What a wonderful environment to relax and spend time. I had the wedge salad and it was perfect, great size and just the correct amount of dressing. Next came the onion soup and again, it was just delicious-served hot covered in cheese and not too salty that often happens elsewhere. I next enjoyed a fabulous display of shrimp cocktail, four large (maybe u-10 or 12) perfectly cooked peeled shrimp on ice paired with a sauce that was imbued with horseradish. It was all delightful-whoops-I almost forgot-they have draft beer-I enjoyed one of the local offerings. My wife got a grilled lobster that looked great. Simply to eat as they razor the body right down the middle-no mess to get to the meat. No room for dessert-sorry-next time better planning!

I was there after Chandler's first opened last year and it was good back then. Went back recently and it was very good. Very good steak and seafood in downtown Springfield.. I will be back and soon!

What a wonderful dining experience. We were seated immediately at a charming red velvet banquette. Theresa was our waitress, she was knowledgeable about the menu and helped us make our choices. The lobster cake appetizer was amazing and the garlic shrimp was very good. We chose the special which was Delmonico steak topped with shrimp. Absolutely cooked to perfection and was delicious. Finished with Creme Brûlée that was the creamiest I've ever tasted. Yes its pricey, but so worth it. 👏👏👏

The french fries, as usual, were not great. The base on the sound system was turned up too high. Everything else was good, especially the great service from Theresa.

It was New Years Eve but the restaurant wasn’t full. Service was very slow. We were there for over two hours and time between courses was prolonged. Bar was very stingy with their vodka. Two of us had mixed drinks with vodka and could not taste the vodka. When I voiced concerns they gave me another drink, stating they gave me more vodka but still could not taste it. However I had no issues with the casino drinks they actually had the taste of vodka. Steak was requested to be medium and it was overcooked but still tasty. Another steak was ordered medium well and it was pink throughout. I would be more understanding if it was a full restaurant but it wasn’t.

Make no mistake, this place is expensive, but for the occasional treat, well worth it. When I saw that the steak tartare that led me to select the Chandler for my birthday dinner was no longer on the menu, I was dismayed, but our server asked the chef to make it for me and believe me, it did not disappoint.
We had 3 different steaks, scallops and pork chops and every meal was perfect. The spinach and mushroom sides were amazing. My creme brulee was delightful -- no overly thick sugar crust to chop through. The servers were knowledgable, attentive and accommodating. There is not enough room here for all the accolades and I am quite particular.

Everything was delicious...
Drinks, mac & cheese, creamed potatoes, STEAK...
-My Filet mignon was medium rare perfect and smokey.
-Prime rib was delicious but NOT HOT when served.
-Skirt steak was marinated ~ delicious ~ but it doesn’t need PESTO ON TOP!
The menu doesn’t mention any PESTO ON TOP.
-Creme Brûlée dessert was delicious.
We enjoyed Chandler’s and the MGM Casino on Thanksgiving.

It was a fine experience, but what is displayed as a high-end restaurant, but the number of people coming in with sweatpants was a bit jarring. The food was tasty.

My experience was the worst since they decided to close without telling any of the people that had reservation. So everything was terrible. With no excuse. Would not recommend at all

We enjoyed the ambiance and the food, but initially waited for about 15 minutes before we were greeted or had our drink orders taken. The staff was professional and polite, but seemed to struggle with balancing their attention.

The seating arrangement does not promote a private or romantic atmosphere. In order for the waiter to talk to the customers next to you, his backside is against your table. When I asked for a larger table, I was told that she would check but that never happened. The food was good and the waiter was excellent but I would not return. If I'm going to spend that kind of money I want all aspects of the dining experience to be positive.

This was our second time there. We were so fortunate to have Rebecca as our server. We were there 2 weeks ago and she remembered our orders!! She’s truly outstanding and is the consummate professional! She’s honest- I complained about the new salad presentation and she confessed that it was new that night instead of rolling her eyes! She always appreciates feedback. She makes the experience even better!

This was not our first time at Chandlers, but it was the first time we ate in the bar. We were going to the 7:15 PM show at ROAR Comedy Club, we mentioned this to our server and she made sure we got out in time. Service and food was just as good as the main dining room.

I was actually very surprised. The restaurant was very attractive and the menu looked really good. I've dined at other restaurants and MGM Springfield and was pleased. But the food here was disappointing and I think we had about 6 different people helping us over the course of 90 minutes. I had wagyu beef, which I expected to be excellent, given this is a steakhouse and the prices were very high, but it was chewy and quite fatty. This was a business dinner with colleagues. One of my colleagues shared with me privately that his steak, a filet, was overcooked and had no flavor. I would not go back again, nor could I ever recommend it to a friend or colleague.
