We stopped in for lunch in between tours in Springfield. The restaurant is a classic. The atmosphere, food and service was so good that we went back for dinner that night. Our server did a great job with the menu suggestions and tidbits of history. It’s definitely worth the trip.
Established in 1884, Maldaner’s began its transition from an ice cream parlor to a full Restaurant and Catering establishment. Today Maldaner’s is one of Springfield’s finest restaurants. If you have visited The Old State Capitol, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Dana-Thomas House or the State Capitol, you can imagine the wonderful celebrations Maldaner’s likely was a part of at the turn of the last century and to the present day. The quality of everything we serve is of the very best. Down town shopping or after the matinee our place is always popular.
