Unfortunately the restaurant recently closed. I don't believe that it was because of the restaurant. The City of Springfield is run by idiots that do one stupid thing after another. They told Quaker Steak that there was going to be an outlet mall built next door to them. That was two or three years ago. They still haven't broken ground... More

Had eaten at one in PA on a business trip and enjoyed it. I found this on the internet, so decided on a family trip to stop in with the family. Did not get the chance to share with family as it is closed.

I tried going here many times, but the food and service went downhill over the years. An article in the local paper confirmed that they closed on 8/25/2014.

This restaurant has closed. Based upon my experience (read my two reviews), the service was horrible! Bad service does not bring back returning customers. Bad service reviews were prevalent throughout the list of reviews on Trip Advisor.

I went there for lunch and got the buffet, which was a relief because nothing on the menu sounded appealing--not to mention the fact that it was a cluttered food covered mess. The server was nice enough, but the buffet was abysmally small. The mac and cheese was made with nacho cheese, the pork quesadilla was bland and dry, the... More

I have been to this restaurant many times, bout 20 times total. The last 5 times has been just a terrible experience with service. The last 5x's has been on a Tuesday night where it's all you can eat wings for 9.99, but just recently has changed to 11.99 all you can eat wings. It's often a Skelton wait staff... More

Stopped out to listen to a band and experience Bike Night - had their Stick Shifters mozzarella sticks (yummy) and their Breaded Boneless Wings with medium sauce - some were good and some were kind of heavy on the breading - but still very good. We enjoyed the people watching and the band. The wait staff is great - very... More

We have found this to be a more consistent experience than when they first opened. We especially like the all you can eat wing night each Tuesday evening. Gives a great opportunity to try their different sauces. And....unlike Buffalo Wild Wings, you can try different sauces without being charged for each additional one. In addition to bone-in wings, the all... More

Stopping through Springfield on our way home from DeKalb, IL we stopped here for lunch. Great food & atmosphere! We have eaten here a couple other times and have always had good food. The staff are polite & friendly. Will definitely be back!

Heard about "new management" at Quaker and decided to give it a try. Great food and even better service! They've turned things around since our last visit! Our server was attentive and fun, food was delicious. These bad reviews must be old because the "new" Quaker was fantastic.
