    What a surprise to find a restaurant of this quality in a Hampton Inn! We've eaten here twice and both times the food, wine and service were high quality and value. The wines, in particular, were reasonably priced. Not a huge selection, but good options.

    Dined on 6/9/2014
    We decided to try this hotel restaurant because the reviews have been consistently above average and complimentary. This is a busy newer hotel property that is frequented by business travelers located in a prestigious office park. Very clean. Very nicely appointed. Very good customer service throughout the hotel, bar and restaurant. Friendly polite people. Apparently mgmt 'gets it'. We thought the menu was rather limited and lacked midweek specials - but the food served was very good. Salads were fresh and nicely appointed with various spring green salad accents. Salad dressing was fresh and maybe not homemade but sure tasted like it was. Steaks were properly prepared and the baked potato was salted and perfect. Recommended.

    Our first experience with Allgauer's was Allgauer's on the Lake in Illinois, which was pretty much a disaster - we've never had such poor service anywhere, BUT we are so happy we decided to try Allgauer's in the Park. Servers and hostess were unbelievably attentive, and our filets were fantastic; really great food at a reasonable price. We definitely will go back! The Friday Fish Fry looks awesome!!!

    We have been to Allgauers on weeknights before and it usually is a fairly empty, quiet spot. Not so for this trip on a Thursday night. I was glad I had made reservations as we got the exact type of seat is requested. My husband loved the baked onion soup and I also thought it was delicious. Huge portion and great flavor. My salad was fine but paled against the onion soup. The waiter reminded me that shrimp scampi was a pasta so they must have some people order it and not realize that it is shrimp over linguini. The linguini was mushy and very over done. This is not their normal linguini so l let it go and didn't complain. My husband enjoyed the salmon. My husband had the salmon. He cleaned his plate so that tells me he enjoyed it!

    The food was good. However, I made an online reservation for 6 at 6:30pm. When we arrived (6:25) with our clients, our table was not set up. The restaurant was not busy so our table should have been ready. We were seated in a corner next to the only other table (at the time) with patrons. It wasn't a large enough table to be comfortable. Our server was very slow, it took us over 2 hours to get through dinner. I had to ask the hostess to find our waitress so I could get my credit card run. Not sure I would take clients there again.

    The food was fine, not outstanding, but good. But the ambiance is zip. It's totally a sterile hotel business person's (primarily male) venue. Dim lighting just made the whole place look dreary. Noise from the bar around the corner was loud and intrusive. I thought the restaurant menu sounded good and made a reservation for my husband's birthday. He liked his dinner, but I feel like I owe him another. Won't be going back.

    We went there for Valentines Day. I chose this place because I knew that parking wouldn't be an issue and it was close to home. We were immediately seated and were brought bread and water right after we sat down, however the waitress took quite a while to come take our order. The bus boy kept hovering over us trying to clean off the dishes before we were finished with our salads and appetizers. I ordered a glass of wine and they were out of the one that I ordered.

    This was our first time at Allgauers and it was a great experience. Tonight, aside from their regular menu, they also offered a Prime Rib Buffet for only $15.95 per person. Putting the great price aside, the quality of the various offerings was as good as it gets. The Prime Rib with au jus was very tasty. It was well seasoned and I really enjoyed the crusted seasoning on the edges. Also amazingly tender and juicy. They also offered a Four Cheese Pasta that was equally excellent. You would think the "Four Cheese" would be too rich, but it wasn't. It was quite good. In addition there was garlic mashed potatoes, unfortunately I think they left the garlic out. Green beans and carrots were very good.

    Went to the all u can eat prime rib buffet (they just started this week) and it was amazing. Only 15.95 and there was soup, salads, desserts, pastas, veggies, green beans.....service was excellent too. F&B Director and Chef talked to us and made sure everything was great. The Director did mention they will be treating the reservations for All U Can Eat Prime Rib Buffet just like Friday Night All U can Eat Fish Fry in terms of not accepting reservations in the future just doing walk ins. We also went to fish fry couple weeks ago and it was great too. You get to choose between Cod, Perch & Walleye...comes with soup or salad, homemade potato pancakes, french fries, homemade coleslaw & apple sauce. All ways good food and service there!

Friday fish fry was busy and no longer excepting reservations for fish fry( but then again no one does around here).... Perch, cod, and walleye all u can eat! It was worth the little wait to get in but they have drink specials in bar and 3 big TV help pass the time. Exec Chef and FB Director walk around check tables and make sure u leave happy.

    The food was very good and all staff were extremely gracious. I had the salmon and would definitely have it again. We happened to be there the first night a new menu was introduced and some in our party were disappointed that ribs no longer appeared on the menu but had no trouble finding quality alternatives. The other difference is the new menu was more pricey than we anticipated, having already viewed the old menu online. Nevertheless, our overall experience was very positive and I definitely recommend it to others.

    We've come to Allgauers several times, but always on Fridays and for the fish fry that in the past has never disappointed. This time we opted for the perch fish fry and were amazed when the plates arrived with two small filets of perch per plate. Even though the meal offered "all you can eat" fish, the small initial serving was disappointing. They were quite good, but were gone quickly and then we needed to get the waitress' attention to order more, and then wait for their arrival.

    We had to wait 20 minutes after our reservation time. We had to wait at lease 5 minites before the waitress approached us to take our order. We then waited 10 to 15 minutes before we got our soup, but only after we stopped the waitress and asked if there was a problem. The perch was tough, we needed a knife to cut it, The potato pancake and french fries were tasteless.

    I was impressed right away when the young hostess who sat us at our table explained that they were very busy and that there may be a wait to get our food. This let us know what to expect, and gave my husband a chance to go smoke one last time before eating. As it turned out, the food came on-time, but you could tell that the waitress was not out to impress. The manager, however, rotated around to the different tables and solicited comments, which I thought was a nice touch. I thought the fish fry was good, but my husband wasn't impressed. We both loved the Bailey's brulee for dessert, though, so we did have a happy ending. With a coupon, the price was just right. However, without the coupon, the price may have been a little high.

    The staff was overly concerned with making sure your water glass was full but not very attentive to anything else. The bread was un-eatable, french fries were very thin (straw fries) and served luke-warm, and the clam chowder (with a tag line of "best you've ever had") was mediocre. Would not recommend.

    We really didn't know what to expect when we went to the restaurant and can now wholeheartedly recommend it to our friends. It was strangly quiet, though. There was only one patron besides us for a 7pm dinner. The staff was attentive and the food was excellent. Especially the eggplant and portobello bruschetta. Amazing! And we were so amused that they gave my husband scissors with his French onion soup. We'd never seen this before. Very clever!
