Best Kept Secret

My husband and I love this restaurant. It's especially quiet because very few locals seem to frequent it. The food is good and reasonably priced, and they will make substitutions. The venue is beautiful. Service is friendly. We like to stop here for a light dinner. Parking is tricky because the... read more

Lindsay's offered a special buffet for our conference attendees - $10 included buffet and drink. The buffet was well-stocked, clean, and tasty and the service was excellent as well!

We made the President Abraham Lincoln Hotel our base of operations during our two-day trip to Springfield, Illinois, and were very impressed when he opted to have breakfast at Lindsay's prior to leaving for a visit to New Salem State Park, one of the stops on the Lincoln Lore agenda. The Abraham Lincoln, formerly the Renaissance Hotel, has undergone considerable... More

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
