O’Toole’s Restaurant and Pub Opening in Midlothian

Richmond’s oldest Irish restaurant and pub is opening its Midlothian location this month. The original restaurant was opened more than 50 years ago by Jim and Marie O’Toole and has been a staple in the Richmond restaurant scene. Tom and John O’Toole, both Midlothian residents, look forward to bringing 53 years of good food and Irish cheer to the Midlothian area. The restaurant is located in the Charter Colony Shopping Center facing Midlothian Turnpike. It will be open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner during the week and adding brunch on Saturday and Sunday mornings along with a full-service bar. The same menu as the original location will be served along with daily lunch and dinner specials.
