Classic Happy Hour Spot! – I've been to the Royal Exchange several times. I always have a great time. It's a great place to meet new people. The apps are pretty good and the bartenders are always friendly. It gets packed on Fridays, so you might want to go early to get a table. There's a really high guy-girl ratio, so, if you're a single woman looking for your mr. right or right now, you might want to check it out.

Crowded! – This place is crowded at all times. Whether you go in for lunch, or after work for happy hour. However, it is worth it. The chili is delicous, they make a decent burger and beef dip, and the grilled flat iron steak is yummy!

Prepare to wait a bit, and if you are going after work for happy hour, prepare to stand or get their early to secure a table. Ladies, tis true...there are way more men in here than there are women (and boy do they have egos!). Still fun, but I never stay here for more than an hour or must move on.

Overpriced boring financial district spot – Your typical array of meathead jocks and their hangers on congregate here after work to booze and mingle. BORING! On top of the mindless clientele, the drinks are overpriced and the service is way below average, but they remain entitled and snotty. Overall, I would say don't waste your time on this one and try somewhwere else.

Good for Post-work – Royal Exchange is a top spot to meet friends after work for a beer or cocktail. Friendly staff and group of people where you can talk/hear friends and meet new people as well. Royal Exchange has been a staple in my groups social circle for many years.

eh – it's alright. the food used to be alot better, but its gone really downhill in the past year. plus, it's way overpriced and it seems like the prices are just getting higher and higher.

Perfect after-work place – There are other bars right next to it like Schroeder's but Royal Exchange is a bit more casual, better lighting, better to watch sports, and has the more traditional pub food fare. The crowd seems to be a bit younger and the atmostphere is better to meet people.

An old-school Financial District bar and grill with strong drinks, gigantic burgers and fine brews. – The Scene
Two island bars run the length of this high-ceilinged space, separated by a narrow walkway. After-work dates sit at stools lining either bars and larger parties take refuge at bordering tables and wooden booths. The weathered-wood floors and old-time art--black-and-white photos, colorful paintings of yesteryear's sport heroes--give the place a vintage vibe. TVs flashing ESPN keep things current.

The Draw
Royal Exchange sits on prime real estate. It's a popular lunch spot, as well as post-work drink destination for predominately 30-something white-collar-types. A long line of taps highlight more than 30 draft beers, including microbrew specialties like Drop Top ale. Tickertape-shaped menus hang from corners of the island bars and are divided into stockbroker-themed sections (Blue Chip Burgers, Hot Prospects, Greenbacks). The mammoth Royal Mushroom Burger is served on a soft French roll and presents a savory challenge to finish in one sitting.

Good for NCAA basketball tourny – slow service, above average food, and crowded. but probably the best place in the financial district to watch the NCAA basketball tournament during lunch breaks in march.

Great for food/beers – The Royal Exchange is a really good spot for beers and pub food after work. The burgers and chicken sandwich are great.
