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...

Sometimes a good server makes the meal even if the food is eh, but this time, our server Paula was great, and the food was just as great!

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

We stopped in for dinner tonight with some family. I'm the only one in the party that was not familiar with German food. I ordered the "Schellfisch “Müllerin Art” – pan-fried haddock. It was tasty, but for me it was a bit bland. My hubby had the German Sampler - he raved about it. They also LOVED the beer. The... More

I met an old friend in Brunswick this evening, he suggested Richard's for good food; I'm glad he did. On a Monday evening, we were the only customers in the room, so service was prompt and quick. He ordered a Pilsner and I ordered a Gruner Veltliner (white wine); they arrived with a couple of freshly baked rolls and two... More
