When visiting Richmond, you must treat yourself to real homecooking at Mama J”s. Everything was fresh,hot and De-li-cious. They have a full bar and offer happy hour specials. The food was cooked to perfection and reminded me of Sunday dinners at my grandmom”s. We left with full bellies and homemade desserts “to go”. Service is quick, friendly and attentive but I didn”t feel rushed. It was definately reasonably priced with generous portions.The atmosphere is relaxed and CLEAN. They were easy to get to from highway going into the downtown area(short distance from VCU &VUU). We can”t wait to go back again. Mama J”s is a MUST HAVE while in Richmond.

Mama”s is a quaint restaurant located in the Downtown area. The food is AMAZING! The decor is very pretty. Everything is made fresh including the cakes. Mrs. Johnson and her staff are very friendly and make you feel like you just walked into their homes. My favorite is the catfish. The greens and sweet potatoes are smack your momma good.I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to every one. It is a small cozy location so please be patient because you will have to wait BUT, believe me it is so worth it.
Oh my gosh, where do I begin? This was my first, but not last visit. The restaurant is conveniently located in downtown. When you walk it, the decor is simply elegant, tasteful and beautiful. The bar is off to your left and is nicely put together. Not too many bottles, just enough to impress the neat at heart. There are two tables in the front window offering a view of the main street. To the right of the front door, are a couple of chairs for waiting customers. Overall, the restaurant is small. However, it”s the place to eat for grown folks. The service was surpurb. Our waitress had a beautiful smile and took care of our every need. The staff was professional and polite. They kept an eye on every customer. When I finished my meal, a different waitress cleared my plate and bowls. I really like teamwork and that”s a reason this restaurant is successful.On to the main reason for the visit, the food! We ordered the trout, collard greens and candied yams. Oh my word! The fish was perfectly fried and the candied yams were the best I”ve ever had. A corn muffin came on the side. It too, was wonderful. I didn”t have room for desert, but the bread pudding looked wonderful. My partner and I have decided Mama J”s is going to be our new “spot”! Thank you to the owner for coming over and speaking to us. We are so proud of our “sister friend” for living her dream and embracing our culture! May God continue to bless you, your staff and your business.If you are in Richmond, please visit Mama J”s. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
