    Simply put, the food is great. Has not been one thing ever that was not delicious. The service as well is great. I always ask for Bruce so I cannot comment on anyone else. He however, is the best. I am not related to him either.

    We have been to Allgauers several times and have not been disappointed. My husband had the Pistchio-herb crusted Lamb Chops and I had the small Filet with a Shrimp Cocktail as a side - everything was very good! Our server Eric did a great job and took very good care of us. This restaurant is a nice place to go for a quiet dinner. We have never been to their Sunday Brunch but we definitely will have to try it. JRS

    We went early on a Saturday, got seated by the window overlooking a pond. Everything was very good. I had the potato crusted halibut which was excellent. The fish was moist and had the crispy potato strings on the top. My husband had the sesame seared ahi tuna, he loved it. It was also nice that the entrees came with a soup or salad. We chose a very nice house salad with mixed greens. We also had chocolate cake for dessert. We had never been there before, but we will be back!

    A Thursday night 6-7 PM, 2 waiters serving. Ours took our order then disappeared into the kitchen. Brought out soup and salad, then disappeared back into kitchen. Never came out to ask how we were doing. Why do servers spend so much time in the kitchen instead of checking on customers? They're SERVERS, not cooks.

    The waiter made a mistake on one order so the third diner had to wait for a new plate to be prepared, leaving her sitting watching the others eat, which is awkward. The mistake was carried over to the bill, and we were charged for the erroneous entrée. Seemed a little odd that the waiter would not have corrected it. It was a menial $2 difference, and he apologized when it was pointed out. The food was very good though, and I loved that we could carry on a conversation easily with "dining room voices", a rarity these days. We will go back....

Brought a friend from out of town for a nice meal and was embarrassed. I expected higher quality all around given the price.

    Potential exists for strong fine dining player. However, obviously understaffed owing to poor traffic. Recent dinner was excruciatingly slow, even for my wife and I who were in no particular hurry simply enjoying an anniversary dinner (at the restaurant that catered our wedding reception). Hope they can pull it together.

    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.

    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.
