I went to this restaurant with 4!friends for the first time. We arrived as the restaurant just opened at 11:00 am. First customers of the day. We were asked to move out of the aisle and wait around the cirner while our table was prepared. As soon as we saw the servers push 2 tables together we headed to the... More

I've known the owners for several years and they know their business. They purchased this cafe from the previous owner quite a while ago and have carried on the tradition and improved upon it to boot! Nearly Famous has always been known for their Deli Tomato soup and salads and pastas. However I'm crazy about their Egg Salad Sandwich, but... More

My personal favorite lunch spot. Just across from the mall. Best lunch for both time & money. The food is fresh & excellent! My personal fave is the daily quiche & a bowl of Nearly Famous Tomato Bisque. Arrive by 11:30 for lunch or be prepared to wait in line for a table.

Prices range from approximately $4 for a small soup to $22 for a Peppercorn Steak meal. Most plates are in the $7-$10 range. The staff was friendly and attentive. I... More

We discovered Nearly Famous when a local magazine wrote a paragraph on it. We enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The food was great and the personnel were very friendly.

My family and I have dined at Nearly Famous for years . Tomato soup , Nearly famous Chef salad and the Deli Delight sandwich are can't miss dishes. Wait staff is always friendly and very helpful. We are never disappointed and look forward to each visit. One of the few local restaurants left. God bless America 🇺🇸

We ate lunch here and the food was very good. Also had the "trifecta" for dessert, lemon bar, pecan bar, and brownie with pecans. Really enjoyed talking to three of the staff. Great place to visit. If we lived in Springfield, this would become a regular place for us.

I recently stopped in for lunch with family because it was convenient to our shopping trip. I was surprised at how busy the place was. It was absolutely packed (with senior citizens) and we had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. I had been very disappointed by my last visit to Nearly Famous and was hopeful that the... More
