Dining options include all breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Terrace Grille, cocktails at the Terrace Lounge or Starbucks coffee and quick bites at the Q Street Perk.
Crowned "Queen City of the Ozarks" by Frommer's, Springfield is big city with a small-town vibe. Best known as "the birthplace of Route 66," Springfield offers a blend of urban elements with home-town hospitality evident in its mom-and-pop diners and shops.
