Just good homestyle food, a good salad bar, and good service. My kind of place. I had the beef manhattan and a salad and it was great.

Fried chicken was yummy, but was disappointed by the salad bar...hard to find a good salad bar anymore, so was excited to see they had one, but it was VERY small

I have never had a bad dinner at Cracker Barrel in Fort Wayne. I wish they had at least one more on the North End of the city. It is my place to go to.

This is an older restaurant - small and older building. It's nothing fancy but for breakfast, they are better than some big chains when it comes to cooking eggs and bacon. I like poached eggs and it is difficult to get properly cooked poached eggs at most places (if they even offer to make them that way). At this Richards... More

When I worked in Ft Wayne I use to eat breakfast here a lot. I just had breakfast there last week, 6 Sept 2016, and it is still just as good as ever. The service is good and friendly and the food is excellent. This restaurant is great for all three meals.

Been frequenting the Richards chain for many years, some are better than others. Went for a girls lunch recently and was pleased with the service and food. The blt and grilled chicken salad was a hit with all 3 of us, and the price is right, I think $5.99.

It didn't look like much when we walked in, but it was late - 30 minutes until closing. The food surprised us. It was all home made and they served fresh local vegetables. Hubby fell in love with the rhubarb pie (yep, made on site by the lady who was the cashier that night!). We noticed lots of cars in... More

Wanted to try something different and glad we chose Richards! The menu isn't expansive by any means but I got the Ham and cheese skillet and it was amazing. It was around 6 bucks and was too much food to finish it all. Delicious!! They serve breakfast all day and have a lunch and dinner menu. 1 Free toy for... More

Our family had a lovely breakfast at this non-chain restaurant. There was plenty of seating for mid-morning breakfast. Our kids had yummy pancakes and we had great egg skillet dishes.

Sure the place is in need of a spruce up but you can't deny that the food is good and at a food price. We use to go for breakfast EVERY Sunday morning. We don't go nearly as often due to the fact that they got rid of the classic round waffle, like Waffle House and opted for a Belgium... More
