I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor, so decided to give it a chance, and was very pleased. Service:I've read mixed reviews on the service here, but ours was excellent, in fact some of the best I've had in quite some time. Food:Fresh and well prepared seafood. They tell me the seafood is flown in fresh daily and it looked... More

Staff was very friendly. Piano player/ signer was very enjoyable! We had drinks and split the crab cake and lobster mac and cheese. The mac and cheese was a bit of a let down but crab cake was surprisingly good - lots of meat! Would certainly go back!

The restaurant has an old world charm. Service is ok. I was looking forward to a great meal but was quite disappointed . The prices are very high but and food was lacking flavor. Too much bread in the crab cake appetizer and salad was very cold and not fresh. The rest of the meal was average at best. Nothing... More

My wife and I dined here for lunch on Labor Day. Upon arrival we were seated promptly inside. The interior is cozy and nicely decorated. The table cloths and napkins were starched linen. Our waiter started off being attentive and knowledgeable. My wife had the jumping part of the frog for an appetizer (yuck). She didn't care for them either... More

This restaurant is on our "return to" list. Great food and service ! The crab cakes are some of the best you will have! The crab bisque soup is a must! The Grouper was delightful as well as the Salmon dishes. We are looking forward to going back!

Hugo's is a great option to get a Gibson's steak. Great atmosphere. Great bar. Great location. Wonderful seafood too. Worth the wait to get seated. I try to visit whenever in town on business.

We had dinner at Hugo's on a Monday night - the place was packed! Food was very good and fresh. Wait staff were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The crab cakes are huge! Nice thing is that you can put together a meal of your choosing if don't see anything on the menu you want - nice touch so that you... More

We always look forward to eating at this restaurant when we're in Chicago. Service was extremely poor, there was a debate as to whose table we were, the waiter was more interested In the table of 5 nearly sitting on our laps! Food was great but idk why I waiter hated our table!
