Allgauer’s on the Riverfront, Northbrook, IL Not a disaster, but close. The good: A handsome dining room with a beautiful view of the Des Plaines River through the window. The bad: As the twilight descended, the outdoor lights went on, only to darken a few minutes later. The air conditioning was inadequate, even though the outdoor temperature was only 72°.... More

Excellent breakfast and lunch buffet selection. I was impressed as to the quality of the buffet selection available to all guests and especially if hosting a business event.

Informally don't like hotel food, but have to admit this is one of the better restaurants in hotel I have had the pleasure to eat in. Every day they offered a diverse menu for all meals and the staff was very attentive and made sure you enjoy the experience.

I've eaten at other Allgauers locations. This one is less-than-stellar. The breakfast is minimal, the restuarant is old and musty and service tends to be slow.

Steak night on Wednesdays is pretty good. A good, not great, salad and dessert bar. The filet was pretty good, as were the twice baked potatoes. .

The food was good. However we had the specials on a Sunday night with the salad bar. There was very few regular salad fixings. It looked like the salads they were serving were left over from the brunch they had earlier in the day. It could have been kept up better. Otherwise we were happy with our Dinner and we... More

This is a lovely restaurant that's walking distance (even in 20 degrees) from the Crowne Plaza across the street. We were in a private banquet room that was a nice space. Food was delicious.

I had the mushroom risotto and it was excellent! My husband enjoyed the steak dinner. The salad is very good and the vegetables served with dinner are very tasty. The pretzel rolls were yummy. We try to get a table by the window so we get the pretty view of the river and trees. It is always pretty whether it... More
