We were really looking fwd to our first visit to PR's but I doubt if there will be a 2nd time. I had the 80z prime rib and it was anything but "Prime". Tough and taste less is the best desc. and not worth the $30 I paid. My wife and the crab cake and she said it was filled... More

A large group of us go here each year during the holidays. We have been doing this for years. The food, service and atmosphere is always excellent. I highly recommend, just wish I didn't live so far away!

However the food was average. Shrimp and grits was bland tasting and should have been warmer. There were four of us and all agreed that the food wasn't bad but wasn't remarkable either.

Service is always excellent, food very good.The House salad w/ hot bacon dressing is excellent. Good place to gathers w/ friends & family. Know for their prime rib. I got the chicken nachos(1/2 order) one of the few places you can get chicken instead of beef.it did have to many olives on it,but I just took part of them off.

Richard has maintained an excellent high quality menu for many years. His wait staff is always friendly and efficient. Cocktails served are always just the way you want them. After travelling in business for fifty years I would compare Poor Richards to some of the finest restaurants across the entire country and consider this establishment as one of the finest.

It's an oldie but a goodie. Be sure and get a salad with the hot bacon dressing and the steak soup! Service is always excellent and the wait is usually very reasonable. I only wish they were open for lunch.

Wide variety of excellent dishes in one of Gainesville's mainstay restaurants...Unique chicken livers are regulars on the menu. Delicious "homemade" dressings. Separate bar area has "Cheers" type atmosphere.....You'll see/meet numerous locals.....Prices quite reasonable for considering food quality.

I've been eating here for 32 years! Love the Hot Bacon Dressing! Of course Prime Rib is my favorite! Honestly I've never eaten anything at Poor Richards that was not good! Great place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, I've even been to a rehearsal dinner here!
