    Amazing food! Great service! And the Blue special was beyond worth it. I picked up fried chicken steak, sweet potato mash, and Brussels sprouts! Try it and tell me I’m wrong! Eric gave nothing less than stellar service! ❤️

    I love The Hill Cafe in historic Church Hill.

    I have eaten there many times while working on Historic Houses in Richmond. The food is always delicious, the service is always excellent and attentive, and the atmosphere is always cozy and friendly.

    I really like walking to this restaurant. There is never more than a few minutes wait on the busiest of days, so just sit at the bar and enjoy one of their great beers on tap.

    My favorite is the Blue Plate Specials which includes a wonderful meatloaf. I also enjoy the fried oysters – yum!

    Don’t miss this place next time you are visiting Church Hill. Can’t say enough food things.

    We came to visit this place and it was such a pleasant experience! As a party of two, we were able to snag one of the few tables open for Sunday around brunch. We had the breakfast burrito and fried green tomato benedict (side salad w radishes and quinao) they were SO tasty, for a reasonable price, with the icing of great service. I see why this place was packed!

    Cool place with great service but the food needs help. I ordered the burrito bowl with shrimp and it was devoid of any flavor. It was a huge pile of white rice (why not brown or spanish rice?) with some black beans and a dash of salsa and avocado slices. Zero flavor. It almost felt like something was left out. The waitstaff was efficient and the building is cool but the food was disappointing.

    This is a cute tiny restaurant in an established neighborhood. The service was great, the food was ok. I ordered the tomato and avocado cheese omelette. And it was literally just that- cold chopped tomatoes folded into the egg omelette with cheese and sliced avocado on top. No seasonings or sauce provided. I’ll try something different if I go back..

    -after a trip to the Jefferson Park to take sunset photos, we decided to stop by the Hill Cafe for dinner since it was close to the park. We enjoyed a delicious meal…shrimp and grits with a very generous amount of bacon pieces. My friend said they were the best ever. I ordered the fried oysters entree served with rice and sauteed spinach topped with garlic.I was impressed with the generous amount of perfectly breaded and fried oysters!!! No room for dessert but the offering was a nice variety. Will definitely be going back for a meal when I am in the area of Church Hill.

    I can not believe why people like this food? Went here based on reviews, but let me tell you.. must be made by people with no taste. I can’t tell if it was the lack of cooks in the back, but here’s something to read. The “smash burger” tasted so bland, the bread wasn’t even toasted or buttered, the meat tasted like burger king himself made it, the fries had no seasoning, expected after the sandwich. Now the meatloaf.. how can that be messed up? The sauce had no flavor, the meatloaf tasted like high school lunch lady served it, the Mac and cheese tasted like no cheese more Mac and all out of a warm up box from the store sold frozen. Also, be careful of the Spoon Bread… tasted like half corn bread and half raw egg, was it safe to eat? I do no recommend regardless over the overwhelming 5 stars with no taste. Service was great though.

    The food was good and the service was satisfactory. The overhead air conditioner leaked and dripped water on me during the meal. When I brought this to the attention of the servers they replied that they knew it leaked, but this is what happens when it’s hot and the air conditioner is running.
    For this reason I am rating 3 stars.

    Great little gem of a Church Hill establishment. Great brunch offerings, burgers are quality, drinks fabulous..try the dirty limeade for a refreshing summer cocktail. Benedict’s are traditional and not so traditional but all are wonderful 👍. Always enjoy Hill Cafe. Price point is very reasonable as well.

    Came in tonight for my sister’s birthday dinner:
    First I’ll start by saying great, super fast and attentive waitstaff, all the way through our experience. The bartender greeted me immediately, everyone was friendly, and the vibe was that of the local neighborhood bar. Our server had knowledge and recommendations. Happy Hour also seems like it’s worth checking out!
    First little blip happened with my drinks- they were out of mezcal for the mezcal negroni. Whatever, NBD, I ordered a martini instead. First one came out with a little gnat in it, but once I let our server know she took it back and had it remade for me very quickly. Other drinks were good though!
    For apps we got the cranberry and goat cheese salad (simple, huge, fresh, great champagne vinegarette dressing); the brussel sprouts (so good, you’ve gotta order these); and the spinach artichoke dip with pita (warm pita, the dip was awesome and looked like it was pureed? Very smooth and tasty).
    It gets a little dicey with the entrées we got: My sister wanted to get the filet mignon, but they were out (again, no big deal, restaurants run out of things over the weekend), so she got the chicken fried steak instead. The steak was fried a little too long, but was good, it could’ve used a bit more gravy, though. For sides she got green beans (fine, but much better when we added salt and dipped them in the lemon remoulade); and Mac and cheese, which also just fine. A little dry, but not bad. I ordered the fried oyster entrée, and the oysters were great, especially with the Meyer lemon remoulade. Seriously, I think the remoulade was my favorite part of the meal. The spinach and rice that came with it weren’t great however. Rice was a bit dried out, and just plain white rice, no sauce or seasoning. Same with the spinach, I expected some kind of garlic or onion or any kind of flavor but it was just plain, not-quite-fully cooked spinach. Again, much better with salt and the remoulade. My mom got the fried fish entrée with the braised collards and spoon bread. The fish was good, just classic fried white fish. The spoon bread was also good. Not the best, but definitely enjoyable. The collards unfortunately were super caramelized to the point of being burnt (like…. little crunchy bits on some parts.) Our server was super understanding and got a replacement of mashed potatoes for my mom instead. Which were…. unseasoned. Tasted like they just boiled and mashed ’em. Again, added salt, pepper, and butter to them to make them more enjoyable. We ended the meal with a lemon cake! It was very tasty with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream.

    Overall, fantastic service, cool vibe; but the food ranged from awful to mediocre to great. I would definitely revisit to give it another chance, and hopefully find the gems in the menu.

I am a huge clam chowder person, and the chowder here is just not good, for me. Everything else has been very good. I also really like the ranch dressing…they make it homemade and it’s yummy! The staff is friendly and helpful! The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming. It feels like a small comfy local spot. We will keep coming back for sure.

    Try the salmon entree – the salmon is crispy, the mashed potatoes are perfectly flavored and the whole dish is a buttery indulgence. Definitely not good for you, but so worth it. If you want to ditch your diet for dessert, try the bourbon pecan pie, served warm with whipped cream. Apart from the food, the small booths are super cozy and the servers are really fast and friendly.

    The Hill Cafe is a Church Hill staple. Literally, their blue plate specials are culinary staples. The food is cooked like it came from moms kitchen and tastes like it too. Bartenders are great and they always have local brews on tap. I’m partial to the fried green tomatoes with a side of pimento but there is plenty to choose from on the menu. I hardly ever have to wait for a table, but expect to see locals at the bar on weekday evenings. Love this place.

    I have been a resident in RVA Area for 17 years and when I moved three years ago I honest miss all there is to miss about RVA but, I always visit the CHURCH HILL CAFE. Unfortunately I was charged almost 100.00 for a party of 2 which we both had the MEATLOAF DINNER AND 1 APPETIZER. A Tea and A Coke. I have called the manager and spoke to him once and sent him a copy per his request. I have attempted to call him back for three weeks now and the VOICEMAIL IS FULL and now no one answers at all when I call. Does 12 on your side still do stories because I am sure that they want their money at a certain time so where is mine? Disappointment is sad and priceless…

    My go-to brunch spot. Their fried green tomato BLT with pimento cheese is absolutely fantastic.

    Best meatloaf I’ve ever had!!! Great bartender and wait staff! Everything was excellent. Great vibe and cool atmosphere!

    Went for lunch on a week day. The restaurant was not particularly busy. The food was overall very good – we had the hummus appetizer, which was smooth and not overly garlicky with warm pita points that were melt in your mouth good.

    The blue plate pork chops were different than expected – they were described as crispy but came out thin sliced grilled. As is often the case with thin pork it was overcooked and a bit underseasoned, but the braised collards were extremely tender and flavorful and the mac and cheese was delicious as well.

    The black bean burger was obviously house made or at least not your typical restaurant bean burger – soft and creamy, perhaps even too much so as opposed to the texture of meat, but the cheese twill and other toppings added a lot. The sweet potato fries were excellent as well.

    The Hill Sour cocktail was perfection – just the right amount of pucker factor and appropriately boozy. The Ginger Martini was tasty as well. The maple old fashioned lacked a distinct maple flavor and was basically just sweet and boozy, but still a good cocktail overall.

    Will definitely return to try other menu items.

    Incredible restaurant in Richmond, a nice hole-in-the-wall restaurant and bar, an awesome interior feel and a great selection of foods and drinks!

    All the dishes (got three entrees with my parents) were superb, well flavored and seasoned! Got the fried chicken (pictured), pork chops (not pictured) and eggplant (not pictured)

    Highly recommend for anyone

    Abbiamo bevuto un paio di birre io e la moglie, molto buone, di un birrificio locale .
    Abbiamo ordinato delle ostriche fritte da portare a casa per le figlie, rivelatesi molto buone.
    Molto bello l arredamento del locale.
    Gentile e preparato il personale.
    Simpatica la proprietaria.
    Non posso dare 5 stelle perché non ho cenato al suo interno.
    Comunque bravi.

    Never visited and decided to drop in after some business in the area. Very small, claustrophobic. No one greeted me. I looked for a free space and went to a tiny table in the back. The hostess/server wasn’t welcoming. I was told none of the specials were on the menu anymore that they’re doing a menu change. Ordered a glass of wine and it was overpriced of course for like 3 sips. The brussels sprouts I heard so much about were awful. Burnt, both hard and mushy, the oil/vinegar/spices weren’t right, 4 crumbs of cheese and it was a huge plate just for me. The hostess dropped the plate on the table with no word. The server was nice. The guy behind the bar who I guess is in charge seemed to be interested in mainly shooing off a gorgeous old orange cat. The cat was the coolest thing about it. Go to The Village instead 😉

    Quickly seated, attentive servers and great food… Who could ask for more? My husband got a smash burger (double meat) and I got a black bean burger (vegetarian), and we got mixed greens salads on the side. Both delicious, and with so many other choices, there’s something for everyone. We’ll be back for desserts… They sounded delicious, but on this day the burgers were big, and there was no room for anything else!

    Overall this place was ok. I had a burger and it was decent but nothing to brag about. It didnt have any flavor or anything that would make it stand out. The bartender (older male) was not very friendly which made the experience worse than it needed to be. The first beer I got tasted like the line hadn’t been cleaned and it was sour. I gave it back to the bartender and asked for another beer. He didn’t say anything or ask why I was returning it. I had to ask for every refill that I got. Basically I was treated like I didn’t exist but he spent plenty of time talking to his friends. I definitely wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to any of my friends.

    Every thing we ordered was just right and the service was excellent.

    The blue plate turkey special was especially tasty!

    There were a few… Quirky bar regulars who managed to make things a little awkward, but aside from that the meal is one I’d love to repeat!

    This place is one I will patronize again soon!

    My 1st time here was 5 star for food & service. So I brought family with me for the 2nd time & unfortunately the service made me embarrassed at my choice. The food was good once again, but instead of the polite lady from our 1st time we got a slim, dark-haired gentleman who was very short & cold to our table (although we watched him laugh and converse with others). One of us asked for a plate without 1 ingredient & he said they come on the side anyway, we said “ok go ahead & bring it *on the side* & another of us will eat it”. The food came with the topping ON it instead so it had to be returned due to food allergy. Instead of being apologetic he turned it around and curtly said she should’ve told him it was an allergy as if that excused not following directions (especially when it was him who reassured her it was ok to not modify the order in the 1st place). I still tipped him well because of my morals, but I honestly wish I didn’t have to because he was uncommonly rude to us specifically. I’ll be requesting a different server if I go back to get the good food again.

    It’s in a cute location and if that’s all you need for a great restaurant then this is your place. When we got there we were immediately seated. However, it took a few minutes for us to even get water. We weren’t presented menus and there wasn’t a QR code at our table. It wasn’t until I looked at the other table and realized they had the QR code that we were even able to look at a menu. Food was okay. My husband had French toast and I had pancakes nothing spectacular. Eggs and sausage/bacon are not included. Overall it was an okay experience you can bring your dog(s) & eat outside which is cool and the price isn’t too bad either.

    I was unfortunately very disappointed with my food. I had Salmon, mashed sweet potatoes and braised collards. Everything tasted like cafeteria packaged food. The Salmon color was almost white and dry in the inside. The collards looked and tasted like canned greens, definitely not fresh. Tasted like they just added vinegar. (Nothing wrong with canned greens if that’s what you like. But I expect fresh greens from this type of restaurant)The mashed sweet potatoes were only ok and the only thing I ate the most of. I will not return.

    On Mondays they reduce cost of the Blue Plate specials. I had meatloaf, Brussels sprouts and mash potatoes. Excellent and portions were perfect size. I will go back.

  241. Chris Rothgeb 2021/03

    One of our neighborhood favorites!
    We absolutely love this place. The food is always great, and for a very reasonable price. The cocktails are also very good. Try the meatloaf, it’s incredible.

  242. Rita Georgia 2021/03

    This little spot is amazing! We are defiantly making this our local spot!! Kim was an amazing server, who was attentive and made us feel at home. Thank you guys! From food to drinks, everything was delicious. We will be coming back and hopefully we can request Kim! You guys rock!

  243. Elizabeth Sexton 2021/02

    A very laid-back vibe matches the dimly lit, dark wood interior. Service was on point and the food was good. My fried green tomato BLT was nicely enhanced with the spicy aioli the server recommended and my dining partner’s burger was also well-executed and satisfying. Overall, nicely prepared classic American food.

    We had a great experience at The Hill Cafe, it’s a bland opening line I know but there isn’t a better way to start. My date ordered the Meatloaf and Lemonade and I went with the daily special, Chicken Stir Fry with Eggplant, Jalapeño pepper Vegetable Medley. Both hit the spot and were well prepared with care. The taste of the dishes both rocked our mouths beyond words. The ambiance was intimate and welcoming and our server was fantastic. 5 stars for RVA.

    Very classy place. I enjoyed the chicken lunch. Even with covid, they were well staffed and the waitress was attentive to my needs. I watched her wipe down tables seamlessly to make sure that the next guest was in a comfortable experience. she wasn’t overbearing but checked on me regularly. I was impressed with the chicken and the greens. Will be back.

    A little loud due to close seats.Very tasty food in a cozy place on Churchill!

  269. Sandra Blankenship 2020/10

    I was disappointed in the food I ordered. I ordered the fried chicken breast and the mac n cheese. The chicken was bland and the Mac n cheese was not homemade – not even close to homemade. I’ve had grocery store frozen mac n cheese that was better that what I was served. Do not order the mac n cheese or better yet, do not go here.

  270. Matt B 2020/10

    This place is great. The atmosphere was great. I visited during covid restrictions and was able to sit outside. The staff was attentive and the food selection is great. Theres something for everyone from fancy appetizers to sandwiches to full entrees. The wine and beer options were plentiful and all was priced decently. I’ll definitely come back here.

    Been here a lot and Ive had most of their sandwiches. Can’t complain about any of them and fries are good too. Beer selection could be updated more frequently. Overall I usually have a good experience here

  280. Josie H 2020/09

    This place is absolutely wonderful! We’ve been a couple times now and always order two appetizers Because it is so hard to choose between all of them. (Especially the fried green tomatoes) I really love the teriyaki bowl from here and my fiancé loved the steak, said it was some of the best steak he has ever had. The waitstaff is always prompt and friendly. You can’t go wrong with anything from this place. Definitely worth every penny!

  281. Marcus Taylor 2020/08

    I LOVE the fried oysters here. The best I’ve had on the east coast.

  282. Susan Tellier 2020/08

    Service at this place is fantastic. We didn’t want for anything. The food was delicious. Priced right.

  283. Steven Curry 2020/08

    Nice joint. A little more upscale that first thought. But overall its “smart casual” what ever that really means. Good food. Nice bar. Cozy little churchill joint.

    Great reviews on: social distancing, friendly staff, speed of service, quality of food, cleanliness, clean and convenient hand washing station, separate men and women restrooms, outdoor dining option, glass separators between booths. FOOD good reviews on: regular grits, collard greens, baked pork chops, crabcakes, sweet potato fries, shoestring fries, slow roasted roast, creamed spinach, roasted turkey breast, fried chicken, filet mignon. NOT SO GREAT review: mac and cheese ( odd flavor), cheese grits (odd flavor), fried oysters (xtra thick breading), italian cream cake (needed butter or sugar). PLENTY OF REASONS TO REVISIT and find another great dish! Those collards tasted like my grandma’s! Pork chops were smokey and delicious. REGULAR grits are delish. That filet mignon was crosby and charred on the outside 😳so good. I asked for medium rare but it was between that and medium. BUT.. after TASTING it with that charred buttery taste, I didn’t care that there wasn’t more red than pink. ILL BE BACK

    Lovely corner cafe in Churchill with indoor and outdoor dining. Socially distanced properly. Friendly, fast wait staff, good strong coffee
    Priced reasonably. Could sit there and listen to that old R&B music all day long! I could swear one of my Grandma’s was cooking in the kitchen! Collards tasted old fashioned good. Haven’t tasted better collards or grits or chops in a retaur, period. Delicious grits were thick and a hint of cheesy, smokey thick grilled pork chop had a little char on it. Mom said her crab cake was delish and they loved the sweet potato fries. A little over $50 for three meals. DEFINITELY going back to try more dishes. Only thing I didn’t see was the ladies room
    Next time I’ll check it out. If it’s clean with everything else it’s got going on, I’ll be a regular

    Came here twice in the past week while looking at properties in Church Hill. Food came out extremely fast for such a quality restaurant and was delicious. My wife got the fried green tomato BLT with pimento cheese with sweet potatoes fries and loved it. I had the redneck Benedict and it was also fantastic. We also got a burger to go which was excellent. Prices are very reasonable for quality of food. I will be coming back here for sure and would highly recommend.

  304. Allie Wine 2020/05

    Great neighborhood restaurant with friendly staff. The blue plate special deal on Monday nights can’t be beat – $7.95 for a main dish with two sides. I am a creature of habit and almost always get the meatloaf with mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts. I also recommend the brussels sprouts appetizer, fried chicken, hill burger, smoked turkey sandwich, chips, fries, ginger strawberry martini, and dirty limeade. I would not recommend the bowls or the mac and cheese – just sharing as these are two items which would usually be my go-to order based on the menu description, but they haven’t been as satisfying as the other options at The Hill Cafe for me!

  305. Vince Scott 2020/04

    I used to love this place but it’s been a long time since I last ate here, and the food was Okay, and the menu was different.

  312. Lewis B 2020/03

    My favorite menu item is the fried chicken dinner with two sides. I typically have the macaroni and cheese and collard greens. The meatloaf is always moist and the dessert menu rotates. Seating has been modified to accommodate for COVID-19 and cleaning is very thorough between patrons.

    Been to the Hill Cafe so many times staff know what beer I like to drink! This may be the last great local eatery, at the center of the universe in Church Hill. You can get a great burger or chicken wrap with a beer, or scale up to a really nice salmon dinner and wine with consistent quality.

  316. Paul Brookes 2020/03

    Even during or should I say Especially During non-peak hours things are great! The world slows down and the pace at the Hill is exactly what I need. The food is always wonderful, simple, clean fare that never disappoints. A great place to relax, reenergize and get my day on track. For those who have never been there…. Be prepared to wait during those “peak hours”. Totally worth it though if you’re looking to have a great time not being in a rush.

    Great corner pub and restaurant. The menus is varied enough that everyone can find something. The prices are reasonable. The service was great. They even acted like I was funny with some of my (generally) lame jokes. It has a great atmosphere, and seems to have a wide range of people.

    All-in-all. Definitely a place I want to go back to.

    I have been here several times and service and food quality are always consistent. It is a small place that does not take reservations except for larger groups so be aware. On a Tuesday night we were able to be seated very quickly. Monday night Blue Plate specials are a real bargain. I had shrimp and grits and cheesecake which were quite good. The décor fits in well with historic Church Hill buildings all around.

    Staying in the neighbourhood last night and had dinner plans rained out with the storm coming through. So we looked for somewhere still open after it passed and the Hill Cafe popped up,
    Great spot for a beer and late night food. The chicken fried steak was so good but the sides were where it’s at, the sprouts and collards were both amazing.

    I enjoy the food and the small, local atmosphere. I really enjoyed when we went for lunch, but on Mother’s day it was very crowded (expected) but the quality of the food seemed to suffer. I’ll still go back. Just not on a holiday 🙂

  344. Randal Johnson 2019/10

    Great service. The flavor of crab was a little light in the sandwich. Salads were OK. The braised collards had a little too much vinegar. Go off peak ad the place is small.

  345. Harrison Villhelm 2019/10

    Pricey but pretty on point. I have had some things overcooked, but generally its a great atmosphere and good food. Price in church hill is just a bit higher for whatever reason, but their happy hour specials can’t be beat in my opinion! They have happy hour dinner! Great place to enjoy a dinner date, cozy, and good bar too.

  346. Gary Varnum 2019/10

    Great food, coffee was fantastic. Had to wait even with a reservation, but it wasn’t the staff’s fault. A diner decided to camp out and read her Kindle for 30 minutes after her check was paid. She was seated at a small table right between the two tables they wanted to use for our party of eight. They finally asked her to move so they could seat us, very diplomatic in doing so. By the way, the Redneck Benedict and Fried Green Tomatoes Benedict are delicious and unique.

  347. rvagourmet 2019/10

  369. Sasha Nicole 2019/08

    We had a last minute party of 6 with 3 kids and they were extremely accommodating and seated us. The food was pretty good. The calamari was seasoned well, the pimiento cheese with the fried green tomatoes are fried crispy and the crab dip is good as well, but the crab cakes are very good. The Mac and cheese is an elevated box type taste and the greens are very vinegar heavy but worth having especially if you like that twang taste in greens. The spoonbread had a perfect consistency although I would have like it a tad sweeter. Everyone in the party enjoyed their food and it’s definitely worth a second visit.

  370. Catherine D. 2019/08

    My favorite neighborhood restaurant. Great food and awesome staff!

  371. Janet Mineva 2019/08

    Wow! Loved the poutine! Hefty amount of roast beef on top of thinly sliced potato strips. The fried chicken was incredibly well seasoned and the bbq sauce was zesty and bright! Honestly, the real star was the side of brussels sprouts. Hands down the best brussels sprouts. Ever. Period. Amazing! Service was friendly and spot on! The vibe is on the upper end of casual, very refreshing little spot.

    TL;DR, everything is amazing especially the brussels sprouts.

  372. David Anis 2019/08

    Pretty good. Definitely recommend the Tuesday night specials( ribs & coconut shrimp) The romalade sauce that comes with the coconut shrimp is amazing! Sweet and just the right amount of spice.

  387. Jacob Kelley 2019/06

    Great place to eat. Have yet to be disappointed with anything on their menu! It’s limited seating so make sure to call ahead.

  388. Kenny Rogers 2019/06

    AMAZING food, great price, awesome atmosphere! I’m in Richmond for one night from the Pittsburgh, PA area…..I’d recommend this establishment to ANYONE! If you only have time for one meal in Richmond….make it The Hill Cafe!

  389. Jason Champion 2019/06

    sometimes i get hungry and when i get hungry i want to eat and hill cafe has food and beer and i like those things

  401. Annie Radigan Overton 2019/05

    The Hill Cafe is always a good stand by, boasting Richmond’s charm, diverse culinary talents, and varied choice of beverages.
    The wine I selected was out of stock, but the bartender suggested another that went with the notes I described intrest in. I ordered the fried green tomato appetizer & it was delicious, as always!
    Love this neighborhood stand by!

    Always a great time here. Great for date nights and family dinners. We’re there so much most of the waitstaff already knows our order. Specials are always good as well. Can’t really go wrong with the fried oysters.

    Great lunch! We will definitely be going back on our next trip to Richmond!

  414. David Johnson 2019/04

    Great drinks, had some sort of old fashioned that was delicious. The only food I had was macaroni and cheese, but it was top notch mac and cheese.

  415. Maggie Kaderbek 2019/04

    I thought I loved it but I was wrong. No fresh fish and the cocktails are beyond subpar. It’s more like an upscale place for usual pub ppl. Just no logic and a messed up menu. Go to Dutch and Co for food and the Diner for your drinks.

  416. Clinton Lewis 2019/04

    Staff is friendly, ordered a chipotle chicken wrap and it was pretty good, one of the better I have had. Shoe string fries were good too. It gets busy for week day lunch but still had good service.

  422. K S 2019/03

    Enjoyed a late night burger. The seats at the bar are pretty close together, I was rubbing shoulders with the guy beside me… But was glad to have a seat. Beer seems slightly over priced.

  423. Brandy Washington 2019/03

    I love The Hill Cafe. This place is such a Church Hill staple, and my dad and I have loved going to this place for years.

    This last time I had the burrito bowl with tofu, & it was absolutely delicious. That guacamole is something to talk about, and we all know the portions are HUGE! Almost everyone else in my family ordered the fried oysters, and they raced about them the entire time. Love it!!

    Great local spot, cozy atmosphere and friendly staff. Blue plates are offered all day Monday and are all delicious options. Make this Richmond staple a must stop whenever you’re in Church Hill!

  429. rabia turner 2019/03

    The food was decent. I was here a few weeks ago with some friends and our waitress was the rudest person we’ve ever encountered. I ordered an item that had a fried egg. When I asked the waitress to get me a new egg as mine was to wet (not a big deal) she came back with a plate and said she would take the egg I had and have the re-fry it.( isn’t that unsanitary?) Anyway I asked her for a new egg not one I already touched she rolled her eyes and stomped off to go ask the cooks for a new egg.( is she cooking the food too?) when she brought back the new egg it was burnt and soaked in grease and she barely came to our table to refill our drinks. Besides that everyone else was pretty nice but from that experience I will not be returning.

  430. John Fulton 2019/03

    My wife and I have lunch here occasionally. We can only recall good experiences. Today was especially good. I had pork chops with collard greens and spoon bread. It was absolutely delicious. We had some family with us today and they were all impressed. One of us was a vegetarian and was pleased with the selection and the meal she chose. We will keep this place in our regular rotation.

    This is a very small but beloved corner neighborhood bar that has surprisingly good food. It’s quite loud when it’s full, which is often, but the lines at the door tell their own story.

  438. Marina Sharif 2019/02

    Fun environment and the food is pretty good too. They don’t have a lot of seating for how popular they are though so just be aware of that when planning day and time to go

  439. Mark Huffman 2019/02

    Still very good. We used to live in Church Hill and went a lot. Decided to make the drive for dinner tonight and was pleased to see the chicken salad BLT on the menu.

  440. Ixchael Bashore 2019/02

    Stumbled apon this place while house hunting in Church Hill. The food was awesome! They have a nice menu that includes stuff for vegetarians. The servers were all very welcoming and friendly, they gave us a good idea of the neighborhood and surrounding areas. 10/10 my roommates and I would recommend.

  441. ddan8862 2019/02

    I enjoyed my meal . I had their Calamari delish and plenty of sweet potatoes fries and chicken salad sandwich.

  442. M Catalla 2019/02

    Quaint neighborhood cafe. I arrived before opening and found a couple of others waiting for the doors to open. There aren’t too many seats/tables so it seems the regulars come early to make sure they get a spot.

    I had the buffalo oysters for apps and found it to be very flavorful and cooked to perfection. For my meal I got the pork chop but thought it was a bit dry.

    Also parking is street parking. I got there early so I didn’t have any issues in finding a spot so I’m not sure how it is throughout the day.

    Small place but the brunch was priced well and homemade, not commerical. Table service for the small place wasn’t great but the people where friendly. Bathrooms were literally water closets with a shared sink that was open to the kitchen. Odd but it did the job. Old building.

  493. Mark Wlaz 2018/10

    A very pleasing corner cafe / restaurant serving a wide range of comfort foods.
    We wandered up to Church Hill with no particular place in mind and came across The Hill Cafe which has been serving local residents since 1989. It was lucky for us on this Saturday night that we arrived shortly after 6:00 … by 6:30 the place was packed. The menu is large and quite diverse – such that, after making our selections, we began planning what we might order upon our next visit. And, after attentive service, familiar meals (each with a slight twist that made them even more enjoyable), and a comfortable neighborhood atmosphere – we won’t wait long before returning.

  496. Jacqueline McDaniel 2018/09

    Very nice staff, unfortunately that couldn’t make up for the lukewarm meal…roast turkey/gravy, mashed potatoes and braised collards. The meat appeared to be prepacked and cut. It didn’t taste like it was freshly made and the greens were saturated with vinegar…no flavors to savor. I won’t be recommending this place to anyone. Sorry, Hill Cafe.

    The Hill is a lively. small corner cafe. If you’re sightseeing in Church Hill, this is the place to stop and refresh. A wide variety of menu items (the Chicken Salad with tarragon & golden raisins is my fave – I crave it even in my dreams) gives everyone a chance to enjoy.

  532. Frank Rojas 2018/06

    Ok, I had tried it before, but this time I didn’t enjoy it that much.
    Fresh guacamole, don’t tell me that.
    Nothing fresh about it, fried oysters ok but not great. Wine way overpriced, martinis at my table they can do better. Beer selection, not much to select from.

  537. Angela Kappus 2018/06

    Come here for filling comfort food. The price is great, especially on Mondays when the blue plate entrees are discounted further. It’s super popular in the neighborhood though, and they don’t take reservations, so be ready to wait for a seat.

    Crab cakes were delicious and the brussel sprouts we’re awesome too. More than one server would be better on a busy weekend.

  545. John Leeper 2018/05

    Great atmosphere, good creative menu, decent prices and friendly staff. Love coming here whether it’s for late night drinks, brunch or to pickup lunch to go.
    Only criticism might be their beer selection. They have a handful of beers on tap. A little more depth on the list would help. These days, there’s no reason not to have a couple local delicious beers rotate through.
    That being said, I’ll keep coming in.

    Best oysters in town 😁 …

  553. Debra Potts 2018/04

    Small space, crowded and very noisy during the lunch hour.

  554. Virginia Cashwell 2018/04

    It is like home cooking and the atmosphere is great

    Lovely small cafe. Great service. Had the best burger I’ve had in a long time.

  557. Meredith Robinson 2018/04

    Great selection of food at very reasonable prices. Enjoy the swanky restaurant vibe without having to pay up for it.

  558. Bill Shepherd 2018/04

    Neat location in Church Hill. Food was fantastic and have a great variety of selections. Seafood and then good meat selections. Great beer and wine selection. Very quaint and friendly atmosphere. Will definitely be going back.

    Wonderful feel good food in a nice family setting.

  562. Meghan Guethe 2018/04

    Great salad, clam chowder not thick style but homemade and still tasty!

  563. Bonnie Felts 2018/04

    Food came super fast. Waitress was very attentive. And the food was good! I’d go back. 😊 …

  564. N12TF 2018/04

    Best small Cafe I have ever been too and will go back again and again. Service was great and the prices are fair. Food was amazing

  565. Nansey Cardone 2018/03

    Wonder food ! Great atmosphere!

  568. Christina Koch 2018/03

    Love this restaurant, great food and atmosphere!

  569. John Glynn 2018/03

    Terrific face lift! The meatloaf, as always, was amazing, just like your how your mom (thinks she) makes it.

  570. Mike Hall 2018/03

    Great menu, great service, lackluster beer selection, smells like a ymca pool, kinda creeped me out.

  571. Lecia Jones 2018/03

    Always good.

  572. John Roane 2018/02

    Food was delicious and served in a short time .

  573. Bob Burnleycr 2018/02

    Love the blue plate specials. Fried chicken especially good

  574. Samuel Cisco 2018/02

    Great food, great service, but limited seating. Be ready to wait a bit unless you are lucky.

    Recommendations:
    Appetizer: Crispy Brussel Sprouts
    Meal: Fried Chicken (it is some of the best in town)

  575. Sandy Webb 2018/02

    Love the BBQ, service is outstanding.

  576. Brian Corbett 2018/02

    Service slow,burger overcooked fried chicken great!

  577. Kimberly J 2018/02

    Nice casual place with really good food.

  578. Jenny Daniels Nesser 2018/02

    Great service!! I had a fried green tomato with pimiento cheese sandwich that was good. Highly recommend the buffalo fried oysters and the crab dip for appetizers. We parked on the street but wasn’t a problem to find, we had a party of 8 for 6pm reservations and all found parking within sight of the restaurant.

  579. Terry Knuckles 2018/01

    Great hang out place

  580. Sarah Allen 2018/01

    Excellent food, full menu available until 11pm

    Consistent quality and very good service.

  583. Darius Reinikovas 2018/01

    A Church Hill institution. Can’t go wrong with anything on the menu

  584. David Barnett 2018/01

    Brunch was excellent Sunday, as always. Over many years of dining there, I have enjoyed every meal at The Hill. And the good prices, too!

  585. Trey Parsons 2018/01

    This place is the beezneez. Just moved probably 4 houses away and honestly I never would have known about this spot if I didn’t which mildly upsets me and has inclined me to make this post because it’s a wildly underrated spot in Richmond in my opinion, and trust me I’ve been around. I eat food almost everyday haha and I’m very picky about it so trust me on this one. It’s an awesome spot on the corner of 28th & broad with easy Street parking all around. It’s got a really good atmosphere with dimmer more romantic evening lighting that gives it a really homey and comforting feel. If you take a date there they have these little booths for 2 in the back of the restaurant which are more comfortable that sitting in a high backed chair by a long shot… it’s basically like eating dinner in a lazy boy which should be enough to get you there right now haha and Quick tip for lunch/early dinner : snag the steak burrito bowl it blows Chipotle out of the water

  586. Vivian Hughes-Wancewicz 2018/01

    This place was wonderful!! French fries amazing, clam chowder was great!! So many different things wanted to try them all! Everything seemed to be home made including the chips!! Right down from
    St John Episcopal Church!

  587. Alton Ashworth 2018/01

    great neighborhood feel. bartender was friendly and informative.food was fresh and fast the fried green tomatoes blt with pimento cheese was crazy good..will explore Church Hill again and return to the Hill cafe

  588. Joe Corley 2017/12

    Excellent Beet & Goat Cheese salad

  589. Ryan McEwen 2017/12

    Brunch is fantastic and served until mid afternoon…great atmosphere, a gem of a neighborhood eatery, the best in church hill, definitely on my short list of favorite places to eat in Richmond.

  590. LaTasha Johnson 2017/12

    I have eaten here a couple of times on Sunday after church. I truly enjoy it. I recommend that after you go to church and get spiritually fed then come here and get your physical nourishments.

  591. C. Banks 2017/12

    Great Food! Reasonable prices. Quaint restaurant tucked away in Church Hill. Only way to make it better is a bigger location and designated parking.

  592. Simply, Tasha. 2017/12

    I had crabcake Benedict it was delicious. I loved the quaintness of the location. I enjoyed the time I had with my family our waitress was efficient and the host was excellent. Would visit again if in Richmond!!

  593. Ron Winston 2017/12

    Good eats good people’s

  594. Chris S 2017/12

    Great little place with great food and specials

  595. D R 2017/12

    Very good bar food. Small but good beer selection and fairly inexpensive mixed drinks of good quality. If you like exposed brick with finely painted old style advertisements, you will enjoy this place as much as I did.

  596. Christina Sadowski 2017/11

    Best fried green tomato and pimento cheese sandwich in richmond.
    Amazing meatloaf.

  597. Joel Carmine 2017/11

    The remodel looked good and the food was goid as well! I went with a friend and we enjoyed our lunch!

  598. Dave CF 2017/11

    Great service and atmosphere, Food that hits the spot and a wide selection of adult beverages. Try it, you will be very pleased!!!

  599. Sean Craft 2017/11

    My friend got food poisoning. Great waitress but not going back.

  600. Lee Ann Arnett 2017/10

    Food and atmosphere were great!

  601. Rev. Amanda Hill 2017/10

    Solid vegetarian options. Had the black bean tacos and a side salad, fresh lunch. Also, plenty of beers on tap!

  602. chris garland (DistilledAdrenaline) 2017/10

    Decent churchhill eats

  603. Bruno Sultanum 2017/10

    Very nice environment. The green tomatoes are awesome! Which is weird given that they are green tomatoes.

  604. Joy Zeh 2017/10

    I always get the meatloaf, it’s great! Also like their beet and goat cheese salad, the fried green tomatoes, the burgers… everything is good!

  605. Matt L 2017/09

    That fried chicken was on point!

  606. Ransome Collins 2017/09

    Blue plates are amazing!

  607. Clutch Baby 2017/09

    This place fired me because i demanded to be paid the same amount as my underqualified yet overpaid male counterparts. As the ONLY female that has been employed by this kitchen in at least the past 5 years…..i am disgusted by the verbally comfirmed misogyny that lead to my termination.

    This ENTIRE group of restaurants (Richmond restaurant group) is racist, sexist, AAAAAND forces employees to clock OUT when working past 40 hours. ….and pays all excess of 40 hours in straight time….cash. ….off the books…..undocumented. ….

    The HILL CAFE AND ALL ITS SISTER RESTAURANTS SHOULD BE HEAVILY INVESTIGATED BY OSHA AND THE BBB.

  608. michael heagney 2017/09

    Pork Chop was amazing and tender enough to be cut with a butter knife.
    Crispy Eggplant I would recommend to anyone vegetarian or not. You will most likely have left overs.
    Fried Green Tomatoes for best app.
    Great Service. Will be regulars and recommend to anyone local.

  609. Jacob Coots 2017/09

    Love this local Restaurant. Have been going here for the past 4+ years I’ve lived in Richmond. Food and staff are always great. Prices can’t be beat. Highly recommend this Church Hill eatery.

  610. J.R. Noble 2017/08

    Friendly staff and good food and beer selection… Always satisfied when I leave.

  611. Elise Burke 2017/08

    Great food, cozy atmosphere- really one of the best spots in Richmond.

  612. Jessica Brown 2017/08

    Love the food, but I wish the restaurant was a bit bigger so it was more kid friendly.

  613. Kit Powell 2017/08

    Fabulous food, presentation and service. The right choice for our special occasion.

  617. Elizabeth 2017/06

    My husband and I just had lunch there and service was great and my dish was very good, chicken fajitas . Husband ordered the meatloaf and it came black charred from the grill so the waitress replaced it with a better cut. It may be a new cooking fad now but his string beans were hardly cooked and still raw. He needs fiber but not that much, ha. We’ll return to try other dishes.

  618. Jim Toussaint 2017/06

    Loved it!

  619. Blake Jeffress 2017/06

    Sat at the bar on a Tuesday night. To my surprise, it was their rib night. Now, I’m a fan of In House specials, but being from Texas, I just had to try. I started off with a House salad, which was beautifully prepared, had a crisp, crunchy texture, and was delicious. I sat and waited for a reasonable time after finishing, drooling at the thought of a rib and chicken combination that awaited. THE RIBS WERE AMAZING AND THE CHICKEN WAS TOO DIE FOR. Please try this food! Service was sub par from the bartender… 4 stars.

  620. Logan S 2017/05

    Decent.

  621. Richard Borean 2017/05

    Great neighborhood restaurant and bar. Solid food and drinks. Great atmosphere.

  622. Liz Spaetzel 2017/05

    Great service and decent food for the price.

  623. Stacy Litchford 2017/05

    Good food, small inside, great lunch spot as a break from working downtown.

  624. Christina Cotman 2017/05

    One of my all time favorite places! Cozy. Great for a date or meet up with friends. Has a variety of selections to choose from and I have never had a complaint, even with the changes in management.

  625. Nate Haskin 2017/04

    Great atmosphere, my girlfriend and I came here on spring break. I got chicken fried steak and I loved it. They serve the same thing at Virginia Tech and this easily beats it! Highly recommend.

  626. Devin Baird 2017/04

    Fried. Chicken.

  627. reine-marie guerrier 2017/04

    Very casual. Attentive wait staff in an unobtrusive way reminiscent of European restaurants. Walked over here after leaving Cpt. Buzzy’s across the street where I stood waiting for the guy at the register to take my order instead of continuing his lengthy conversation with a customer who already had paid. Crab cakes were delicious, light, and tender.

  628. Jeannie Saxton 2017/03

    I love this local place. Food always great. Staff and service always perfect

  629. Melissa Tates 2017/03

    So delicious. We had the perfect lunch !

    Great food… Great service always a nice experience… Have been there many times never a disappointment

  631. joey zoey & chloe 2017/02

    All I want to say is my bff and I visited this place maybe 9 yrs ago. And to this day I still remember how amazing the experience was. My bff has now passed away but I will always remember that day we found The Hill Cafe. One day I will visit again with my family I now have. Thank you for the wonderful memories. 😊 …

  632. Will S. 2017/02

    Very good meal and nice service too. Crispy tried fish excellent.

  633. Adam Harrell 2017/01

    Good food but the host took forever to greet me and they were not very cordial. Doesn’t feel like they really want you to come back.

  634. linnea oni 2017/01

    Friendly staff! Just steps away from my airbnb, so super convenient! My only improvement would be.. cleanliness behind the bar. Since the area is small, it is magnified when glasses are laying about. I had to fight off the gnats while eating!

    Shrimp and grits were awesome!!!

  635. Robert Jeremiah 2017/01

    Nice small neighborhood place

  636. John Downing 2017/01

    A Church Hill staple! One of my favorite Richmond restaurants. One of the best Sunday b brunches in the area.

  637. henri allgood 2017/01

    I loved the food the intimate vibe. The music selection was tasteful. My only grime is the unattentive service from the waiters. Other than that its def a must have especially brunch

  638. Chansay Ford 2017/01

    The staff was very friendly. The food was very good. I enjoyed my atmosphere. I just moved around the neighborhood and wanted to try something in the area. It really surprised me. I definitely will be coming here more often.

  639. Darlene Brunzell 2016/12

    Good fresh food.

  640. Andy Berry 2016/12

    Really fun place on Church Hill, always good food.

  641. Sarah Pedersen 2016/12

    The food is delicious and becoming rare for Church Hill, not that expensive. I love their spoon bread, and their mushroom polenta is awesome. All of the blue plate specials are all good. This spot is a old CH standby for a reason.

  642. Sky Valenti 2016/12

    This little neighborhood Cafe is a cozy little venue right in the heart of shockoe bottom. I ordered an oyster dinner which I split with a friend and the waitress was kind enough to divided evenly on two plates. It was hot, fresh and delicious. Me and the person that I was meeting and enjoyed our meal thoroughly will be back.

  643. Johnny Araya 2016/11

    Very nice place, good ambiance, friendly staff. Very good food, good location, good drinks, quite affordable

  644. Brent Killen 2016/10

    Awesome food, a ton of options, great portions, fair prices, and a cool atmosphere.

  645. Aaron Waxman 2016/10

    Great spot for Sunday brunch. The food is good and it’s never too crowded. I love the fried green tomatoes eggs Benedict.

  646. Raul Gonzalez 2016/08

    California sandwich was awesome

  647. S S 2016/08

    Very average restaurant with average service and food. Nothing worth coming back for…

  648. Debra Vallez 2016/08

    The meatloaf and vegetables were superb. Nice ambience. Friendly staff. Nice neighborhood place.

  649. Mike Garrett 2016/07

    Small neighborhood pub that has great blue plate specials on Mondays.

  650. Andy Katt 2016/06

    Great place for traditional American fare and comfort food. Pricing and atmosphere aren’t terrible either. It can get crowded sometimes, though.

  651. Jeff 2016/05

    Great, chill spot to grab a drink and indulge in some tasty southern eats.

  652. Brian Boivin 2016/04

    We recently moved to the area. The Hill Cafe has been one of our best surprises. We now come at least once per week.

  653. Alan Jones 2016/03

    Great comfort food! Good beer selection and friendly staff.

  654. J Neto 2016/03

    Great food, great service. Good wine selection, easy to pair with your food. Also good for your vegetarian friends.
    Wednesdays are crab days, always a good bet

  655. carolina garcia 2016/02

    Excelent food in a nice neighborhood.

  656. Elizabeth O'Meara 2015/12

    I adore the historic nature of this place. Separately from that, the food was delicious. We decided on the menu comfortably without feeling rushed by our waiter. The atmosphere was friendly and the food was just right.

  657. Kevin Malloy 2015/11

    Chicken friend

  658. courtney weber 2015/11

    I went a long time ago with a friend and it just happened to be date night. We each got a filet mignon and it was so juicy and delicious its a meal I haven’t forgotten ever

  659. Stephen Poore 2015/08

    A classic staple of Church Hill. The Hill Cafe offers feel-good comfort food that is sure to not disappoint. My wife got the $20 filet mignon, which was cooked to perfection, and her choice of two sides that will be sure to excite. I took advantage of the fried chicken, easily my favorite dish, which was crispy on the outside yet tender and moist on the inside. My only complaint is that the fried chicken doesn’t come with gravy, but I’m a glutton and asked for it on the side. Hill Cafe is by far my top-5 places to eat in Richmond, the atmosphere is incredibly quaint, yet wildly charming. I recommend this place to everyone that visits.

  660. Stop the Philosophical Zombies 2015/07

    I live around the corner from the Hill Cafe and I am consistently happy with their food and service. My mom always wants to go there when she comes to visit, and I don’t mind that either. The staff is friendly the atmosphere totally relaxed but not like a bar per se, and there are lots of choices on the menu to suit every taste. Their pulled pork sandwich is better than the Alamo, and the Alamo isn’t bad at all!

  661. Taber Bain 2015/06

    Reliable comfort food. Come early for blue plate specials on weekdays.

  662. Michael Leonard 2014/09

    Delicious food.

  663. Tyler Newbold 2013/08

    Just got their Sunday brunch, what a disappointment. Have been here a few times but I’m officially NEVER going back. Cold food, cold service, can’t even toast some toast. Waitress was clueless and forgetful. I mean come on, at least try to care…

  664. J C 2013/07

    Came in during lunch (12:00) for a to-go order and it took forever. The bartender didn’t even offer to get me a drink while I waited, I had to ask a Different server for a glass of water. I ordered the Tuna sandwich.

  665. David D Bigness Jr 2013/02

    A nice small neighborhood place. Surprisingly good food which explains why it fills up. Have a beer and watch the people walk by.

  666. Steve Wyse 2013/01

    Friendly staff, good food, and decent beer selection for a small place.

  667. Leslie Callaway 2011/04

    The Standard ! Hidden gem of downtown Richmond

    Great steak. Seafood was ok.
