We've been here a few times and it's one of our favorite restaurants in Naperville. It's a big, rousing, energy filled, dark wooded decor throwback - I never thought of it as a steakhouse, but the meat is the same as Gibson's so I'm sure the beef is great. Because of the "frog bar" name we initially assumed seafood. In any case, the food is excellent, the service very good and you 'gotta like the decor. Lots of energy, a good place for a large group celebration.

Everybody dresses casually these days but for this restaurant you might want to dress up a little bit. Delicious food & great appetizer selection, as well as a fine array of choices for drinks. Large bar area for overflow seating when the restaurant gets full. Beautiful atmosphere in the restaurant, white table cloths. Lots of surf and turf selections to choose from. You will not be disappointed with your service or your meal!!!! Nice basket of a variety of breads served with fresh butter or olive oil. Just be prepared to pull out your credit card. After all the drinks, appetizers, and dinner & dessert you will have a sizable bill. Worth EVERY PENNY! Great place for a special occasion.

we got to the restaurant early for dinner and with no reservation but were seated right away. we ordered drinks and told the waitress we would like some time to enjoy our drinks. when the waitress came back we ordered the goat cheese, yum it was great. we had soup and an entree and every thing was great. if i lived in Naperville it would be my favorite place to go. we had an excellent time and will return for more.

The filet mignon Oscar style was very good - considering Hugo's is part of the Gibson's brand, I was expecting that the steak would be done as well as they do seafood and it was. The steak was cooked perfectly and the crab on top was very fresh. Frogs legs and the chowder also were very nicely done. While not exactly a budget meal, Hugo's still offers pretty good value as most steak places in the area make you order sides a la carte while Hugo's actually includes potatoes and a vegetable with their steaks. Atmosphere inside is very traditional fish house - lot of dark woods, tile, waiters in long white aprons. The service was great and the Manager really on top of things coming through the dining rooms several times to check on guests. They have a very nice patio with a fountain and there was live music that night, but it was just a bit too warm that evening to sit outdoors so was glad I booked the main restaurant on Open Table for the A/C. The patio definitely fills up, so book ahead if you want outdoor dining. Would definitely eat there again whether on business or out with friends or family.

The food is pretty good, frog legs are the specialty...The shrimp cocktail was excellent (and huge.) Our service was lackluster at best. We were given bread with a plate that had an empty cup on it, apparently for butter, but the server didn't notice that it was missing. Busy, sort of noisy atmosphere. Maybe we went on an off night, but it overall was average.
