While you will not confuse a dinner at Richard's with getting the real thing in Germany, it is relatively authentic, and where there are departures from exactly what you'd expect in Germany, the adaptations are likely to appeal to American tastes. The sign out front...More

Sorry I did not see this question until now. I do not know if they will do low sodium requests, but it is a small place and they do seem to enjoy seeing their customers happy.

Description
A true family run restaurant. Old world ambiance from the classic German favorites playing on the stereo overhead to the large collection of bier steins hanging on the walls. The professional wait staff work hard to ensure a 5 star experience. the incredible selection of imported wines and biers will refresh even the weariest traveler. You will sit down to our famous pretzels and rolls aside Richard's Own secret recipe mustard. The best of all the scrumptious flavors of authentic German recipes brought direct from Mannheim and traditional American classics. From Schnitzel, sausages and Sauerbraten to the finest steaks, seafood and soups, you will find something that appeals to you. OOOH! The desserts too. These will be the perfect finish to your meal, IF you left any room. We look forward to seeing you soon.
