American Restaurant
$$
“Located in a former old time small town pharmacy, Richardsons cafe is a guest favorite for many reasons: the down home southern fare that often features fresh local seafood, the locally made deserts, the old soda fountain counter with stools for handcrafted milkshakes, malts, limeade, sundaes and floats, the 50's decor and old time TV shows on constant loop, plus friendly staff and large portions. In addition to the bar stools at the front of the old soda fountain counter, there are several indoor tables and booths as well as some outdoor tables along Main Street when there is warmer weather to enjoy. There is a regular menu as well as several Lunch and Dinner specials that change daily. Even if you do not make it here for lunch or dinner, it is well worth a pop in for ice cream or desert. Did we mention that desert is awesome? Open Everyday for Lunch, and open Everyday except Wednesday for Dinner. ”
