This place is a more formal option. Not stuffy, but not a jeans type place. White linen tablecloths. Full bar and smoking section(it's own room) and same size non-smoking section. Only negative is bathrooms are up stairs. They have banquet rooms available. The food is wonderful. On the higher end of the price range in Springfield. Lunch is not too bad but dinner is pretty pricey. But the food is never a disappointment, so it would be a good date place. You will probably need reservations for dinner. Lunch is walk-in first come first served. I've never had a bad meal there. Steaks, chicken, duck, pork, and lots of fresh fish items. Great less common vegetables too. Fine cheeses, wines and liquors make this a favorite of the political crowd as well as the business types.
