I had heard about Croaker's before, so when I was actually in Richmond, I had to try it out. The food was delicious, it was definitely what I expected and more! The portions were very well sized, we all ended up taking some food home. Its rare to find good quality soul food. There was a wait, probably about a... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant on a Saturday afternoon but the line was so long (45 minute wait, which isn't bad but the neighborhood was sketchy and we were outside) that we left and returned on Sunday morning (August 10). We arrived around 11:45am (open at 12pm) and there was a significant line. They opened the doors... More

This was an exciting dining experience for our family. There was a long wait because we visited on Mother's Day, but we were so busy catching up, that we barely noticed the time. There was a fried lobster special that was so delicious that my mouth still waters when I think about it. However, we sampled all the dishes that... More

I went to this restaurant with a coworker for lunch and enjoyed it thoroughly. The service was great. The food hot and tasty. The portions are HUGE! I took home more than 1/2 of the order for another tasty meal. I ordered a shrimp lunch with 2 sides. The reason I struggled with giving an excellent rating is that the... More

Definite must visit while in Richmond, VA.! Croakers has the best service and absolutely wonderful local food! I ordered the blackened chicken plate. First of all, the portions are large enough to share (or plan to take home and finish later). The cabbage, cheese grits and cornbread were just as amazing as the chicken itself. My kids ordered the Nachos.... More

I found this place on tripadvisor. We were staying in Richmond on our way to DC and wanted something that wasn't a "chain" restaurant. We went on a Friday night. It was PACKED!!! The waiting area was so small. Either you were standing too close to another person waiting or you're kind of invading the space of someone who is... More

I was raised on fresh seafood so am very picky when it comes to seafood restaurants. This place is awesome. The food was fantastic and plentiful. The service was wonderful. Our server Trey was personable, attentive and made us feel very welcome. This restaurant is well worth traveling to and I'm sure we will be back again!

What can be done for this establishment to have a place where infants/babies can have their diapers changed? My baby was in there today and there is no changing table in this facility or a counter near the sink even. A chair was requested so my baby could be changed in lap while sitting down. The resolution given from the... More

Small -chairs un-comfortable. Crowded-Loud-Busy-Whole in the wall place. But the food you will remember. Hugh portions, corn bread and left overs will happen. Enjoy. P.S. They have carry out. Might be worth it..
