This place is amazing. This was my second time eating at Croaker's Spot in Richmond,VA and both times I was blown away. This place is to die for, the food is so delicious. The Hot butter soul wedges are my personal favorites they will melt in your mouth and its only an appetizer. The portion of one entree is more... More

My wife suggested this restaurant for lunch and boy was she right. We had five in our party. The parking was a bit of a challenge....due to the popularity of the food. The atmosphere was casual and family friendly. The staff was neat, clean and friendly. From the hostess to our waitress, EVERYONE went out of their way to make... More

From the history of Mr Croaker and how the restaurant came to be, to the amazing staff of today, you won't be disappointed. The food is awesome, the quantities are huge, the prices are reasonable. The ambiance of the place is what makes it all pop, loud, boisterous, infectious. Don't go in with a bad mood, unless you want to... More

Everything about the restaurant pleased from the greeters, to the very warm wait staff, and obvi- the food! Fish was fried to perfection. The cornbread was magical. Will definitely come back when I return to Richmond!

This restaurant exceeds expectations in service, quality and hospitality. The portions are so huge, one platter feeds two and you'll still have leftovers. Everything is cooked to order, perfectly seasoned and oh so good. Their Mac and cheese as a side is heavenly, and don't mention the square of fluffy cornbread that's so huge it comes in a separate plate.... More

The food is excellent and the portions are healthy. You will have a take home box. So much so that their desserts are package to-go automatically. Everything is made from scratch and it is incredibly authentic. If you are in the Richmond area, it is definitely a "must go" place for true soul food.

Additionally the cabbage that they serve with all entree's was good and the corn bread was awesome. Stay away from their slices signature cake they are... More

We were staying at a local hotel while visiting the area for Washington Redskins training camp. My husband, myself and two kids, based on the good reviews, went to Croakers Spot for dinner. Though we go there early (around 5:30pm) we did have to wait about 15 minutes for a table. Once seated, we were greeted by a delightful waitress... More
