We've been eating at Nearly Famous for about 15 years and this one example of bad service is why my husband says we will never be back. When we went to order drinks, the waiter actually wanted to argue about how the correct way to pronounce the name of a latte. It was really strange because we have had the... More

This is our favorite Saturday lunch spot. There is usually a wait, but worth it. Their tomato basil soup is outstanding. The Nearly Famous Salad is a continued favorite and hard to break away from to try something new. Consistently great food and service.

My wife took me here for the first time for lunch. I had the pastrami and my wife had the chicken salad sandwich. Both were really good and the price was reasonable. The table we were sitting in was on a raised platform which gave us a heightened view of the main dining. The table was private enough we didn't... More

Love their tomato soup and egg salad sandwiches. Great place for lunch! Pleasant atmosphere. Good service. Can get really busy at lunchtime -- go early.

A mainstay of Springfield, this is not your trendsetter restaurant like it was in the 80's (before it burned and had to move), but you can be assured of fresh food, specials, friendly service, and a menu that has standards and newer items, as well. They are rightly famous (or nearly so) for their tomato soup, and I can't recall... More

Have eaten here many times and quality and service are consistently excellent. Although crowded at lunchtime, for supper it is pleasantly quiet. Pasta dishes are a reasonable size and some dishes are even available in half portion. Two favorites: braccioli and prima vera. Entrees come with salad or soup. Quiche and daily specials also very good. Easily found, across Glenstone... More

I keep meaning to order off the menu but I always end up with the specials. Their soups and quiches are always THE BEST!! I've never tasted anything mediocre here.

Our visit to “Nearly Famous” began with a lot of anticipation and hope for one of those out-of-the way special finds. Input from several reliable sources led us to expect something a bit more special than we actually encountered. Our dining experience did not live up to our expectations, and we had “diner’s remorse” that we hadn’t selected an alternative... More

I just love this place. It great for lunch and dinner. They have daily specials and my favorite part is that they have quiche. The quiche is different daily and is absolutely amazing! You must try Nearly Famous!

Everything on the menu at Nearly Famous is good. It is a very popular lunch spot and the wait at lunch can get long, so go a littlle early if possible. It serves very good soups, sandwiches, salads and pastas.
