Richmond, Indiana's Dining and Wine

Find Fabulous Food At Little Sheba's In Richmond, IN

Chuck's Sports Bar

Sports Fans gather all your friends and great ready for the season's upcoming games! It's time to cheer on your favorite home-town team at Chuck's Sports Bar in Richmond, Indiana. Grab a bite to eat from their selection of mouth-watering foods and enjoy a beer or drink. Chuck's Sports Bar is perfect for a friendly game of pool or to just hang out and catching the game. It's a friendly place we enjoyed on last visit to Richmond, Indiana. The food was great, and the service, well, it's not often you can catch a waitress on a busy night in any Sport's Bar, but ours was right there when we needed her! The atmosphere is electric when a game's on whether you're cheering for the home-team or not. The sports memorabilia which covers the walls adds a bit of nostalgia to Chuck's Sports Bar located at 1500 North "E" Street in Richmond, Indiana. Whether you like sports or not it's one of the best place in town to just hanging out and enjoy the company of friends!

Welliver's Smorgasbord

Early Sunday evening we met with a couple of dear friend to decide where to eat. We wanted something different than the regular fair; maybe a wide selection to choose from on the menu and some wonderful desserts. What better place to try than Welliver's Smorgasbord? This family owned restaurant has been around since 1947, serving over 150 items at their Smorgasbord. In the beginning the Welliver's Smorgasbord was in a small store front in downtown Hagerstown; a cozy small town not far from Richmond with unique shops to explore. Since opening Welliver's has expanded to accommodate the crowds who travel from far and near to dine from a wonderful selection on the menu and the delicious Smorgasbord. The wide selection of savory meats, fresh vegetables, and desserts make Welliver's Smorgasbord, located at 40 East Main Street in Hagerstown is the perfect places for large groups and families too.

We were warned before we arrived at the Wilson Winery; these are good old country boys. We never expected to be welcome like a part of a family of friends the moment we stepped into the barn. That's exactly what happened, and before we knew it we were thrust in the middle of helping bottle the newest addition to Wilson Wines selection: Steuben. Our reward, a cup that never ran dry and delicious, homemade bread and chili; perfect for the brisk evening.

"Good, Down-To-Earth People!"

When my husband thinks about our visit one phrase comes to mind, "Good, down-to-earth people!" This is the heart of Wilson Wines, and what keeps guests returning year after year to sample from their award-winning wines and enjoy good times in a family-friendly environment.

Olympian Candies Secret Recipes Are A Sweet Treat

In the spring, while visiting our dear friend, Nancy, we had the pleasure of discovering Olympian Candies in Downtown Richmond, Indiana. As a chocolate lover, I was in heaven when I inhaled the delicious scent of my favorite treats. From Turtles to Chocolate covered nuts, it was difficult to choose from the wonderful selection. My solution; select a box with a variety of chocolates.

I wondered what the secret was to making so sweet month-watering chocolates, but our hostess would not reveal her secret. Olympian Candies offers more than chocolates. There's candy to quench everyone sweet-tooth. Olympian Candies also handles orders for weddings and special events, which make these events even more memorable. Olympian Candies is located in Downtown Richmond.

Another Chocolate Lovers Delight

Only in the Midwest will you find Ghyslain's signature hand-painted chocolates. Each piece of chocolate is made from the finest ingredients of smooth ganache fillings, fresh fruit purees, liquors, and nuts; a heavenly delight to savor. Visit the Ghyslain website to find chocolates and other delicious treats, or call Toll Free 1-866-449-7524.
