This is a MUST VISIT when you are in Springfield!! Hands down, this will be the best steak place you will ever visit!!! The neighborhood isn't the best, but they have on-site security and the owner is fantastic!

Went with 4 couples. 6:30 reservations. A mistake. Everyone shows up earlier and place is bigger than it looks. Kitchen can't keep up . Got our food after 8. Salad nothing special. Had to try fried lobster as suppose to be a specialty. Was good...More

The Old Luxemburg Inn has been in business since the 1940's. It has had several owners but the place continues to be the same place I dined at in the 1950's. The place has large servings, excellent food and an atomsphere of days gone by....More

I've been going here for 40 years. Everything is good. This is a nice, but not elegant restaurant. Basic mid-western comfort food. Definitely try the baked potato with chive cheese sauce. Springfield's horseshoe, steaks, chicken. The whole menu is simply good food.

Consistently good as it always is since my first in '92. Warm, professional and courteous staff. Our waitress Christy is top notch. Ambience is 1970's and that was a cool thing. Ample portions, well prepared. Ribeye was too fatty, is the only negative.

It does not look like much on the outside, but they have good steak. The interior is dated, but I think that is what is unique about the Lux. They have a good menu selection along with a full bar. The staff is always friendly...More

We went during what my be called off-hours - I just don't like crowded restaurants. The ambience - nothing jazzy, but friendly. Regular folks offering above average service. Easily recommended this place.

There is security in the parking lot because the surrounding neighborhood is diverse and contains a lot of hard working people. Some people, for no good reason, feel paranoid in a diverse, working -class neighborhood. Also... More
