4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I had breakfast there and it was pretty good. The waiters were good. The older host seated us with a come on waive and seemed annoyed.

“Great seafood buffet.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

My family and I went to this restaurant because it was attached to the hotel that we were staying and I have to say it was an excellent experience. I was a little leery of a hotel restaurant seafood buffet because I have had bad experiences in the past at other places. This however was an excellent buffet with a great variety of entree's, salads and every type of seafood dish you could want. The desert buffet was also excellent and the chocolate fountain was a great touch. The service was great and oh! did I mention they had all you can eat prime rib. Would go again without hesitation.

“Allgauer's on the Waterfront”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

This restaurant has sadly deteriorated over the years. Perhaps because of competition from the nearby restaurants in the Glen ~ I don't know.....We bought a coupon from wedeal.com and so we gave Allgauer's another whirl. I ordered the veal cutlet. It came with soup or salad....salad was a bit limp but okay. Entree came with an unusual potato sculpture and fresh veggies and topped with spinach. The veal cutlet was a square piece of meat leading me to believe this was a frozen piece of meat. Very odd indeed. Waiter service was slow which was surprising because the restaurant was empty on a Saturday night. Would return only with coupon.

“Great food..great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Was a guest in the hotel which is attached to the restaurant, ate from the hot and cold breakfast buffet daily. Good selections, varied daily and somewhat "upscaled."

Other options were lunch and dinner buffets which were substantial but a bit pricey. Weekends find many families coming for Saturday dinner, Sunday brunch or traditional Sunday dinner. Can be crowded but there are areas where one can find a cosy corner to enjoy without feeling rushed.
