The new spot is definitely cleaner, and more room, but its still just one waitress so service can be a bit slow. I still give it 4 stars as the food is great and the prices still aren't that bad, even though they did raise them a bit.

Still just as good as ever for pizza and pasta, Shepardo's has moved to First Street, at Cook Street. Just a block from the newly reopened State Museum and the Capitol Building Complex. Plenty of parking in a lot and on the street. Try the pizza or any pasta. It is all good.

We came to Springfield to try out the local Shepardo's after we ate great pizza at the Shepardo's in St. Pete Beach. We enjoyed the food and friendly service. I don't think I'd go out of my way to make this my go to spot for pizza, but it was worth the one time visit. Pizza was not what we... More

So want this restaurant to succeed. Food good, portions very large and price great for the quality and portion size. However...my major concern is cleanliness. Restaurant as you enter and dinning area looks clean, a rustic look. Took my child into restroom right at opening on Sunday, 3p, and it was a complete mess. Garbage overflowing, toilets and urinals dirty,... More

Took a friend on her 70th birthday and my sons, 12.5 and 16. Everyone had something they liked. Fairly nice decor. We went at lunch and they only had the front rooms open. We were in the one closest to the register and it wasn't quite as nice as the others. Would be a very nice place for dinner. A... More

Went to a retirement party in January. Had not been to this restaurant in years and was so pleased at the up graded location. We had a private room and service was excellent. It is a young couple trying to make a go of local dining, not a chain restaurant. Everyone enjoyed the meals but the joshko appetizer is amazing.... More

Had never been to Shepardos until tonight. Wishing I hadn't gone at all. If the waiter said "Sorry, I am new" once he said it 20 times. The food was enjoyable and reasonably priced, but the service was horrible. Because our server didn't appear to know what kinds of beer and wine they served and there was no beer/wine menu,... More
