My family who lives in Richmond have been telling me for sometime to try Croaker's Spot. I'm sorry I waited so long! This was the best fried fish ever. The peppers and onions in their signature sauce was what set it off. I can't wait to return to Richmond to get some more. I had take out but I hear... More

Really enjoyed as UK visitors our first experience of soul food. Loved the Ozzie waitress and my seafood tagliatelle was delicious and the scallops massive and sweet. The Long Island iced tea was probably not a good idea after the flight to get to the US but was really good thanks for a good evening

This is just great food ... Great soul food and portion sizes. Just moved to area. I had the seafood bowl and the garlic toast points were delicious ... Only downside is the parking and wait ... But to me that's a great thing ... It's worth the wait. Service is awesome!

This place is amazing. This was my second time eating at Croaker's Spot in Richmond,VA and both times I was blown away. This place is to die for, the food is so delicious. The Hot butter soul wedges are my personal favorites they will melt in your mouth and its only an appetizer. The portion of one entree is more... More

My wife suggested this restaurant for lunch and boy was she right. We had five in our party. The parking was a bit of a challenge....due to the popularity of the food. The atmosphere was casual and family friendly. The staff was neat, clean and friendly. From the hostess to our waitress, EVERYONE went out of their way to make... More

From the history of Mr Croaker and how the restaurant came to be, to the amazing staff of today, you won't be disappointed. The food is awesome, the quantities are huge, the prices are reasonable. The ambiance of the place is what makes it all pop, loud, boisterous, infectious. Don't go in with a bad mood, unless you want to... More

Everything about the restaurant pleased from the greeters, to the very warm wait staff, and obvi- the food! Fish was fried to perfection. The cornbread was magical. Will definitely come back when I return to Richmond!

It was my birthday dinner with my family, everything about my experience was excellent! The hostess was fabulous as she got out party of 7 in rather quickly on a Sunday nite, the waiter was quick with our drinks and all the food was excellent, I had the shrimp and grits, to die for and the prices of most entrees...
