Ryleigh's has a small but good selection of beers on draft and in bottles. But the real reason to come to Ryleigh's is for the food, especially the oysters. When I go, I usually sit at the oyster bar where I get friendly conversation and good information about the oysters on offer (which change daily). If you get there before 7 during the week, the oysters are only $1/each. After starting with some delicious freshly shucked oysters, the rest of the menu is just as good. Standouts are shrimp & grits, pan-seared scallops and crab cakes. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual but it can get a bit cramped, even during the week. On-street parking is an issue but there is a small parking garage on E West St that offers free parking at night.

Ryleigh's is a good bar if you're seeking food. There are 12 beers on tap: Clipper City, Bass, Beamish, Blue Moon, Boddington's, Carlsberg, Miller Lite, Miller, Sam's Seasonal, Sams, Stella, and Yuengling. There are about 14 beers in bottles (including Magner's Cider and Natty Bo). A pint of Clipper City was $4.50. The place is fairly nice after a remodeling in ~ 2006. It has 2 levels with bars on either side of the lower level (tables in between) and an upper level. Both levels have plenty of wide screen TVs. DJs play there on Th, Fr, and Saturday. The food is pretty good with some fine oysters available. They have chalk on the bars that you can use on the slate bar top (this was kinda cool). The crowd tends to be a younger set. The bartender(ess) was both very cute and very nice. A good selection of wines was available, and the food menu looked really good.

Parking around Cross Street is not too good, but they do have a parking garage nearby. A few people were smoking, but that will end on February 1, 2007. Standard pint glasses for all beers.
