This place is small but delivers with big flavor! We originally planned to come and sut on the Supper side, but they were a bit crowded and had a wait, but Lunch was serving the same menu, so we got to enjoy our meal at the bar inside. The menu was full great southern cousine options. I enjoyed the Salmon... More

One of the tiniest restaurants you could ever imagine with the most incredible food. My husband and I went on a "staycation" from Virginia Beach to go see a show at The National and spend the night in downtown Richmond. A friend that lives in Richmond told us we should try Lunch /Supper in the brewery district off Summit Ave.... More

I love the feel of Scott's Addition, very proud of the work and small businesses booming down there. Fiance and I decided to stop in for a nite. I work out not far from there and had always wanted to stop in, glad we did. Space is quaint and eclectic in styling but makes sense. Good beers on tap and... More

Yes Lunch is small. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner but they have a sister restaurant next door named Supper that is bigger and can handle larger groups. Supper serves lunch and dinner. At Lunch we started with the pimento cheese and cracklins. The pimento cheese has pickles and ham mixed in. It was fabulous. I haven't had many cracklins... More

The place is pretty small but it is very nice inside and they have a outdoor patio if you choose so. The menu was pretty diverse. I seen everything from crab cakes to veggie burgers. Had a really good beer (IPA) at the bar. Bar tender was attentive. I ordered the beef burger with pulled pork and BBQ sauce. It... More

I will say that Ive always had excellent meals at "Supper" but I've had a few "just ok" meals at Lunch. The space is very small, so expect a wait at normal lunch times. It might be the smaller portions lunch gives you.. now I know it's lunch, but the sandwiches I've ordered have been a tad small. That being... More

The family visited mid-morning for brunch. The place pretty small and was very crowded and loud. However we only waited a few minutes to be seated at a long communal table with other guests. We ordered various breakfast specialties, and they were all outstanding, and large portions too. We split a couple of deserts after the meal, and they too... More

I had a grilled veggie sandwich that was amazing! The veggies were cooked perfectly with pesto sauce. My friend had the roast beef sandwich she said was divine. Would definitely go here again. The restaurant is tiny so go early or plan on waiting

Thank Susan C
