A great place to eat! The service was fantastic along with the food! We did have to wait for about 45 minutes but they gave us a pager and we was able to shop in Bass Pro while waiting. Highly recommended!

We took doe friends there last weekend and it was wonderful. We have been there before but has been a while. It was every bit as good as remembered and even more beautiful. Service is excellent and food absolutely delicious. Huge salad table with everything you would want, an omelet bar with all kinds of good ingredients to choose from,... More

Hadn't been here for years, decided to try it again while out with some friends. Food is fine, but overpriced. Service was okay. Restaurant is located inside Bass Pro, which is always a fun place to visit. After dining, I remembered why I hadn't been here for quite some time. Honestly the food just isn't worth the price in my... More

Inside Springfield's Bass Pro Shop (a destination in itself). They have an excellent buffet with various fish dishes, meats, vegetables. A full soup and salad bar and dessert bar. The food is excellent and the price is modest. Plus if you only want the dessert or salad you can get just those. Also, I think they have a regular menu... More

I visited Springfield recently on a business trip, and a local person told me about the restaurant. I had the buffet. It was good, but not outstanding. However, I did think it was a good value since the salad bar and desert were included. Lots to look at...huge aquarium, overlooks scene in Bass Pro Shop. It's certainly an entertaining place...

Stopped here at a volleyball tournament, and visited the Bass Pro Shops 3 times while we were there. Decided to eat dinner at Hemingways and weren't disappointed. They are more of an upscale dining place. I had the bacon wrapped salmon and was not disappointed. One daughter had the salad bar, the other had shrimp and pasta, and the wife... More

The last time we were there (2014) the food and service were terrible and I vowed to never eat there again. But our daughters were visiting to celebrate their birthdays so we decided to tray Hemingway's again. In a word the food was terrific, the Sunday buffet was loaded with fresh, tasty food, and my hamburger was cooked to perfection.... More

We stopped here for dinner while overnight in Springfield. I enjoyed the buffet which was delicious and my husband had an entree with which he was very happy. Fun to explore the Bass Pro Shop before or after the meal!
