When I worked in Ft Wayne I use to eat breakfast here a lot. I just had breakfast there last week, 6 Sept 2016, and it is still just as good as ever. The service is good and friendly and the food is excellent. This restaurant is great for all three meals.

Been frequenting the Richards chain for many years, some are better than others. Went for a girls lunch recently and was pleased with the service and food. The blt and grilled chicken salad was a hit with all 3 of us, and the price is right, I think $5.99.

It didn't look like much when we walked in, but it was late - 30 minutes until closing. The food surprised us. It was all home made and they served fresh local vegetables. Hubby fell in love with the rhubarb pie (yep, made on site by the lady who was the cashier that night!). We noticed lots of cars in... More

Wanted to try something different and glad we chose Richards! The menu isn't expansive by any means but I got the Ham and cheese skillet and it was amazing. It was around 6 bucks and was too much food to finish it all. Delicious!! They serve breakfast all day and have a lunch and dinner menu. 1 Free toy for... More

Our family had a lovely breakfast at this non-chain restaurant. There was plenty of seating for mid-morning breakfast. Our kids had yummy pancakes and we had great egg skillet dishes.

Sure the place is in need of a spruce up but you can't deny that the food is good and at a food price. We use to go for breakfast EVERY Sunday morning. We don't go nearly as often due to the fact that they got rid of the classic round waffle, like Waffle House and opted for a Belgium... More

We decided to try Richard's for breakfast as it convenient for both couples. The atmosphere is very good and the place is very clean. The service was very good. However, this is where it stops. The scrambled eggs ordered were very rubbery, the toast was barely toasted, and the American Fries were not cooked enough and were somewhat hard. Suggest... More

Food is fine, prices are fine, but it's not much to look at inside. They are literally just down the road from bigger chain restaurants and could do better.
