The coconut shrimp is very good, but that is all we can say. The fries were too salty and the fried fish was just okay. Overall the food is overpriced.

This was our second visit to Hemingways. It is a fairly upscale restaurant located upstairs in the Bass Pro Shop. They have an huge tropical fish aquarium behind the bar. On the first visit we ate from the buffet. On this visit, we ordered from the menu. The buffet was the usual buffet fare and way too much food. Ordering... More

The service has always been top notch. The dinner buffet prices are very high and our family of 6 could not afford to eat here. Lunch however, is very reasonable and most days you get a great variety of foods and the quality is as good as dinner. We have been once when they did not have fried catfish but... More

Very good brunch menu and buffet. Being located inside the bass pro shop is convenient and the ambiance is wonderful. The regular menu items are a bit pricey so I suggest the buffet which is also a bit pricey but does have a good selection of food.

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

Glad to hear you enjoyed the food. Sorry for the slightly increased pricing but we hope you understand the amount of overhead there is running such a fantastic facility including our 30,000 gallon fish tank. It makes such a wonderful atmosphere here inside our must see Springfield destination superstore! 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...
