First time Richmond visitors and we found The Dairy Bar on a TripAdvisor search. We enjoyed a very nice Sunday morning breakfast here. The environment inside is like a typical breakfast diner. We loved it. Fast and friendly service and the food was absolutely delicious!

Had lunch here, pretty simple....a plain burger with fries and a low carb patty melt with green beans. Simple, yet very tasty. Always provides friendly service. Two thumbs up!

Good local flair and food. Relaxed atmosphere. It is loud. Great for families for breakfast and lunch. Burger is too notch as are the onion rings. Fancy ain't their thing. Would remind you of a diner. Service is so-so.
