We live locally and have been to Richard's a number of times. The service is usually good as is the food. What seems a bit odd are the very small portions with the entree's. My wife ordered the sliced pork tenderloin. Buried beneath a topping of mushrooms were three extremely small slices of pork. My wife, who is a Dietitian,... More

We apologize for the inconvenience, however we are glad you were able to bring this to your server’s attention and have the matter corrected. It sounds like the perhaps the kitchen provided the wrong portion size by mistake, and we will try to make sure this does not happen again going forward. We appreciate your loyal patronage, and hope you... More

Very cozy, friendly place with many traditional German dishes and regular American dishes also. Prices are great and a salad bar is included with many entrees.

This is a cool place with the authentic feel of a European restaurant and somewhat unique, very well prepared dishes. Excellent service, and a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Decor feels like Germany. Definitely recommend for couples or a larger group as well!

Quaint setting for authentic German food. The wait staff is excellent in describing the food for those not familiar with the cuisine. The bread baskets contain pretzels as well as buttery rolls. The main courses vary in types of meats and sauces but from the five in my party, we all made delicious choices! It was fun sharing. The sides... More

Went to try their German food. Menu and preparation are more northern (Hesse) than Bavarian. Food was good but have had better. Prices were fair for the quality and area. Might stop again if in the area.

Solid German fare. I had the sampler platter which gives you a generous portion of the wurst,roasts and schnitzels on offer plus sides like red cabbage,kraut,etc. Great selection of German beers on draft. Bread basket with pretzels and popovers. Good selection of quality deserts-the plum cake was an Oktoberfest special.

We were unexpectedly delighted to find a German place to eat in this town. Great, traditional atmosphere (brick interior walls, beer steins, etc.) good service. Pretzels and rolls were hot and made in house, along with a spicy mustard dip. Food was OK +. Looks like a great place to sit at the bar and drink beer.

Description
A true family run restaurant. Old world ambiance from the classic German favorites playing on the stereo overhead to the large collection of bier steins hanging on the walls. The professional wait staff work hard to ensure a 5 star experience. the incredible selection of imported wines and biers will refresh even the weariest traveler. You will sit down to our famous pretzels and rolls aside Richard's Own secret recipe mustard. The best of all the scrumptious flavors of authentic German recipes brought direct from Mannheim and traditional American classics. From Schnitzel, sausages and Sauerbraten to the finest steaks, seafood and soups, you will find something that appeals to you. OOOH! The desserts too. These will be the perfect finish to your meal, IF you left any room. We look forward to seeing you soon.
