This restaurant was recommended to me for a place to get a quality chicken fried stead. I was not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I will visit this restaurant again.

Fried catfish special was excellent (according to those in my group) and the sides were average. I don't eat fish so I ordered the grilled cheese. It was a simple but good. Very clean, waitress was attentive and kept our glasses full. Nice family restaurants recents prices. I will come back.

This is not a fancy place. However the food is great. It is comfort food like mom made. The prices are almost too low. Went for dinner and would love to go back for breakfast.

Great selection on the menu. The chicken fried steak is great, although it is actually pork that it breaded and fried. The wait staff is very friendly. Don't let the appearance of the surroundings/building turn you away. Well worth it.

Every time I visit Springfield I hit up Cedar's and they unfailingly have great service, atmosphere and food. My favorite is the chicken fried steak with fries, green beans and rolls. Yummmm!!! If you are looking for a really good, filling meal, on the cheap but doesn't taste that way, definitely come here :)

I have never been here before, but met a friend there for breakfast. This place has been here for a while and it has its regular clientele, and yes its pretty busy. Staff are very polite, and very friendly. This place is older, but very clean. I can drink coffee like no one's business and they have really good coffee.... More

Thank you Trip Advisor posters...you all helped us find a fabulous breakfast here at Cedars. I had the Cedars western omelet and added cheese and onions to my hash browns. My friend had the Black Friday steak & egg special, and grits. The restaurant was full. So much so that you had to sit at a dirty table, but the... More

We decided to stop at Cedars and join most of their older clientele for an early dinner (before 5:00 PM). And, boy, they know where to go for quality at a crazy-low price! Our 2 country fried (pork) steak dinners were on special for $5.99 each. We each added a small salad bar for $1.99 and had 2 iced teas.... More

came for lunch around 11am on Sunday and I think we must have hit their peak time. Place was packed. TO be honest, I was a little hesitant to eat here as the place doesn't do much to be inviting on the outside and we saw a lot of motorcycles in the lot. Had images of some seedy greasy café....
