This has been my go to place for lunch after a visit to Perryville Historic Battlefield. At $10.99 for a buffet lunch that’s an inexpensive as it gets. Service has always been pleasant and friendly. It’s basic buffet style food do don’t expect truly extraordinary...but it’s filling and perfect after a day of exploring the battlefield. It’s a busy place and seems popular with most of the locals.More

We are out of towners and visited on a Friday night. None of us chose the seafood buffet. Bar was also just average. This restaurant just seems 'tired', it could be great with a little love.

Typicallly the food here is of good quality but my recent experience with carry out was less than desirable. No side was given with the shrimp tacos and the salad was mostly core of the lettuce head. No balsamic vinaigrette was added to my salad...significantly diminishing the enjoyment of what should have been a very nice candied pecan salad. Let’s hope they can pick up their game. Shrimp tacos were very good though the taco shells were a little on the dry side.More

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.

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
