“Absolutely Impressive”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This is the original Bass Pro Shops and it's a fantastic place. Even if you don't hunt or fish, it's worth the visit just to see the dioramas and aquariums that they have. If you are a sportsperson, you'll lose yourself for hours looking at all that they have to offer. Hemingway's restaurant is worth the visit, with a good lunch buffet and a good supporting menu. The bar faces a huge salt water aquarium. The staff throughout the store is very friendly and knowledgeable. All in all, BPS is very impressive and extremely well done. Be sure to visit.

“Great place to stop and look around.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Take time to stop and look at everything in the store. There are several fish tanks, birds, alligators, turtles, boats, atvs, clothes, etc.... Perfect stop for the outdoorsy type!

“A must see”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Went here to have lunch at Hamingway's but ended up touring the whole place. It's like being outdoors in the wilderness. There is so much to see that you can spend a couple of hours just walking around looking at the stuffed bears, live fish, alligators, and turtles. You can also shop for outdoor goods.

“All I can say is AWESOME!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

The size alone is awe inspiring. It is huge. There is an area that the kids can view an aquarium with a guide to tell you about the fish in the tank. the tank has a HUGE snapping turtle in it too. A must see if you make it through Springfield, MO

“Shopping and restaurant experience”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We spent some of our free time on our trip to Springfield for a volleyball tournament at Bass Pro Shop. The shop was amazing. There were so many wonderful animals to see througout the shop. We also ate at the restaurant. It was wonderful food and reasonably priced.
