Amazing horseshoes!

The buffalo chicken or pork tenderloin horseshoe are the way to go if that's what you are looking for. The Irish nachos and shepherd's pie rock too.

Met an old friend for lunch on a Saturday and the place was packed! 45-minute wait, the hostess told us. Thankfully a couple spots opened up at the bar much sooner than that. Ordered one of their famous pony shoes at the encouragement of my companion and wasn't disappointed.

The food was good it just took a very long time to get it. I had the Parmesian Crusted Cod, one of my daughter's had the Bacon Ranch Chicken Sandwich and the other had the signature Bacon Horseshoe. Good sized portions.

I have eaten at D'arcy's Pint on several occasions. All of the food is very good. The severs are also first class. The restaurant's interior is warm and inviting. Don't forget to try their horseshoe it's very good

Smithwick's on tap! The "Taste of Ireland" was a good option for my husband who couldn't decide. My "Boxty" was flavorful and enough for two people, but not served as described on the menu (a stuffed potato pancake). Rather it had a large potato patty on the bottom, meat mixture, and a smaller potato patty on top.

Our group had fish & chips, strawberry salad, sausage sandwich & a Reuben. Abundant portions. Food was not terrific but good. Price is reasonable. Well decorated place. Enjoyable lunch. I'd give it 3.5 actually.

As a Central IL native I grew up eating horseshoes, and they get them right. The atmosphere was not really great, but it is not a bad place. The bathrooms and floors were clean and the staff was friendly.

I had never even heard of a horseshoe until I entered D'arcys Pint. Now all I can say is, I have YET to have another anything close to the one I had at D'arcy's. Maybe it was the instant hush that fell over the entire bar line as I asked what a horseshoe was. Maybe it was the instant camaraderie... More

Okay. I get it. This is a local "hot spot" in Springfield. But it's just not that interesting. Sorry. After a very long wait we found that the famous horseshoe is a slice of white bread, burger patty, fries and cheese sauce. The carb load is boring. The cheese sauce is the standard creepy yellow stuff. The fries are the... More
