Nice sized portions and great food. Loved the salmon and lava cake. Stuffed meatloaf was fantastic. Friendly wait staff and family atmosphere.

We really liked our food, but it was a very busy place and this was maybe a little distracting but no huge deal. The service was very good-very efficient and very friendly. My wife raved about her steak and crimini mushroom pizza, and the stuffed meatloaf was very good, although not quite as moist as I would have liked. The... More

The focal point of the dining room at Lake Pointe Grill is their wood-burning oven, and anything that comes out of it is well worth waiting for. The handmade pizzas are excellent! The rest of the menu is generously portioned and well prepared and the beer list is adequate if not exciting. The atmosphere can be a bit loud; there... More

I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The Chicken Chile Soup was such a great tasty dish that I still continue to rave about it. The soup had ample pieces of chicken and the chile flavor was outstanding. My son had the hamburger and he said it was cooked to perfection, medium well. The French fries... More

I must admit, I would have missed this place entirely if not for TripAdvisor. It is located in a mini-strip mall in the outskirts of Springfield, just a half mile from my hotel and I never would have thought to try it. The food was outstanding, I ordered chicken marsala with garlic potato gnocchi, upscale restaurant quality but the entree... More

First, they have some of the best pizza in town. You really can't beat a wood fired pizza, and they have some options other places just don't have. Our salads were great. The Caesar salad was very tasty. Unfortunately, it tastes so good because they use pesto in it, which isn't listed on the menu. I am severely allergic to... More

We eat here once or twice a month. You won't find better food in this price category. Great pizza, my husband loves the Buffalo chicken horseshoe. The top restaurants in this list are all downtown where visitors to Springfield historic sites have access to restaurants. Out of town visitors should venture out of downtown springfield and try lake pointe grill.

Reception staff at Baymont hotel, suggested this place for a casual diner.....which worked out to be perfect. Your garlic bread and tomato soup made my evening. I will be back. Thank you.

Called and made a reservation for 20-25 people for a pre-graduation lunch before the 4:00 UIS commencement ceremony. Reservation was at 12:30 and we had plenty of time even with our large party.We were finished by 2:00!! Food was brought out in a timely manner-everything from special order pizza to the brisket was hot!! Our server, very nice young man,... More
