One of the best meals ever. Salmon was perfect, not over done. Ribeye was seasoned to perfection. Pasta was so good and not over done. Dessert choices were awesome. Visiting from California and wished we lived closer. Prices are so reasonable. You would normally pay $10.00 more per dish any where else. I would be back if I could. Go... More

Driving Route 66. Stopped at Springfield for the night and found this wonderful place. Great service with exceptional welcome from the young lady host on front of house. Asian Salmon was superb and the three versions of beef had by the rest of our party were cooked perfectly to order. Would recommend this for a very good meal for the... More

This is the third time that I have been to this restaurant. We had reservations for eight people Saturday night at 6:30 during the Illinois State Fair. We were prepared for a busy restaurant with possible wait issues. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of service. Every aspect of the service was absolutely perfect. The team at Maldaner’s were... More

We went to Maldaner's for dinner at the recommendation of a local resident. We were very pleased with the delicious food (my seafood was cooked to perfection and so tasty) and the efficient service. We did not feel rushed at all and enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere. This restaurant has been in the same location since the 1800's. It is definitely... More

My husband and I went here for a romantic dinner. We ate outside and the weather was perfect. This is my favorite place to eat for special occasions. I usually order the Beef Wellington and am never disappointed. This night I tried the Chicken 2-ways. My husband got the duck. Both the duck and chicken were on the dry side.... More

We went to Maldeners for our 51 anneversery dinner.Ordered the beef wellington,it was like having Sunday dinner at home.The beef was fresh and you could cut it with a fork. The staff was great and very polite and knowlegable. This was our first visit to Maldeners but it won't be our last.

I've eaten at several restaurants throughout the U.S. in my travels, and I would definitely rate Maldaner's the very best in the U.S. Over the past several years I've come to Springfield to work at the state fair on the weekend, and always dined here both nights I was in town. I've tried the steaks, fish, lamb, and was never... More

Despite that commitment, the menu is creative and delicious. It is a standard in downtown Springfield and my "go to" when I'm looking for great food, great wine and excellent service.
