This restaurant was recommended to us by local friends. We could instantly see why it has such a loyal local following. The steaks and trout were cooked perfectly. The bar man is a real pro. We had a too-new waiter, who meant well, but who did not know the menu, etc. We spoke one quiet word to the bar tender... More

Very comfortable & good food and service. I wanted something different, something off the beaten path. They delivered.

This is a place we have been for lunch maybe three times. I cannot really talk about dinner but the lunch first time was great bringing us back again and it was good now it is fair. The menu is narrow , the service although attentive was disorganized , the food was only average to mediocre. Hopefully this was an... More

We were looking for a decent place to eat after visiting Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo and were pleasantly surprised to find Poor Richard's. Not many restaurants can prepare steak AND lamb really well, but this elegant and reasonably priced restaurant does that and so much more. Had to go back and try their brisket, slaw and bbq brown lentils. So... More

This is a favorite spot for Friday night drinks and dinner. It did not disappoint!! My husband had the blackened ribeye salad and I had the chicken Dijon... Both were delicious and I would recommend. Our waiter was great he never missed a beat. kept the drinks coming and the food flowing it was a delightful evening!

I'm spending the week in Cheyenne and Casper on business, and my colleagues' and my last two dinners have been at Poor Richard's. That should tell you something right off the bat: I won't go back to a place that's less than excellent. Life is too short. This is definitely a steakhouse, although Tuesday night one of my colleagues had... More

Steaks were good quality and service was excellent. Total cost incl tip approx $140 for 2 8 oz filets , 1ribeye ,3 salads and 3 glasses of wine -- not a big city mortons, Capitol grill ,... But very nice local steakhouse. Friendly and attentive service throughout.

The price was low enough, the salad bar was so-so, the wine list was pretty unimpressive, her steak salad was good, my NY strip was badly trimmed and difficult to hack thru with a dull steak knife. The men's room is bizarre, and the place seems like it caters to senior citizens. While some really good dining experiences can last... More

I ordered the prime rib and it was very tender and very tasty. (I'm picky too) Nice atmosphere. It's a little out dated but it's clean and good food. Would go again for sure.

My husband and I travel to Cheyenne twice a month on business. We went to Poor Richards for the first time in early June. We had a wonderful experience - so much better that we were expecting. We ate in the bar/lounge area instead of the main dining room because it was cozy, dark and private. If you like bright... More
