“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

This is a great place to have a pint or lunch/dinner with that pint! The famous Springfield Horseshoe is (almost) more than can be eaten at one sitting. It is truly big...and delicious! Thinly sliced beef covered in a very pleasant cheese sauce and topped with hot french fries. What could be better? While a bit out of the way, it's worth the trip.

“Best Place for Horseshoes in Springfield”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Growing up in Springfield, I tried a lot of horseshoes, but my favorite place for them in D'Arcys. Pretty much whenever you go, there will be a wait, but they keep it moving pretty quickly, and it is always well worth waiting for! My favorite is the buffalo chicken ponyshoe (which is plenty big!) The chili cheeseburger ponyshoe is also delicious if you're looking for a specialty shoe! When I was a vegetarian, I loved their veggie shoe--it had huge mushrooms, onions, and peppers, and was absolutely delicious. Their fried mushrooms are amazing, and they have a huge selection of beers on draft. If you're in Springfield, plan on trying a D'Arcy's horseshoe!

“Very average and a little disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We like to visit places that others have enjoyed, and we like to sample local cuisine. D'arcy's Pint seemed as if it would be a good fit for our family. The "horseshoe" was really nothing fancy, and was 85% French fries and bread, 10% cheese, and 5% meat. The atmosphere was also nothing special. The creamy mushroom soup was the best thing we had and it tasted like something I could make myself. Decent, but we won't be back.
