It's an oldie but a goodie. Be sure and get a salad with the hot bacon dressing and the steak soup! Service is always excellent and the wait is usually very reasonable. I only wish they were open for lunch.

Wide variety of excellent dishes in one of Gainesville's mainstay restaurants...Unique chicken livers are regulars on the menu. Delicious "homemade" dressings. Separate bar area has "Cheers" type atmosphere.....You'll see/meet numerous locals.....Prices quite reasonable for considering food quality.

I've been eating here for 32 years! Love the Hot Bacon Dressing! Of course Prime Rib is my favorite! Honestly I've never eaten anything at Poor Richards that was not good! Great place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, I've even been to a rehearsal dinner here!

For years Poor Richard's was the place to which the kids took/went on prom dates because it was special (translate expensive and an impression had to be made). It has since moved from that historic location, and finally I have my turn to eat there....More

One of our regular go to restaurants. For the last 20 years, dates, friends, business and most often Family meals. Not a better house dressing in North America.

We have been to Poor Richards a handful of times and usually eat upstairs, as we were unaware of the hidden gem in the basement! We were told there was a wait but we could wait in the lounge. Little did we know that this...More

Dress code is casual. In shorts, you might feel more comfortable downstairs. It's a more relaxed atmosphere.
