Description: Augie’s Front Burner is a locally owned, owner operated dining establishment that has served the Springfield area since 1997. Owner August Mrozowski is committed to offering all of his guests an exceptional, casual yet elegant, dining experience. A proud supporter of local businesses and local farmers, Augie’s Front Burner also offers catering for parties and special events.August Mrozowski, owner and chef of Augie’s Front Burner, started his culinary career in Springfield at the age of 13. Following in his father’s footsteps, he developed a passion for the culinary arts and worked at the Cafe L'Europe in Sarasota Florida for 19 years. In 1992, August opened his own restaurant, and in 1997 he returned home where he opened Augie’s Front Burner in Springfield. Augie’s overriding desire is to present his guests with the freshest and most interesting products available on the market. A strong supporter of other local businesses, Augie can be spotted weekly in the local farmers’ markets; he makes a point of knowing the best seasonal items that are available and creates his menus around those products. August’s creative flair can clearly be seen when it comes to his food presentation. He believes that fine dining is a multi-sensory experience, and he ensures that each plate is constructed and garnished beautifully so that when it arrives at the table, diner’s are ready to take in a flavorful, texture-filled culinary delight.

Service can be brusque but special are interesting and the crabcakes are always delicious. Also if you're vegetarian try the blackbean cakes or even if you're not try them. Ask for extra sourcream & salsa. Good lunch spot. Interior decor interesting in an offbeat way. In downtown Springfield it's one of the best for lunch.

Our evening started well with salad and appetizer but then we waited and waited and waited for our dinners. After 45 minutes we stopped the waiter and he said they had a big group downstairs but our food would be ready soon. Another 15 minutes went by and we asked again that he check on our food only to be told that he had asked several times. Another wait and we left with no apology, no manager contact, no food.
