I love the food at this restaurant, and the service is fine, but the noise level is ridiculous. It's actually difficult to carry on a conversation. I've sat at the bar at 3:00 and it was great, but I hesitate to ever eat dinner there again. Once our book club met there in a "quiet" room. It was fine, but... More

I ate here twice within the same week. One time was for lunch and one time was for dinner. The lunch experience was great. The Shrimp Po’ Boy was delicious. The fries were also good. Lunch service was great for a busy time of day. The dinner experience was not so great. The wood fired Creole Pizza was not so... More

We were in the area visiting family for the holidays. Met old friends there the Saturday after Christmas for lunch. Good was good, not overpriced, portions large. 2 of us had wood stove cooked calzones, which we are only half. The men had a big italuan sandwich which both said was very good. Not exactly on the beaten path in... More

We have been going to Lake Pointe since they opened. They have a nice menu with something for everyone . It was my choice as it was my Birthday dinner. I had the grilled Itslian sandwich .... Which I frequently get. This time it was on real dark toast with not much flavor. I like it best when it was... More

Sound bounces non stop off the walls and floor so you can't hear your dinner date. The steak was ok, something weird about the mashed potatoes....

Stopped by the Lake Pointe Grill while traveling through Springfield and reading others' reviews. We were hungry when we went in, but not when we left! The menu here is extensive, and offers a wide variety--from their specialty of wood-fired pizzas, to Italian, burgers, American, sandwiches, steaks, and a variety of specials. Everything looked delicious so it was VERY difficult... More

I have eaten here on numerous occasions now for both lunch and dinner. Everything I have had has been wonderful. They have a large selection from the menu. They also have a wood fired oven for pizzas and their pizzas are very good as well. Service was good and the staff friendly. You will not be disappointed!!

I am usually a bit concerned when a server asks for your order and there's no order pad to write the order. There were four of us dining. Restaurant was packed, so servers were busy. Our server took our order of pizzas with different substitutions and and appetizers, and two other entrees plus our drink orders. He brought our orders... More

We were on the road back to Northern Illinois & flipped through the gps to find a place for dinner. This place is proof that pulling a name out of a hat can work out well. The waiter knew the menu & made good recommendations. It took a little longer than I would have expected for our food to come... More
