I used to visit this restaurant at least once a week, but as of late I have noticed a change in management that has caused prices to go up three times in the past year. The most recent visit I was presented with a dirty dining room, dirty salad bar with multiple items taken away, and only one decent pizza... More

I love the way Godfather's pizza tastes but it's so expensive. It's well worth the cost though. A couple times pizza took a couple of hours & was cold, but generally pizza delivered under an hour but still cold. Friendly staff, Friendly delivery people.

The price included ice cream and desserts. Now for the staff. I have been to so many places that no one cares, but not here. The... More

There was not just pizza. There was chicken and all the fixings. As well as a decent salad bar. The pizzas were fresh and plentiful

I worked at Godfather's in college and almost every vacation we end up at a Godfather's someplace (we don't have them in St. Louis). I've longed for the pizza for years and miss it. The last few times the pizza was worse and worse... this time, the pizza was tasteless, the buffet was old and gross. The desserts were fantastic... More

Love the buffet-excellent price. Staff is courteous each time we go. I had not had Godfather's pizza since I was a kid, so when we moved to Springfield 9 months ago, I was super excited to go there!!!

Godfather's is a bit for expensive for pizza but no one leaves feeling as though they did not get enough to eat. It is predictably good food and service is outstanding.
