    One of Richmond’s best brunch spots. Got the Devil’s mess and it was delicious. The apple cider mimosa are fantastic too!

    The food was fine but not exceptional. The staff working the tables should see to it that the table is cleaned (I ran my finger and it had a greasy like film on it) which comes from using the same towel to clean multiple tables as I observed. I just wanted to eat and continue my vacation. As for atmosphere, I found the ambiance noise loud. The bathroom is downstairs…better hold the railing, if you are a senior.

    A lovely little diner with delicious food and wonderful staff! I went there for a my birthday brunch and got the Cajun mess, it was delicious, and I like that it’s an amount of food you can reasonably eat in one sitting. The ‘mess’ is like a frittata:)

    Millie’s food we had was not good. It was way too salty – the potatoes were burned. But what bothered me the most was how dirty it was. The counter side where they were doing food prep was so dirty – made me understand better why it was so dark in there. Which it was so dark it was impossible to read the menu without using your phone flashlight. First and last visit –

    Small corner establishment with a pretty darn good breakfast. Amazing hostess greeted us and lucky for us, there was an outdoor table. We did make reservations in advance because we had heard that Saturdays can be pretty busy. I have to tell you that my favorite part of the day is holding a good mug of coffee so when we were served our coffee in paper cups, I honestly was a bit disappointed. Not sure if you get a real cup if you dine inside….but the coffee was pretty darn good. So, I will overlook the paper cup if it makes sense for good reasons. Now on to the food, my dish was amazing. I had an omelette and potatoes and my daughter has some kind of eggs on a croissant with canadian bacon (I believe). She did say her meat was on the saliter side so maybe ask before you order. The morning could not have been prettier and sitting outside enjoying a great breakfast was such a treat. Will definitely be going back soon!

    Food: food was amazing! We got the Devil’s Mess and the Cajun mess. Both were phenomenal. Coffee was good but nothing to write home about.

    Service: most the staff we interacted with were polite. Our server was a little unfriendly but I think it was just due to being busy.

    Atmosphere: cute American diner with indoor and outdoor seating.

    If you’re coming for brunch, be prepared to wait. But be prepared for it to be worth it. This cute little space serves a delicious menu and an array of tasty cocktails. On top of that, the service is friendly and personable. Every time I’m in Richmond, this is my go-to for a terrific brunch. Try the Huevos Rancheros!

    Went for Sunday brunch. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. It was very busy so was a bit loud but not bad. Our server was very friendly and did a great job. Had the special which can’t remember the name, but it was very good. Steak wrap with fried eggs and pico de gallon and a side of spicy potatoes. Presentation was commendable. Coffee was solid. Overall i was very impressed and would absolutely recommend. Hope to go back soon.

    i didn’t have an issue finding street parking, but did have to park a few blocks away. Not a problem though.

    Millie’s is a small diner with an elevated menu but nostalgic atmosphere. We had the lump crab enchilada, the chorizo omelette, and the Cajun mess frittata. They all came with homes fries and every single item was seasoned to perfection we ate every drop. Our server was attentive and although small you don’t feel like it once you’re sitting down because of the amazing ventilation.

    A dive bar diner right out of the ‘60s. It’s loud and proud and the food comes fast and plentiful. If you don’t like Millie’s you need to get yourself a soul. If you’re traveling, get out of downtown and eat where real Richmonders eat. And don’t forget to tip the cooks

    We stopped by in the middle of the week a half hour before they were closing with a large group. They still had everyone’s food out in under 20 minutes and it was all very good. Nobody had a negative thing to say about the food other than some of the portion sizes were a little small. I will definitely be coming back.

    I will have to say that this place may have just served me the best hamburger I have ever had. It takes a lot for me to say this about a burger but this place is memorable. I honestly can’t think of a better burger I have had anywhere. Only comparable place was at a diner in St. Louis called courtesy diner which sadly closed down. Only suggestion I would have for this restaurant is to serve French fries as they don’t offer them. My partner got the eggs Benedict and he said it was the best he ever had as well. Even with the lack of fries, Still this place is amazing and the burger was heavenly and I’ll be back. Also, while you’re here make sure you take time to use the bathroom. The toilet is very clean.

    This is the place to go if you like eggs. It was very difficult for me to find something I could eat. All though the choice are basic the menu just didn’t appeal to me. For a bigger guy I felt the booths were very tight and uncomfortable. The service was great and the burger was ok, nothing to write home about. This menu (as for me) lacked excitement. Nothing on the menu screamed you have to try me. The server and service was good and steady. The hostess looked like a blond Ann Hathaway. Very pretty and the place was convenient. Not Keto Friendly.

    I took my son here on Sunday. The place is incredibly small, and even with forty people, it seems packed. I would suggest making a reservation if you’re planning on going during the weekend because you might not be lucky enough to get a seat right away like we were. Despite being small, though, it’s a cute place with a very hipster vibe. They even have juke boxes at the tables.

    I got the veggie wrap with a side of home fries. To be honest, I would have liked a bit more seasoning on the wrap. I added some sriracha sauce, and it wasn’t bad, but also wasn’t anything I’d go back for. My son got a side of scrambled eggs because it was the only thing on the menu he liked. The staff were friendly and gave us free refills, but my tea was only lukewarm.

    Nothing was bad by any means, and I’d happily go back in the future. But nothing there made me say, “Wow! I can’t wait to have this again.”

    I opted for the Eggs, but to be honest, the food was just average. Perhaps my expectations were too high after reading the reviews. Unfortunately, I didn’t find anything remarkable or outstanding that would make me want to come back again. The portion sizes were typical, and the Eggs Benny had a noticeable level of spiciness due to the curry-like spice blend. Personally, I don’t think it was worth that I spent here. On a brighter note, the staff was courteous and efficient in preparing the food, making it a pleasant place for breakfast. If you’re not a fan of spicy food, it’s worth noting that there’s a slight touch of heat in their dishes.

    Millie’s diner Certainly makes East Main Street in Richmond VA “cooler,” I’m not so cool myself but hanging out at a cool restaurant feels good. Millies is deriving ideas, decor and tastes from a broad range of sources and is mentally stimulating. Chill music and cocktails are served too. I better refrain as it is likely a “bad look”, to drink and Fly” although one of my friends says “practice makes perfect”. – But as always, what makes a place ??? The people !!! Someone named Paul Keevil is the proprietor and he is bringing it all together and has been since 1989. The staff took me down a journey that I’d like to repeat, with tasty food and friendly service!!! I’ll definitely be back to try some of the other dishes when back here in Richmond. VA.

    I thought the service was rude and they were more concerned with themselves. Food is OK at best. The breakfast leaves much to be desired and the booths are cramped. When they told me to basically leave because they didn’t open for another 10 min it set the tone. If you aren’t open then lock your door. If a customer comes in at least offer them a coffee or drink until you are ready to serve them.

A simple omelet with amazing home fries and herbed cheesy grits!! My bf had the lobster scrambled eggs in a puffed pastry. He was pleased at the amount of lobster and loved all the flavors it presented!! I also LOVED having a reservation and not having to wait!!

The Huevos Rancheros and Eggs Benedict were amazing! Can’t wait to return from Maryland to this delightful place!

    Millie’s Ratings: 4.2/5

    Food: 4.5/5 – I am always on the hunt for good brunch spots in Richmond. I’d been to a few in the RVA area, and I really enjoyed Millie’s. The food is good, vibes are outstanding and fantastic! It is a great spot for a relaxing time and welcoming hospitality from the staffs. Please read the descriptions of the item I got for more details and visit my IG (noraeatsgood) for more content.

    – Eggs Ben-Gurion [GET]: A perfectly toasted everything bagel, fluffy and chewy, topped with smoked salmon and two nicely poached eggs. The smoked salmon is fresh and tasty. The hollandaise glaze was solid, a bit on the heavier side, but definitely added that moistness to the bagel. Unlike English muffins, I like the twist here, because the bread is denser and chewier. If you like spicy, make sure to add sriracha to the Ben-Gurion. I like their house made potatoes a lot too. They are not as crispy, but super flavorful, covered with bold spices and got a kick to it.

    Ambiance: 4.25/5 – Walking in, we can immediately feel the fun and energetic vibes. There’s a small kitchen and bar right at the entrance, really cool. We sat in the back section, where the booths and decorated jukebox are located. There’s upbeat music at the diner, but not too loud that we can’t hear each other. Restrooms are downstairs with cool decor.

    Price: 4/5 – The eggs ben-gurion was $15 before tax and comes with a side of potatoes. Although it doesn’t seem like there’s a lot, but this meal was actually quite satisfying and filling. It is worth it.

    Service: 4/5 – Our server was nice, and we got seated as soon as we arrived for our reservation. The staffs are all very friendly, service was prompt, and welcoming. He took our orders and was able to take some special food requests from my sister as well. He would stop by and ask if we need anything and constantly come by to pick up our trash to free up some room for us on the table. Make sure to reserve a spot on OpenTable or call them.

    BLUF: Classic Southern brunch spot and a classic in RVA. They have been around for over 20+ years and are known for their famous potatoes. They use bold flavors, so the food can be either on the spicier or saltier side, just FYI. I highly recommend the Ben-Gurion if you are a fan of Egg Benedicts, interesting twist with a bagel or getting the corned beef hash. I would return again in the future.

    The portions are small, is very pricey and the menu I personally found it limited, weird (for a breakfast place), not sophisticated to match those prices and I didn’t like much any entree on the menu. Honestly I couldn’t connect with the food and the menu despite the fact that I really want to…. Crew is super nice and attentive. The place is small and cozy inside. Not my cup of tea. Really..

    We ordered the Eggs Benny and the Devil’s Mess. The food was just okay. I guess I had my hopes up too high when I was reading the reviews here. I didn’t find anything special or phenomenal to make it a memorable place to eat at. They also charge you a 20% surcharge for the takeout orders. The portions are the normal portions. The Devil’s Mess does have some spice to it. It had a similar spice ingredient that goes in curry. The potatoes were on the cold side and some of them were still crunchy. I personally didn’t think it was worth the $37 I spent here…
    The service, however, is very nice overall and they are fast at having the food prepared. It’s a nice place to have breakfast.

It looked like a Kraft commercial every time I took a bite, you know with the stings of cheese going from my plate to my mouth!! Also very filling. The service was pretty good as well. Definitely going again and would recommend it to anyone!!

    The food was absolutely out of this world! For a short order diner, they sling some top knotch gourmet with a high-class plating. I’m definitely bringing all my visiting friends to this place!

    It’s been a while since I’ve left a restaurant review, but this is a great one to get to review!

    First, rhe food was genuinely phenomenal. Mostly Egg dishes, so don’t visit looking for Waffles and Pancakes, however I had the Scrambles Eggs & Lobster with a Puff Pastry and it was absolutely worth it!

    Price wise, everything is well priced. Nothing felt like it was overpriced.

    Atmosphere is a 90’s-early 2000s diner style and has the vibe from music to dress code.

    Killer Flank Steak and Eggs. Whatever hot sauce they put on the side too is awesome!

    I live right next to this place and decided to slide in for a meal. The music and ambience kept me dancing the entire time. It’s a playlist of every relevant sample from the passed 20 years. The food blew me away. What I ordered was so flavorful there was no need to ask for ketchup. I was surprised to hear someone ask for salt. I eat like a bird and this is the closest I’ve come to clearing my plate at a restaurant in some time. My server and the host were also pleasant and even took the time to ask about the work I was doing at the table. As I sit here dancing to boogie wonderland I thought to myself, “where is google?” Here I am. A well deserved 5 stars.

    Both my wife and I where disappointed with our meal. I was surprised due the high rating the restaurant previously received. You can by my pics the food was not greasy. We got there at 1030in the morning and I had a two day old toasted croissant that feel apart. They toasted it to hide how old the bread was. My potatoes where old and soft. They look like mush. The bacon was good. My wife dish was better but not by much. The hostess (Carolyn) was very very nice and provided great service.
    Not sure what was going but they can do better. I hope this was a one off event. The place has a lot of charm.

    OMG. This place was absolutely fantabulous! The food was ecclectic and awesome. I ordered the corned beef hash and was very happy it wasn’t from a can. Real corned beef hash is a rare find around here and if you do find it, 9/10 it ain’t good. This was bussin! It was simply corned beef and potatoes with peppers on onions. I got my eggs scrambled rather than poached but the presentation was still cute. They cheese was real too! That may sound weird, but most restaurants dont use real cheese. What really got me was the kitchen was in the front of the house. Two guys was in that small area flippin gourmet stlye entrees with beautiful execution. I literally asked the waiter was that the real kitchen! Like mabe they hid one somewhere or something. I loved the menu choices so much I didn’t want to choose one thing. Apparently I have to go back and try everything lol. I would have given 5 stars but the one thing that killed it for me was the cooks were not wearing gloves or washing their hands. They were handling raw eggs and touching everything else including toppings from the cold bar. I didn’t like that it was really dark in there as well. The decor was quirky and the music of rock was an interesting choice. But it wasn’t that for me, the food takes it home for the win!

    Glad I made it here for brunch before leaving Richmond. Owner is English and he said to me “there’s nothing like a good curry back home in London” and so he has introduced some of the Indian curry spices into items here, such as the open faced omelet he calls the Devil’s Mess. The home fries also have a little heat to them. Overall, I definitely recommend coming here for a solid breakfast.

    Staff was quite friendly and service was overall wondeful. AMAZING food selection especially for pescitarian diets. I wanted to try EVERYTHING! Settled for the Avocado, Tomato and White Cheddar Omlette. Home Fries were the best I’ve had in a long time. If you don’t like spicy just be aware they have a smidge of heat.

    We stopped here for breakfast during our stay in Richmond. Very cool little place, friendly service, and unique and tasty food.

    I got the Cajun Mess and it was delicious. My boyfriend got the Devil’s Shrimp and Grits and it was pretty good too. Portion sizes were great and prices were reasonable.

  150. bill smith 2022/01

    I hadn’t been back to Millie’s since before the pandemic and was really looking forward to the great food and service that was the rule there before. I was thoroughly disappointed on both counts. For starters, we were thoroughly ignored by the server for quite a while. When she finally brought us water and asked how we were and what drinks we wanted I said we were hungry and ready to order our food as well but she refused to take our food order and insisted on taking only our drinks. I insisted that we already knew what we wanted and again she brushed it over, refused to take our order and became very grumpy with us for the rest of our visit. She only came to take our food order much much later. In spite of her grumpiness I looked forward to having some delicious food but when our food came my salmon was really dry and tasted mostly of pepper. My wife’s veggie mess was just as dry and uninspired. This was surprising because we’d been coming to Millie’s for years and had tried all of their dishes and they were always delicious and perfectly cooked(the only exception being the Cuban mess which we didn’t like) from sandwiches to lobster dishes in a delicate pastry shell. Even their hot chocolate was special since they used to use fresh cream. This time even that was lousy and overly sugary. Maybe Paul is now more focused in his newish and popular cafe and has forgotten Millie’s or maybe the chef was having a bad day, but we were very disappointed 😞

  155. Trey Thompson 2021/12

    This was hard to rate. On face value the experience was a three for me. The music was a bit much for 9am (blaring country). The food was of good quality, but the salmon a bit over cooked. Service was prompt and polite. No charge for second glass of cold brew. So three, but will probably come again.

    Only come here if you want to eat the best brunch of your life. I always get the eggs Benedict because I fear change, but my SO has tried most of the menu and never been disappointed. The fried potatoes may be on the spicier side for some people, but I think they’re bomb. Quirky retro vibes and cozy booths and great service. Be prepared for a short wait on the weekends, as this place is very popular with the locals. Don’t worry though, they’ll set you up with a great patio table and a drink of your choice to tide you over until you are seated. #1 brunch in RVA.

  157. Drew Snead 2021/12

    Rode up to Millie’s Diner from the Capital Trail. Outdoor seating available which was great to keep an eye on the bikes. The burger and avocado BLT sandwiches were excellent. No fries or potatoes chips to go with the sandwiches. They do serve a spicy potatoe salad instead. Service was great and the prices were reasonable.

    3 1/2. Quaint place. Interesting menu. Tasty enough.
    I’m told it’s one of THE places to eat (breakfast) (open 9am- ’till 3pm) in Richmond.
    I’m told arrive Before 10 on a sunday or you’ll be waiting quite a while. We had reservations.

  171. Casey Roberts 2021/10

    Delicious! The only issues we had were with parking and the wait, but there are ways to alleviate that. If you aren’t familiar, there are a couple of tips I can give you for Millie’s. One, parking in that area is atrocious. Fortunately, Millie’s actually has a small parking lot across the street, behind and above the gas station across the street. Two, you can actually set up a reservation ahead of time using the Open Table app, which they also link on their website.

    My friend ordered the Eggs Ben-Gurion, and I ordered the Devil’s Shrimp and Grits. I forgot to take pictures, but presentation was on point, even during the Sunday brunch rush. My dish was delicious, and I even ordered a side of their house potatoes, which were diced potatoes that had been seasoned almost like an Indian curry, very awesome. My friend’s Eggs Ben-Gurion, a unique take on eggs Benedict, an everything bagel instead of English muffin and nova lox instead of ham, is now his favorite way to eat eggs Benedict.

    When I visit Richmond, Millie’s is a go-to. I highly recommend anyone to swing by and check it out. Next time, I’ll definitely post pictures.

    Without any reservati Valentines day, we decided to visit our favorite brunch restaurant. We had to wait 30 or 40 minutes just outside, happily enjoying our spicy Bloody Mary’s! Once seated, our food was served promtly. Both of our omelets were fantastic! I am definitely over this covid protocol of plastic fork utensils, and cups, when we are served our meals on regular dishes that are sanitized by the dishwasher systems. It just doesn’t make sense to me. But, these are different times . Paul, the owner, runs and manage the best restuarants (multiple) in the Shockoe Bottom area. I want you all to get out now, to explore and experience these unique cusine offerings by these terrific non-chain owned entrepenuers. Please support all of our local small businesses! THIS IS WHAT MAKES Richmond VA, RICHMOND!!!

  182. Teddy Force 2021/07

    The atmosphere of the restaurant was a little odd – but definitely quirky and fun. However, the food and service left much to be desired; both felt unorganized and tasteless. To be exact, I ordered a crab omelet and grit – the omelet was greasy which was a first for me with eggs and the grits were tasteless, even after a cautionary amount of salt. The grits were a different texture entirely and not worth ordering. Not a bad place if there are no other brunch places available, but not my first or tenth choice.

    Called a month in advanced to ask about if they could do a reservation for 6 inside since it doesn’t offer it on open table. The lady on the phone said she could make my reservation over the phone. This was for Father’s Day. I called to check that day, they told me no reservation existed and they only accept reservations through open table. They proceed to get another lady on the phone who claimed she probably took my reservation on the phone last month but it will not be accepted. Complete laziness that they weren’t capable of telling me about how to do larger reservation when I called a month ago. Almost all restaurants were booked since everything good screwed up last minute.

    They don’t seat you until you entire party is there. Even though just one person was running late they refused to seat us. So we left.

    They were very accommodating with patio seating and our server was nice. But, server forgot to ring in our food and didn’t realize that she forgot for about 30 minutes. She also did not keep our beverages full.

    Food was just ok… It used to be much better. Millies used to have amazing shrimp and grits and an amazing dish with pulled pork. Their shrimp and grits is now just ok with a weird curry flavor now (coming from someone who LOVES curry) and the pork dish was nowhere to be found. Server also never checked in or asked how our food was. All in all, I used to crave coming here and that will not be the case anymore…

    This small, out of the way diner is mind-blowingly good. I ordered a breakfast meal, their Hollandaise was spectacular, as was their potatoes and the rest of what I ordered. The service was patient, efficient, helpful and even acted like my jokes were funny.

    I plan on exploring every facet of their menu.

    Hands down the best corned beef hash I’ve had this side of the Mississippi.

    About 5years ago when a waiter at Millies first recommended this hash, he insisted it would be the best hash I’ve ever had and will have in town. I moved from Richmond VA to Washington DC area that year. I went back there yesterday (5+yrs) later and made sure to confirm to the waitress that I had traveled far and wide and haven’t had hash quite like Millies 😆.

    This is a fun little diner that I had never been to hidden away in the heart of Richmond! It’s a small place so you’re going to need reservations so don’t expect to just pop in on a weekend for brunch. I had a super decadent egg and crab meat burrito that was so very delicious! My wife had a shrimp and Brie salad that she loved. It was a small and charming location that you definitely ought to go and try! It is a definite Richmond must visit!

    Had a “Castro’s Mess” and it is possibly the best Omlet I’ve had in my entire life

  219. M. Ross 2020/11

    One of the lovely quaint places I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing during one of my road trips. This little established eatery is delightful. The food was interesting – a bit of curry here, a touch of spicy there will definitely have your taste buds jumping. Have an Evil Knevil but make sure you eat 1st & drink 2nd – cause boy was I tipsy. The wonderful servers and the owner Paul made the experience A1. That’s what happens when you’re in the business for 30 odd years. Tell Paul that Millie from NY said Hi when you drop by

  220. Christopher Collins 2020/11

    Had the breakfast enchilada, potatoes were incredible, filling was okay, but also wrapped in a store bought tomato tortilla and not toasted or fried?

  221. Luki 2020/11

    This was the first time I went to Millie’s Diner.
    Let’s start by saying this meal plus one glass of orange juice was $20
    This was a avocado tomato and cheddar omelet.
    Hash browns are extremely spicy.
    And the lemonade soda extremely tart.
    Not a good mixture.

    There was nice music, good atmosphere, and the customer service is great.

    Thou, I’m not quite sure if I’ll ever go back.
    Mainly due to the costs.

    My partner chose not to eat because the meals were all over $10 a piece.

    Example scrambled eggs and lobster $14 a plate.
    Sounds good. But na…!

    Gus’s lemonade soda was not a fan favorite of mine…
    I’ll pass on that if I ever do go back..

  223. Bryan Rule 2020/10

    Great rustic/funky/authentic diner atmosphere. The food was delicious and pricing for both eats and their big selection of beverages was very reasonable. My meatloaf omelette special was the quintesence of innovative comfort food.

    Great atmosphere, great playlist, friendly service, generous and indulgent brunch fairy.

  228. Autumn Murphy 2020/07

    This place is definitely more of a brunch and lunch spot, than breakfast. No pancakes or waffles on the menu. Friendly staff and great precautions with Covid.

  229. Steven K 2020/07

    Very slow service. The restaurant is so cramped that people were constantly bumping us and our table. Limited menu with few vegetarian options and no substitutions. The food was fine but not worth the downsides.

  230. Chue Xiong 2020/06

    First diner/brunch place that came on my search when I was in town. Don’t underestimate the size and looks of this place. This small little joint understands what flavors and seasonings are! The potatoes are amazing! I would have order another plate of it if I wasn’t already overweight. Definitely on my list of top notch brunch restaurants.

  231. Kevin Luke 2020/06

    Come on, Millie’s has been a staple of Richmond for over 20 years at least. have been multiple times. Great food, made to order and always fresh. Like that the menu changes, depending on what they are getting fresh that week. The only really downfall that I can see is sometimes parking downtown and with a small cooking area, if they are busy food can take a little longer, but usually well worth the wait. Thanks for good food through the years!

    We were for team lunch and all of em like this small little cozy place tucked at end. Been here several times but for team it was mostly first for most of em. Food is really good, have to hit the place on time to avoid rush. They have street parking and also small dedicated parking right opposite over the hill adjacent to the gas station. I recommend this one and would go back soon.

    I’d say most Millie’s brunch customers don’t show up while on a run from the fan to Stone Brewing, but just like all my other visits in the past this one didn’t disappoint. We shared the Devil’s Mess and kept going.

  238. laura sokol 2020/03

    The more I come in here, the less I like it. They make some great brunch dishes but there’s always something lacking in flavor. I guess I should just stick to the corned beef hash which is by far the best dish. The bloody Mary’s have always been watered down and bland.

  239. Andre J. Blakely 2020/02

    Awesome place! Their brunch specials are the best!

  240. I.E. Xam 2020/02

    I had a corned beef sandwich with guyere cheese and braised cabbage. It was pretty good. Very good service.

    I love the Angus burger, it was so juicy and cooked exactly how I wanted it. Definitely going there again.

  242. Jane 2020/01

    Finally stopped by Millie’s on a whim without thinking to look up the menu first, and that was a mistake. I have to say that we didn’t really understand why all the hype exists. Pros: we were seated immediately on a Saturday morning, and our food came out really quickly. Major con: we found the menu to be lacking in variety. There are no sweet options like pancakes, waffles, or French toast, which is very odd for a diner serving brunch. We were also told that we couldn’t make modifications to any of the specials. We couldn’t even ask for an ingredient to be left off. Come on…it’s 2020! Everyone has some kind of dietary restriction. We got the corned beef hash and it was good, but it was more of a stew type dish and didn’t really hit the spot for breakfast/brunch. I was also brought black coffee (the server didn’t ask about cream and sugar when I ordered, quickly left before I could request cream, and then it took me several minutes to flag her down… she then seemed surprised by my request). I think she was expecting me to use a nearly-empty pot of cream that had been left on the table by the last diners. Overall, the experience was okay, but I can think of several places in Richmond to get a better brunch for the same prices or less. If you like the particular type of dish they’re serving up, you will enjoy, but if you want the classic diner breakfast options, you may want to go elsewhere!

  243. Melissa Nelson 2019/12

  244. Roberto Tropiano 2019/12

So if your Richmond visiting and looking for a wonderful place for breakfast I would definitely recommend going to millie’s you will be amazed.

  254. Celia Jones 2019/10

    No wonder why this place is hard to squeeze into, but don’t fret. Grab a drink from their brunch menu cause that will make waiting worth your while. This place is small but every corner is filled with great people and amazing food. I had the pleasure of trying the Devil’s Mess and my wait was minimal since I ate at the bar. I also had a glass of the Evil Knievel, perfect combination. The service was rapid and friendly. I would definitely return for more

  258. Michael Hopkins 2019/09

    Millie’s is a Richmond brunch staple. If you go for brunch prepare for a bit of a wait, but enjoy a drink on the patio. It’s a cozy space with an old school dinner feel. The entreés are always great, I had the corned beef hash from the standard brunch menu and my fiancée had a housemade beer bratwurst that was on special. Both are highly recommended.

  264. Carl Lynn 2019/08

    Millie’s has the heart and soul of a diner. I came in shortly after opening, to a bustling kitchen and restaurant. The two cooks are right up front, and as a solo traveler, I was sat at the bar. The staff and customers were so friendly, and the place was full of life. Every time a customer added a tip to their basket, they would ring their bell and say “thank you for tipping your cooks”. My omelette was sooooo DELICIOUS, and the home fries were just as good. Their setup is small, and apparently Millie’s has been around for 30 years. If you’re looking for a filling meal, you can’t beat their omelettes, brimmed with fillings. There’s not much space to move around, but everyone is welcoming and makes you feel at home. Highly recommend!

  265. Ashley Cornfield 2019/08

  270. skullhard74 2019/07

    Breakfast off the chain! This is good stuff. I have a food allergy and they tweaked my order a bit to accommodate that for me. That tells you that they are there to please the customer and care about doing so. I loved the atmosphere of the historic building they are located in. Next time I get a chance I will return. No complaints here.

  271. Nadir Siddiqui 2019/07

    Very quirky brunch spot with delicious food, big portions, and great service! We had the corned beef hash, the huevos rancheros, and the eggs Benedict which were all fantastic, but the standout was the special – shrimp and grits!

My wife got the eggs Benny which was really good. I would highly recommend this place. It’s a little small so seating could take some time. We showed up with our whole party and got seated right away. The service was good as well. If you’re in the area and looking for a great brunch spot check this place out!

    The food I ordered was ok. My main gripe was that they kept my loose change! I paid with cash, expected say $2.21 back, but they kept the 21 cent without explanation! I didn’t want to make a scene about loose change but this is stealing! I did not tip the waitress because of this. How much extra do you guys make a day keeping people’s change?? How do you explain your surplus to auditors?! Isn’t this reportable to the BBB??
    If you pay with cash, make sure Millie’s Diner gives you your change *completely*.

  276. Willem Koenders 2019/07

    We had brunch here. I had Devil’s Mess, which was delicious. Coffee was good, and quickly refilled. The waitress was a bit rough though, “sorry, we don’t take peppers out, and steak is always medium cooked here.” Very reasonably priced.

  277. Matthew Lee 2019/07

    The devil’s mess is totally worth the trip here! Delicious and savory, combining curry, eggs, sausage, peppers and more in a way that makes a smooth but sharp plate of food! It’s hard to order anything else when I know that’s on the menu! Highly recommended, but you better be prepared to wait on the weekends. The line can be quite long, but the flavors will bring you back again and again!

    This place was wonderful. I really enjoyed the open kitchen vibe and the prompt friendly service. We each had a Mess and they were all great.

    Going in the place was PACKED, always good news for a new restaurant. I got the Cuban mess to-go. What a mess it was (messy means good, take notes). Definitely will go back. Only con I have is when going in it can be very unorganized. Stood there for a handful of minutes just to speak to someone. But once I did, I was out and on my way. Check them out if you live in the bottom, and you want something good to eat.

    Walked in. Sat at bar for lunch and drinks about 1230. Waitress asked if were seated there….we were then asked to get up, that bar seats were treated as tables. Advised it would be 20 minute wait. We left.
    No sign, no hostess, no instructions.

  296. Katie Shedden 2019/04

    I wish I had better pictures of their food to share to do it justice! I most recently visited Millie’s on New Year’s Day and brought my parents because I wanted to show them the best brunch in Richmond. Every time I come in, the food and service is consistently exceptional. Every time I come in, I try something new and I am never disappointed. All waitstaff are genuinely friendly and make sure you feel attended to (but not overly), even when it’s very busy. My mom commented that it was the best service she’s had in over a decade (and she meant it!). The environment is cozy and quirky, and whenever I go in I feel like I’ve been transported to a diner back in time.

    I couldn’t recommend Millie’s more! Thank you for creating such a great experience!

    Been going nearly every week for a couple months now. The Sunday brunch is probably the best in Richmond, and it’s definitely worth the inevitable wait. You can ask for coffee while you wait too! If you want to try what Millie’s is all about, get the Devil’s Mess.

    The drinks are great! (Makes the wait for a table go by in no time ) the food is consistently great!! Also so good is LULU’s and the new coffee cafe by Lulus. I believe all owned and operated by same group. I love that this is a locally owned and operated businesses that I actually enjoy & want to patron.

  314. Anisha 2019/02

    Never disappointed…The atmosphere, servers, and food are all SUPERB!

  315. Rick Tringali 2019/02

    This ain’t no diner but if you want a first class meal and service this is for you. NYC vibe,highly recommended!

  316. Yuri Kim 2019/02

    Came here by a coworker’s recommendation and the food was good but not amazing. Also it was kind of hard to breathe in there because of all the smoke and spices that were floating in the air.

  317. Surbhi Kanotra 2019/02

    This is my all time favorite brunch place in Richmond. I always bring friends here the first time they visit Richmond. All their food is wonderful and highly recommended. The weekend brunch wait time can be an hour plus. So get here when they first open or closer to closing time to avoid the wait time.

  318. Nav Eren 2019/01

    Pretty little restaurant, the chefs and servers are personable.
    Very cool to watch a chef cook your dinner right in the room with you!

  319. Abigail Thompson 2019/01

    Always the best for Sunday comfort food. Love seeing the same servers there, especially when they recognize you after years.

  320. Brad Taylor 2019/01

    Sat at the bar at 10am, waited 45 min with no acknowledgement. It was only myself & another patron at the bar. Yes, the restaurant was busy. But, the 2 servers at the bar were mostly in their own conversation & didn’t offer anything to drink. Without a doubt the food here is amazing, but the service was very lacking today.

  321. Matt Montero 2019/01

    Good food, can get crowded, but worth visiting. Doesn’t do egg whites, not a problem for me, just something to know.

  322. Rachel Grace 2019/01

    Food was good, not great. Felt overpriced for the quality I received. My husband and I ordered an iced and a hot coffee, both were undrinkable because it was so bad.

    Always delicious! The devils mess is always worth the wait.

    This place is amazing the service was great the people are very friendly and the Shrimp and Grits are my favorite.

  327. Rox 2018/12

    The food was a step above your usual diner. They had duck a l’orange as one of the brunch specials and my husband couldn’t stop talking about how perfectly cooked it was. Good portion sizes and you will not leave hungry! Only regret is that we didn’t find it sooner.

  328. Aaron Childers 2018/12

    THE hipster brunch spot, in a hipster brunching town. Long wait is the standard, food is good, but I honestly question if it is so good to wait an hour for a seat on Sunday morning. That being said, half hour wait is the standard time to wait for a seat buying brunch hours, so don’t show up hungry, unless you like Bloodies. Location is great, and if you want a menu with non-standard fair that isn’t super expensive this is it. Service is good, and there are some super fine women working here.

    If you’re up for a little road trip buckle up and head on down to Millie’s Dinner. At first I thought oh this place is tiny, but I quickly realized why they are the hottest place in town. First of all the waitress picked two amazing dishes. I had grits and shrimp. OMG I never had grits before, but these cheese grits melted in your mouth added with a little spicy shrimp….mmm mmmm good.

    my favorite brunch place in Richmond! The food is spectacular, the drinks are plentiful, and most of all, the wait is worth it – craving their Bloody Mary now!

    I had higher hopes for the food based on previous reviews/word of mouth. Staff was friendly though!

    Excellent food. Excessive wait times on weekends but well worth it.

    Went because of all the good reviews. It was ok, not as great as people made it out to be. The staff was awesome even with the constant crowd the food was just ok, I’ve had better at hotel resturatns that have chef stations like build your own omelette. I didn’t find the food over spiced like some mentioned. Aside from the great staff it was underwhelming.

  339. Brandon Goad 2018/10

    Great brunch, but you will wait as place stays busy

  340. Greg K 2018/10

    Always amazing. No wait this time. Typically you can expect to wait at least 20 minutes for a table. Found parking right out front too. Perfect.

  341. Mager Truong 2018/10

    30 minute wait but absolutely worth it! Known for their “mess” meals and the presentation lives up to its name. The ambiance, heartiness and deserts are pleasing; even more when shared with friends.
    Will return and recommend.

  342. Jean Reading 2018/10

    Quaint little spot to enjoy brunch. Aside from feeling like the staff is trying to push you out the minute you sit down, the food wasn’t bad and the atmosphere is chill yet friendly. Prepare for a wait for brunch, but they serve you drinks while you wait, so you can’t beat that.

  343. Kevin Gederman 2018/10

    The best brunch food you can find in Richmond. Hands Down!!

  344. heather riley 2018/10

    Entres unexpectedly pricey but delishous! Service was good but the place was pretty empty when we were there. Oh, and make reservations or you HAVE to sit by bar, which isn’t bad just found it odd the lady said, “you have to sit here” after tell it her we had no reservations…still loved it

  345. Olivia Cummins 2018/09

    A cacophony of crisp cruciferous cuisine culminating in a climax of classic crustacean creations. Cannot continue…comatose from carbs.

  346. Clarence Ross 2018/09

    The diner is quaint. A small setup restaurant which gives a comfy feel once you’re able to get a seat. The food is good and brunch is the time I prefer when going. The service is good, never had a complaint!

    Visiting from out of town and a local friend recommended Millie’s. We left full and happy. Great options and flavors. My wife has many food allergies and they were very accommodating. We were extremely impressed.

  348. E. 2018/09

    My husband and I went to dinner at Millie’s with a group and found it to be very disappointing. The ceviche was awful (fishy) and the main course was overcooked. As a couple who used to love Millie’s, we found our experience to be disappointing. To make matters worse, our waiter was rude and assumed the role of a sassy (ill mannered) comedian. We won’t be back.

  349. Alexander Sika 2018/09

    Best brunch spot in town. Consistently has amazing food. This place is always packed… for good reason. Wait staff is great and the cooks are awesome.

    Always a treat! So many surprising meals out of such a small kitchen. Knowledgeable, pleasant servers. We had a great experience

  354. Terry LaShawn (LTLKNGKONG) 2018/08

    Review strictly based off the food. The dishes just weren’t for me. I wished they offered normal brunch dishes for those who don’t like the hearty, spicy, salty, runny meals covered in siracha early in the AM. I heard so much about this place, but when I tasted this food it’s the first time in my life I gagged without a hangover. I was more disappointed at the meal choice after waiting 50 minutes for a table. The staff was nice, atmosphere design confusing, but clean and welcoming.

  355. Liz Curtin- Guilfoyle 2018/08

    Casual gourmet eclectic dining, with the best bloody Mary’s until seated- Saturday & Sunday brunch always a wait, well worth it!

  356. Maria A 2018/08

    I liked the food (unique menu) and the atmosphere is def charming but my problem is that it’s too small (or 2 many ppl go there now) and 4 me the long wait just isn’t worth it.

    Great place for brunch! Love the home fries / potatoes! Big portions, must ask for the toast now, and limited availability to modify your dish.

    Hint – go on Saturday, super easy to get in. If going on Sunday, get there at least 30 mins before opening! They serve you mimosas while you wait though!!

    My fiance and I came here for brunch this morning. He got the paella special and I got the crab and egg enchilada. Mine was delicious, but the chicken leg in the paella was raw. We told the waitress, and she was polite, but just brought it out later on the same plate just heated up a bit. It was treated like he ordered a steak medium and got medium rare. Manager never came over and nothing was comped. Serving raw chicken is bad, but acting like it’s no big deal is unforgivable. We loved this place, but we won’t be going back because of their lax food safety standards.

  360. john warrick 2018/06

    A brunch institution. Lots of eclectic and delicious options. Friendly people and a funky dining room make for a great experience.

    Had the spam sammie and a side of grits. So delish. Grits an especial treat. Place is hopping for brunch but staff handles the crowds very efficiently.

  364. Elisabeth Clark 2018/06

    It’s been some time since I have been, but when I went everything we ordered was very delicious! I can’t remember the name in particular, but this chicken dish I ordered was top notch. We sat at the bar because it was a bit crowded, but that was our choice to go during a really busy time. Good place to go for dinner!

  365. Xxx Xxx 2018/05

    The food was obviously awesome, but so cramped….like would it kill you to drop two tables and have some breathing room….it was like eating breakfast with 20 strangers

  366. Terri Wulf 2018/05

    If you want bacon and eggs don’t come here but if you want delectable options you will love this place for breakfast. My husband just wanted bacon and eggs so he had to order from the children’s menu. So funny, he missed out.

  367. Brad Kokoski 2018/05

    Popular and small, so waiting is not uncommon – but so worth it! Homemade bloody Mary mix with horseradish is just the right amount of spice. Famous hash brown potatoes with every meal, seasoned with cumin, which I love. Quick and cordial service. You’ll sit elbow to elbow with any character you can imagine, but the common thread amongst us all is a love of a great diner and a creative, well-executed menu. Check the menu yourself, it’s as awesome as it sounds. Brunch menu Saturday and Sunday.

    DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS DUMP… Christina, waitress taking my call for 5 people for s 9pm reservation… Abruptly hung up on me stating “No one” can come here after 9:00pm. I called back manager “Daria” whon was also as “RUDE” as her counterpart Christina, the waitress. The food is sparse, chef’s have EXPERIENCE WORKING AT FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS. AWFUL…..

    VA omelette was delicious! They were out of the one thing that multiple people at our table were wanting to eat. Kind of a bummer. The potatoes had a very strong cumin smell. Staff was great.

    Millie’s is a small space so there is usually a wait but they do take reservations for large parties. This is the second year we’ve gone to Millie’s the day before Thanksgiving and they’re very accommodating. We had 14-20 people each time and we had very quick and friendly service.

    Everything was delicious but definitely try something from their daily special menu.

    Noisey loud crowed, I guess all the things that most people like about a small place to eat. If you need to make substitutions or have dietary restriction, not the place to go. If you like drinking alcohol with breakfast then Millie’s is for you.

  400. Charlatte Mueller 2018/01

    I was coming from riding my bike on the trail and stopped by this place out of complete random. I read the name Millies diner and was expecting the traditional eggs, bacon, pancakes. Good but simple stuff. Totally, not the case at the diner! I was completely blown away by what I ordered. They even let me take away my bread from my dish , because I’m that difficult no carb annoying person that always asks to modify dishes. The food had such a melody of flavors that just made you want to savor every bite and eat at a turtle pace. Now, the decor and atmosphere was so RVA. I couldn’t get enough of it. I kept looking around like a tourist. I was also sitting at the bar and there was a cook with a septum ring that was absolutely KILLING IT on the grill. I absolutely loved this place and so glad the fate of my bike ride ended me up there. These are the spots that make RVA so damn unique and great. Awesome job guys!!

    After months of hearing great things about Millie’s, my wife and I finally went today for the first time. From the moment we walked in, I knew it wouldn’t be my last. First thing we saw were amazing tricks from the cook in the entrance. His charisma and skills were fascinating. The owner was an absolute pleasure to interact with; the entire staff was great, friendly and so fun. We tried their famous devils mess, and an eggs Benedict with flank steak.. WHAT DELICIOUS CHOICES THEY WERE!! This is truly a local business who needs to grow big! They are amazing!!!!

    Way too pricey lunch, bar-maid actually argued with us when we said we’d like to move to a table in a warmer quieter place in the restaurant, that was weird, there were plenty of tables… sad too because we can walk to Millies from our house, but we don’t, now we remember why

  409. tammy olszewski 2017/12

    We’ve been hearing how great this place was, for years. Very disappointed. My sister and brother in law here for a short visit. So we thought we would bring them here for a nice lunch.

    Poor quality over spiced food. One menu for four people. The waitress was eating at the bar when we walked in. She pointed to where she wanted us to sit. Never checked on our meal. No thanks for coming in.

    Maybe an off day.

  410. Lisa 2017/12

    This place was very busy and there was a waiting list 1/2 hr – 45 mins.

    One of the best places for brunch in Richmond. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. First come first serve and gets packed on the weekends. Recommend being there right when the restaurant opens to ensure you get a table right away.

  415. Walt Kaplan 2017/10

    Excellent meal and a great value to boot. Just be prepared for a generous helping of spice. In my opinion it’s nothing overwhelming but my wife has a very low tolerance and it was too much for her. I got the Devils mess and thought it was very filling and delicious. My daughter had the burger which was surprisingly satisfying. Wife had the salmon which was good but the Swiss chard and spicy hash browns weren’t to her liking. I however, will definitely consider returning again and again. Wife will just have to eat ahead of time 🙂

    This place gets a lot of hype. My dish was absolutely delicious, but my date’s meatloaf was overly salty. I’m guessing this was a one-off, but couldn’t give them 5 stars.

    Fantastic food and atmosphere. Best service in Richmond.

  419. Chris Griffin 2017/09

    We had not been here in a while so decided to have a belated anniversary dinner here. Service was very professional – right tempo and attentiveness. Though he gave a bit of an eye-roll when my wife asked if they could tone down spiciness of the spicy shrimp a bit. In a made-to-order kitchen, this should not be unreasonable. Her chilled melon soup was “meh” for its lack of flavor.
    My papaya salad was fresh and inventive, but the dressing was EXCESSIVELY salty. My char was overcooked and it too was laden with salt. Seeing a couple of previous reviews indicates this is not the first time they were generous with the sodium.
    Very disappointing experience overall.

    Today is my 1 year wedding anniversary and my husband and I decided to try a new place for breakfast. We waited 20 minutes to be seated and I assume a guy that came in is friends of the host because he was seated before us. The food look good but the service was bad. Will never return to a place that would treat their customers who are already waiting this way.

    This place lived up to the hype! The food was absolutely wonderful and I was very pleased with the service. Everyone was friendly here and accommodating. They are known for their frittatas or open faced omelettes. I had the Devil’s Mess and it was one of the best meals I’ve had in the city. They like their spicy food so be prepared for that! The place is small so you will most likely have a wait during peak hours. It’s worth the wait though. You won’t be disappointed. I didn’t get to try the dessert, but the options looked delicious and they are made fresh! I highly recommend for tourists and anyone else that’s never been.

    Very satisfied. I know I was the guy coming in right before closing time this afternoon, but after seeing this place on the the cooking channel the other day I had to come there and eat. Thank all of you for your patience.

    Get the angus half pound burger. Hands down the best medium burger I’ve ever had in my life. I’ve been having burgers my entire life, think of me as Ron Swanson and this is an amazing burger.

  434. Donna LaBree 2017/06

    Service was awful.Food was not hot when delivered to the table. Had to ask for tea 4 times and never got the coffee ordered. Soup was lukewarm but very tasty! Spicy shrimp was delicious! If you can get past the poor service you may want to try Millie’s for the food.

    Eaten here for brunch a couple times – the menu items are very original for most brunch spots in the city, but they also cost nearly twice as much as other restaurants. It’s definitely worth the visit if you’ve never been, but it’s too expensive and crowded to ever make for a regular brunch spot for most people.

  436. Sean M 2017/05

    A bit loud, especially if you’re hungover but the food is awesome and so are the waiters. Keep in mind that it does get very busy during peak hours, however they’ll get you drink while waiting.

  437. Dont Worry 2017/05

    They are nasty have roaches crawling all around the back of the diner. It do not be clean and you all are eating roach droppings in your food. All they do is drink even the owner and he’s rude don’t respect his customers and workers. It’s just too many problems in there an inspection needs to go down so it can be closed down for good. Not good to eat there….

  438. Beverly Lopez 2017/05

    A group of five had lunch here in late February. It’s a little small, as it was a pharmacy in earlier days, but the service was quick-moving, and we didn’t have to wait. Great decor – tin ceiling and old-timey booths lend to the fun atmosphere. Friendly service, good-sized portions, reasonably priced.

  439. Kalvin Gill 2017/04

    Great service. Great food! Had the best time, felt like home. Will definitely come back.

    Excellent father’s day dinner for my pops!! Their cornbread was the best I’ve ever had, hands down.

    Millies is amazing it is a must visit if you are ever in the Richmond area from the open kitchen, the staff to the amazing food this place is the embodiment of a Diamond in the rough we ate her for brunch and came back for dinner ….AMAZING

  443. Shanniece Jones 2017/03

    The food and drinks were good, just too many ants and nets to really enjoy everything. The server was friendly and made great recommendations. The overall experience was good.

  444. Derek Mueller 2017/03

    They can take a turkey sandwich and roasted potatoes for lunch and make it the best you’ve ever had.

  445. Amanda Strassner Merrill 2017/03

    If you love curry and vegetables with your eggs and potatoes (which I do) you’ll be back again and again for a completely unique brunch experience.

  446. Stacy Litchford 2017/03

    Small but contemporary space. Food was good. Fried green tomato sandwich is well done.

  447. Becky Hapeman 2017/03

    Nice staff, service is acceptable, & you will take the smell of food with you when you leave. Food is delicious yet limited to what they do well. Be prepared to have your whole party ready to seat or wait until they have all arrived. If you wait, you’ll be offered a beverage.

  448. Mrmarginofsafety 2017/02

    Great service, and generous portions. Everyone works as a team keeping customers happy

  449. louise bryant 2017/02

    Fantastic food! Expensive but worth the cost. Seven courses.

  450. Susan Aivatzidis 2017/02

    If ANTIFA alt -left politics and sitting during the national anthem are your thing. Then comrade you will enjoy the rantings of the owner’s son , chef , and spoiled bourgeois Socialist Matt Byrum! Have a look at his social media before you give this restaurant your patronage.

  451. Jason Aldrich 2017/02

    High class diner atmosphere. Super delicious food prepared in front of house. Fancy-style dating or graduation dinner. The shrimp though. . .

  452. Jericka Knox 2017/02

    The food, atmosphere, and service was awesome. Can’t ask for anything more.

    One of the best brunch spots in RVA. The atmosphere, people and food were off the charts! Definitely going back!

  454. Portia Hoskins 2017/01

    So a friend and I came from NC and I know for sure I will definitely be back! Today I tried one of thre manager’s specials and I chose the Black and Bleu! Let me just tell you it was AMAZING!! Literally the best thing I’ve ever eaten!!… Seasoned to perfection! I can understand why it was so busy there, it was truly worth the wait!!!

  455. White Hat 2017/01

    It’s expensive, and you don’t get a lot of food. The quantities for the main entree and the sides are very small. The duck was very fatty. Good overall taste and presentation. After my meal here I was still hungry and bought a chicken dinner from across the street. It’s neat to watch them cook it all in front of you. With bigger portions and and other small improvements, this place could be great. Not recommend for take out, to go.

  456. Kismiya Sapp 2017/01

    The cooks do not wear gloves. Cooks were touching raw meat and then cooked meat without washing their hands.

  457. William Ludwig 2016/12

    Food is always good space is kinda tight for more than 6

  458. Adrienne Gainer 2016/12

    Nice retro digs and pretty tasty although very limited menu.

  459. Michelle San Juan-Quinn 2016/12

    Great food and great service!! Don’t forget to tip the cooks too

    Scallops grilled to perfection. OMG why would you eat anywhere else in Richmond?

  461. Lashonda Diggs 2016/12

    All I can say is, AWESOME ALL AROUND, food was great, nice drinks, friendly waitresses s and LOVED THE MUSIC🤗🤗 …

  462. craig fields 2016/12

    Food was excellent, fresh, I had devil’s scramble, spicy sausage, green peppers,onions, curry and white cheddar. It was fantastic been thinking about it for a week now. Small place but they do a good job!!!

  463. Haoxuan Xu 2016/12

    I didn’t have a great experience here. my eggs had egg shells in them. my potatoes were very saturated with black pepper. I also did not like the bloody mary. the staff are very nice, and the service is great. it has a nice atmosphere.

  464. Justin Pyktel 2016/12

    The BURGER!!! I can’t remember the last tine I had a burger that good, and the home fries… to die for

  465. Liz Spaetzel 2016/11

    The menu changes by the night and there is not a lot of options. Every time I have ate here the food and service has been fantastic. Tastes like a 5 star restaurant.

    Average dinner experience at best. We went on a Wednesday night, a wedding anniversary celebration, and did not have to wait. The food was good, even very good, but all of the rest of the dinner experience, combined with the overpriced menu just didn’t impress me. If you want an analogy, try Bowie’s coked up interview where he raves on the Pixies as the best band in America. Much like the Piixes, this place just didn’t live up to the hype and expectations. Disappointing. But not a complete write off. Lesson learned.

  468. Brian Desvignes 2016/10

    Great breakfast place probably the best in this area. I’ve come here with my family when I visit a few times now and am never disappointed. Just be prepared to wait because it’s a small place with limited seating and they get very busy, but it’s worth waiting for. They have a decent amount of seating outside to wait and you can grab a drink inside too so it’s not that bad. The food is made right in the front as you walk in so you can see everything being made which is kind of cool. The food itself is great and very large portions. You can’t go wrong with whatever you order I’ve never had a bad meal here.

  469. J Bri 2016/09

    Amazing breakfast, great friendly and quick service.

    Amazing brunch but there is usually a long wait due to popularity

  472. andy popovici 2016/08

    Great food, fast service. Definitely get there before you are hungry as wait times vary greatly.

  473. Suzy Gordon 2016/08

    I’ve had both brunch and dinner here. Brunch is the stuff of legends. GO. You will not be disappointed. Dinner was very good as well. A little overpriced but I did have the best seared duck breast OF MY LIFE. They also use good/local ingredients.

  474. David D Bigness Jr 2016/06

    One of the most popular brunch spots in Richmond and everyone knows it. So go early or late. Weekends… prepare to wait, a lot.

  475. Melvin Shearin II 2016/05

    Heard so much about this place and it’s a dump. The food was too salty and eggs weren’t cooked. You cannot deviate from menu which sucks. The wait staff took forever to take order and get the awful food. It’s highly overrated.

  476. Jason Rohrbach 2016/04

    Fantastic an absolute must when in Richmond. The eggs Benny and corn beef hash is out of this world

  477. Justin Wang 2016/04

    One of if not the best brunch places in all of Richmond. Make sure you order the devil’s mess. Amazing.

  478. Mistress Heather 2016/04

    Most spectacular breakfast I’ve ever had. Must do the lobster with soft eggs and the bloody mary…Best I’ve ever had for both of those. Just amazing worth waiting an hour food ever.

  479. Nicole Duimstra 2016/03

    The food is amazing! I went for brunch, the wait was a little long and the service was a little slow, but the foods just that good. They also serve you drinks while you wait which is amazing!

  480. William Berriel 2016/02

    Great breakfast food and great service. The vibe is retro weird and fun. They have outside seating, but we didn’t sit there since it’s right on a busy street.

  481. Elisabeth S 2016/01

    Best bloody Mary I’ve ever had. Great huevos rancheros, all their brunch is tops. Get there early or you’ll wait an hour.

  482. Richard Lilgeberg 2016/01

    This is probably my new favorite breakfast / brunch place in Richmond. The place was crowded but the service was great. Food came out very quickly and was very good. It was a little noisy with the crowd and music but it ended up feeling in place with the unique atmosphere. The chefs cook right up front. We sat at the bar so we got a good view of all the amazing food coming from behind the counter. I’m looking forward to try more. I got the Devil’s Mess which had eggs, hot Italian sausage, onions, peppers, and a light curry seasoning. The curry sounded odd but was really good. There was also some avocado on top. My wife got the shrimp and grits with a romesco sauce. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and will be coming back for more.

  483. Crystal Hayward 2016/01

    The absolute best brunch ever. What a great place, great people and fan-f*@#ingtastic food.

  484. Matt Van Thyne 2016/01

    Worth the wait! They had a menu and drinks for Valentine’s Day which was cool. We had the cajun mess and crab cake benedict. Would definitely get both again. Their bloody was not my favorite, but the Moscow mule was a great late morning cocktail. Cheers!

  485. Jeff 2015/12

    Well worth the wait. Once you’ve experienced Mille’s you’ll understand why it has made such a name for itself. One of my favorite spots in RVA for special occasions.

  486. Andrew Harris 2015/10

    Exquisite food — a little pricey, until you realize you easily get what you pay for. And I was actually stunned at how considerate the staff was — I came alone and the cook and server chatted with me like I was a… a kind of guest, not just a customer. The server even topped up my wine gratis.

    Dinner service has only one vegetarian option, but the brunch does not disappoint.

  487. Kiya Rivera 2015/10

    Heard about this diner from a friend who raved about it so my husband and I went with two of our friends. We waited about 50 minutes for a table during brunch (Sunday around 10:30am). We were seated and the waitress notified us right away she’d be with us shortly. About five minutes later she handed us brunch menus, explained the menu, and then took our beverage orders. Disappointed to find that they don’t serve any type of hotcakes/pancakes during brunch, but found something else. The food came, and I was disappointed. My food was so salty and the potatoes were almost burnt, and my poached egg was still raw, but whatever I’ll eat anything, but for the price, wait-time and reputation- VERY DISAPPOINTED! After finishing our meals, my friends and I were drinking our coffees and chatted for a while. When the waitress put our check down, we asked if she could split the check and she curtly said “No, I can do exact amounts, but not split checks). Okay, fine, a little rude, but we will make do. After we paid the bill, a different waitress (or manager, I’m not sure) started removing our dishes and made a snide remark – ” I’ll take these, to keep things moving”. That comment bothered me as well as a few others at our table, but fine. We chatted a while, (15-20 minutes our check gave us the check out time, and I checked the time we left), and then the other waitress came to tell us that “if we were finished, then we should chat on the patio, we remember how long we waited and we should be courteous and go elsewhere to talk”. The place seemed to think we should feel grateful for being there instead of the other way around. Not a happy customer, and will not be returning, or recommending to anyone.

  488. Austin Graff 2015/09

    I don’t know how you couldn’t give this place a 5 stars. It encompasses everything that Richmond has going for them: 1) Great atmosphere. 2) Great service, great people. 3) A little quirky. 4) Amazing southern food. Literally, the Devil’s Mess was the best omelette I’ve ever had. It’s not overwhelmingly egg flavored. It comes with a side of breakfast potatoes, which were the best I’ve ever had. You also get a basket of toast (that’s perfectly not too moist and not too crunchy) for free! Millie’s Diner is a MUST if you’re visiting or passing through Richmond.

  489. Ken Hopson 2015/05

    Hadn’t eaten at Millie’s in a few years, so on a whim, on the way home around 9pm, hungry, I stopped in for dinner.

    Oh my! I could have just stopped with the savory Pork Cheek Bolognese, but thankfully further indulged in some Spicy Thai Shrimp. A day later, my palette remains obliged to Chef Ian Robbins, a culinary artist extraordinaire. Our attendant, Jamie, was delightful and timely.

    Dining at Millie’s last night actually utilized all five of my senses, simultaneously. Outstanding!

  490. Lee Elberson 2015/03

    The food was amazing! They are great about telling you how long the wait is and providing drinks while you wait. The wait on Saturday morning was almost about 45 minutes but it was SOOOOOO worth it!

  491. R Sandy 2014/06

    You gotta go here! Amazing food in a funky setting! The Thai prawns were awesome.

  492. Joseph Fogerty 2014/05

    Been coming here since I moved to the RVA in 2011. Awesome food every time and phenomenal service! No reservations possible, and not recommended for a group larger than 6. Eclectic style, maybe even alternative. Great cultural experience for the area though so definitely check it out!

    8 July 2014
    Another great visit to this must see eats place! They have a new pos system and take dinner reservations too.

  493. Bill Moyer 2014/01

    Apparently a relatively new chef. Seriously, the Pork Chile Verde with eggs and potatoes over grits was one of the top 5 breakfasts I’ve ever had. Who would have thunk to out chile verde over grits? If I had had the time, I would have ordered another even though it was huge.

    Sitting at the counter expressing my amazement over the perfection of this dish, a couple of regulars both humored me saying, “what do you expect, you’re at Millie’s” as if I should be surprise that a diner could be this good.

    Its a bit far from the downtown, but absolutely worth the drive. Overall, the service was mixed. One waitress bent over backwards for me, another should have stayed home. The owner was willing to do anything to make customers happy.

  494. Ryan Hale 2013/12

    Very good food. 5 star rating. Recommend to everyone who has not eaten there.

  495. Serina Hammer 2013/12

    Great service, decent food. A little expensive for what you actually get. We dined at dinner – Mahi was just “okay”.

  496. Ann Mullikin 2013/06

    Great food! Had the swordfish and shrimp stew. Yum!

  497. Ella Lacks 2013/02

    Have eaten here several times but today was not a good experience. Ordered a dessert to go, was given the wrong dessert, then was told it was the right one when I could clearly see it wasn’t. Then was told they didn’t have the dessert I ordered. So becasue the tip left was not good enough, the manager came out of the door behind me and my friend to let us know that our tip was small and becasue we didn’t do anything about it, the manager went back in and got the tip left and returned it. Small tip now goes to NO tip. Maybe he was going to tip her for us.
    WOW! Poor customer service.

  498. Bryan Hargrave 2012/02

    Excellent. Amazing. I have never had a bad meal. The only downfall is how popular it is for the size. You may do some waiting. $15 for lunch and upwards of $40 for dinner.

  499. Arun Aravind 2010/12

    The food here is unique, their blending of east & west is great, hate the long lines on weekends though… but that proves this place is good.
