But you probably won't look forward to it. I got a ribeye (medium rare) and baked potato. It would have been an OKAY steak if I'd been at Golden Corral. For $42 (the special says 19.99 but that's for the chicken) it was not good at all. Service was okay - couldn't manage to get a beer list to save... More

I took my wife there for a romantic dinner as we first visited Allgauers when we were newlyweds. It was not the same fine dinning we remembered. There were eight people seated in the dinning room; including a family of six. My steak was not the prime rare beef it should have been. Choice maybe and the chef must have... More

This restaurant, while fine dining prices, has amazing food and interesting selections. We were there on an extremely quiet Tuesday evening. We ordered Scallops and Salmon along with some great sides. Everyone was friendly. We had food left over and ate it for breakfast. Actually got breakfast there the next morning. Same great food and friendly service. If you are... More

Once again dining alone while on business the evening before heading home I find myself with no other option but to have dinner at Allgauer's in the Hilton Northbrook hotel. It is not a bad option, I just would have rather dined away from the hotel. The restaurant had hardly anyone in there so the service for my table was... More

Great place to eat. Offers from higher end entrees to sandwiches, salads, and other 'pub food'. The waitstaff is wonderful and always making certain that you're well taken care of! Thank you Angel!

We dined one morning at Allgauers for breakfast during our stay at the Hilton Northbrook. The rather large restaurant was full of people and there appeared to be only one man serving every table. When we were seated, he came to our table to inform us that we could either eat from the buffet or there was a 30-40 minute... More

This is a brunch review. Did not start off too well with the reservation being lost. No one seemed to know what was going on. when finally got seated service was indifferent, verging on anonymous. The food was very unimaginative and very stuck in the 90's. The food that I did have may have been good but none of the... More

Don't go here if you are in a hurry. Stopped in for lunch thinking I could grab a quick salad. 30 minutes later still no salad and I have a meeting to be at. Ended up getting it to go and no time to eat so it ended up in the trash. Thanks for wasting my time.
