“Nothing to write home about”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Greasy food & slow, unfriendly service for a relatively high price. Sorry - this restaurant is just not worth it :(

“Did not care for Pizza”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere was nice and the service was good. We ordered the Chicago style meat pizza, it was so thick and heavy, had very little cheese. Just a few bites and we were stuffed. I know some just live this pizza but I just didn't care for it.

“Would love to write a great review, but....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We came in with a large group and our waitress was outstanding. Here comes the but.... The cooler went out and beer was not cold. Some of our orders were wrong, some of our bills were totally wrong and my husband was given a glass with lipstick on it. Yuck. But food was really good and the atmosphere was nice

“Excellent Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I wanted to take a close friend out for her birthday and I suggested we go here. The atmosphere was lively and service excellent. We each ordered something new to us and were completely satisfied. The staff did a nice birthday cake for her,(pre arranged by me and the manager). She was a little shy, but liked that attention anyway.
When in Springfield, I will visit again, birthday or not.

“Not Chicago-style, but good deep dish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Good pizza, especially their thick crust. The buffet is good, but somewhat small. There are usually 3-4 pizza types available and breadsticks. There are two seating options- the bar area and a general dining area.
