Delicious Lunch!

Millie's was a great spot for lunch and convenient to both Shockoe Bottom and Church Hill in Richmond, VA. Always heard good things about Millie's and we finally got to try it. We were seated right away and got one of the few booth's left as it was hopping for a Thursday lunch hour. The waitress... read more

This place was great! We got there early and was seated right away. Menu written on the wall. They do have a no changes or substitution policy. They know what they are doing with combinations and spices. Can't be mad about the no changes policy. Hash browns and toast come with every meal. Devil mess with Indian spices was unique... More

My sister and her husband live in Richmond. When I said my daughter and I were passing through she insisted on it being for brunch. She called it the "official meal of Richmond". I just call it delicious. The place is very small and pretty loud but the 40 minute wait was worth it. Huevos rancheros was done to perfection... More

We had a party of 12 and they were able to seat us all together. The food was amazing with wonderful flavors and creative ingredients. I would recommend Millie's to all who are in Richmond and looking for a great meal!

We were there for Father's Day and it was packed but they ask you if you would like a drink while you wait and there is plenty of space outside to do so. There are numerous unique dishes and we picked the shrimp and grits and the spiced corn beef. Both were excellent. Our waitress was very happy and outgoing.... More

The chef added duck to a pork and bacon meatloaf. Grilled it before serving. Crisp outside and moist inside. Outstanding. Served with mashed taters and asparagus. Garnished with a bright, spicy chimichurri. Definitely will return.

Service was fine with exception of recommended entree, appetizers were fine, and entree was doused in salt. Thai shrimp with salt as dominant taste is nothing like authentic Thai cuisine. Server promoted the dish, but it was difficult to eat. Omit the added sodium and the Thai shrimp might be scrumptious.

I had the lobster and eggs with the puff pastry. My husband had the Devil's Mess (hope I got that right.) We enjoyed the fresh preparation and the flavor was very good. Went for breakfast on a Sunday. The wait wasn't bad and the host was very attentive. Mention that it is your first time and they will be sure... More

This is a smaller local restaurant with an interesting menu. I personally prefer eating at local independent locations, and Millie's did not disappoint. The food was very good. They have a Thai shrimp which is excellent, although better for those who like the food a little spicy.

Fun, funky great food. Have the General Lee for breakfast you will not be disappointed. Can be a wait. But the give you a drink the minute you arrive so very civilized. Great attentive staff too.
