Civil Kitchen is located on Park Central Sq. in downtown Springfield. It's a fun restuant with an ecclectic menu. There are items such as chicken and doughnuts with gravy. Huge doughnut and delicious. Sounds strange but it's really good. There are many other dishes to...More

Great reviews. Good food. Little things add up..... The menu clearly states that “starters and wine by the glass is all discounted between four and 530” and we purposely asked before ordering and were told that it did apply. The check came and nothing had...More
