The wings are great and so are the horseshoes. The atmosphere is also unlike any other with all of the outdoorsman like items it is very unique and if you like to hunt or fish you will surely enjoy it. The menu is also very unique because they have wild game on it!

Probably the best wings in Springfield. Wild game atmosphere is fun but can be noisy. Service was excellent. Gaming area separated in back room so not to bother diners. Everything from wild game to salads and burgers. Lots of Specialty beers as well.

We had eaten here years ago on a visit to family & decided to give it another try because it is so different & there is something for almost everyone. We visited on a busy Thursday evening and the place was hopping. I had a large grilled portabella mushroom with wild rice and grilled veggies - really hit the spot.... More

We visited for a frien's birthday, and had a great time. The staff was terrific. Very helpful and small-town friendly. This is a very interesting menu with much to offer. We tried tried 4 different appetizers (duck egg rolls, nachos, pine cones, and onion rings). They were all very tasty, especially the duck & nachos. I chose the rib special,... More

We got a positive recommendation for this restaurant from a local. Arrived on a Saturday late afternoon to find it half full and quiet. By the time we left, it was nearly full and loud. There are lots of menu choices that all sound delightful. We had a chicken salad (just OK, with overcooked vegetables) and an elk burger (unexciting,... More

After eating a bison burger back in Florida I thought I would try another here since my aunt recommended this restaurant and took me here. Instead, I had a tough choice between the elk burger and the kodiak burger. I decided on the elk burger and it blew my mind away. So did the interior of the restaurant with the... More

We were only in Springfield for a day while on a road trip and I read about this place on Trip Advisor. If you are in the area it is definitely worth stopping by. The main appeal to us was that they served alligator, frog legs, and crawdads...something we had never had before. What we found was a fun atmosphere... More

Westwoods has the best variety of wild game oriented/inspired food you can find. If you want a break from ordinary burgers and typical meals this is the place to go! Elk Burgers, Duck egg rolls, Bison Burgers or just regular old beef burgers, they are all great! Wings are AWESOME here with many varieties to choose from. Really cool decor... More
