Truly A Dining Destination-Old Richmond Inn
Setting the bar in Richmond for fine dining is a big accomplishment and the Old Richmond Inn has earned that title. Keeping with the late 1800’s decoration, you truly get an upscale experience. Opening the family restaurant over 28 years ago, the business has held strong to tradition and keeping an old school vibe and excellent food. When enjoying the Old Richmond Inn you will see why it is more of a destination than just a quick stop for food.
There are several “must try” items on the menu but my personal suggestion would be the Steak Au Poivre that you literally can cut with your fork. The steak is absolutely mouthwatering and the Chicken Picatta is cooked to perfection with flavor to match. The secret to the success of the Old Richmond Inn; everything is made from scratch and the vegetables are grown on the family farm. With such an amazing experience, you realize that this is an experience that you want to happen again.
