First let me say our waiter Chris was superb, flawless! Wedge salad and Bijon Salad were perfect. Loved the Medallions with maple and the Bijon shrimp. Great, quiet atmosphere.

We weren't sure what to expect from a holiday buffet at Touch...we were pleasantly surprised! The smoked brisket, ham, and turkey were absolutely fabulous. Grease green beans with sautéed bacon and onions, Caesar salad and a twist on traditional stuffing. There was so much more to choose from as well as a decadent dessert bar. We would definitely do it... More

Met family in Springfield and we all thoroughly enjoyed the non-traditional Thanksgiving buffet at Touch. Loved the funky atmosphere. Service was nice and our server very friendly. I hope to return for a relaxing dinner.

Had a fabulous meal. Touch makes Lobster Bisque to die for. It was incredibly creamy and had huge lobster chunks. Delicious. (And, I'm originally from the coast of Maine - a nice small lobster fishing village so I know my lobster dishes!) Then, I had Chilean Sea Bass encrusted with Cashews and Pecans. The piece of fish was huge. It... More

Best happy hour in town - great drinks and bar service, along with excellent appetizer plates and scrumptious cold seafood bar , try the shrimp cocktail and fried calamari ! Dinner is just as excellent, superb knowledgeable wait staff, food is hard to beat. Same amazing owner/chef as Flame and Black Sheep.

Make sure you are hungry & thirsty prior to arrival. The app's are great, the entrée was excellent and the dessert makes a great evening experience to share with friends.

Steak Tatar, Oysters Rockefeller, Walleye Tacos, Ceviche and a dozen other options all on the menu for around $10 . My new hangout, dont know if I will ever make it to the main dining hall. They are owned by Flame so I am sure it is good. Skimpy dresses on the cocktail staff! .

This is a wonderful restaurant. We had my son's wedding rehearsal dinner here and it was a marvelous experience. The food was great (bacon-wrapped dates!) and the service was exemplary. A wonderful venue for a rehearsal dinner, retirement party, or a date for two. A classy place and highly recommend it!

We eat there every so often--it just isn't near where we live--but it is always very good. Last night we met friends and chose a table in the bar rather than in the restaurant. The ambiance was just as good or better (and the décor is very nice) Same menu for dinner in both. Service in both is very good.... More
