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

We've dined here several times, and we haven't been disappointed yet. I've had the seafood rissotto (yummy!), the sesame tuna (delicious once but only okay the second time), several pizzas (all great), and the blueberry bread pudding (decadent). Really like the patio, even though the view is only of a parking lot. Pleasant dining and good service. Prices might be... More

My husband and I each have our favorite menu items here. Mine is the calzone cooked in their wood fired oven. His was the apple pork chop which was tender and juicy. I say "was" because last time we were there it had been rotated off of their menu after being there forever! He was disappointed that it was gone... More

We have earn here many times with varying party sizes. The services has been consistently good while the food has been exceptional. Lake Point has the best horseshoe in town. It is a local specialty for those from OOT. Their food is inventive and tasty. The woodfire white garlic pizza is really special. I have tried a lot of the... More
