We like The ORI a lot- have gone many times- especially for special occasions and holidays. Many items on the menu- food is excellent - not one of the best meals I've ever had, but it is a good experience. This time my veal piccata sauce was more like gravy tho (I always get this there )- good- but not... More

Excellent food all the time. The salad dressings are amazing, the bread is wonderful and deserts really good. The only issue I have with this restaurant is when you order food to go. They charge you extra for every breadstick.....extra salad dressing, even butter pats. Feels like buying a car instead of a takeout dinner. Seems petty.

Our food was excellent. We made reservations since it was a holiday weekend. We were promptly seated and drinks served. Our server after taking our order seemed no where to be found. We were given excellent service by a young man with refills. After eating however, it took 35 mom to find our waitress to get our bill. Then it... More

You could be forgiven if you walked into the Richmond Inn and thought that it looked like a place that your parents took you in your Sunday best in the 1950s. Though the menu is up-to-date, the entrees still come with choice of soup, fruit cup, or salad, vegetable, and potato (alas dessert is now extra). The arrangement and décor... More

We love to go to this place. You need reservations for weekends and holidays. They have a wonderful selection of steaks, seafood, lamb and other dishes that no one else in the area serves. We love the appetizers. Their creme brulee is to die for! Very reasonable prices for the quality! You will never be disappointed!

I celebrated my birthday at Olde Richmond Inn with my family and really enjoyed it. It's become a sort of tradition because the food is great and the atmosphere makes the meals more special than a regular restaurant experience. I don't think their food or service is spectacular, but it is more than good and I really enjoy it when... More

I went hoping to enjoy what I had heard was the best prime rib in the area. It looked more like a ribeye and was anything but tender. The vegetables were good and the waitress was extremely attentive. She offered to send my entree back but I declined ( I always do as I have heard to many horror stories... More

We've never had a bad experience at the Old Richmond Inn. The Bar BQ ribs are the best Ive ever eaten. The service is outstanding. The joint is cool. Try to sit in one of the back rooms. Prices are really good. Which begs the question. Why would anyone settle for chain restaurant food when you could have food like... More
