Richard has maintained an excellent high quality menu for many years. His wait staff is always friendly and efficient. Cocktails served are always just the way you want them. After travelling in business for fifty years I would compare Poor Richards to some of the finest restaurants across the entire country and consider this establishment as one of the finest.

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!

For The In-Laws Anniversary 59 years of being together , Loving and sharing life Poor Richards toped off the day with a relaxing delight of Ribs , Kebabs, and desert . Mom and Dad enjoyed it and want to go back. Take you time and enjoy the surroundings This is not a fast food place you come here to DINE.
