I was brought here by a lady friend who lives in Richmond. We came for lunch and I was more than pleased. Our server was Princess because she wore her hair in a Princess Leia bun.. My friend ordered their tuna fish sandwich and I took their three cheeseburger - it was half pound and Princess told me she would... More

Had a really good breakfast here. Located among numerous warehouses, but don't let the location bother you. Biscuits and gravy were excellent.

We visited this restaurant accidentally after we visited the brewery around the corner. The kids were hungry and my hubby looked up near by restaurants and we came across this gem of a place. The outside doesn't look fancy or anything, but the inside has the look and feel of an older diner. The kids were happy coloring while we... More

Ashley was our waitress, and she was so nice! The Dairy Bar is an excellent place for all sorts of fun food. We went there for breakfast and faced so many excellent choices. Ashley walked us through all the options, made recommendations, and even spent a little time chatting with us. The food arrived quickly and it was great. We... More

This gem is a great breakfast spot. Everything is wonderful. We go every weekend and everyone is focused on you getting great food and hardy breakfast. Great family restaurant.

Lots of breakfast options at this clean, cute restaurant. Portions were good. Nice to get orange juice that didn't come in a teeny glass. Service was courteous and fast, but we were not rushed.

Even after reading some of the negative comments about their breakfast selection and how Southern Living should not have put their stamp of approval on this restaurant, we chose to go anyway. I have three children ages 7, 9, and 11 who love milkshakes. After we were running around Richmond doing other things I would ask locals where is the... More

Went here with six total in our party and they were already packed when we arrived. But within 10 minutes, we were seated. Never knew about this gem. They have been around for over 70 years and they only serve breakfast and lunch. We arrived around 12:30 on a Sunday and had no idea that they closed at 2:00 p.m.... More

We stopped here for lunch with 2 large families and the staff could not have been more accommodating to our crazy crew. We had 5 kids and 4 adults, and the Dairy Bar was able to accommodate us nicely in 2 booths in the back. The food was delicious and I am craving another one of those amazing milkshakes right...
