I was visiting a friend in Richmond and she brought me here for a southern brunch. We waited about an hour for a table (there were three of us) but it was a Sunday so a wait was expected. We had bloody marys while we waited and that helped to pass the time. Once seated, we were a little overwhelmed... More

I had never been at Millie's before yesterday. i have to say it became immediately one of my RVA favorites. The staff is super nice and efficient, the place is small, but cute and with character. Even if it was brunch time, I only ordered a BLT sandwich and a coffee and they were both delicious. I am still actually... More

It's such a small place plus the food and staff make it grand! Awesome, eclectic food and a chill environment. Nothing better!

This cozy little restaurant has fabulous fish. Atmosphere is welcoming and friendly, you can watch the chef cook as you enter, and with this second visit I am a real fan.

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
