It's now closed.

Karl's is right by my house. They have sadly now closed their doors. They were a lovely restaurant. Karl was "famous" for his German cuisine, but they just couldn't sustain at their new location and closed their doors.

The Riverbend location was torn down and he moved to a strip center on Hwy 359. But sadly, that location only lasted 1 yr. As of April 30, 2015 he no longer has a restaurant in Richmond.

My wife and I met a few Canadian friends this past Sunday at Karl's for brunch. Overall, the staff were very attentive and helpful. The food was very good - tasty, well presented, plentiful and varied. While we didn't partake in the champagne brunch, it was tempting. I especially liked the fresh fruit for desert. However, a good selection of... More

My husband and I visited Karl's Restaurant and Bar, the new name of the re-opened restaurant, for a Valentine's Day lunch. It's now located in a strip retail building, so the ambiance is not quite the same as the previous restaurant. However, it was bright and comfortable with forest scene murals. Service was attentive and accommodating. Although wienerschnitzel is not... More

We finally tried this place last night for dinner and so glad that we did! The Atkins menu was a real treat for me and my wife. The filet mignon with goat cheese was awesome. We also enjoyed the trout almondine, pan seared scallops and my daughter, who is not a low carber, loved her fettuccine alfredo. Topped off the... More

Karl's is a nice, relaxing place to eat. We could actually have a conversation! which is a rarity these days without paying mucho dinero. They serve game to eat. I had the trout almondine which was good but not the best I have eaten but is a good price. My husband had the Chicken Bob which he enjoyed. They have... More

Ordered chicken fried chicken from the neighborhood menu, and it was terrible. Swimming in gravy, and too much breading with little chicken. The salad was iceberg lettuce. The baked potato was good and so were the rolls, but we will never go back. I also found the waitress very curt

Karl recently reopened near my house in River Edge, Richmond. This is a fairly spacious restaurant with a pleasant quiet atmosphere, not too crowded, filled with soft music. The staff is very courtuous, friendly and professional. The menu is a mixed of American and European taste (Switzerland). The lunch is served and presented nicely like a "restaurant", not fastfood way.... More
