The Westwoods Lodge appears neither charmingly rustic nor pleasantly atmospheric from the road. However, it was a Sunday night in Springfield, little else was open, it was off the main tourist track and had a menu featuring some interesting game items. We parked the car and headed inside what looked like a run of the mill road-side bar. The inside... More

If you want to get and Elk burger, or some other unusual type of meet, this is the place. They know how to make it correctly. Also, they have great pizza and pretty much a full menu. The servers are always pleasant and they know their stuff. The food sometimes takes longer than at other places, but that is because... More

The service was super friendly and attentive. The food choices were abundant. To be fair, I don't like fried food and believe me, this place has fried food. I chose grilled shrimp and veggies which was good but small in size so I left hungry. It's a fun place, noisy and friendly. The three of us liked it. I would... More

I love Westwoods!! If you have never been there, you need to check it out. They have the BEST wings I have ever had, plus the selection is awesome. They never get their due justice for having the best cheese sauce in Springfield, not to mention the variety! I highly recommend the Chiptole Cheese Sauce; you can't get it anywhere... More

Westwoods is locally owned and operated. A favorite with the locals. Good food. Great service. Wide menu selection. moderate price. Reservations not required but helpful if you're on a schedule. This is a good family place OR just about anything you could want. Stop by for a drink and appetizers, sandwich, wings or full meal. Also, featuring Springfield's "horseshoe". Dress... More

We went here on a Friday evening with our boys. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and the service was fantastic. Must try the acorn bites or pine cones, they are delicious!

The menu here is extremely large. Choices range from seafood and fresh veggies to fried food and sandwiches. All are reasonably priced. The wait is short and all 4 of our meals were hot and excellent. This was our 2nd time here and both experiences were above average. Would recommend it.

We found the restaurant by accident although we go to Springfield fairly often. It was just my husband's kind of place with lots of animal heads and anter lights and a cabin feel. I was not so sure I would like it but the menu was rather large with lots of "different" items than the usual place - elk, alligator,... More

We have lived in Springfield for a long time, but just started going to Westwoods. All the selections have been very tasty, well-prepared and served promptly by very friendly staff. The surroundings are very much a hunter's delight and the menu is more varied than most local eateries. We have had the grilled salmon, the various burgers, the grilled Portobello/veggies... More
