We went to the Lake Pointe Grill on the last night of our visit to our daughter and son in law. The food was excellent the staff were very friendly and accommodating. This is a family friendly place and would go again if it weren't so far away!

I've been to Lake Pointe a dozen times or so. It's always been stellar! Great service and great food. My favorite all time salad is the apple jack: Granny Smith apples, bleu cheese crumbles and crusted pecans- it's like eating a work of art! Last time I went they offered the half and half portion deal- half apple Jack and... More

Many families were here enjoying an evening out, so bring the kids! The lounge is cozier but I had a great time dining by myself in the main area. Rib eye was excellent, very complete wine, beer, and cocktail list.

Visited with my wife as we were staying nearby overnight during a mid-west road trip.Our young waiter, Jacob, was friendly and attentive and our meals were very nice (I had the lasagna with side salad). The place was pleasant with a nice atmosphere.

I have always enjoyed the food at Lake Pointe, but the last two times have been a disaster. Both times 3 of the 4 meals came out on time, however mine came the first time 1/2 hour late and the second 45 minutes late after others at the table were finished eating. I made a fool of myself with my... More

In town for golf tournament and stopped for a beer and pizza. 6 beers on draft, nothing really dark so I asked to sample one and was forewarned by the very good barkeep that samples cost $2. I asked to make that pizza to go. Not a good business move owner of Lake Pointe Grill. I won't be back.

Based on the reviews I had expected an exceptional experince, but was a little disappointed. Our server must have been new as I ordered a salad with our pasta and it came out with the entree. Kitchen seemed slow but that might have been because I was anxious for my salad. Some of the staff were just leaning around which... More

Nothing fancy about Lake Pointe Grill. However, it's casual atmosphere makes it a good place for a relaxing, friendly meal. The service was great. I had the rib special and my husband had a wood fire oven pizza. The ribs, beans and slaw were delicious. The ribs were meaty and succulent. I don't usually care for restaurant slaw but this...

We were in Springfield for a family trip and checked Tripadvisor for a restaurant that had ahi tuna. Lake Pointe Grill had great reviews so we decided to give it a try and we are so glad we did. The sesame encrusted ahi tuna was delicious. My husband had the stuffed meatloaf and said it was delicious. The frozen strawberry... More

We arrived at Lake Point Grill at 8:30 on a Saturday evening. We were promptly seated. Our server took our beverage orders which we received in a timely manner. Our food was ordered and served. Everything was delicious. The only downside was our server. She seemed in a big hurry to be through for the night even though the restaurant... More
