“Excellent breakfast!”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

Driving to the Dairy Bar, you might think you have gotten lost in an industrial section of the city. Fear not! This is a hidden gem. Good, basic food at very reasonable prices. The milkshakes were delicious, the biscuits flaky and the eggs and bacon crispy.

“A Richmond Tradition”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

The Dairy Bar never disappoints. With great breakfast and lunch menus there is something for everyone. My personal favorite is the vegetarian vegetable soup. Always speedy and pleasant sevice as well. Treat yourself to a great tasting milkshake when you finish.

“Average with a few highlights”
Reviewed July 17, 2011

My wife and I came here for breakfast one Sunday morning. I had the extravaganza omelet with biscuit and home fries. The home fries are awesome. I'm not sure what is in the seasoning, but they are excellent. They are crisp and have great flavor. The omelet was good, but nothing special. It had plenty of stuffing of bacon, ham, sausage, tomato and cheese and even had extra on top.
My wife had the french toast and sausage. She really loved the sausage, but thought the bread was too soggy. Not impressed with that.

“A Richmond Treasure and Institution - Best shakes around.”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

The Dairy Bar never disappoints. Both breakfast and lunch are great, but the breakfast is out of this world. The Dairy Bar is one of the best kept secrets in town. Perhaps because those who go there want to keep it to themselves. On any given day, you will see a who's who of the South in the restaurant. Parents bring their kids because their parents brought them. Service is always prompt and friendly and the food is consistently fresh. The owners are always adding new temptations to the menu, so ask what's new. We highly recommend the Dairy Bar. Especially great place for kids. Be sure to go on Halloween, too!
