An Honest Value

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.

My in-laws live in Brunswick and this has long been their favorite place. The service is warm and family run. German food is mostly a cuisine I tolerate, but don't really crave it or have a special desire for it. That being said, I believe you should order according to a restaurant specislty. So I've always ordered the wienerschnitzel in... More

Before attending a production of the Maine State Music Theatre last week, we had dinner at Richard’s Restaurant, a very comfortable and friendly establishment, which specializes in German cuisine along with a small American menu. What a treat as we have no German restaurants where we live. Although not planned, all three of us had the Sauerbraten with Rotkohl and... More

The best little place for German food in the US. We had Weinbergschnecken for starters, My wife had Holsteinschnitzel and I had Kalbsgeschnetzeltes. The food is very German and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, the waitress even spoke German. I was very pleased with our visit. Richard's gefällt mir !

We enjoy eating at Richards, one of our favorites. Prices are reasonable. The service is the best of any restaurant in Brunswick. The menu has interesting German and American dishes. For lunch our favorite is Reuben sandwiches. Jagerschnitzel for dinner. The atmosphere is conductive for conversation. Tables are well set and there is a German atmosphere including an impressive display... More

I come here regularly for the baked stuffed haddock, salad bar and beer. The service is very good and the food is delicious. The other night I had the haddock chowder along with the pretzels and spicy mustard dip and was perfect for a light meal. Prices are middle of the road if having a dinner but definitely worth it...

Consistently great food and I love the soft pretzel (with their house spicy mustard) and puff roll that accompany each meal. There are typically 7 German beers on tap, plus a bunch available in bottles. Staff are friendly and attentive and surrounding you you'll find lots of interesting German trinkets, clocks, steins, etc. The dining room is fairly fancy, and... More

Yes. The apple strudel was perfection, but the dinners we had were delicious - and those fresh, hot (potato?) rolls? - as delicate as popovers - could we help it that they floated from the baskets right into our mouths? The ambience is lovely. Lots of dark wood, but not a sterile, dismal, atmosphere, as one so often finds. No... More
