This restaurant was really impressive! From atmosphere to the food/ drinks. It was my first time checking this place out. Normally I don't leave Richmond city very often but this was worth the short drive. They have a wonderful patio in the front of the restaurant but a somewhat cramped interior dining room. When people wait for the their tables, it can get a little congested. There is a small parking lot in the back with a bigger parking lot about 30 feet further away. I had the fish plate and it was great! My girlfriend had a salad with tofu! Only issue I have is the prices are kinda expensive. However, I definitely recommend!!

This was our 2nd time here and we've really enjoyed it both times. The Peach PK cocktail was great as well as the coconut shrimp roll and Hawaiian pork bowl.

Hands down the best nachos one can have! Portions are ginormous and mind-blowing! Kudos to the cook and staff for providing such great experience.

The food here is pretty good, and the drinks are great. They give very large portions here and most of the food we got was delicious, however the grilled shrimp on the salad was literally the worst shrimp I've ever been served at a restaurant. Other than that, it's a great atmosphere and worth going to.

A friend of ours recommend this place and it was definitely worth it!We ordered the Hawaiian Nachos (which was absolutely delicious), General Tso’s Wings (really really delicious), and the Lamb Shank Tacos (tbh this was just okay. I just wished it had more flavor. I think I’ll try out other food instead). I also got the Cosmic Love but I honestly didn’t find anything special about the drink.Overall, the vibes and the service is great. We will definitely be visiting to try out their other food!

I got the lamb cheesesteak without a bun and it was sooooo tasty. Loved the fries. I really had a hard time deciding what to order! Would definitely return.

The service and food are amazing! I loved the salmon cake and slaw, recommended to me by our server. Fresh ingredients and vibrant flavors! It's definitely a must try!

Worth the wait!!!We couldn't make a reservation, as we were smaller than a party of 5, however the wait time was extremely accurate and you have the option of enjoying a drink at the bar until your table is ready. Food was great, my husband had the lamb shank tacos and I had the lamb burger. I enjoyed their coconut cream pie too

Great vibe. Wonderful food. Generous portions. Try the nachos with pork—delicious! Staff is friendly and welcoming.

I held my engagement party here at Little Nickel and it was a perfect, stress free experience. The guests absolutely loved the food and drink - LN provided a menu of various sliders, along with a spring salad and a Hawaiian nacho bar. The alcoholic punch was super refreshing and the frozen Cosmos were a major hit. The venue perfectly held 50 or so people without issue. The music was great too! I want to thank Chrissy and the staff for putting together a fantastic event that I will remember forever. Five stars and they've got a customer in me for life.

This place was decent. The wait took an hour to be seated. The food wasn't bad but it also wasn't great. I had the lamb shank tacos. The meat was VERY tender and fell off the bone. Although this might have been the best cooked lamb I've had in some time it was bland to taste. The condiments that came with it helped a lot with the flavor. My wife had the lamb burger and that was much better.


The server tripled my tip, which I believe is illegal. My daughter and I had dinner there last week. The server had an attitude and the food was awful! We had a burger and the crab spaghetti. The burger was black and dry. The crab spaghetti had a ridiculous amount of pasta and was also very dry. We didn’t eat nor did we ask for to-go boxes. I left a five dollar tip. I noticed on my bank statement that it was now a $15 tip. I contacted the restaurant and left a message for a manager. I was told someone would call back that day. No one called. I will never go there again!

Great little place with a unique menu and atmosphere. I got the burger and coleslaw. Service was fast and friendly. I would've given 5 stars but my food wasn't hot enough. It was exceptionally busy, though. I'll be returning!
