A couple of questions about dining and a ghost tour

Our party of three adults is visiting the area for two nights next month and we're looking for something to do on a Friday evening. Has anyone had any experiences with the below company and their walking tour? Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Also, we'll need somewhere for Friday dinner and Saturday lunch. Saturday, we plan to see the Lincoln Museum and Library and perhaps another site or two if we have time. (We're attending a wedding in Decatur Saturday evening.) I think, from what I've read, that this tour and perhaps the sites we want to see are in the downtown Springfield area. Is this correct? If so, does anyone have any recommendations for a casual lunch and dinner. Somewhere local would be great. I've looked at the restaurant reviews on here, but I'm not completely clear on what's local and what's casual.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks. They all sound good, especially Charlie Parker's since hubby thinks breakfast is the best meal of the day! Is Dr. of BBQ really, really good? Being from Memphis, we're used to even bad bbq being quite good.
