This is very sad. He was a nice man who ran a decent business. I hope someone buys this place as gets it operational again. It is a very convenient location to the ATV trails. The local gas station also left, bu the bar down the street is opening gas pumps.

Love their friday fish fry. Plenty of food for the cost. Friendly and attentive staff. We order the cod and perch. Very flavorful and always came nice and hot. Home made potato chips if you want, two types of coleslaw, beans and soft bread. Mix drinks were perfect. Never have left disappointed or still hungry.

Stopped in there on our snowmobiles today for lunch. We sat at the bar, just ordered one soda. I got the chicken dumpling soup which the waitress said was one of their specialties, the french dip and my husband got a burger w/ fries. The soup was ok but very watery. It was the worst french dip I've had in... More

Thought that we would give the place a try, seeing as it was under new ownership. My wife ordered the chicken, which has always been a specialty here since it was first called "The Chicken Shack" many a decade ago, and today it still is good as ever. She was quite satisfied and happy with her meal. I ordered for... More

Richard's is known in the area for their marinated, broasted chicken. It is always tender, juicy, crispy and downright YUMM. Service is a bit slow at times, even when they are not busy, but the food is always very good. We live in the area, so have never stayed at the motel, but we frequent their restaurant. I have to...

As a conessiour of Supper Clubs throughout Wisconsin, I had high hopes for Richards Restaurant, after driving past it for years, but they found many ways to dissapoint. Richards is the only true restaurant on about a 30 mile strech of Highway 8 in Wisconsin. This might be why they set the bar so low. The bar selection is very... More

My wife and I took her mother 4-wheeling for the mother's day. Luckily, Rick had 2 rooms cancel last minute and we stayed for 3 nights. The Marinette County trails were awesome. We had exceptional service from Tori both Friday and Saturday night. The steaks on Friday were cooked the way we wanted them and the Prime Rib Special on... More

We were doing a road trip from Illinois, driving the Lake Michigan Circle Tour, (A Great Trip!). We strayed a little from the lake to check out Veteran’s Memorial County Park, McClintock Park (and rapids), and then drove over to Goodman County Park to see Strong Falls. All were great sites to stop and enjoy those areas. We stopped at... More

Went here for dinner one night while vacationing in the area. The chicken was very good as was the fish and wrap. If you're in Dunbar, it's worth a stop. Note: the dinner menu wasn't available during the week; though, they did let me order the chicken from the dinner menu. I forgot to ask, but I'm guessing the dinner... More

I've stayed there and fished in that area for close to 55 years and the Richards hotel has always been the best! Resonable prices, clean rooms and good food add to the area!
