playing within. As you walk in they have these old light fixtures that display a soft ambient light. The place was pretty crowded with people ranging in ages of what seemed to be 20 something’s all the way into 50 something’s. They have booths tables and of course you can opt for the bar. The bartenders were on point and got the job done!
    As far as RR, sorry ladies, I did not visit these, so could not give you any review on them.

    Went to BD Riley’s to experience the first Sunday of the NFL. As a New England native I was drawn by the Patriots fan club but this environment is welcoming of all and is a perfect venue for a Sunday filled with football. $4 20 oz drink specials anchor a great menu of pub food.

    The game is on and the sound is turned up adding to the environment you expect and crave on a Sunday after a tough Saturday night. I can’t speak to the atmosphere on another night but I can say that the food and drinks won’t disappoint no matter the day of the week.

    In our first week in Austin my boyfriend and I tried to come up with unique ways to meet people. We learned that BD Riley’s was the Patriots bar and decided to watch the first Pats game here on Sunday, since we just moved from Boston. I wasn’t thrilled to be heading to a bar on 6th street, especially in the day time. When we got there I was surprised in a good way. The place was nicely decorated as an Irish pub and the crowd was not the college crowd that I was expecting. There was plenty of seating, great views of the game, and lots of welcoming Patriots fans. The drink specials that they offer on Sundays were great too. A number of beers are $4 for 20 oz glass and I ordered the $4 ruby red deep eddy drink. Ruby Red Deep Eddy Vodka Sodas with Lime are my new go to drink!

    We ended up meeting a few people who had recently moved from Boston and watched the rest of the game with them. We will definitely be back to cheer on the Patriots and meet more fans!

    I would come back here for sure. The atmosphere is a casual pub with old school rock and friendly service.

    I had fish and chips for dinner which was good, but a little greasy. I had a cocktail that was deep eddie (local drink) mixed with soda and lime. Very good.

    My waitress was super friendly and very helpful!

    If I lived here I think I would come here at least once a week just for the atmosphere!

    Great place to eat, just a chill casual pub with live music, screens, great beer and great food!! Had the Chicken Newton Sandwich (a pulled chicken sandwich) and it’s freaking awesome!!!

    I was there for TNF and it was on all the Pub,s TVs. The live band was great playing classic rock. The waitress was really nice and friendly!

    Definitely will return next time at Austin.
