Acceptable But Certainly Not the Best...

If you want a steak for dinner and you're not that picky, this place will do. It's not awful but nor is it outstanding. It's an acceptable meal for the money. I must admit, the service was outstanding and friendly.

My family is very close. We gather in small groups several times per year...usually around the holidays. Our biggest gathering involves 30+ family members....and that occurs in Springfield, IL. We choose O'Charley's in IL, and VA, because they have a menu that accommodates the tastes of everyone in our group. They also can handle a party of 30+ very well.... More

Busy at lunch hour but very efficient seating customers. Food was good, entree included hot rolls & butter. Excellent customer service particularly by Misty. Pleasant happy environment. Will definitely return!

Hadn't been in several years and was pleasantly surprised by how good food was. Definitely a step up from Chili's and Applebee's. French Dip was among best I've had anywhere....it was perfectly done and while I should probably be ashamed to admit we did the tater tot fondue appetizer, it sure was good. Service was fine and it was nice... More

Very good food. I had a steak which was cooked perfectly. My son had a pasta dish and my other son had chicken strips. Our appetizers were great! Cheddar fondue you dip tater tots into and a bowl of fried pickles with a spicy ranch sauce. We loved it and will definitely visit again. Staff was so awesome and helpful!!!

During our visit to Springfield we stopped here for dinner and came back the next night too. The waitstaff was awesome. The chicken strips and hot rolls were excellent and the tatortot fondue was fun. The burgers, pot pie and French dip were also very good. Wedneday is free pie!

The waitress was very friendly and helpful. Portions were large and prices were reasonable. We happened to be there on free pie Wednesday. We were so full that we turned it down. The manager wouldn't let us leave without the free pie, insisting we take some with us. My husband ate it for breakfast the next day.

This is a good restaurant in a very convenient location with good food. The restaurant is not far from I 72 and just off the Veteran's Highway. It is near shopping centers, hotels and other restaurants. After a full day in Lincoln land we chose this place because it was near our hotel. We weren't sorry either. We each had... More
