    we arrived about five minutes late, were seated immediately, and received waitress service within five minutes. The excellent spicy Bloody Mary arrived a few minutes later, and our brunch plates appeared after our second sharp sip. Overall, our whole brunch experience was outstanding. We shall return.

    I just love Millie’s. Been coming for over 30 years. I am disappointed that they no longer have dinner service as it is difficult to get there during the day with work but when I can get there it never disappoints. On this occasion, I was bringing a work associate who had never been there before. She absolutely loved it and is looking forward to bringing her husband. I found a favorite on the menu in the Thai Spicy Shrimp. My associate had the veggie wrap. Both of us were thrilled with lunch and look forward to returning.

    Food was fantastic! Service could have been a little better. We weren’t checked on after receiving our food and my husband’s grits were cold and I had to give him my water because he ran out and we weren’t given refills. The food would definitely bring us back though, so, so good!

    I’ve been to Millie’s several times and always loved the food but this time the food was just average. Had eggs Benny — and it wasn’t good. Mixed drinks were also just … meh. I’ll try Millie’s again in hopes this was just a fluke thing, but there are so many good places to eat in Richmond so they’ll have to Jon their fave — a lighten up on all the salt!

    The menu choices were great and the food was delicious. Millie's is obviously the place to be for Sunday brunch! The music that played was really loud which resulted in everyone talking really loud. So that was the only drawback was how hard it was to have a conversation with others at my table. But I would go again!

    The food was amazing: I had the Devil’s Mess & my husband had the Cajun Mess. I also had the Keevil Paloma. The decor & ambiance were SO cool, too. The place was packed, but our waiter kept up with everything. The waiter told us that they’re updating the tabletop jukeboxes - SO cool.

    On Sunday afternoon. Had reservations and seated immediately. Service was OK. Noise level extremely high with loud music, conversation, and close seating. Food selections were mostly spicy. Chose Eggs Benedict. Hollandaise sauce too cheesy and spicy.

    I’d never been to Millie’s though I was born here 73 years ago. My Bride had been to Millie’s 25+ years ago and had enjoyed it. I don’t enjoy my food as spicy as it was served to me Friday at Millie’s. I was warned when reading reviews online about the spiciness of the house potatoes. I had the corned beef hash. The beef was very tender and tasty and the first few bites of potato were good too. But I didn’t want to finish them. Im probably in the minority. My Bride had the Thai Shrimp w/noodles and she loved it! If I’d been 30 years younger, and there’d been more fans moving air and I’d ordered something less spicy I’d have enjoyed it more. NOPE! I ain’t blaming Millie’s. I’ll go back. Adjust my hearing aids and order something more bland. Enjoy YOUR visit to Millie’s.

    Millie's is an icon so my one time visit should only be taken as a suggestion. Our server was excellent and to some the taste of our brunch would be a treat but beware of highly seasoned potatoes and the brisket in the corned beef hash was so salty it overwhelmed the taste of everything else. Somewhat disappointed in this icon.
