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

This is the restaurant in the Hilton-Northbrook. I was staying at the hotel. I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised by the Steak Night special on Wednesday. A very good steak dinner and a nice dessert tray for a very reasonable price. Very good, too. Recommended.

Four of us had dinner on Sunday evening ordering from the Sunday Special menu where salad bar and dessert bar were included. We all enjoyed the meal and service and we all commented on how pleasant it was. Tables are not crowded together and it is actually quiet enough to be able to have a nice conversation.

We Met friends for an early New Years Eve dinner which was our first visit in 20+ years. The atmosphere is still enjoyable with a view out the windows of the nicely lit landscaping. The younger crowd may find it a bit staid. Our server was just okay. The food was okay to good but the drinks were good sized... More

Was in Northbrook for several days on business, and had the pleasure of enjoying the excellent food here on several occassions. Everything is so good including the Prime Rib, New York Strip, fresh salads with homemade dressings, the home made rolls, and the cheesecake and Creme Brulette are excellent. What makes it even better is the staff working there. Everyone... More

If you'd like a lunch on the light side, Allgauer's offers some very tasty soups and several entree-sized salads. Chicken or Shrimp may be added to the salad for a few extra dollars. Unfortunately, if you are a fan of craft beers, you'll likely be disappointed with the selection here.

We got married at Allgauer's Thirty-One years ago, so on my wife's birthday we decided to go there and try the Friday Fish Buffett. At the price of about 100.00 for us you would expect much more than was offered. The Prime Rib was good, but the selection of fish was limited and according to my wife nothing special. The... More

I try to eat healthy meals when traveling which can be a challenge. I ordered the root salad and it was wonderful. I had my hopes up for the entree which was grilled salmon with grilled veggies and roasted potatoes. It was so tasteless and swimming in oil and i could not begin to eat it. The waiter came to...
