Civil Kitchen is one of our favorites! My husband and I have been there several times and it is always good. This year, we even chose Civil Kitchen as our Valentine’s date night restaurant. The Crab Beignet appetizers are amazing! I always get the crispy...brussel spouts as a side and WOW! The entrees are always on point, as well. The service is very good. I asked for a non-alcoholic, fun drink and they made something super tasty and unique. They have lots of local beers on the menu as well. The atmosphere is cool and trendy, located right off the square in downtown Springfield.More

We stopped in after reading great reviews on this place. We had some time before catching our flight. What a great decision! Great food. Wait staff was awesome.

This restaurant is located in downtown Springfield and is the perfect stop for someplace casual with friends or family. I ordered a lavender flavored vodka, portobello mushroom sandwich and some Mac and cheese and was highly satisfied with each item. They have indoor and outdoor...seating and are staffed with very friendly people.More

The food didn’t blow me away but it was above average for sure. Their beer and cocktail list was extensive. Our waiter was super nice and the service was exceptional. The overall vibe there was great! I would definitely go back.

Was immediately greeted and seated....It was happy hour so got the wings and they were more than a meal for me. Aspen was our server (very sweet). She was great at helping choose from their huge menu selection and extensive bar list. Great vibe!

Food was good, maybe a little too sweet on many aspects. Small salad was a great size and burgers were satisfying.

My man and I were in Springfield for the weekend and we ate here late on Friday night when we were looking for somewhere that still had an open kitchen. He was familiar with this place so suggested we go there. We arrived shortly after...10pm and sat in the back bar area. Our server (bartender) was not welcoming nor was she familiar with the menu. He was planning to order wings and asked about the Civil Sauce and she gave him a blank stare. (The sauce has their name in it...shouldn't she know about it?) She was super low energy (maybe she had a long day?) and we had to repeat things a few times to her. Our meals were good and I would be willing to give it another chance to see if we just had bad luck on the service.More

Agree. CK has the space. Flame Steakhouse downtown, also would be a good bet. For more casual (but great food!), I'd try Black Sheep Burger
