Found this charming restaurant as we were heading to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum & Library. I loved the setting in this historical home. We noticed on the way in to town that the parking lot was quite full at lunchtime. So on our way out of town we decided to stop for dinner. Again, very busy for a tuesday at 6pm. I understand why. Great service,very good food & reasonably priced. It was a very nice ending to our quick trip to historical Springfield.

This is an old favorite in the area, and for midwestern seafood, isn't bad. Service was very friendly and fast, selection is good, and the food was average. Prices were very reasonable for early evening. Area doesn't have a lot of good choices, so this was a good choice. Would eat there again, and recommend, but don't expect 4 star dining.

We loved the appetizers (oysters Rockefeller, stuffed mushrooms and escargot). I had the bay platter with lobster tail. Shrimp, scallops and lobster were excellent. The orange roughy was not great. This was the only item our group didn't like. The restaurant has an old feel. We found it to be unique and interesting. So much better than the the chain restaurants you can find anywhere. $6.99 or $8.99 for these kinds of appetizers? I'm not urge how anyone could call that expensive these days.

The restaurant sits on a lovely yard, surrounded by beautiful, huge trees that are lit up at night. We had to wait, as we had not made a reservation and it was Saturday night. We ordered the stuffed shrimp as our appetizer and it was delicious. We both had steaks that were tender and flavorful. Baked potatoes were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Service was attentive but not in your face. While it is not cheap, it is worth it for a good meal with great service.

Be prepared to wait a bit, but food and service are excellent. I have to remember to "enjoy the ride" as we travel life's highway. All aspects are well done. A very nice return to olden days of service and quality.
