I had friends visiting from out of town and decided to try Chef Wayne's. We all had different dishes and they were all excellent. I had the Mississippi Chicken, one friend had fried catfish (a special, not on the regular menu) and the other friend...More

Two of our favorite cuisines are Creole and Cajun. I was totally shocked to find these cuisines in one restaurant in Springfield, MA and the chef is from Haryford, CT. Go figure. His talent in the kitchen was terrific and comparable to some of our...More

Just OK if you're starved. Otherwise explore other food places, i.e. Hot Table, Food Court close to Mass Convention Center. I guess one has to develop a taste for southern cuisine.

Yep, Cajun-style cuisine in Springfield. If you are downtown in the area of the convention center you can build up your appetite by walkI got. There is a short stretch that requires being cognizant of your surroundings and if you are walking alone you may...More

I think that they do not take reservations. Just be prepared to wait a bit for a table. Also, it is a BYO for beer & wine. It's worth the wait...the food is delicious!

I looked on-line at their menus and didn't see that offering. They may rotate their menus and this would be served at other times during the year.
