NICE Business Lunch!

I haven't been back here for awhile and I have to write about a recent Business Lunch that I had because I NEVER went for lunch before. The lunch menu is way reduced from the dinner menu and I was DISAPPOINTED that MANY of the favorites {steaks, deep fried lobster tail, filet, etc.} weren't... read more

It was pretty good, The bar is old and need revamping but in its antiquity the whole place is nice, the scene is upper crust rustic, salad bar looked yummy also though I didn't have it. I did however have there cheese cake... More

I love Poor Richard's. They have the best soup/salad bar in town. Getting in and out for lunch is a breeze. If you're looking for a nice dinner, this is the place to go. We have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is nice and the staff is very friendly.

In town for a business conference, decided to try somewhere new. Appetizers and steaks were great all the way around, wine and beer selection were smaller but did the job, sides were great, prices were fair. Would definitely eat here again next time we're in Cheyenne

One of a handful of locally owned restaurants in Cheyenne. Not part of a national chain. Has been owned and operated at its current location for at least 40 years. Great food, atmosphere and staff. Would highly recommend.

Their menu has something for everyone. I dined with a vegan and she thoroughly enjoyed the salad bar. I ordered lemon chicken and it was excellent. Fresh baked bread was brought to the table and the service was excellent. Poor Richard's consistently serves great food.

At this very important dinner in a reserved room, service was so slow that my family ran out of conversation and just sat there tiredly hoping for something to eat. Then the food arrived and I found my chicken stuffed with figs and Gorgonzola dry, overcooked and tasteless. Other family members had similar experiences, including the anniversary couple celebrating 69... More
