Many restaurants have popped up here and there as the place to go for good food. Not many have survived to tell the story of Maldaners. A little background- Maldaners is Springfield's oldest restaurant, opened in the 1880s and has been in their current location...More

I like eating at Maldaner's. Linens on the tables and professional staff always make it a treat. Being short on time last week I asked for help in selecting a quick lunch. The soup and half sandwich was a terrific choice. The clam chowder was...More

Had a wonderful meal sitting outside on a beautiful evening! Doesn't get much better than this. I had the 6oz filet and my coworker had the ribeye. They both were cooked as asked and delicious! However, the cold shrimp cucumber soup stole the show!

This restaurant could use some updating but the service was good and we enjoyed the food. We were pleasantly surprised to get a visit from the man himself Abe Lincoln stopped by to say hi and talk for a bit.

Maldaner's has been one of Springfield's best restaurants for as long as I have lived here (more than 30 years). It has been around a lot longer than that, as reflected in its décor. Warm and dignified, you should dress in a respectful manner. This...More
