Best Salad in Springfield

Nice atmosphere. Amazing brick oven pizza. Hubs had Shrimp and Grits and it was amazing. Best to go on a week night as lunch time and weekends are understandably busy.

Have dined here a few times. Their meatloaf is very good (one of their specialties). Their salads are huge, so order a half salad unless you are super hungry. I had the BLT salad as an entree and it was very good. When dining outside our service was a bit slow. Had not experienced that when dining inside.

We went to lake point grill as a going away dinner for some friends. We were a party eight. Lake Point takes reservation ( which is one of the reasons we chose to go there) and walk ins. They have a wide variety of foods and drinks. We started with pulled pork nachos and spinach dip. Both were wonderful. They... More

We have been traveling all week and waiting for a great meal. We just had not had one yet. But we had the amazing meatloaf specialty atLake Point Grill. Includes mashed potatoes and green beans. Will definitely stop again in route to St. Louis. Service great, atmosphere nice.

Food was very good. Went at lunch time on a Friday. Took forever to get food. Did not try the pizza. Neat place inside. Very clean place.

We stopped here for dinner on our way to St. Louis and picked it based on its TripAdvisor rating and proximity to I-55. We came during dinner time and it was pretty busy and we had to wait a loooong time for our food. I tried the pork quesadillas, which were okay, but a little soggy. Others in the group... More

Have eaten at LPG a number of times and it still continues to be one of Springfield, Illinois best restaurants. At lunch, I ordered a bowl of the Potato Cheese Bacon soup. It was outstanding in taste. The ingredients were well infused in the soup. It was thick and creamy and a bowl is more than ample. The garlic cheese... More

I love the calzone here, but is seems rather pricey because it doesn't include any meat items in the base price. The basic calzone is $9.29 and is just cheeses, pesto and marinara. By the time you add 3 items (meats and veggies @ 1.89 ea) you end up with a calzone that is just shy of $15.00. That seems... More

Service was good, they checked on us periodically. My picky 5 year old ate his pizza; I think $7 for a kids pizza is high. They are skimpy with the cheese on the Nancho's 1/2 the chips had nothing on them; would it hurt to add a little more cheese & toppings? They were skimpy on the pizza I had... More
