It wasn't too much of a walk from the museums and it was very enjoyable even in 40 degree and windy weather. Lunch became dinner after looking at... read more

Great food and great music make this place a welcome addition to things to do in Springfield. The scene is mixed of all sorts of people but everyone is there to have a nice meal and listen to some great local bands.

My companion and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and food at Theodore's. We had been visiting the Springfield Armory and decided to walk to this terrific spot and have lunch. Prices are moderate and the food is really good. The atmosphere is hip with nice wooden booths and nostalgic decorations on the wall. Blues music can be heard throughout the... More

Ever watch that show cheers? I could have been filmed here! Always feeling welcome, the waitresses can have sass and have a good time with all. Great ribs and food. No joke with the ribs, this is the best place in the city in my opinion for the ribs.

I went there with a large party so we were forced to go eat in the pool hall area upstairs and not see the live music. I didn't have high hopes bc the pool hall area, well it's a pool hall but boy was i surprised. The staff was very nice and food was great!

Three of us had dinner at Theodore's on a Saturday night. The hostess was welcoming, the waitress was helpful and knowledgeable of the food selections, and the food was plentiful and great!

On the recommendation of TripAdvisor reviews, I visited Theodore's with the family on a weekend night. Full disclaimer: I am a foodie and I consider myself a good consumer and cook of barbecue. That said, I also would like to say that mine isn't perfect; I have had righteous barbecue all over this world, from Texas to North Carolina and... More

Very busy place, neighborhood is not the greatest area. Could use some curb appeal and some updates but that is also charming In its own way. Food was very good, beef very tender and portions were large. Great value. Staff & bartenders were all very friendly. Would visit again if In the area.
