“Enjoyed weekly dining enough to become "regulars"”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Sure there are some quirks to be worked out but isn't that the case at EVERY restaurant? We have dined here nearly every night of the week with 2 to 14 in our groups with and without reservations. Richard's handles all the situations well. Wing nights?....if your realistic...how fast do you think you can cook thousands of wings? The wait IS worth it. Prime rib cut is spot on for clarity and marbling, however it could be infused with a bit more flavor. Hand carved paper thin to roast thick per your request. One could easily fill up with the salad bar and all its toppings and sides. Richard's has become a family favorite. Great food and great staff. We know all of their names.

“Don't forget the soup”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Homemade soups on the salad bar are great, and one of the best bleu cheese dressings in the area. Tuesday pizza night with unlimited toppings $10, Thursday wings night $5 with a great array of sauces. Steaks and Friday fish fry are always good, and service is friendly and very family. We are frequent flyers here.

“Excellent Fish Fry & Best Steaks in Wausau”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We often go to Richards on Friday night for fish fry. They have many different options to choose from including deep fried to broiled with many options in between. The service is always friendly and they are very gracious about accepting the vouchers from Deal Chicken. The tenderloin is also a must have and they even carry my favorite wine (moscato). They include a fresh salad bar with every meal - something that is getting harder and harder to find in the area. All bread is homemade as are the soups on the salad bar. Will continue to visit Richard's on a regular basis.

“Thursday Wings Rock”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

The Thursday wings is a great value ($5 all you can eat). We were hungry so we also got ribeye sandwiches, which were okay.
