Meet friends at the Dairy Bar for Sunday breakfast. Wonderful place to eat! Delicious pancakes. Our friends HIGHLY recommend the omelette that was stuffed with a crab cake. The entire menu looked fabulous. I do regret not leaving with one of the suggested milkshakes. Will definitely be back on our next visit to Richmond!

We had breakfast here after the wine expo and it was great. The staff is super nice and our food was served very quickly. We both had the Chris omelet which has a crab cake inside and it was delicious!! A must go if you're in the downtown Richmond area!!

We were told not to pass up the ice cream and we are so glad we listened! How else can you make amazing pancakes better but to add a banana split on top?? The food was delicious, the coffee was fresh, the atmosphere friendly and welcoming. A little hidden amongst the warehouses but I definitely recommend giving the Dairy Bar... More

My mom and I are now loyal customers. The place is old but well kept and the recipes are superb. After a meal, you have to follow up with a bit of ice cream. I enjoyed the beef burgers, veggie burgers and Salisbury steak meal.

The Dairy Bar always satisfies our need for a hot cup of coffee and a delicious breakfast after early Mass. Within two minutes of being seated we are ordering, and within fifteen minutes our breakfast is brought to the table. The staff are, without exception, friendly, efficient and helpful to the customers and each other - they seem to be... More

I was brought here by a lady friend who lives in Richmond. We came for lunch and I was more than pleased. Our server was Princess because she wore her hair in a Princess Leia bun.. My friend ordered their tuna fish sandwich and I took their three cheeseburger - it was half pound and Princess told me she would... More

Had a really good breakfast here. Located among numerous warehouses, but don't let the location bother you. Biscuits and gravy were excellent.

We visited this restaurant accidentally after we visited the brewery around the corner. The kids were hungry and my hubby looked up near by restaurants and we came across this gem of a place. The outside doesn't look fancy or anything, but the inside has the look and feel of an older diner. The kids were happy coloring while we... More

Ashley was our waitress, and she was so nice! The Dairy Bar is an excellent place for all sorts of fun food. We went there for breakfast and faced so many excellent choices. Ashley walked us through all the options, made recommendations, and even spent a little time chatting with us. The food arrived quickly and it was great. We... More
