What can you say about a tropical place so eclectic, trendy, and soul-reviving? In our opinion, this is the most unique place in the 417! The bartenders are over-the-moon nice and their cocktail menu is beyond captivating. Choose a spot inside or on the charming starry-lit patio and show off your ballin’ tiki mug to all passerbys on the square!
Hold up: Ramen. Tacos. Tiki Masala. *tears of happiness* Honestly, the entire menu is a grand slam which is why we still have a hard time ordering when we go.

Hands down one of the most charming spots in the 417! Their Beer Garden sits along the Galloway Trail so at anytime you’re more than welcome to bike over and cool off with a cold beer and chow down on one of the best burgers you’ll have in town!
Best Bites: We said above the burger, however, the real contender is their hand-breaded pork tenderloin sandwich called “The Tender”. This thing is quite literally bigger than your head. Pair this sammy with SGF famous beer battered fries and you’re sittin’ pretty.
Miller Lite jumbo drafts are $3.75, other great beer specials, and a delightful patio. Be weary, this place is usually packed for lunch and dinner..so be strategic! Enjoy.

Oooh, yes. Sushi + Happy Hour. There’s really no better combination. These local owners love their guests and it shows through every staff member. It’s a great atmosphere and we promise you’ll know at LEAST one person when you walk through the door.
Our favorite: Grilled Sea Scallops appetizer served with asparagus and portabella with a zesty garlic and mirin cream. *gasp* The classic OMG Roll is a Springfield favorite. I mean, who says you can’t bring Vegas to Springfield? Serving food on fire? Yep, Oh My Gawd.

Okay, here’s the thing. If you’re ‘not really a movie person’, you will still love this place. (Also, not really sure what ‘not really a movie person’ means because that’s just ridiculous). Movies are great and so is booze! Backlot has quickly become a local favorite with their massive 48 draft selection, scrumptious menu, and awesome live music. Not to forget, Alamo Drafthouse was voted ‘#1 Theater in America’ by Entertainment Weekly, and now Springfield understands why.
Our Favorite: Their buffalo cauliflower bites are LIFE CHANGING. Also the queso. You should always say yes to queso.
Happy Hour M-F 4-7pm: $1 off all drafts. Don’t miss their Tuesday Trivia with weekly movie-themed trivia and Happy Hour ALL NIGHT!

With now 2 locations, tacos(and tequila) in Springfield are a force to be reckoned with. With margarita specials every single day, the end of your work day just got a lot more enjoyable.

130 years of history for all to enjoy. This special tavern is the oldest in town and has a friendly staff to make you feel right at home. This establishment is notorious for their wide craft beer selection, live music, and unique food menu created by using all local products and flare. A true gem of Springfield.
Swoon: Don’t you dare step foot out of this amazing building without asking about the Chef Special. Warning: It’s typically mind-blowingly delicious. Also, brunch is kind of a big deal. Make sure you try theirs AT LEAST twice! (Because once will make you wish you ordered two items the first go-around). Recommended: Ham & Jam Biscuit or Crab Benedict.
No need for a happy hour here! This classic tavern has everything you’d want to enjoy your after work beverage. Because you deserve it.
