    100 places to eat like a local

    Fresh Delicious Organic

    If you want to eat like a local, head over to Farmer's Gastropub in Springfield, Missouri. There you will find wonderful gourmet food that is grown locally and purchased directly from the growers. In the kitchen, the components of your meal are treated with love and respect by a gourmet chef.

    You really haven't lived until you have experienced the Sunday Brunch roast with roasted vegetables. Succulent meat accompanied by seasonal vegetables and rich gravy will leave you replete but not stuffed. The trout almondine is created using trout caught that day, and it is amazing.

    For vegetarians, there are many fine dishes including quiches and fabulous salads, as well as hummus.

    Additionally, there are over 20 kinds of wonderful artisan beers featured on tap, and many more in the bottle. Of course there are also fine wines, and a great mixologist for those who prefer cocktails.

    The ambiance is warm and welcoming; there is a lovely fireplace in the pub area with deep comfy chairs. During your meal don't be surprised if owner Bill Griffiths stops by to check on how you like your meal.

    This is our go-to restaurant when we want to go out. Bear in mind that to get there we have to travel over 50 miles, so, with the price of gas what it is, you KNOW it has to be great!
