Fair menu- fair price

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... read 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.

The environment is great for a simple family meal or to experience that old fashioned hometown, uncomplicated lifestyle. So slow down and rest a while but don't worry about having to wait on service! These folks are friendly, attentive without pestering you. They waited on us but we didn't have to wait on them!

Myself, my husband and my mother in-law recently ate dinner at Richards and the food was really good... I got a chicken salad that was super good... very fresh vegetables and wonderful dressing made fresh there in the restaurant!

Richards has a good value on their product. The food quality is average. Coffee is on the weak side. Staff that I encountered was friendly and attentive.

My mother eats here everyday. My grandma once told me, if the food is good and well priced, that is where all the senior citizens will eat. She is right. The food is good and cheaply priced and all the old people of Whitley county either have lunch or breakfast here. The food is consistent and the waitresses greet you... More

I like to have a bowl of soup and the salad bar, makes a nice meal and very filling. The broasted chicken is also very good. And they have daily specials for lunch and dinner.
