Our Beer List - Devin's Art Work

Beer is good food...

We try to keep the beer selection unique. You'll find the time-tested favorites plus some drafts and bottles that will stretch the pallet.

Main Dining

Food is good food too...

Seating and service available in two areas, our main dining room or our game room. We accept reservations and can accommodate large parties. Please call for details!



Past meets future...

Richard's on Main has an abundance of history and character, as well as modern conveniences! Test your luck on our 3 gaming machines, darts, pool tables and more!

A Central Illinois staple for well over a decade and a half, Richard's on Main is still serving up great food, drinks, and conversation until the wee hours of the morning.

This ain't your mom's basement.
