Of course you have to wait to eat here, but it is so worth it, especially as the manager whips you up a horseradishy Bloody Mary. We went for Saturday brunch and I had the crab and eggs enchiladas. Wow, they were just the right amount of spice and the texture was perfect. My husband had devil's mess, which was... More

My husband had been to Millie's on a previous trip to Richmond and loved it, so needless to say he was very anxious for me to try it. From the moment we walked through the door I knew it was going to be fabulous. Aside from the small wait(30 mins) you will get no complaints from me. The food was... More

love the Brunch and the bloody marys. Very small Establishment and there is always a wait, but worth every minute of the wait.

We recently happened into Millie's by accident and I was so glad we did. The food was amazing. There are no paper menus handed out. Rather there is a chalk board menu with the dailies and a paper menu at the table with the specials. The cooks open cook your food and do a tremendous job. The specials looked insane... More

Okay...this is an above average place...more like something I would find on Drive-in, Diners and Dives. Its somewhere in this is how I describe it. Its not quaint by no means. Busy as he k. We went on a Sunday for brunch. Nothing spectacular to mention, but it was decent fare... Bit pricey for a fancy skillet meal, they call... More

We finally made it into Millie's! Since we were doing an afternoon show at the Altria, we decided to dine in the city. We have never made it into Millie's, because the Wait without reservations can be over 30 minutes. It opens at 5:30pm Saturday and fills up fast. The menu changes daily, but TWO items are standard - Caesar... More
