If you want an honest to goodness, fine breakfast, go to McLean's. They have the classics done extraordinarily well. I wasn't sure what to expect from the place, but I was full and happy when we left. The eggs were very tasty, potatoes were flavorful,...More

Perfect Mon chain place for breakfast or lunch. I've been there 6-8 times. I usually try something different each visit and never been disappointed. Good fast service.

I visited McCleans recently for both breakfast and lunch. Both meals were excellent and the staff was overwhelming friendly. It's a great find in Richmond.

Same ole but excellent! We had the salt fish with eggs and grits on a rainy morning. Wonderful food. Nice place to enjoy breakfast and read the newspaper with plenty of coffee. Very diverse population eats at McLeans.

Ordinary Southern brunch at a friendly and reasonable spot. We had to wait in a large room for 25 minutes for a table, waitress seemed overwhelmed. My Tuna Melt came without melted cheese.
