However the food was average. Shrimp and grits was bland tasting and should have been warmer. There were four of us and all agreed that the food wasn't bad but wasn't remarkable either.

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!

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