My husband used to love Millie's and every so often we decide to eat here to fulfill his need for nostalgia. I have to say it has been disappointing. The menu is just too confusing for the average eater. When you have to sit and google everything on the menu to figure out what it is, it just feels like... More

Food taste is the strength of this place. They know how to prepare foods. The staff is very friendly. They are a bit too loud during peak hours. Also, the bathrooms are dirty and well worn.

Had brunch with my girlfriends. We wanted to do brunch on a Sunday with mimosas and good food - so glad I check Trip Advisor for the rave reviews! We arrived to see the large group of people sitting outside on a gloomy day, so happy and enjoying themselves. We were inteigued. We were entertained the entire hour wait and... More

On several trips to Richmond Millie's is the go to place for Breakfast. The menu has several items called ZXXMess. Try one if you have a large appetite and really enjoy fun food. there may be some wait but it is worth the wait.

Millies is a small, cozy restaurant with eclectic furnishings. The food is as varied as the decorations. On our recent visit, our party sampled the calamari, Thai spicy shrimp, mussels and clams, duck, salmon , scallops and chicken. Everything was well prepared and tasty. The recommended Italian wines paired perfectly. Reservations are recommended since the restaurant fills quickly.

I was staying in Richmond for the night on the way to Savannah. Looking for somewhere to have dinner, I found Millie's on TripAdvisor. I'm glad I did. The meal was one of the most memorable of my trip. Everything was excellent, especially the duck. I'd highly reccomend this place for a delicous meal in a casual setting.

My fiancée and I hadn't been to Millie's in years and we were kicking ourselves for waiting so long. We had to wait for about 20 minutes but that just made the food taste better. My wife had the Salmon and Eggs which she inhaled. I had the Devils Mess which is a Millie's specialty; three egg frittata with chorizo,... More

We are new to the Richmond area and looked for a great place for brunch. We did an online search and Millie's Diner was on the list of places near our home. They were busy, and allowed us to sit at the first open booth. Our waitress was pleasant and energetic. She took the time to explain the specials of... More

Millie's was very busy on the Sunday morning we went. We had a party of 6 and waited close to an hour. We were able to get drinks at the bar and sit outside on the patio while we waited. Being a Southerner, I was disappointed they were out of one of the daily specials - Scallops and Grits. I... More

From the minute you walk in till you waddle out Millie's is the place to eat brunch. We had 3 messes and one chickpea burger. All was fantastic. Great service, very attentive to water and coffee refills and " just checkin' in " . Have never been to Richmond before but will definitely go back. '';
