Our first trip to Millie’s and we were not disappointed! The brunch menu is unique and everything we ordered was delicious. Our waitress was awesome as well. The restaurant is small and noisy, but it didn’t ruin our experience.

Hamburger was average at best
Iced tea was absolutely terrible being that it tasted less like tea and more like water
Best food item in the restaurant is the potato’s which are great
Service was good
Price is too high for what you get

Two of us met, one from Durham North Carolina and the other from Charlottesville Virginia. Just wanted a nice place to celebrate together. The food was fabulous and the service was excellent. Very very enjoyable experience.

Our first time at Millie's. Very pleased by all aspects of our visit. Staff were casual but yet professional and obviously experienced; they stuck to "business" but with a friendly style. Food arrived quickly and was excellent (Eggs Ben-Gurion and a vegetable "mess"). Liked the fact that they weren't afraid to spice the dishes, so there was nothing bland about the meal. Likely to return to Millie's

I’ve been coming to Millies since I moved to Richmond.
Only recently did I find out that they’ve been taking reservations which I highly suggest. The service atmosphere were all the same. The food delicious as usual.

This is a MUST if you want to have a local, somewhat eclectic brunch. Make reservations so you don’t miss out! It is clearly a landmark/local favorite.

First time in a long time we went to Millie's for breakfast. We really enjoyed it. I had the veggie mess and my dining partner had the lobster and scrambled eggs. Both were tasty and fresh. Excellent and very quick service.

Great food as always. Love that they have multiple vegetarian options. Service quick and friendly. The patio area is very small with too much furniture for the size and view/atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. Still an amazing place to go

Millie’s is a Richmond icon! We have been enjoying meals there for about 25 years and it is still a delight to return. They continue to serve really tasty food with high quality ingredients that are well prepared. It’s remains a fun urban diner, it works so why change?

Amazing staff! They are so friendly and always try to accommodate people even if they don’t have reservations, which is not something you see a lot of places as busy as this - but our table was ready when we arrived for our reservation so they don’t sacrifice honoring that, which is important.

Not to mention they all seem to enjoy what they do and make the environment lively and fun. The food is outstanding in every way - price, quality, presentation. The ambiance feels like an old school diner without feeling old and outdated.

Service was top notch. Food was average as were drinks. Environment was okay. Cramped and loud. Biggest detractor was blaring of entire record of Backstreet Boys. One 90’s boy band song is nostalgic, more is nauseating. Didn’t really fit the vibe. Might go again and sit outside.

We have so missed going to Millie’s and particularly missed the camaraderie that the owner, Paul, always bring. Past patrons will recall waiting in the brunch line and Paul’s sticky notes with drink requests! Food was hot, delicious and service great.
