This is just a very average restaurant, nothing special. Inexpensive, but not much to recommend. The staff was very pleasant but inexperienced. The food is ok but fish was served alone on a plate -- no garnish or sides or anything.

Not great not terrible. My husband had salmon that he thought was pretty good but my chicken was kind of dry and tough. The place was not too clean. It was the end of the day and maybe they hadn't caught up from a busy dinner rush but still. . . It's a basic family type restaurant. I wouldn't go... More

Had breakfast here before heading back to Missouri. Was not all that impressed. Was givin a cracked coffee cup, there was not much on the menu to choose from for those who only eat certain foods. I ordered fruit took one bit n spit it into a napkin... Enough said.. Chances are I won't eat here again..

I met a friend for lunch at Richards and discovered what I anticipated. The menu was low cost, servings were small and it was a friendly neighborhood establishment. My friend had a BLT with less than three slices of bacon. My covered chicken must have been dieting and weighed three oz. or less. It was to have had Swiss cheese... More

The staff was horrible. Not one time did anyone in the restaurant smile or even try to make eye contact! The place was not busy by any means, the salad bar was pitiful! My five year old asked where the salad was at. The eggs were frozen when they did finally bring food out to the salad bar. And when... More

Standard Richards Restaurant. Clean and food is wholesome but not really attractively presented. Service was a little slow but in fairness it was a busy lunchtime. Food quality was adequate, presentation could use some improvement but again. It's a fast food type menu and is nutritious if not pretty. Overall a fairly priced restaurant offering fair price and service.

Very nice home town restaurant with good value. Great fried chicken! Quite a variety of menu choices and a nice salad bar. Wait staff was attentive. Only negative is that some of the decor is worn and a few chairs up front had torn coverings.
