large menu is somewhat pricey but once you finish you have to agree the meal was worth every cent. fish is fresh, delicately seasoned to allow some salt water to still get through, burgers are enormous, and constructed of prime beef i am sure. salad...More

Good place, especially downstairs to meet and greet folks. Not too big where you can hear each other talk. Happy hour is a nice way to end the day meeting place.

Poor Richards is a good restaurant when you want to go casual and get a decent meal. Their prime rib sandwich is very good and reasonably priced.
