Our favorite lunch stop off of I5.
We've now stopped in here three times and it has never failed to please. The food is exceptional, the drinks are good and the beer selection is excellent. The wait staff is always friendly and helpful. A clean and spacious restaurant with outdoor seating as well. We love this place as a lunch destination when traveling between the north and south of Oregon.
Good place in downtown Springfield
I went there with some colleagues for a beer and dinner. The menu had a lot of great options in both beer and food. I had a special of a salad with 4 oz steak on top and a peach hard cider. Both were delicious. Atmosphere was good and service was great. Recommended if you are in town.
Casual, authentic, good crowd
Planktown shares a city block with some of the best spots in Springfield. Of course there's beer but its also very social and the food is tasty
We met friends here. I liked the way the inside was set up, plenty of room. Our waiter was very nice and his suggestions on beer was a winner. The Cuban sandwich I ate was good but I was thrown off by it having pineapple on it. I think I would order something else next time. Fries were a little soggy for me. Overall I would definitely go back I’m sure they have something for me to like.
A Main Destination on Main Street
For those who haven't been along Main Street in downtown Springfield for a long time, it's not the same Main Street that you remember. It's developing into a vibrant theater and restaurant row. Over the past year or so we've stopped in at a few of the eateries and today we had lunch at Plank Town. It's a large and comfortable place. We took a corner window table so we could watch the action inside and out (several outdoor tables). Because of the constant traffic along Main (a one-way street that is the main artery into Eugene) I'm not sure I'd enjoy sitting out there, but the ones who were there didn't seem to mind the noise and fumes. Like all other brewpubs in the area deciding what to order is a challenge. I picked their Alpine Pale Ale. It's alcohol level and suggested lightness would go well with the burger I planned to have. And a burger it was: Mushroom Blue, just on the rare side of medium. It came with the modern obligatory knife stabbed through the top. And the knife came in handy because cutting the big 8 oz. burger in half was necessary. If I had to quibble, I wasn't a fan of the too soft white bun. The rich goodness of the burger should have had a more substantial framing. Another quibble: I'm sure I ordered slaw, not fries; but fries I got. The server offered to take it back and bring slaw, but I gave in and said it would be fine (although my better half groused a bit about my eating fries). My wife surprised me. I guess she was feeling adventurous, because she usually plays it safe and orders what she is familiar with on first visits to restaurants. But, this time, she ordered the Steelhead Bahn Mi. And loved it! All In all, a great relaxing lunch. Even parking was easy with spaces on the street in front of the restaurant. We were prepared to park on a side street and walk. There is free two hour parking on the street (no meters). One of the newest additions to restaurant row is Cornbread Café, a vegan eatery related to the one in Eugene. I'm willing to state that downtown Main Street's restaurants are every bit as good, perhaps better than most of the ones along Gateway.
