We stopped here on the way to St. Louis on a recommendation from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. We really wanted to try the horseshoe sandwich/dish and we did. I had the Irish Cheesesteak and my husband had the weekly special (bbq chicken). Man, was it good. Our advice, don't start with too many of the fries, go to the meat... More

This place is always packed with a wait, so we only go when out of town relatives insist. The horseshoe is good as well as a lot of other items on the menu. Fun atmosphere if you like the crowded pub thing.

We met my nephew for lunch on Sunday afternoon. Very hustle and bustle atmosphere. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating and the food was very good. I had the Shepherds Pie which is only available on Sundays. I attached a picture. My only complaint is that I didn't get my salad before my meal. Bummer.she put the food down and... More

Tried this on our way through town because I have heard so many good things about it. Got there and it was a 40 min wait so we opted for carryout instead. Ordered 2 horseshoes and they were ready before I even signed the credit card receipt. It was super fresh and delish. If you love fries and cheese sauce,... More

The reviews were very good. True to review, half hour wait on a Friday a little after six. Total comfort food with the Shepherds pie. Two orders of the horseshoe pony size. One chili cheese dog and the Buffalo chicken. Oh the cheese sauce was yummy. Reminded me of shake shack cheese fries. Everyone said yes to coming again when... More

Early dinner and the place was pretty full. We were seated right next to the kitchen door (someone needs to sit there!), yuck! My margarita had NO flavor and tasted like it had no alcohol either. Very disappointing for a bar! One of our party had a bacon cheeseburger which was good, another had the chili hot dog, which was... More

I love this place. the food is always good. I had the tenderloin with fries. My daughter had a hamburger pony shoe. The cheese they use on the pony shoes is the best I've tasted. Service is friendly and prompt. The menu is a mix of American and Irish foods.

When in Springfield, I always make a stop at D'arcy's Pint. Great food in a casual, fun atmosphere, for a good price is their calling card. Service is fast and exceptional. You won't find a better Horseshoe anywhere!

Perfect horseshoe! Always get the specials. Great themed area, with outdoor seating. Always busy but that means its good eats!

You always get good service and good food at D'Arcy's. The bar is fun and comfortable. The famous Springfield specialty horseshoe is great. Warning, don't think you can find much of anything healthy here! Be ready to indulge. Worth visiting.
