Love this place the Lobster is like no other, the Shrimp are to die for and the calamari is excellent! Not to mention the fish and chips are also a good choice I have never had anything at Hugo's that I do not like! Highly recommend a visit while in Chicago!

Hugo's Frog bar is one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. I recently took 18 European colleagues to this restaurant while on a business trip in Chicago. The food was delicious, service was great and the atmosphere was perfect. Hugo's never disappoints!! Save room for their amazing desserts. Mud pie is a favorite! They are huge. One dessert can serve... More

We went here after an appointment downtown. They were very nice to hold reservation as we were an hour late. We had a dress with us that one of the servers was kind enough to hang up for us so it wouldnt be in the way. Having said that our server was a bit ditzy. She didnt seem to have... More

Shawn from WI was our server and he was great. Attentive and very friendly. What was disappointing was the quality of our meals. Our table of 6 came in before the dinner rush and for a famous restaurant it should know how to handle the flow. My fried shrimp was overdone and it got rubbery. Two orders of fish and... More

This is a solid choice for steaks and seafood. My wife and I first ate here about 10 years ago and again last night. When we made our first visit, my wife was mostly a vegetarian and I spent a lot of time researching Chicago vegetarian restaurants as well as a few seafood restaurants. To my surprise, when I asked... More

Hugo's is a fun and lively place to have a great seafood or steak dinner. Our server was extremely funny right from the start and there was a fantastic comedic exchange the entire evening. Started out with the Alaskan King Crab Bisque, which was excellent and the calamari. Silly me let the server talk me into only a half portion... More

Tried to book Gibson's at short notice but they were full and offered this, their sister restaurant which apparently shares the same kitchen. The server really was excellent, polite and helpful. The food - big, juicy shrimp as a starter followed by a steak - was quite superb and the overall experience absolutely first rate. Highly recommended.

It's a little noisy but that's our only complaint about this wonderful place. Service was great. Our pear blossoms delicious; the raisin bread was very good; and the oysters Rockefeller were the best I ever had. The wedge salad was excellent and the porterhouse steak we had was as my wife says perfectly cooked and delicious. Oh I forgot --a... More

Had a great table on the patio without a reservation on a Saturday night, which is a bit of a stroke of luck! The service was good and the staff friendly. We weren't super hungry and enjoyed the loaded wedge, clam chowder, filet sliders, lobster mac and cheese. The filet and wedge were incredible, the mac very salty. Looking forward... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
