Went there for lunch with my parents. Décor is traditional dark wood. There were a few Oktoberfest specials on the menu but we stayed with the regular menu. Service was a bit slow but friendly. Food was good but on the bland side, especially the potato salad. I'd go again but avoid the usually busy times and look for something... More

We just got back from dinner at Richard's. We liked it. We were greeted and seated promptly. Our waiter was very nice, patient, and answered all our questions. My wife had the crab crepe, and really enjoyed it. Very tasty with lots of crab. I had the farmer's soup which was tasty, but perhaps a bit bland. The Sauerbraten made... More

The curry wurst sausage dinner was excellent. The wiener schnitzel wasn't all that tasty. Next time I'll go with a more exotic schnitzel in a sauce.

Have ever gone to a restayrant and feel like you're bothering the staff? Sure, they were busy, but quite discourteous.

When tired (believe it or not) of lobster, and bored with the several Asian options in Brunswick, we have eaten happily at Richard's, in each of our regular summer visits to this town. Atmosphere is very traditionally German (lots of wood, beer steins galore), and a very competent German menu. Sauerbraten and schnitzel are both fine, red cabbage is great,... More

Love this place, I usually get steak but this time I got one of the schnitzels. It was so good. The red cabbage is a must eat. I love this place. The crowd is older but the food is great.

I had been a couple if times to Richards years ago and each time was like a trip back to Germany where I lived for 9 years. I was so excited to be coming back but the food was extremely disappointing this time. The schnitzel was way too thin. Where was the meat??? The spatle was more like dry spaghetti... More

And always a treat! We always start with a delicious "made at table-side" Caesar salad (a lost art done right here. Hear hear!!!) followed by any number of excellent German (and American; although we always go German here) dishes. Always excellent and friendly service - even when the place is mobbed (just might have to be a little bit patient)... More

My husband and I really enjoy German cuisine and no one (on this side of the Atlantic) does it better than Richard's. They also offer delicious American style dishes. My favorite is stuffed haddock. Their salad bar is the best, especially when you top your salad with their homemade mustard based dressing. My husband really likes their Thursday special, rindsrouladen.... More
