I have been eating at Richards regularly ever since he opened on Maine St in Brunswick. My husband always orders the Wiener schnitzel which is wonderful. I tend to try something different each time. Their Strudels are mouth watering. If you are looking for a really good meal in Brunswick, Maine, you cannot go wrong at Richard's Restaurant.

I'm not familiar with German food, but my friends are. They think the food there is good, but not traditional German food.

Richard's is really an excellent restaurant, serving German food as good as you find in the old country, We have been unable to find really good, reasonable restaurants in town, so we have become regulars at Richard's. Oh, and their selection of beers is outstanding, too !

Absolutely will not miss a visit to Richard's when I am in Brunswick. The owner is German-American and knows his German cooking. I have the Jagerschnitzedl, and my family chooses all over the menu. I'm told the beers are good too. I will go to Brunswick just to go to Richard's. Hope he never retires.

Food was typical German food with a good beer selection but the service was painfully slow. We waited over 15 minutes just to get someone to give us our check and with no apology for the wait and then paid them right away so we would not have to wait again for someone to come and take our money.

Three of us enjoyed a lovely meal, moderately priced. If you don't prefer German food, there are other things to choose. I had Haddock that was delicious. The staff were very nice & efficient. Homey atmosphere, not fancy. Surprisingly small selection of beer choices, but an adequate variety to please any taste.

We were looking to take our brother out to dinner someplace nice but not too fancy. He picked Richard's and we were pleased with his choice. We had a variety of meals--pork, fish, and bratwurst and everyone was happy with their meal. They offer a variety of sides with ample portions to compliment your meal. We also ordered a beer...

We visited without a reservation but were seated quickly. The menu is pretty extensive, with daily specials. The food and service were good and the waitress gave us halved chocolate covered strawberries when she brought our check. Nice touch. Friendly people here.

I had the Jagerschnitzel and draft Warsteiner Dunkel... both were excellent. I like that they have an option for a Petite Portion at a slightly reduced price. Too many restaurants force over-sized portions on their customers. Service was very friendly and efficient. We will visit again given the opportunity.
