My favorite restaurant! The best buffalo pony shoe! I've never had a bad meal. Great service. Get there early because there's always a crowd!

Never had an item I didn't enjoy. Very reasonably priced. Very popular. Best to try off hours to avoid a wait. I am not a fan of the local favorite "the horseshoe" (heart attack on a plate) but many think they have the best in the region and it's popular. My favorite is the pork chop. They have a great...

Stopped there for lunch. The atmosphere was enjoyable. My wife and I each ordered a pony shoe. My buffalo chicken pony shoe was extremely good, love the cheese sauce. The service was excellent; she checked on us regularly. I highly recommend the spinach and artichoke dip....some of the best we've ever eaten.

We were placing a phone order yesterday. We had 6 orders. One of the things ordered was the Chipotle Bacon Ranch Salad. We wanted the lead with no onion. When we asked to have them hold the onion, the response was "they are just placed on the top, so they are easy to remove." We simply said can you just... More

We went to Darcy's Pint to celebrate a birthday and an anniversary. Food was very good and prices were reasonable. The table had a wide assortment of food since there were ten adults and an infant. Servings are so generous that many took food home with them. Several had the horseshoes which Darcy's is well known for. My husband and... More

There was a 30 minute wait on a Friday night so we opted to eat at the back bar. Service was ok, drinks were fine, prices were fair, portions were large. We had Shepherd's Pie which was a bit bland and chock-full of frozen peas and carrots and a half Muffalotta sandwich that was ok. We would go back but... More

We ate there after a program at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum. I had the Irish cheesesteak which was huge and flavorful. My wife had the chili burger horseshoe. Both were huge. The interior was like a sports bar with several screens. Guinness was the featured brew. Highly recommend!

If you read this title and wonder what a Horseshoe is in a restaurant review, this must be your first visit to Springfield, Illinois. The Horseshoe (half size is called a Ponyshoe) is a Springfield specialty. You can get them all over town but I believe these to be THE BEST. If you are counting calories (or WW points-35) this...

Everyone loves the horseshoe and rightly so, but​ everything here is great. If you go horseshoe get the deluxe or Buffalo chicken. If you are watching your calories the salads are very good as well. They carry most Irish beers on tap.
