Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Incredible selection. Salads, breakfast items, seafood, desserts, and carving station, all great. And the Champagne is a nice touch. Excellent service."

  • "This is our "go to" place for brunch. The best in the suburbs. Tons of choices, the greatest dessert table, and wonderful service. If you go away hungry it is your own fault."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "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."

  • "Great fish fry!! Worth a visit to this hotel on Friday ."

  • "If you are a seafood lover and a dessert lover then you will enjoy it. Salmon and desserts were exceptional. The other items tasted like hotel breakfast buffets."

  • "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."

  • "Had a salmon salad, reasonably priced though not a great value or anything. Would have liked them to include rolls with it. Everything tasted fine, and was fresh. Overall, it was good, but not great. Nothing like their spectacular brunch."

  • "Food is always great, and service is to, expecially if you have "Bruce" as your server. He is the best!!!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "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."

  • "Consistently reliable excellent dining experience. Amazing selections at Sunday brunch, all perfectly prepared and served in a sunlit atmosphere. Bravo to the great team of people who make this restaurant a truly fine dining experience - don't change a thing!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Entrees were very good. Onion soup had a good flavor but it was not hot and the cheese was not cooked well. The creme brûlée was overcooked as it was not silky and smooth but lumpy almost to the point of cooked eggs."

  • "The meal was average, the service below average and the noise not energetic but noisy."

  • "The variety of food was incredible - prime rib, seafood, unusual side dishes, great desserts and non-stop champagne. Couldn't have gone to a better brunch!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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. They gave a delicious complimentary dessert for our birthday celebration. We had a table next to large windows overlooking their landscaped back area, and it was lovely, despite I-88 being immediately behind it."

  • "I have been here many times through the years for brunch and dinner. Allgauer's nver disappoints. The food is excellent as is the service. 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."

  • "The potato crusted Halibut were excellent like always. Service (Jerry) excellent, but the shrimp cocktail was disappointing....the shrimp was not fresh and the sauce was lacking in flavor. In the past....it was always wonderful."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "$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. "

  • "We had been to Allgauer's in 2005 and I was charges two times for my food, It took a long time to get it fixed and was never offered and coupon to return. This year my Mother requested to go back and I made the plans. All was very Good and all is well with the billing So Far. The food is great and they do a great job of making the time the set for you...I Hope to go Back. Thank You, Marykay Griffin"

  • "My family and I came for dinner buffet. I told Pablo ( prime rib server) if you have a medium rare and he told me this only what we have. And the girl came up her name is Heather she said "what ever we have here that is all you can have". The guy Pablo said " You came late to be your reservation at 8:00pm but you came in after 8:30. I told them " What! We came here for buffet and there's no FOOD! I m very disappointed! They are very RUDE! I'm glad my server ERIC was very nice he told us if the kids don't have anything to eat let me give them mashed potato. My girls love it! What Eric did! The next morning I spoke with the manager "Sasha " I told her what they did to ask are very RUDE. She is very please and apologizing for what happen. "

  • "The menu was perfect for having many quality choices at reasonable prices. The service was great and all were very polite. The food was fantastic. I had the Ahi Tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes but the steaks were tempting. I look forward to returning when in town. I have visited other holtel resturants in the area but this place had the best food period."

  • "The food was good, the selection was very good. If you miss those lavish brunches that were popular years ago, this will satisfy your craving. The price is quite high, though ($38.95), so it's good to be very hungry (or very rich). We used a restaurant.com coupon, which helped. They do constantly refill the coffee and champagne, and take away the empty plates, so I'd have to say that the service is close to perfect. "
