    Food service very,very slow. When food arrived, lukewarm and meat was rare not medium well as ordered. Meat cut was poor and full of grisly, inedible. Toasted Pound cake dessert visibly burnt. Brought a friend from out of town for a nice meal and was embarrassed. I expected higher quality all around given the price.

    While not inexpensive, the brunch here provides a wonderful assortment of foods. From prime rib and ham to Spanish style shrimp and unique desserts, even the most discerning of nomads can find something fine to eat here. Plus, there is champagne and a chocolate fountain for covering pineapple slices, rice krispie type treats and more. This place would be recommended for a special occasion!

    Used to eat several times per year at this restaurant. Had not been there in a few years, but found that the food and service are still outstanding. Were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary, and both of us were quite pleased. New York Strip Steak and Filet Mignon were great. Service was exemplary. Server offered us a delicious dessert for the occasion. Prices were reasonable, and a $23.00 coupon and the free dessert helped.

    I enjoyed this restaurant's Sunday brunch very much. I was surprised by the innovative salads, the wide selection of seafood offerings, excellent entrée choices and very high quality deserts. Service was excellent; plates were cleared diligently, coffee was replenished regularly and the sparkling wine glass was never empty. The brunch is an excellent value and although full of people the room was quiet.

    The Friday night fish fry is a good bargain at $19.95, since you also get a choice of soup or salad and bread. The beer batter breading is heavy, but you have a choice to order the fish blackened or sautéed. I got the sautéed walleye pike and it was very good. I would not order it breaded.

    We went for our anniversary dinner because we had a coupon. Buy one entree, get one free, up to $25. Doesn't that sound good? Well, the waiter said we couldn't use our coupon on the "medium" portions. We had to order the "Full" portions @$29 and up......My husband had a drink which cost $10. The waiter charged us $8 for a complimentary dessert...which he did remove once we brought it to his attention. Our total bill was over $60. We feel that the waiter did everything he could to compensate for the $25 coupon. He succeeded. We don't consider Allgauer's a high-end, fancy restaurant. I guess they do. Don't bother to use that coupon for dinner. Maybe a lunch coupon is better. I sure hope so. You won't see us at Allgauer's again.

    Attended with family for the new Friday fish fry. Food was acceptable, and the "all-you-can-eat" option was well offered by wait staff. Food was just a little bland. Service was a bit slow, but the friendliness of the staff made up for the wait. All were very engaging. Surrounding patrons appeared to be happy with the food, but I did witness one table extremely dissatisfied with the wait for food, and left prior to being served. Restaurant itself starting to look "dated", and might be in need of modernization or remodeling.

    My Husband and I have dined here quite often mostly before they cancelled their Friday Seafood Buffet. Though the food is alright, the managers on duty are always unapproachable. They lack customer service skills unlike the warm and inviting servers. These Managers seem to favor certain types of guests, but I won't go into details.

    I loved the ambiance of Allgauer's. The great variety of salads and entrees keep us coming back for more. The table loved the new York strip steak and the cheese platter. The mango avocado salad and quinoa salad were a favorite amongst the table and need I say more, endless crab legs. Service was well time and super friendly.

    we went to Allgauers for the Friday night fish fry. After we ordered they told us they did not have any of the Walleye - the reason we went. After a long wait they brought out the perch - but it was cold. We asked that they do something in exchange for the lack of the Walleye but no one ever even apologized. The food here is mediocre and i would not go back.

    Enjoyed the fish fry. You also have a choice of saute, beer battered fried or blackened plus gluten free as well as two or three different kinds of fish. Call the day of to see what kind of fish the are serving that evening. When we went they had Cod, Lake Perch and Walleye Pike. Usually have at least two of these.

    We usually get back to the Lisle, IL area about once or twice a year. Allgauer's is always on our list of restaurants to visit. Their entrees are unique, well presented, varies, and most importantly, delicious. Our waiter, Bruce, as been at Allgauer's for years and he always provides us with outstanding service. This time, we were staying at the Hilton Hotel, in which Allgauer's is located, so it was an easy decision to eat there after a long day of driving. I had the salmon and my wife had the crab cakes and beet salad. Everything was outstanding.

    The crusted halibut was very good and the waiter was attentive. He even had the music turned down, when we wanted to talk.

The view of the water and trees is lovely when sitting by a table at the windows. Chairs are comfortable. White tablecloth. Fair pricing. Nice for romantic dinner, dinner with friends, Sunday brunch, or a group.

    This restaurant had good reviews. Something must have changed. They did not have the seafood and prime rib buffet that was advertised. The service was prompt but very curt. We had to pry information from the server. He did his job, but showed no sign of being friendly. The food tasted like it was prepared and microwaved, like a frozen dinner. The gravy definitely came out of a can. The cake for dessert tasted like Pepperidge Farm frozen cakes. It was not worth the price and not worth the visit. We were staying at the hotel. I would only visit this place if you are staying at the hotel and do not want to leave the building. Of the ten or so tables occupied we overheard the vast majority of them complaining.

    We miss the seafood buffet. We gave the menu option a try in honor of our daughter's birthday. Complimentary birthday sweet/cake was appreciated. Overall value was not seen; unremarkable and disappointing meal (chicken Marsala with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables, my one daughter had salmon, the birthday girl tried the skate with shrimp, and my husband had the fish fry. Waiter service was slow (take note: bus boy was excellent and attentive and would make an excellent waiter). I don't think we'll be back any time soon, unfortunately. We might try it again for brunch sometime though and give it another try.

    We love Allgauer's. The food and sevice are always great. We went Tuesday night and did not know it was steak night so that was a good deal, too as it included salad and dessert. The dessert we took home as we could not eat it after the meal. Of course, no coupons could be used. We usually always have a coupon. This is one of our favorite places to eat for a special dinner and, therefore, highly recommend it.

    We have been here a couple of times but last Sunday we really enjoyed our late morning brunch. There was a good variety of food (and this time there wasn't as many "shrimp with everything" dishes which we enjoyed as we don't eat shrimp). The desserts are sinfully delicious. The wait staff was attentive but let us talk with our friends as long as we wanted.

    $40 is at the top end of what a brunch of this quality should cost, but adding an automatic 20% tip on top for groups of 6+ seems out of line since the guests are serving themselves and the staff is just filling drinks and clearing plates.

    We were celebrating Mother's Day, Father's Day and end of school year and it was our celebration as we had enough family (5) to do this. It was expensive for us but worth every penny and made us have good feelings that stayed with us as a good memory and very positive. The food was unusual and unique and that was good and there was variety for the vegetarian and the young adults with us. This was my third time to come for brunch and I have not been disappointed. ever. It helps make a celebration a celebration. View out window, food quality and presentation were outstanding.
