Experience was excellent in every way. The food was awesome (as always), as was the service (thank you, Rebecca). The ambience was comfortably interesting and therefore right down my alley. I have been eating at Millie's ever since it opened. It has always been great but in my view it's better than ever.

We visit Richmond regularly and always try a new and different venue for meals. We did not have a reservation, but were able to sit @ the bar, which was a great introduction to this wonderful establishment. Our dinner was AMAZING. I ordered the Pan seared Rockfish Torchon with celery root, guanciale, sage, sauteed dandelion greens & gooseberries. It was... More

A journey through the state on highway 95 and we decided to make a stop for a bit at Millie's. from a throwback atmosphere to a decent selection of offerings Millie's was average at best. The Bloody Mary was lackluster but the BLT was pretty decent. The outside dining patio was nothing special either and the bathrooms were subpar. Not... More

In Richmond, if I want to treat my friends, family, or the most snooty epicure to a great meal - I take them to Millie's Diner. I'm not sure why Millie's is referred to as a "diner" - the cuisine is far superior than any true diner I've visited. But, regardless of how you categorize the establishment - the food... More

We were the first people in at 5:30 for the evening shift, found the place to be fairly small but quite inviting, appreciate the fact that all the cooking happens in plain view and the cooks were having fun. The staff was good and reasonably personable, did spend more time assembling and joking with each other instead of paying attention... More

My husband used to love Millie's and every so often we decide to eat here to fulfill his need for nostalgia. I have to say it has been disappointing. The menu is just too confusing for the average eater. When you have to sit and google everything on the menu to figure out what it is, it just feels like... More

Food taste is the strength of this place. They know how to prepare foods. The staff is very friendly. They are a bit too loud during peak hours. Also, the bathrooms are dirty and well worn.

Had brunch with my girlfriends. We wanted to do brunch on a Sunday with mimosas and good food - so glad I check Trip Advisor for the rave reviews! We arrived to see the large group of people sitting outside on a gloomy day, so happy and enjoying themselves. We were inteigued. We were entertained the entire hour wait and... More

On several trips to Richmond Millie's is the go to place for Breakfast. The menu has several items called ZXXMess. Try one if you have a large appetite and really enjoy fun food. there may be some wait but it is worth the wait.

Millies is a small, cozy restaurant with eclectic furnishings. The food is as varied as the decorations. On our recent visit, our party sampled the calamari, Thai spicy shrimp, mussels and clams, duck, salmon , scallops and chicken. Everything was well prepared and tasty. The recommended Italian wines paired perfectly. Reservations are recommended since the restaurant fills quickly.
