They have a nice selection on the menu. I tried the Lulu Burger and was satisfied. Prime rib is there specialty and my friend ordered that dish, VERY satisfied. I look forward to trying the dinner specials they have each day of the week. Yes the place is located in an area that is a bit concerning, but they have... More

Arrived with a party of 8 with previous reservations and were quickly seated. The waitress was pleasant and our orders were quickly taken. Then the slowdown commenced. It was a Monday night with very few customers and everything slowed down after our order was taken. The person serving the salads appeared to not want to be there. The entrees finally... More

Don't let the location and exterior deter you. The menu is perfect.....nice variety and great prices. The staff is friendly and prompt. The bar is top notch and the drinks are spot on. Then there's the food..........if the rest of Richard's deserves a 5 star review, the food deserves a 6+!!!! Seriously, do yourself a favor and check this place... More

Well, I was really hoping for something new and different but it wasn't any of that. I believe they were under stuffed for a Friday night with a big party, but I still wanted to believe maybe they do can handle, but not so much after all, the starting of the night was good, the 45 minutes waiting was actually...

If we, my husband and I, could give this a rating of six stars we would! This was our first visit to Richard's to celebrate my birthday. After reading the reviews I was flummoxed as to whether this would be a dark dive, living on what the restaurant used to be, or an old-fashioned, dignified restaurant serving amazing quantities and...

I have eaten here numerous times and this is the first time I was disappointed. The bar tender recommended the baked oysters. After a couple of drinks we ordered the oysters and they had run out. It was 6:00 pm. We then ordered dinner and the disappointment continued. I had the NY steak medium rare and it was medium well.... More

Okay so bought a groupon and could not use it with the combo they offer, so we had to order a dinner each to make it work, which defeated the purpose of the groupon. We left feeling we over paid for our meal ( and that was using the groupon!!) . The steak for starters was over cooked, I ordered... More

Richard sold the place several years ago and the new owner ran it into the ground. Richard took the place back and reopened it in January. Same people, same menu, same service.
