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

Good place, especially downstairs to meet and greet folks. Not too big where you can hear each other talk. Happy hour is a nice way to end the day meeting place.

Poor Richards is a good restaurant when you want to go casual and get a decent meal. Their prime rib sandwich is very good and reasonably priced.

Poor Richards is a Gainesville mainstay. It has an intimate atmosphere and great food. My husband LOVES their Seafood Platter...he says it tastes as good as when we're vacationing on the Gulf. I always, always get their grilled Amberjack or Salmon. We love to take out of town guests to Poor Richards because it's fine dining, great food and service... More

We have been loyal customers for many years. My husband was taking me & my mother out to eat on the Friday before Valentines & I picked Poor Richard's. They were busy but not extremely busy. We ordered & waited 45 minutes & had not received our appetizer. My husband finally found our waitress & in about 5 minutes she... More

Poor Richard's is a must if you are looking for a high quality restaurant. They been a highly recognized establishment in Gainesville for over 30 years. Their House Fried Chicken Salad with hot bacon dressing is the BEST ever! The location of the restaurant is not the best in Gainesville but the food is definitely worth it!
