Good small town restaurant!

Menu is somewhat limited, but you will find something that will fit your pallet. Service is fast and friendly. Comfortable seating and a full bar. Non-smoking throughout the restaurant.

We had dinner here with friends on Nov 14th and 15th while staying at a nearby B & B. Nice place well situated on main street in Springfield Ky. Waiting staff was quick and friendly. There looked to be lots of locals eating, which usually means good food. I ordered the Hot Brown on the first night and it was... More

You may order from the menu but on my last visit I enjoyed the buffet: salad bar,fried fish, fried chicken, meat loaf, potatoes, green beans, corn, biscuits and gravy, few more things, two kinds of cobbler and two kinds of cake for $9.75 at lunch. The fried chicken was exceptional. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful. I would eat at... More

There was a buffet that looked adequate but we ordered from the menu. Lots of locals there. The food is good but not exciting. Better than fast food by far though.

in town for a bbq contest so we went out for supper the nite before--this seemed to be the best choice in town---and it was good. Excellent cocktails along with a good meal, catfish platter was well cooked and tasty, I attacked the Friday nite seafood buffet----were a bunch of salads too but didn't hit that side of tables

My wife and I stayed in Springfield for two nights while hitting the Bourbon Trail. Wanting to stay close to Maple Hill Manor we chose to dine in downtown Springfield. The Innkeeper recommended Mordecai's as one of the better places in Springfield. We went on a Friday night and dined on the front porch. I had just a simple bacon... More

Mordecai's is fun and they have great food. An expansive buffet is served at lunch and dinner. Friday and Saturday nights they have a sea food buffet. They also have a Sunday Brunch Buffet. The menu is interesting and the food great. I loved their steak and Bourbon pork chops. Homemade soups. It is a place where a lot of... More

We were recommended this restaurant and we are glad we went. The heavenly chicken was just that, heavenly... My partner had the bourbon pork chop which he enjoyed but preferred the heavenly chicken. We went to go again the next night but it was closed being a Sunday. Definitely a must is in the area
