A confession, we are regulars and keep returning for the bar banter. JP at PR's is the best bartender and he's conscientious at keeping the conversation going for all of his customers, new and returning. We also enjoy the food and Richard's hello's.

We started off badly because they could not find the reservation I had made. This is the second time that has happened in the last year. We waited for 30 minutes to get a table on a very busy Thursday night the week before Christmas. They did offer to serve us a drink we could have while sitting in the... More

A "throw the dart" to help find a new restaurant experience led to Poor Richards. We now make the drive from Atlanta often to enjoy good food and good service. You have to try the fresh, homemade cakes! We always ask for an alcove for the family and enjoy almost dedicated, personal attention!

We went to this restaurant last spring and I thought it was overrated in comparison to its reputation, especially since my entrée was close to $30.00. However, we went again last weekend and we were very satisfied. The atmosphere in the downstairs is very warm and accommodating; very `80's-like. And that's in a good way. We had onion rings, shrimp,... More

The meal was a little pricey but well worth it. The prime rib was great. This is an upscale restaurant with linen tablecloths.

This is an upper end restaurant in Gainesville, GA. They serve well cooked entrees such as Steak and Seafood as well as delicious sides. The restaurant itself is very uppity looking especially on the inside. Tables have linen settings and seating is very comfortable and well placed. Food is excellent and service is professional. This is a very nice place... More

Poor Richards is and has been a great place to celebrate a special event or a place to grab a drink. Upstairs is more upscale fro dinner . "The basement" is also great to grab a quick dinner or drink. Service and quality have always been top notch here and the owner is hands on to make sure these things... More

large menu is somewhat pricey but once you finish you have to agree the meal was worth every cent. fish is fresh, delicately seasoned to allow some salt water to still get through, burgers are enormous, and constructed of prime beef i am sure. salad is fresh chilled and loaded with bacon!!! steaks dominate a large varied menu with sandwiches,...

Recently we ate here again for our anniversary after many years had elapsed. It is rare that a locally owned restaurant is still in business after 30 years. Great people. Good food for special occasions (upstairs) or everyday (downstairs). From steak and seafood to sandwiches and drinks, this is the place. Hoping it stays around for many more years.

I have been wanting to try it and went on a Wed night about 8 and there was only about 10 cars in the parking lot so I was a little concerned. Only saw one seated table upstairs so went to the bar as the same menu is served there. As others have mentioned it is at the high end... More
