Noisy, fun and good eats

Nothing fancy here. Busy at lunch and two cooks upfront doing specials each day. They support the behind the scene kitchen. Quite crowded on our midweek luncheon visit....but well worth the wait. Innovative entrees and desserts, popular enough, our first choice was sold out at 1:30.

This restaurant was crazy busy. We arrived at 11am and waited almost 1 hour to sit down. They originally told us 30 min. The food however was really good. I had the flank steak with eggs, which I enjoyed. My wife had the ham and eggs. The ham was very salty and she wasn't able to eat it. Only restaurant... More

My second visit and some relief they actually take reservations now! Interesting increase in restaurants in Richmond over the last two years has caused some dilution in restaurant competition and even on Saturday evening there are empty tables! Always a treat to enter the restaurant an immediately on your right is the smallest kitchen in the chef kingdom but yet... More

Millie's is the best spot for brunch. Very unique and amazing food! You can have beverages on the patio while you wait for a table, but be careful, they add up quickly at $8 a piece. Also, during your wait be sure to check out the menu which is on a chalkboard, before you sit down. There aren't any actual... More

We were visiting and some friends took us there for dinner. It has a cool environment, with a dinner setting, but fancier menu. It's actually a one page menu with varying options. We had the most traditional dish (Spicy shrimp) and it was very good, very large (you could share with an appetizer) and spicy (in a good level for... More

If only in Richmond for one weekend you must try this place for brunch on Sunday! They have the most interesting dishes! Best Bloody Mary's around and the service is great! You might have to wait for a little bit because they are really busy on Sundays but it is worth the wait!!

This is the first time we have been to this place. If you like the ole mom and pa type of place i.e. 50',60's diner atmosphere, this is the place. You will not get a traditional American eggs and bacon. Completely different. If your going for the brunch i.e. Sat, Sun you want to get there for the first seating... More

I had a chickpea cake served on a roll with olive tapenade. Hubby had a corned beef sandwich with cabbage, cheese & mayo. Cute specialty restaurant. Limited seating & chilly as it was 8 degrees out but the heat wasn't cranked up. I ate with my coat on.

It is quaint & cute inside. We were first in the door for breakfast & good thing we were bc the people came in really fast after us. I was surprised that I had never heard how good the food was before going in, but it was fantastic.The service was great, no long wait! Will go back again! My only... More
