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

We were spending the night in Brunswick on our way home from vacation and went to Richard's on the recommendation of the manager of the motel where we were staying. The Jagerschnitzel was excellent -- one of the best I have ever had. Service was good, and our waitress was friendly. I wish Richard's was in my home town!

I don't happen to like German food, but go there with friends who do. There's a section of the menu with heart-healthy items and there's plenty to choose from -- very tasty. Service is warm and friendly in this family-run restaurant.

The two times we have been to Richard's we have come away very pleased. The Jagerschnitzel and the other schnitzels are great. To be able to find a good veal meal is a pleasure. The service is very friendly but efficient, the atmosphere was cozy but busy. There were tables with multi generations, retirees, and young adults. It is not... More

Richards German offerings are so good that they remind me of the old Luchows on E. 14th. Street in NYC that closed back in 1986, I think. For sure, Luchows was grander, more elegant, and had an unbeatable German wine list, but Richard's food and flavorings are about as good particularly with regard to Jagerschnitzel which is a favorite of...

Richard's is always a great place to eat!! I've been dining at Richard's for about 12 years. I've eaten in both the dining room, and the bar area. Richard has an excellent selection of beers (some are on tap, at the perfect beer temp. 45ish). I've eaten in the bar area more often. Richard's makes their own strudel, from scratch,... More

After traveling across the USA it was a treat to find Richard's German Restaurant in Brunswick, Maine. The schnitzel was delicious and so was the Bitburger beer!! The atmosphere is cozy and the service is friendly.

Having lived in Deutschland for nearly 2 years and looked forward to a short walk to the Alt stadt for a weekend meal, it's always a pleasure to recreate these meals when in Brunswick, Maine, at Richards. The kitchen prepares authentic German fare and presents these dishes in a very similar, unpretentious plating as found in the Fatherland. Their Schweineschnitzel... More

I'm a first generation American of German parents. Richard's is a German restaurant that creates authentic, delicious German food. Whenever we pass Brunswick, we stay overnight just to be able to eat here and not worry about driving after a beer or two. I can never seem to decide what to order, so I always get the German Sampler with... More
