Poor Richard's has been here forever. That is because it has a wide selection on the menu, well prepared food and an attentive wait staff. You just about can't go wrong. We shared a huge plate of chicken nachos and had the Boston clam chowder. Finished with chocolate cream pie. All were delicious.The salads with the hot bacon dressing are... More

Poor Richard's is a Gainesville tradition. The food is consistently good, the atmosphere is great if you like a vintage feel, and the service is stellar. The lower lounge bartender, John Paul, is one of Gainesville's best kept secrets. He is fast and courteous. The wine list is good and reasonably priced. I love the steak soup, house salad and...

My son wanted a steak and this was one of the higher rated restaurants in Gainesville. Truth in those ratings.

I wish I had... More

very good food and service. I highly recommend it. Especially the fried chicken livers and gravy. The furnishings are a little outdated but still a very enjoyable experience

My husband and I eat at Poor Richard's 1-2 times per month and it is by far, my favorite place to eat. The food is always fantastic as is the service. I have eaten the soups, salads, ribs, chicken dishes, and the sandwiches/burgers. The ribs are the best we have ever eaten...anywhere. I have never had a bad meal here,... More
