If you are not from this area, you have to try the Horse shoe (smaller version is called the pony shoe). This is a local food tradition, however this restaurant serves the best one in town!!

Darcys best compliment is that you feel like you aren't in Springfield. It has a polished, professional feel with excellent food and a good wait staff. My biggest issue is that I cannot decide whether to get walleye or a horse shoe when there; both are great. Really enjoy the place, visit after visit.

Yes, there may likely be a wait for a table if you go to D'arcy's Pint. The food is quite good and they have one of the best horseshoe sandwiches in Springfield. Service is always friendly even though the servers are constantly on the move. When going with a group, everyone seems to find something they want on the menu.... More

The Horseshoe is the best in town, but the menu has a lot of great selections. I have tried most of the items on the menu and have never been disappointed. The service staff is great and very friendly. There is sometime a wait to get in to eat, but it is well worth the wait.

This is a great restaurant and is moderately priced! All food is very good, but I especially like the horseshoes! It is a very popular place, so you may have to wait a little while.

Whenever I am in Springfield, I HAVE TO GO TO D'ARCY's!! This is not negotiable. We had 2 appetizers: stuffed mushrooms and fried portabella mushrooms. Both were great. The fried portabella tasted like Morel Mushrooms. Awesome! My wife had the reuben, I had the ham horseshoe, my niece had the buffalo horseshoe. All were good and we had to roll... More

D'arcy's has the best horseshoes in town! Their regular cheese sauce is great and their spicy cheese sauce is awesome! Try ordering you horseshoe without the bread.....that way you get to eat all the yummy cheese since it doesn't soak into the bread! I love the Supreme shoe with the crumbled hamburger, bacon, tomato and onion....just so very tasty! I... More

Had meals here this week two days in a row. Had the fish n chips the first day with walleye. It came with plenty of thin sliced onions, two pieces of marble rye bread, 3 big pieces of walleye, cole slaw, and french fries. Plenty to eat and the fish was cooked perfectly. Second day I had the Irish cheese... More

Very popular and busy restaurant in Springfield. We were seated within 15 minutes. I ordered the half-pound bacon blue hamburger and it was juicy and very tasty. Also had the steak potato soup. My party had the BLT which was good and the bacon was heaping and abundant.
