“So impressed on all levels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

My sister and I live in Springfield and do a weekly dinner ou. We had heard of the Lime Street Cafe but had never tried it for whatever reason. We visited on a Friday night at 5pm and our server was Rosie. She was sweet, genuine, and very attentive to all of our needs. We both enjoyed both our meals. It was probably one of the best hamburgers I've ever had (and reasonably priced)

We had such a good experience, that we returned last night, exactly 1 week later. As we walked in, Rosie was again waitressing and said "oh, you girls came back...Miller 64 and a coffee??"

We had only been there 1 time, and she remembered from an entire week ago what we ordered to drink. Then, for our meal, we told her when ordering that we were going to split an appetizer and the burger and fries. When the meal itself arrived, she brought out 2 plates portioned for each of us: burger, fries, tomato, pickle....everything had been perfectly separated so we each had half!!!! What amazing service. She is the best waitress I have ever had anywhere ever!!!

“Family Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

My family has been going to this restaurant at least twice a month for the past 3 years. It is close to town and easy to access, plus it is a totally hadicapped friendly property. We love going here to catch up because the atmosphere is quiet, peaceful, and homey. The food always exceeds our expectations and we always are happy to see the wait staff's smiling faces. This location is a little more upscale for dining, bey they also have a more low-key bar area for casual lunches or dinners.
I recommend this location to anyone and I really depend on it's great food to welcome me every time I visit Springfield.

“Bad Attitude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

The manager or owner was quite rude to one of my husband's cousins during a visit. She was seating a couple, and asked the cousin to move his chair. He is mostly deaf. We signaled to him to move, but he didn't move fast enough for her. She physically moved his chair while he was in it. When we told her to take it easy, she asked our large party to leave. Some of the family members were frequent patrons, so this treatment was very surprising. We will not return to this restaurant.
