“Okay, Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Went here for lunch with a friend. This is a nice, old-fashioned kind of place. The lunch menu is somewhat limited. My friend had a Turkey Curry Sandwich which she said was good; I had a cheeseburger which was not bad, but nothing special. For dessert, my friend had Creme Brulee, which was excellent (she gave me a taste). I picked Maldaner's for lunch because I had heard they had a nice selection of wines by the glass. Well, the wine list isn't bad, but it is expensive. For example, a glass of Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon is $14.50. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. There's nothing wrong with this place at all, but be aware that you are getting Springfield food at Chicago prices.

“One of My Favorite Spots in Springfield”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A very good winelist and top service, as well as the food make this restaurant a Springfield favorite. The Caesar Salad is fine, but the goat cheese salad is tops. When soft shell crab is in season, it's a "small plate" you won't want to miss, as is the trout. Weekends they have a roast beef special dinner, but we usually opt for the fish special. ...and the flourless chocolate cake (Queen of Sheba cake) is sinful.

“great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

this place was wonderful, we had a big group and the food arrived all at the same time which was great. The food tasted great and for the price (20$ a plate) it was very much worth it. I wish i had more time to describe it but i must run to my Dr appointement!

“Fantastic Resturant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Thanks to the helpful reviews on TripAdvisor, we choose to eat at Maldaner's while in Springfield. This is definitely a classy place, could be a great place for a romantic evening. However, I was in town with my dad and we were in casual clothes, so the mood didn't quite fit, but there was some nice outdoor seating we choose that was awesome. Our servers were attentive, and the food was unbelievable!
