“Solid food in a great small town Main Street Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Staying in the Springfield VT area for a couple days of shopping "R & R" and the local hotel recommended this restaurant. Was not disappointed as I had a very tasty "veal 56" as my wife had the house salad with the pan seared scallops. Both were quite good if not slightly overlooked- that's probably the only reason we didn't rate all categories a 5. The staff was extremely cordial and the selection of specialty drinks and local microbrews was refreshing. An eclectic yet cool small town New England venue makes this a great atmosphere. Well worth a stop and good pricing as well. If we're back here in the future we'll certainly stop in again.

“Great . . . . everything”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Dining choices are very limited in Springfield. This was our first stay in Springfield and we had no clue about finding a place to have dinner. Trip Advisor solved that. This restaurant is rated #1 in Springfield for a reason. The service was great, the food was great, and the price was great. Entree portions were generous and the Veal 56 Main was particularly well prepared.

We had drinks, an appetizer and two entrees for under $70. I was convinced that our waitress had made a mistake on the bill but it was correct.

The restaurant does not take reservations. There were a few people ahead of us when we arrived but we were seated within 5 minutes.

“Very Glad We Found This Place”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

There are not too many places to eat in Springfield, but this is a place that should be experienced. Very good food - hot, tasty and nicely presented. Prices are pretty reasonable. We may go back for dinner again tomorrow night!

“Meal with fiends from California”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We had been out for the day with friends from California. We are from the UK and one of our friends comes from the Springfield area and suggested we give 56 Main a try. Well it was EXCELLENT ! lovely staff who could not do enough and made suggestions on what was really nice etc,. We had seafood, meat, lovely salads and beer and wine - all was great. It was a nice day and people were sitting outside, as there a few tables on the sidewalk. Prices average to above average, but when you're on vacation who cares !! will come again someday.
