The meal was a little pricey but well worth it. The prime rib was great. This is an upscale restaurant with linen tablecloths.

This is an upper end restaurant in Gainesville, GA. They serve well cooked entrees such as Steak and Seafood as well as delicious sides. The restaurant itself is very uppity looking especially on the inside. Tables have linen settings and seating is very comfortable and well placed. Food is excellent and service is professional. This is a very nice place... More

Poor Richards is and has been a great place to celebrate a special event or a place to grab a drink. Upstairs is more upscale fro dinner . "The basement" is also great to grab a quick dinner or drink. Service and quality have always been top notch here and the owner is hands on to make sure these things... More

large menu is somewhat pricey but once you finish you have to agree the meal was worth every cent. fish is fresh, delicately seasoned to allow some salt water to still get through, burgers are enormous, and constructed of prime beef i am sure. salad is fresh chilled and loaded with bacon!!! steaks dominate a large varied menu with sandwiches,...

Recently we ate here again for our anniversary after many years had elapsed. It is rare that a locally owned restaurant is still in business after 30 years. Great people. Good food for special occasions (upstairs) or everyday (downstairs). From steak and seafood to sandwiches and drinks, this is the place. Hoping it stays around for many more years.

I have been wanting to try it and went on a Wed night about 8 and there was only about 10 cars in the parking lot so I was a little concerned. Only saw one seated table upstairs so went to the bar as the same menu is served there. As others have mentioned it is at the high end... More

This is an upper scale restaurant in Gainesville. Kinda pricey. Good was good. Service was slow. Happy hour drinks 20% off until 6:30. Good for a change up from all the chain restaurants.

Couples atmosphere, service was excellent, food was to die for. I had the mahi blackened and it was pretty good. My wife had the filet and after trying her fish, the filet was probably the best I've ever had, definitely better than some of the major expensive steak house restaurants I've been to. A full course meal is a little... More

First time to visit Poor Richard's, even though this place has been around for a long time. Prices were a bit higher, and that does not guarantee a better meal...but our meal was top-notch. Wonderful fresh-baked breads started us off, then the warm bacon salad was amazing. But the steak...wow...an excellent marinade, perfect cooking of a really good cut of... More
