Checked the menu online and was looking forward to the salmon. It wasn't available when we arrived. I ordered the Mahi, and it was good. The pesto and farro were very good. My husband said his scallops were very good.

DELICIOUS brunch. Highly recommend the shrimp and grits. The grits melt in your mouth. The portions were very generous, service great, and the home fries were so flavorful. Highly recommend!!

Our son lives in Richmond and has been telling us about Millies for months. We finally had a chance to go there. Brunch was excellent. The home fries have a nice kick unlike anything I have ever had. I highly recommend this hidden Richmond gem.

After months of hearing great things about Millie’s, my husband and I finally went today for the first time. From the moment we walked in, I knew it wouldn’t be my last. First thing we saw were amazing tricks from the cook in the entrance....More

I had tried to eat at Millie’s twice before but the wait was hours long. So, this time we went for a later lunch and got the only available table. The daily menu is written on a blackboard and about as varied as any menu...More

We had not been to Richmond before and were looking for something good but tired of bbq and the ever present pork in the South. Millies was so unique. The restaurant is small and located on a corner- you will likely have to park down...More

We have traveled hundreds of miles on three separate occasions to eat at Millie's. The food is delicious and unique and the atmosphere is cool. We make this a necessary stop anytime we are in Richmond.

the restaurant is on a crowded corner without much parking, but down one block toward the river, there is plenty of street parking. We found a spot on the street that runs parallel (don't remember the name, sorry) but is on... More

Hi Douglas, We do not carry any beer on tap for space reasons (we are very small) but we do have local brews from Hardywood and Legend breweries...but they are available in bottles only. Hope to see you soon! cheers
