The restaurant was clean, nestled in downtown Springfield. the server could have been a little more friendlier however, the catfish was by far the best that I have ever eaten! The staff took extra care in concern to covid lots of hand sanitizer, restrictions to...the once self service salad and soup bar.More

Went to Mordecias's on our Inn Keeper's recommendation and found the steaks, service, and cleanliness were great. Their Covid-19 restrictions were also in place.

We ordered take out during Covid while we were staying at the Wildflower Ranch Inn in Springfield. The food was hot, tasty, and offered an incredible variety. Thumbs up!

Located inside an old store in the downtown area, this is a little gem. On Sunday, they have a medium size brunch buffet. The buffet has breakfast and lunch items. The breakfast part includes bacon and eggs. The lunch part includes fried chicken.

Our innkeeper recommended Mordecai’s and were glad that she did! The food was excellent and the service was great! If you are anywhere near Springfield, we highly recommend stopping in for a bite at Mordecai’s!

I actually wasn’t expecting Mordecai’s to still have the lunch buffet even though certain restrictions have been lifted for restaurants during the waning days of the virus threat. OK, there’s new rules-an employee with mask and gloves will actually get the food for you in...order to meet safety regulations. I can live with that. Mordecai’s is my go to place after visiting the nearby Perryville Battlefield State Historic site. Service is always friendly and prompt.More

My husband and I was staying at a bed and breakfast to celebrate our Anniversary. We didn't want to go out so we call Mordecai's to make a carryout order. Even though it was carryout the food was delicious!! We have eaten at this restaurant...a couple times before with friends and every time it has been delicious!! Will definitely go back again when we are in Springfield!!More

Sorry didn’t pay attention to that detail. I’d just give them a call.
