Same ole but excellent! We had the salt fish with eggs and grits on a rainy morning. Wonderful food. Nice place to enjoy breakfast and read the newspaper with plenty of coffee. Very diverse population eats at McLeans.

Ordinary Southern brunch at a friendly and reasonable spot. We had to wait in a large room for 25 minutes for a table, waitress seemed overwhelmed. My Tuna Melt came without melted cheese.

Stopped here for lunch while traveling up I95 - had been recommended by a friend who knows the city. Large helpings of yummy comfort food. Huge pancakes! Everyone enjoyed their meals, though it did take a long time to get our meal - several other tables that came in after us had their food before we did. Other than that,... More

Nice place. Southern food., grits come with breakfast instead of potatoes. We were here on a busy Sunday morning. Service was cheerful and food was hot and plentiful. We'd go again if we were in the neighborhood. We were surprised with the amount of customers they have that the bathrooms were for one. One customer at a time. Need more.

I called McLeans restaurant this morning because we had hungry co-workers. We have placed a phone order several time in the past with no problems. Today was unbelievable! The first person that answered the phone was a male and he answered the phone as if he was at home. He stated, "hello"... I had to check to make sure I... More

Hubby and I recently visited family in Richmond, and we ate most of our meals with them. So, on our last morning, we wanted to treat them to breakfast, but asked for a recommendation. McLeans was their preference, and we were impressed. Okay, this is not one of the "best meals I've every had in a restaurant" because I once... More

There is usually a wait, but it doesn't take quite as long as they say. Omelettes are very good. The have turkey sausage, which is great and hard to find at other places. The service is nice and friendly and always with a smile.

Thank gommie
