Nice find in this small town. Service was very good and friendly, thank you Cindy K. Food was very good. My husband had a pulled pork sandwich with fried and Cole slaw (under 8 dollars) and I had the buffet which was loaded... catfish, shrimp, beef, green beans, soup beans, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, salad bar, 2 cobblers and...

The service was outstanding and the food was very good. The seafood buffet was a big hit with all. On Sundays they have a brunch that we have heard is fantastic.

Mordecais is just going down hill. Atmosphere is bland. The "Happy Hour" hours are rediculous. Noone is out at those times. They have a bartender for 1 hour on Sundays. This place needs a rescue. It's a great spot for our town but everyone is going elsewhere.

The meal was great. They had a seafood buffet, but I just can't eat that much. I did have salmon and it was perfectly cooked. It came with tons of food, to go along with it plus the salad bar. The salad bar has a lot of options on it. The service was great!

Menu is somewhat limited, but you will find something that will fit your pallet. Service is fast and friendly. Comfortable seating and a full bar. Non-smoking throughout the restaurant.

We had dinner here with friends on Nov 14th and 15th while staying at a nearby B & B. Nice place well situated on main street in Springfield Ky. Waiting staff was quick and friendly. There looked to be lots of locals eating, which usually means good food. I ordered the Hot Brown on the first night and it was... More

You may order from the menu but on my last visit I enjoyed the buffet: salad bar,fried fish, fried chicken, meat loaf, potatoes, green beans, corn, biscuits and gravy, few more things, two kinds of cobbler and two kinds of cake for $9.75 at lunch. The fried chicken was exceptional. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful. I would eat at... More

There was a buffet that looked adequate but we ordered from the menu. Lots of locals there. The food is good but not exciting. Better than fast food by far though.

in town for a bbq contest so we went out for supper the nite before--this seemed to be the best choice in town---and it was good. Excellent cocktails along with a good meal, catfish platter was well cooked and tasty, I attacked the Friday nite seafood buffet----were a bunch of salads too but didn't hit that side of tables

Thank Buzde
