We ate here several times over the summer while settling our daughter in Richmond. Each time the servers were pleasant and efficient and the food was very good. Huge portions, too!

Nothing fancy, but the food is very good and well served. You drink out of ice tea pitchers which was a little different. Rally enjoyed my meal. Will return.

I won't try and argue that some of this establishment's entrees aren't esculent. Although none are noteworthy. For the right reasons, anyway. But should you choose to start your meal with their "famous" beer battered onion rings (as we did), consider yourself forewarned that your already mediocre meal will be marred. "Why" you ask? Because they are the greasiest things... More

We stopped here on our way up 95, simply because of it's appearance on DDD. We were a little early, at 11am, and seated right away. Seating at that point was seat yourself, but we were immediately greeted and waited on by a great server. The food came out quick and was delicious. Certainly a bar food type of place,... More

This diner is an eclectic mix of the old (wooden booths with coat hooks) and the new, funky wall art. The clientele appeared quite varied - maturer locals in addition to young adults. We were the only family but did not feel out of place. There is a varied menu and it is very reasonably priced. The food was well... More

Have eaten here twice and always make a point to stop in when I am in Richmond. Food is cheap but amazing. The cheese fries are ridiculously good! The atmosphere is fun and the service is usually excellent. Don't forget to get a milkshake! It's one of the few places that doesn't just add chocolate syrup to vanilla ice cream... More

While visiting my son in VCU, we had a dinner with a large group of friends. Service was quick, courteous and efficient. Good choices of local breweries beers and vines, milk shakes are to die for! Big dinner for nine cost only $135! Highly recommend!
