Richards offers great breakfast at a reasonable price. Coffee is awesome, but I think the iced tea is the best. Family of 4 can eat breakfast for less than $25. Nice waitresses, family atmosphere.

Went with a group of 8 for early lunch. The restaurant is small but staff was happy to move two tables together to accommodate our party. The restaurant is clean but rather old and could use some updates but the staff was congenial and attentive to keeping beverages filled and helpful in answering questions about items on the menu.

Leaving the beach early in the morning after a great vacation, we were looking for a place to have breakfast after getting out of the bottle neck in Conway, SC. We wanted a local restaurant, not a fast food chain. Along the way we found nothing and left the 501 bypass to go into Marion--a small, very quiet Southern town.... More

Stopped here based upon other reviews. The food is reasonably priced. If you like basic diner food, fry-cooked, on white bread that sticks to the roof of your mouth, this place is for you. It was busy with locals, but I would personally look elsewhere next time through.

It is what it is, a local hamburger joint. Some say they serve the best burgers in town. The place has atmosphere, sorta, and the locals are mostly harmless. Smoking may still be permitted.

It's a no frills sort of place...no menu...the list of food is on the wall and you are given your... More

I followed the recommendation of a friend and tried the cheese burger which I was told was the best in town. It was good. Smoking is ok in the restaurant and I suspect will always be ok in the restaurant.
