You walk in to an atmosphere that reminds you of how quaint older restaurants on the east coast must of been 100 years ago. The wood panel ceiling, the woodwork on the fire place, the old brass clock on the mantel, all signs of elegance. We enjoyed our Easter lunch there in a room that was nearly private. The Italian...

We had a group of around 20 (previous notice was given to the restaurant) and arrived for dinner on a Saturday night. The menu was very extensive and the service was very attentive. Beef Stroganoff was a special that night and my wife enjoyed the meal (and took enough home for lunch the next day!) I had the lightly breaded... More

We only get to visit Richmond for a few days each year to attend the Basketweavers Convention. Our group of 6 decided to try The Olde Richmond Inn this year and we were delighted. Very lovely establishment with dressy casual dress code (a nice exception any more), but no problem as a few of us came right from weaving. Dinners... More

Popped in for quiet date night dinner. Met with professional smiling staff. Menu, as always, is good standard. Specials board nice addition- that's where Walleye is! Fried to perfection with onion skin thin coating that complements, not over powering cloak. Zucchini blend yummy accompaniment. No dessert-we were stuffed. ;-)

The Olde Richmond Inn is the best in Richmond. A great place to DINE. As always the Prime Rib a good selection, however their menu has many types of meals to select. Service is best to the customer.

The restaurant, food and service is fantastic, very casual atmosphere, historical building, felt almost like stepping back in time somewhat. Menu has many options and there were numerous healthy options as well, was there for lunch, place was busy but was seated quickly, specials for the day were brought around on a chalkboard and easel which was placed at our...

The Good: local, historical, large menu, nice decor, quick service, good value The Bad: old fashioned menu and tastes This is a historical register sort of place that has been in it's current form for a long time. It's a local legend that is unfortunately showing its age. There is plenty of parking and the exterior is a classic. The... More
