Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Cameron Bar and Grill

A few days ago a coworker of mine recommend Cameron Bar and Grill for two reasons: the food and the unique photos on the wall. Knowing that I’m a sucker for local history, he suggested I stop by and check it out.

As promised, the walls were lined with some really breathtaking photos of Cameron Village from decades past. However, the appeal of the place was not simply limited to the wall decorations or atmosphere.

Cameron Bar and Grill is owned and operated by two brothers, Richard and R.D., who also run North Ridge Pub and Cafe Tiramisu. While speaking with Richard, every few minutes a different customer would come up and say hello, goodbye, or ask how he was. A good owner or manager of any restaurant gets to know his or her guests, and he certainly knew his.

As a vegetarian, I found the menu to be pretty lacking, but this is the case with most restaurants. I was able to pick an appetizer and a few side items to make a meal of, and it was delicious. It was reasonably priced, and the bartenders were very friendly and provided fantastic service.

Despite being a fairly new establishment, it has charm and character. It feels polished yet relaxed, casual but not too casual, and has a friendly front of the house staff. My only complaint is the number of televisions. I personally think one TV in a bar/restaurant is too many, and this place had several.

They are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
