We love Millie's Sunday Brunch. Well worth the wait......and there almost always is one.....but just tide yourself over with a YUMMY Bloody Mary! So many great choices it's hard to say what my favorite item is, but I can say without a doubt I HAVE NEVER HAD A BAD MEAL HERE!!!!

While walking along the canal in downtown Richmond, VA, recently, my wife & I met a local couple who recommended Millie's for a great dinner, and how right they were! We called to reserve a table, and I'm glad we did; we would not have been able to eat there otherwise! The restaurant is small and not fancy-looking, but the... More

Great! Wonderfully different menu! Great wait staff. Good spot for a big table of friends to hang out and not feel rushed!

Wasn't really sure what to expect because it looks like your average diner however the food is more fine modern dining. Service was great and the food was very nice (we had the steak). Would recommend if you're staying in Charlotte.

We've lived in Richmond for almost 20 years and Millies just seems to be the one place in town we just never got around to going for dinner. We won't wait very long for the return trip. The spicy Thai shrip was as advertised and more. The service was excellent and they were very accomodating with special dietary restrictions. The... More

While my partner and I have never received a bad dish at Millie's, it is incredibly homophobic. Several male staff members relentlessly hit on my partner, who is more effeminate, and do not serve me any food or drink unless I forcefully ask. In addition, the times we have dined here our check is always delivered to us without us... More

We went to this place based on a friend's recommendation. Thankfully we arrived a bit before lunch on a weekday as I'm sure there is a very long wait for brunch on the weekends. The food, service, atmosphere and bloody marys were all outstanding. Not to be missed on a visit to Richmond!

Been to Millie's on multiple occasions and the food, service and atmosphere are fantastic. A must eat when visiting Richmond.

Crowded and there's usually a wait. The food is pretty good and some of their Cajun specials this past summer were delicious. Not a place to go if you're looking for a place to have brunch and sit and talk for a while.
