We have eaten here several times in past years and were disappointed this trip. The salad bar is fresh and offers a wide variety however the hot foods were not up to our past experience. This restaurant is located inside the Bass Pro Shop.

I guess I am tired of the layout, the same foods and OK taste. It just seems to be getting old. Maybe I have been here to many times. It always seems the same. Maybe they are on a tight budget.

This spot has lost some of its glow over the years but is still a decent place to have a meal, with a good selection and fine service. It is not going to be on your top ten all-time list, but will not be on the never-again list.

Lovely place, great service and extremely personable waitresses. One of our party had the dinner buffet. She reported the salad bar was crisp and beautifully maintained. The entrees were well done...she loved the Pork loin baked with an apple sauce. Two in our party had Fish and Shrimp. Nicely done. Crisp, well cooked and efficiently served. This is a nice... More

You will probably go to Bass Pro Shop on any trip to Springfield, MO. Hemmingways is a BONUS. You can look till you drop, then go upstairs to eat and rest, back down again to see more stuff. Sunday Brunch is especially good.

There was a big selection for lunch time.....lots of things to look at including a large aquarium behind the bar. Only complaint was that no one was at the carving station most of the time while we were there. We had 14 in our party and service was way above the norm.

Hemingways has always been a great place to dine at. This trip however had a lot to be desired. The staff did a great job, but the kitchen needed a better cook. We had the all you can eat Crab Legs, and they came to teh table either over cooked or left over from the previous day.

We went in on a Wednesday night. There weren't many folks in the place so we sat down at the bar to look at the aquarium while we ate. The buffet looked like the food had been out a little while it was almost 7:30pm, so we ordered off the menu. The bartender was not busy nobody else at the... More

My son 23rd birthday and my parents in from Ohio, they wanted to take him to eat, he chose this restaurant thinking they would not have been there and we arrived at 7:30 pm directly from his work locally, he and his girlfriend ordered off menu, and my parents and I ate buffet. The food was dry and looked old,... More
