This is the place for fried fish, sweet cornbread, onions/peppers and potatoes. Big meal when you buy the 2 piece fish dinner or lunch.

Located in the downtown area of Richmond. My first visit, I went for a late lunch on a business trip, weekday. This place was referred by a friend. Metered parking was easy along the street, a block away. The staff was very attentive. I ordered the fried oyster dinner, served with grits and cabbage with a side of cornbread, which... More

Will definitely be back to partake in other dishes. At first I thought the prices were high for a soulfood local spot. But the quantity and the quality was worth the price in my opinion. Both will rival a fine downtown restaurant. I especially enjoyed the cheese grits and fried shrimp. My only disappointment, no collard greens or yams at... More

I decided to take my mother to the Croaker Spot for lunch on Saturday, October 29, 2016. We arrived at about 2:30 pm. I ordered the special which consisted of 3 fried chicken wings, collard greens, potato salad and dinner rolls for $16.99. The food portions were large. I could have easily shared my meal with someone else or asked... More

I must say that I was thoroughly impressed with the Croaker Spot restaurant. The seafood was perfectly fried, the grits creamy, and the cornbread had just the right amount of sweetness. During my time in Virginia, I must've visited several times. Food and wait staff second to none.

My family who lives in Richmond have been telling me for sometime to try Croaker's Spot. I'm sorry I waited so long! This was the best fried fish ever. The peppers and onions in their signature sauce was what set it off. I can't wait to return to Richmond to get some more. I had take out but I hear... More

Really enjoyed as UK visitors our first experience of soul food. Loved the Ozzie waitress and my seafood tagliatelle was delicious and the scallops massive and sweet. The Long Island iced tea was probably not a good idea after the flight to get to the US but was really good thanks for a good evening

This is just great food ... Great soul food and portion sizes. Just moved to area. I had the seafood bowl and the garlic toast points were delicious ... Only downside is the parking and wait ... But to me that's a great thing ... It's worth the wait. Service is awesome!
