Pretty much standard Richards Fare serving a very senior customer base. Service is passable but definitely biased toward their regular clientele. Food is standard fare for this chain. Nothing spectacular and a little overpriced for this area.

We were driving thru and stopped here from the Google search. The food was fabulous and reasonable. We guessed it was good based on the number of cars in the lot. We were hauling a camper and it was easy in or out. Yummy food and salad bar. Great service and iced tea to go.

It passed he "full parking lot test" and more! Great food, wide menu selection, quick and friendly service. We understand there are a number of these in Indiana, but definitely a "home town" atmosphere.

This is just a very average restaurant, nothing special. Inexpensive, but not much to recommend. The staff was very pleasant but inexperienced. The food is ok but fish was served alone on a plate -- no garnish or sides or anything.

Not great not terrible. My husband had salmon that he thought was pretty good but my chicken was kind of dry and tough. The place was not too clean. It was the end of the day and maybe they hadn't caught up from a busy dinner rush but still. . . It's a basic family type restaurant. I wouldn't go... More

Had breakfast here before heading back to Missouri. Was not all that impressed. Was givin a cracked coffee cup, there was not much on the menu to choose from for those who only eat certain foods. I ordered fruit took one bit n spit it into a napkin... Enough said.. Chances are I won't eat here again..

I met a friend for lunch at Richards and discovered what I anticipated. The menu was low cost, servings were small and it was a friendly neighborhood establishment. My friend had a BLT with less than three slices of bacon. My covered chicken must have been dieting and weighed three oz. or less. It was to have had Swiss cheese... More
