This is one of the more upscale restaurants in town. Not the finest but also not the snootiest! Excellent food all around! Awesome Steaks, Fresh Seafood, Great Salads, Unbelievable Chicken, and the Best Deserts in town IMO.
Favorite Dish: Calimari, Fileto Porto, and Chocolate Flourless Cake!!!
You can smell this place from miles away!!! It has been a long time since I have been here so I think I need to go check it out again to refresh my memory. Very interesting menu items like rainbow trout, quail, duck.......
Favorite Dish: dont remember but i will keep you posted
Great Bbq place that is a little overpriced for a burger but occasionally worth it. The burgers are great!!
I am not really into all you can eat specials because they are not worth it for me, but for those of you who can eat that much Mondays they have all you can eat brisket and all you can eat ribs on tuesdays.
Favorite Dish: The cheeseburgers yummy
A new restaurant to springfield, so of course I have been there. No need to dress up for this place, a VERY casual atmosphere. It kind of reminds me of a mexican restaurant without all the colors. The bbq is wonderful though and they all kinds of sauces to chose from.
Favorite Dish: The corn on the cob is wonderful and you must try it!!!
Of course everyone knows Aaron Buerge from the bachelor well this is his restaurant. I have seen him there once, he's okay just not my type. The word is he doesn't have a lot of respect for the women, but that is all heresay; I don't know him personally.
The restaurant has a great atmosphere with an outdoor terrace which is always important to me. This place was voted Best Singles Hangout by 417 magazine and now that I think of that there are a lot of single people there. Nights to get crowded so get there early if you want a table. Some nights they also have a band playing-I got up to sing with them one night (sorry guys was a little tipsy:)
Overall it is a really good time.
Favorite Dish: I really enjoy the thai lettuce wraps. They also have a drink called the Bachelor Party, it is huge and costs $15. I think it is made to be shared with friends, but I did see a girl drink one by herself, then she went and hit on Aaron. You go girl!
I have been here two times, each time it was okay. I haven't had anything there to really impress me yet. It wasn't horrible just not the spectacular I look for in a restaurant. they have dishes from China, Japan, Korea, and Thailand.
Favorite Dish: I dont have one yet, i will keep you posted
New restaurant in town!!! Always very exciting for me and seafood even better. This place has some sushi on the menu but is more into thier entrees. It's a nicely decorated place with always nice looking cars in the parking lot. I have only been here once and loved it. I have not heard of anyone whom has not like this place
Favorite Dish: Try the drunken shrimp it is fantastic
Seafood lovers welcome to the buffet of all buffets!!! Hemingway's is part of the biggest Bass pro store in the world and the buffet is there to match it. It is nicely decorated and part of the restaraunt gives you a nice view of the store.
Favorite Dish: you cant go wrong with a seafood buffet including lobster and crawfish
I am a big lover of fish and this place is awesome, i have been waiting for a restaraunt to come to springfield like this! I have been here several times and have loved everything i have ever ordered! The seafood is flown into springfield and the chef's are taught to prepare fresh fish. Fresh fish is really hard to find in springfield :)
they have great happy hours too! check out their website for details
the place is nicely decorated and the bar has a working waterfall.
they however do not make reservations
Favorite Dish: i loved the oysters on the half shell!!! yum yum! i also like the almond encrusted tilapia and potato, aspargus, and smoked salmon salad was wonderful
this place is hidden on historic walnut street, i didn't even know it existed for the longest time. Amazing place to eat!! Nice italian atmosphere with very friendly service. The place was voted best itailan by 417 reader in 2003, 2004, and 2005. this is a very romantic place to go on a date.
Favorite Dish: Appetizers try the calamari or the steamed mushrooms. i had an awesome steak with blue chees and portobella mushrooms MMMM!
This what you call fine dining!! Great food but the chef himself james Clary. They are the only restaurant in springfield that uses USDA prime beef and has a reputation for having the best steaks in town; i think i will have to agree. Their cuisine is influenced by contemporaty french, pan asisan and latin cooking. i have been here a couple times and loved it each time. Be ready to shell out some money though.
I had some wonderful friends that had thier wedding reception here and believe me it was one of the best dinners i have ever had.
they were voted by 417 magazine to have the best desserts
Favorite Dish: Steak, steak steak!!! they also have a pre-fixe menus which is wonderful for them to pair the food and wine for you!
I love this place!!! they have a great ambiance and great food. even though you pay a little more it is worth the price. According to 417 magazine it was voted Best of the Best: money no object in the 2005 poll. They were also voted Best seafood, Best service, Best wine selection, best place to go for a date, and has the best server and best bartender. With all those votes you cannont go wrong!!
they also have a great martini bar upstairs
Favorite Dish: The filet is great and the sea bass entree is wonderful. of course great wine and martini selection.
I have been to this place several times and have been satisfied each time. great food, great atmosphere and great service! They speacilize in northern italian food and have a world class chef tony garcia. it is a great romantic place or also they have tables for groups. They also have a private dining room that seats 45 people.
Favorite Dish: i love thier bruschetta alla toscana and polo balsamico! Thier lasgna is supposed to be the best in town
I have only eaten here once and it was delightful. it was in the middle of the week so it wasnt very crowded, on the weekends is a different story though. What is really cool about this place is they use local produce and try to do as much business locally as possible
Thier wine list was recognized by Wine Spectator, it contains a list of wines for $20
According to417 magazine readers is was voted bes salad in town.
They also have the bodega bar that serves spanish tapas.
Favorite Dish: Prawns stuffed with procuitto--Wonderful!!!
Buffalo's has pretty good food but the atmosphere and the drink specials are much better! It is more of a sports bar with about 10 tv's and you can also play the wonderful game of NTN. It serves food much later than most restaurants which comes in really handy sometimes.
Favorite Dish: Mushroom swiss burger
