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

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.
