Very glad we chose this for date night!

We have lived in the area for years and were searching for a new place to try for date night. So glad we used TA again and so glad we found Theodore's! As other reviewers mentioned, we got there at 5:30 on a Saturday night and they already had a 45 minute wait after just opening at 5. However... read more

We visited in early April for an early dinner. The baby back ribs are out of this world and the smoked wings are the best I've had. It has a very cool casuals amsphere. I only wished I could have stayed for the music. You won't leave hungry.

We visited Theodore's during a Spring Break trip that brought us to Springfield for a couple days. We got to the restaurant around 5:15, and the main dining area was already full (they opened at 5). We were instead seated in a upstairs area that was very cool--a bar area with several pool tables and other bar games and plenty... More

THE place to hear great Blues music and have a fine meal. I hear TripAdvisor will not allow the word feminist to appear on TripAdvisor so FEMINIST...FEMINIST...FEMINIST.

You gotta eat here! After an enjoyable day at Six Flags we stumbled upon Theodores! Wow! The food was amazing. Brisket and ribs were unbelievable. Kids and adults alike can enjoy this gem. We will be back.

This bar is very well known in the Springfield area, the ambiance is super relaxed, good food, good prices, and it is located exactly in downtown so very close to the main hotels around, Marriott and Sheraton, walking distance from them. As a curiosity this bar appeared in the show Ghost Hunters , because it is said that a ghost... More
