Great hidden gem

This restaurant is a great place to go out to eat with friends. The food is always top notch and service very good also. The seating is neat it is rooms of an old house, so you might have a couple tables in one room then more in another, not just one big dinning hall.

Christmas time shopping with my daughter is always a special time. Enjoying lunch at the inn is always good and at the same time purchase gift cards for friends. These always seem to be a winner as a gift. A big plus is the cards are usable at there other location's as well. Staff is always very friendly and service... More

We were searching unsuccessfully for another restaurant in Richmond when we passed by this place and decided to try it for a recent lunch. Good decision. The extensive regular menu is supplemented by at least dozen daily specials and settling on our choices was a bit of a challenge. The black bean soup was hearty and delightfully flavored with a...

If you're ever in the historical downtown area of Richmond, you must stop by The Olde Richmond Inn and smale their offerings. The staff is great, but the food is even better. You can tell the chefs take their time to prepare each meal and you as the consumer reap all the benefits. I think you get great value for... More

I was really craving a nicer dining experience than the big box chain restaurants. The restaurant has an inviting exterior, plenty of parking, and is in an easy-to-get-to location so it seemed worth trying. I'm glad that I did. How refreshing to sit at a window table with fantastic (not frantic) service and with an actual linen tablecloth on the... More

Having grown up in Richmond, my wife and I went back to hike in Glen Miller Park and drove by the house where I spent my youth. The "go to" restaurant at the time was Elizabeth Parkers (no longer in business). We decided to have dinner at the Olde Richmond Inn and we were very delighted. The restaurant is in... More

I'm a local. When we want to celebrate something special we ALWAYS choose The Olde Richmond Inn. Service is wonderful, food is great. You will not be disappointed. If you have lots of young children, you will be happier and feel more comfortable eating somewhere else, not because they don't accommodate them well, but because the ORI is on the... More
