This was our second visit. We loved the gumbo, fried potatoes and jambalaya. Our teen had the bacon cheeseburger and gave it high marks. He scarfed it down with a hearty helping of fried potatoes and gumbo. The highlight was the shrimp and avocado salad....More

The food was good . One waitress so getting food and refills out was slow . Seating is very crowded . People were seated just a little to close for comfort . Could be so much more with a few improvements !

Great Food! Great Atmosphere! Great Service! I had the Jambalaya and it was fantastic. Only thing that could've improved upon is a larger drink selection.

A great menu selection and very friendly staff. Enjoyed the chance to try authentic southern dishes. Next time I want to try more seafood and the amazing dessert options. Would definitely go back for a low-key dinner.

Food is always great. The large grilled gulf shrimp over rice was excellent. Our new friends from Florida loved Richards and want to come back. Music is fun, atmosphere spot.on and worth the drive from any where. Always a fun time here!

I am from Louisiana and my wife surprised me on my birthday to celebrate here at Richard's. Great time. Live music super and the food was as authentic as being on Bourbon Street. The seafood gumbo, Ribeye and Redfish was on point. Enjoy.

Did the Fontana tour past Sunday and wanted to eat in a local place, found Richard's close by. Very local stop, with a New Orleans art vibe. Had live music playing even at noon on a Sunday. Food was good but selection is very limited...More
