We go to Allgauers about once every few weeks. It's a very pretty restaurant and you can request to sit by the window which overlooks the Des Plaines River. They light it up so it's very attractive, especially in the summer. Their house salads are...More

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...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...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...More

The easiest is to take 294 to Willow rd. Go west on Willow rd and take a left onto Sanders Rd by the BP station. Take a right onto Winkleman and the hotel is just a few blocks up on the right.
