Great Food Great Service

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.

We went for an early Sunday brunch and the wait was about an hour. You can enjoy drinks or coffee while waiting and the people watching is great. It was a mix of college students, locals and tourists and the wait didn’t seem that long. The menu is on a blackboard and was hard to read but the waitress was... More

A great place for lunch. Especially loved their hash browns which are roasted and spiced with cayenne and cumin. No fried foods, just fresh and unique offerings. Cute bar and a few outside cafe tables.
