The waitress had a horrible attitude today and was only helpful when she wanted to be. Salad was horrible. Not sure who invented a tenderloin on texas toast smothered in french fries and nacho cheese, but they should stay out of the kitchen

Richard's is the greatest restaurant in Peoria between 2am and 4am. They have a burger with grilled cheese sandwiches as buns. Everything is massive and the portions are huge. Just don't go before 2am or you might be disappointed. Everything is pretty generic really.

I always wanted to try Richards. The location is pretty cool and I was not prepared for how big it turned out to be. Great bar scene and good pizza!

Richard's on Main is an underground restaurant, literally. Food was good, beer selection was good and seasonal, and the atmosphere was cool. Service was great also. Good place to hang with friends or coworkers.

We are a locally owned bar and restaurant, located in the heart of downtown Peoria. A 90 second walk to the Peoria Civic Center and a few seconds longer to the hotels. We are not responsible for any menu items or prices on TripAdvisor as a 3rd party puts that up and is beyond our control.
