Lindsay's restaurant has the best food around and the prices are reasonable. The chef is to be commended for attention to detail and presentation.

In the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Hotel in downtown Springfield. Great breakfast buffet. Dinner was a little slow on the nights where there was an in-house dinner being served to a group.

Had the breakfast buffet. AMAZING! Eggs cooked to order. But I had the omelett. Super! Even more amazing the manager (Todd?) delivered it to my table personally and came back later to see if it was perfect. (It was! ) Best thing on the HUGE buffet was the fresh fruit. I'm sure the pineapple just stepped of the plane from... More

We have eaten here a couple of times while staying in the hotel. Breakfast is good but a little pricey for Springfield. Staff is friendly. Evening food is tasteless and not worth the $$

Like every other part of this hotel, the staff here did what they could do make everything perfect. When I found the eggs were sort of gray and crunchy, it took them about two minutes to bring out a fresh tray. We had the buffet as a part of a package, which is the way to go.

From the coffee, eggs selection to order to the customer service the breakfast buffet at Lindsay's is excellent. While sometimes when a restaurant are is steady or busy all the time, staff can be a bit off their game, I did not find this to be case here. It was not that busy but the food great in appearance, taste... More

We did not like anything about this restaurant. Service and food was horrible. Took us over an hour to get our food and when we did, our orders was all wrong and the stuff they did bring out was not fit for my pigs to eat.

This is a very nice place for a soup and salad lunch on a cold winter day. Located inside the Doubletree by Hilton.

I recently found myself back in Springfield on business. I enjoyed my meal at Lindsay's Restaurant in the President Abraham Lincoln Hotel the last time I was here, so I thought I would try it again. Again I found the food, service, and ambiance were great. This time I ordered the Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad topped with Salmon with... More
