i had very good service when i visited this restaurant. the food was excellent in my opinion. Award Nomination: Best Service

two words. Greasy. and spoon. Diner fare at its best.

As classic as a classic diner can get. The usuals -- eggs, toast, hashbrowns and great columbian coffee. The atmosphere is fun -- large fish tanks with eels and boat pictures galore. Being in Michigan, be prepared for cigarette smoke along with your omelette - but this is a place where you'd expect the waitress to take your order with a smoke hanging out the side of her mouth... haha. Cheap. Perfect

When Nate Bandit of Louisville's Bourbon Bandits described this diner as a place "that gives you the meat sweats," I knew I had to try it. Poor Richard's offers indoor smoking, bottomless cups of coffee and meat-intensive platters of greasy goodness. On day one, I had the chicken fried steak, three eggs, hashbrowns and toats. The steak arrived smothered in gravy. The hashbrowns were perfectly crispy, and the toast was two FULL slices of toast. It was enough food to two. I ate the whole thing for less than $6. On day two, I had the biscuits and gravy (again with toast and hashrowns). It was delicious and hugely filling. This place is hangover slayer, and every morning is a low-key party. The tables are big and can be joined together for maximum mob action.

You cannot say enough about the quality of this restaurant. The food is great, the price is right, and the atmosphere terrific. Guy Fieri of 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives' needs to visit Richards.
