- RERobinEChicago / Illinois •1 review4.0Dined on Apr 7, 2023We were seated quickly, our service was wonderful. The food was paced well, it came out hot and plentiful. The only drawback was mom's nightly was a little tough to chew. Not bad enough to be sent back but enough for her to mention it while eating. Overall we will definitely be back!More infoRed Lobster - Springfield - Dirksen Parkway$$$$• Seafood• Springfield•4.1
