Found this place on trip advisor as we were passing through Richmond on our way to Miami. It has a large bar area and we ate there rather than wait for a table. The waiter was friendly and service was good. I had a wonton...More

The Fat Dragon is a great place to dine in the Scott's Addition area of Richmond. The food options are very good, the portions are plentiful, and the food itself is very good.

We looked up this place on our way to stay the night in Richmond, VA with our two school-aged kids. While not a typical destination for families, we all loved the vibrant bar feel with impeccable service despite the long initial wait on a Saturday...More

There were a lot of hypes about this place when it was first opened. A hip place, in an up and coming neighborhood of Scotts Addition. I finally went there recently. The atmosphere was excellent, fitting for the industrial surroundings. But the food is so...More
