We went to the American Harvest Eatery because we saw a good review. It was in a strip mall but it wasn't your typical strip mall eatery. We got there early and snagged a table. By the time we left it was packed with people waiting. The wait staff was excellent. They had fancy cocktails and good wines. The food... More

I am involved in our local Farmers' Market so when we travel, I am delighted to find restaurants serving local products. That's how the American Harvest Eatery was billed when we checked into a motel in Springfield, Illinois. The menu offered appetizers, entrees and desserts but our experience has been that we should go for the entree to be able... More

The Chef and his wife the sous chef are a young couple in their late 20's who are presenting dishes with fresh ingredients in combinations usually not found in the average Springfield restaurants. The food here always reminds me how good imaginative young chefs are. Plus, they also have good craft beer.

A favorite dinner spot that is clearly slipping. I am not a fan of the new menu. At my last visit (I have been there many times) the potatoes we not hot. Servers had far to many tables. And I was cold! Also much of the restaurant to to dark. I will give them another try but something has changed... More

I was in town from Chicago and my sister suggested we go to American Harvest - it was outstanding. Our server was attentive and engaging. Everyone in our party was raving about how good their food was. Can't wait to back next time!!

Everthing is fresh and locally bought. I've lived in Springfield my whole life and this is my first time visitng American Harvest and I am upsetting I've been missing out for so long! The atmosphere was laid back and comfortable. Sat at the bar, but the tables were spaced nicely so you wouldn't feel crowded if the restaurant was busy.... More

We all loved the various dishes we had. Tomato and peach salad, smoked wings appetizer, corn ravioli, chicken, and crisp burger as entrees.

The so called "foodie" and "wine Connoisseurs" must be used to McDonalds or some such place if they have to complain so much. In our opinion this is a real restaurant for real people with real food. When people constantly nag and complain, waiters become indifferent. For us poor little out of towners, the place was great. My wife and... More

We always support locally owned restaurants with local food, but sadly this one is off the list. Wine of the month was unknown to waiter, slow coming and corked. Took it to bar personally where bartender said it wasn't corked. Breakfast salad was great but they brought us two when we requested a split. Butterfish was over cooked although sides... More

Portions are hearty, plan accordingly. My husband and I wish we hadn't ordered the appetizer! We both took at least half of our entrées home. Too much food! Tip number one: split a salad. Tip number two: don't get an appetizer. Tip number three: it's really good food! The good entrées we had: Salmon and knife and fork fried chicken.... More
