Rich was a very attentive waiter with a good sense of humor. Food was excellent and portions were large. The atmosphere is very noisy and not appropriate for a quiet dinner for two. You have to talk loud and sit close to be heard. It is very energetic and upbeat for a younger crowd.

We recently stopped here to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary for drinks and appetizers. We made reservations ahead of time and had a great experience. The wait staff was top-notch, taking care of all of our questions regarding the menu (having never been here before) and drinks. The waitress assigned to our table was really on-it. waters never not... More

We've been here a few times and it's one of our favorite restaurants in Naperville. It's a big, rousing, energy filled, dark wooded decor throwback - I never thought of it as a steakhouse, but the meat is the same as Gibson's so I'm sure the beef is great. Because of the "frog bar" name we initially assumed seafood. In... More

Everybody dresses casually these days but for this restaurant you might want to dress up a little bit. Delicious food & great appetizer selection, as well as a fine array of choices for drinks. Large bar area for overflow seating when the restaurant gets full. Beautiful atmosphere in the restaurant, white table cloths. Lots of surf and turf selections to... More

The filet mignon Oscar style was very good - considering Hugo's is part of the Gibson's brand, I was expecting that the steak would be done as well as they do seafood and it was. The steak was cooked perfectly and the crab on top was very fresh. Frogs legs and the chowder also were very nicely done. While not... More

The food is pretty good, frog legs are the specialty...The shrimp cocktail was excellent (and huge.) Our service was lackluster at best. We were given bread with a plate that had an empty cup on it, apparently for butter, but the server didn't notice that it was missing. Busy, sort of noisy atmosphere. Maybe we went on an off night,... More

Order the luscious, creamy clam chowder and ask for some raisin bread with a little butter on it. Scrumptious. The crab cakes are not Maryland packed crab style, but are still really delicious. If you order the cake desserts, make sure you have friends to share them with, because they're a huge portion. The creme brûlée was my mother's favorite... More

Went for a glass of wine with two friends in-between shopping but ended up ordering their beet salad as an appetizer to tide me over until dinner. From the moment Jake (a delightful summer employee) seated us and brought our water (I asked for lemon or lime in my water; he brought several of each!!) until Chris, our waiter, took... More

This is by far my most favorite restaurant in Naperville. The steaks are outstanding, wine list outstanding and the service is outstanding. The beer list is pretty good too... I eat here every visit to the area.
