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.

Staying at the nearby Quality Inn, we found the menu for this restaurant in the hotel guide in our room. Close to hotel, moderate prices, and the hotels aren't going to steer you wrong and risk their own future business. Read the reviews here, and since we were getting carry out we didn't care about what people write about the... More

You know a place is great when a bunch of locals show up at each meal. A fairly large restaurant with a "Mom & Pop" feel to it. Food is similar to Bob Evans but this is not a national chain.

Food was only okay. Selection was only okay. Service was only okay. It was open. And I found it. I would neither go back on purpose or avoid it on purpose.
