We ordered breakfast, I ordered french toast--the worst I've ever had. Their pancakes were so so and the hash also was not good. They gave us a free homemade cinnamon roll which was not very tasty, sort of dry. Altogether it was a bust, I'm sorry to say.

We have eaten here countless time and every time, delicious. Our special waitress is Rita. She is as sweet as they come. Breakfast is a delight. Biscuits and gravy to die for. Breakfast and lunch specials are the real meal deal. Excellent!

This is not someplace I would go to again. I was very disappointed with the food. It wasn't cooked the way I ask for it to be and it was cold when it was brought to the table. This is a local restaurant that has regular customers they cater to. It was a bad experience.

My husband and I bought a Groupon and ate here. It felt very homey and welcoming. The service was great! I had a triple decker club sandwich and my husband had the chicken fried steak. Everything was the appropriate temperature and tasted great! We will definitely return if we are in the area again.

Been around for over 20 years, a friendly place for breakfast and lunch. They have THE best grits in Ocala, give them a try, you won't be disappointed!

My husband took me to Richard's for breakfast. Place was crowdy and stuffy. I did not like decor and service. Breakfast was OK

Ok, so breakfast here was ok. There were four of us this morning. It was nothing special. Just a local joint. The waitress was another story. My husband wanted to add a biscuit and gravy to his order. That didn't set right with her for some reason. After complaining about trying to price it out, she huffed off. Needless to... More

My wife and I had breakfast here and it was excellent. Classic American diner, with friendly staff and perfectly cooked food. Next to the register there is a basket that has cookies to purchase. If you go to this place and don't snag some peanut butter cookies, you're doing yourself a terrible disservice. Yummy!!!

My husband and I live here and had never stopped by so we decided to try something new today. The building is old and it gets a little noisy, I could tell there were a lot of regulars there. The food was very good and filling. I had country fried steak. My husband had corned beef hash. We didn't really... More
