This is a nice place to go for an adult family dinner. There are many options on the menu. Our table ordered two types of pizzas from the authentic brick pizza oven, a french dip sandwich plate, and a meatloaf dinner. I would have given it a higher rating but I had ordered the same pizza for lunch a couple... More

This restaurant does not seem to match the description of what I have read in other reviews! It looked fairly new, was clean and our food was good. Lauren, our server was good and efficient. Prices here are higher than I would have expected, but they were so busy, I guess that isn't an issue for others? It's near the... More

We have been coming to Lake Point on and off for 7 years. Mainly because it's close to home. Each time, something is wrong with the meal. It is extremely inconsistent. We are done. Just a few days ago I got the streak pizza...there were 4 small pieces of thin meat on this over priced pizza. I'm done.

I've been to this restaurant several times, and we used to love their Italian style pizza with a thin crust. For quite some time this was the only place where you could find it in Springfield. It also has a nice array of international cuisine and other Italian pasta favorites. The quality of the place has gone down in the... More

Sunday dinner on a clear Fall day. Lake Pointe Grill had some recommendations by friends so we stopped in. Not quite what I expected. Noisy, drab inside, not all that clean. More like a cafeteria than a restaurant or 'grill'. We stayed to give it the benefit of the doubt. The imported pizza oven, which was touted so heavily on... More

After leaving the Springfield, Illinois Route 66 car show, we stopped at a local restaurant just outside Springfield. In looking aroun,d it looked like the portions were of a healthy size. My wife and I decided to split a menu item called the Horseshoe. It was more than enough for two people and we also ordered soup prior the meal.... More

A group of 6 family members stopped by mid-afternoon on a Sunday after the lunch rush. We were in town for college soccer games.Anita was our server and was very friendly and helpful. To start, we tried the spinach artichoke dip and sesame and panko encrusted shrimp and both hit the mark. We had a variety of foods for lunch:... More

This is a very nice, casual, restaurant/bar that has a fun atmosphere and good food. We usually sit at the bar and have always had excellent service sitting there. The food is above average, but pricey for what you get. I had the gumbo, which is over $16 for the bowl and two extremely small pieces of corn bread. I'm... More

We went to the Lake Pointe Grill on the last night of our visit to our daughter and son in law. The food was excellent the staff were very friendly and accommodating. This is a family friendly place and would go again if it weren't so far away!

I've been to Lake Pointe a dozen times or so. It's always been stellar! Great service and great food. My favorite all time salad is the apple jack: Granny Smith apples, bleu cheese crumbles and crusted pecans- it's like eating a work of art! Last time I went they offered the half and half portion deal- half apple Jack and... More
