I wouldn't recommend this place for celebrating Mother's Day. I have had a terrible experience with this establishment for the past 2years. The first year, the restaurant lost my reservation and then argued with me, saying that I had never made one. I had made the reservations a whole month in advance. This past year again, they lost the reservation... More

For a hotel based restaurant, one would expect high prices and average quality, but not the case here. Price-point for the offerings were reasonable, and the quality / presentation was better than average. On a recent business trip, it snowed during the night, and a window seat overlooking the river is very tranquil. Breakfast offerings are clearly a step above

We arrived at Allgauer’s at the time of our reservation for our Thanksgiving dinner. We had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. During our waiting time we noticed that many tables and booths were not occupied because they had dirty dinner ware still on the tables. The three of us viewed the menu and noticed that on this...

I went to this restaurant during lunch while at the property for a business meeting. The atmosphere is pretty nice and the view of the river and woods is very nice. The server was very attentive and friendly, however I had the tilapia sandwich and it was just ok. The roll wasn't very good and the fish was only ok.

I had a crab appetizer with mango. The mango was far from ripe and gave the entire dish a sour taste. My seared tuna was dry and nearly tasteless.

My family and I frequent Allgauers often for Sunday brunch. There is usually about 15 of us and the staff are extremely accommodating. The service is great and friendly and the food is excellent!

For a hotel restaurant, the food is not too bad. It is as usual a bit pricey. But he breakfast was very good. The lunch buffet was nice with a good variety of salads and fish dishes.

Invited to banquet catered buffet dinner on a Sunday dinner. Hosted bar complete; bartender indifferent and acted like he was doing you a favor. Not cordial, not smiling. First impression not hospitable. Buffet had nice selection as chosen by the host. Instant mashed potatoes cold. Yes, out of the can instant mashed potatoes! Chicken in cream cream caper sauce tasty.... More

We dined at Allgauers Restaurant in Northbrook Illinois on Friday July 31, 2015. We arrived at 4:30 pm. The restaurant was empty. We were seated in a booth. The server took a while to get to the table. It was slow getting our drinks. The menus were dirty. The place was somewhat dirty and could use some cleaning. There were... More
