Food was wonderful. We had prime rib and the filet, cooked perfectly. The stuffed baked potato was really good as well. We started with drinks in bar area downstairs. You can eat there if you want or in the dining area upstairs. Service was friendly and informative about food and the restaurant. Will return!

We enjoyed our food very much but it is on the pricey side. Make sure you get a slice of cake, our strawberry was delicious!

The food was ok, but the experience was horrible once we saw a roach crawling up the wall in the booth we were sitting at. What was worse was the server's comment when we complained about the roach, she said, "would you like to move seats?" Needless to say we won't be back, disgusting, and should be fumigated.

A confession, we are regulars and keep returning for the bar banter. JP at PR's is the best bartender and he's conscientious at keeping the conversation going for all of his customers, new and returning. We also enjoy the food and Richard's hello's.

We started off badly because they could not find the reservation I had made. This is the second time that has happened in the last year. We waited for 30 minutes to get a table on a very busy Thursday night the week before Christmas. They did offer to serve us a drink we could have while sitting in the... More

A "throw the dart" to help find a new restaurant experience led to Poor Richards. We now make the drive from Atlanta often to enjoy good food and good service. You have to try the fresh, homemade cakes! We always ask for an alcove for the family and enjoy almost dedicated, personal attention!

We went to this restaurant last spring and I thought it was overrated in comparison to its reputation, especially since my entrée was close to $30.00. However, we went again last weekend and we were very satisfied. The atmosphere in the downstairs is very warm and accommodating; very `80's-like. And that's in a good way. We had onion rings, shrimp,... More

The meal was a little pricey but well worth it. The prime rib was great. This is an upscale restaurant with linen tablecloths.
