“Too slow! Will not return!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Waited over 1.5 hours for food once we ordered. Wait staff pleasant enough but pushing drinks to cajole during long wait. Food good but presentation poor. Ownership definitely not customer oriented and acted as if being frustrated by the slow kitchen was our fault. No attempt at customer satisfaction with free dessert or even an apology! Will go for Pizza or Mexican on next trip to Elberton!

“A hidden gem to eat at in Elberton, GA”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

There is really no place to eat in Elberton except your normal fast food restaurants. Seems I had also found this out on a previous visit. Four of us were playing golf at the near by state park and when we ask for a restaurant reference was told “the best place and everyone eat at the Mexican place”…..well we didn’t want Mexican we want an American variety menu. I Googled “restaurants” and one of the map pop ups was Richards Restaurant and Lounge, but no information or web site. I had noticed them on a side street as we were driving though town to the park. I called Richards and they said they serve everything from sandwiches to steaks and shrimp. We said, “let’s take a chance”. What a pleasant surprise, there is a place to eat in Elberton other that fast food or ethnic. The restaurant was in the old part of town, with a great atmosphere, and a great menu in a lounge setup. There were several family groups there. Our group started with wings….then ordered from the main menu: the flounder sandwich, hamburger steak plate, hamburger, and grilled shrimp dinner… and each agreed that their meal was superb….there is a decent place to eat in Elberton, a hidden gem and I heartily recommend it.
