Diner Reviews
  • "I had a pepper-crusted filet that was absolutely delicious. Another person had the halibut that he said was outstanding. My husband had the bone in sirloin, which was very chewy and hard to cut. He should have sent it back, but he didn't. We also had asparagus and a baked potato that fed all three of us. We had no room for dessert. They are very tempting, did think about bring one home, but pushed that thought out of my head. Love this place for food and service is the BEST!!!"

  • "My buddy from the southern suburbs is moving and this is a good place to meet between North Shore and South Burbs. We had a group of 6. We all had meat and it was all good. THe Lobster mac and vheese was a bit spicy. The twice baked was very good. The service was excellent. The waiter gave us a peice of cake for dessert that was huge and delicious. All the meat was done to the correct temperature. I would abolutely go back!"

  • "If you simply want to go to Hugo's and have the time, drive to Naperville. For a restaurant located in Rivers Casino (not my first pick either) it was passable. My wife didn't enjoy her fish but could not put her finger on exactly what was wrong with it. My steak was cooked well but overall lacked seasoning. We always have the avocado crab appetizer as it is one of our favorite dishes and even that seemed to be missing something at this location. Will not go out of my way to visit this location again but I am still a fan."

  • "Worth heading to Rivers Casino just for the opportunity to eat at Hugo's. Food is always great, the service is fabulous - very personable and attentive wait staff, nice wine list - totally one of our favorites. I think it is far better than the Hugo's on Rush Street."

  • "The waiter we had was great. The appetizer was fantastic but, ordering any kind of red meat is very expensive & the taste was simply just okay. I appreciate that the waiter took great care of us for our anniversary & he gave us a Sundae w/ a lit candle which was cute."

  • "This is one of our favorite spots. We come just the two of us or we bring guests. Consistently good/great food, service, and ambience. Generous portions. Delish desserts. It's in the very front part of Rivers Casino so if you're not a gambler you don't have to get into the gambling scene at all. Do not have any doubts about coming here for lunch or dinner. You will never be disappointed."

  • "Barb wasn't sure where she wanted to go for her birthday dinner. Hugo's is always the standby for an elegant meal. It's close to the house and is in the casino. She never passes on a chance at the slots. The service was first rate. 2 managers came to our table to make sure everything was ok."

  • "Like the other Hugo's and Gibson's locations, the food here is simple, fresh, and delicious, the portions are massive, the service is friendly yet professional, and the martini's are stiff. Another upside - no kids, since you have to be 21 to enter! You may not win in the casino, but you can't lose no matter what you order at Hugo's."

  • "My husband and I split the Chicago Cut steak, a huge double baked potato and sauteed spinach. All the food was very good! We could not have asked for better service. Our server was very attentive and so was the rest of the staff."

  • "Hugo's is good as always, the Rivers location is no different. My only issue is that I made my reservation 1 month in advance for a party of 8 and they crammed us into a 6 top. At the price point for this restaurant, that is no way to treat guests. I watched two 4 tops that had been combined with an extender for 10 sit empty for over an hour, until it was broken down and re-set as four tops. I could understand that treatment if I had made the reservation that day, but they called me earlier in the day and I called back and re-confirmed the reservation six hours in advance. "

  • "just another over priced place with bland food (crab in crab cakes comes from farm raised in Thailand). Filet was tender but no real 'steak' taste. Service was reasonably attentive but I dislike table help that tries to take away your food before you are finished. As our table did not drink alcohol, we felt like they were less interested in us as diners."

  • "We came to Hugo's for dinner with family from out of town. Mark our waiter was great. He was knowledgeable on everything we asked about the food there. The steaks were excellent. Loved the Mac and cheese too. Desert was wonderful we had the key lime pie. Piece was enough for 4. I would definitely go back again. "

  • "Best casino restaurant in the Midwest! We've never been disappointed, and they are ready to serve you for just a meal...or totally understandable that you are there for a quick meal before the casino. HIGHLY recommend. "

  • "We ate at this restaurant twice last year and enjoyed it. Our recent experience was not a good one at all. First, the restaurant was so loud, we had to yell at our server to order. We felt like we were in a sports bar! The noise would have been tolerable if the food and service were enough to make up for it...but they weren't. My husband ordered a sirlion steak (his staple when eating out) and rated it mediocre at best. Not terrible, but certainly not great. Given the price tag for just a steak, it didn't live up to the hype. I ordered the shrimp dish, which was decent, but did not live up to my expectations either. The service was slow and not as attentive compared to our previous visit. We will not be back next time we are in town. "

  • "Hugos is one of the best restaurants in the Chicago area. The food is outstanding, service impeccable and location perfect. Our seafood and steak dinners were perfectly cooked and serviced by a most gracious, friendly waitstaff. We will continue to return to Hugos for an overall superior dining experience. "

  • "Three of us went to celebrate Easter and we had a terrific time! Our waiter was very prompt and professional. Food was very good and portions large. If you order the Chocolate Moose Pie, be prepared for a gigantic piece! It will probably feed at least 6 people with double slices!"

  • "This was our first visit even though we frequent the Rivers Casino, thought it would be stuffy and over priced, but we had excellent service and our food was above par. Our server was very cheery and helpful, couldn't believe the size of the dessert cakes! "

  • "The Mac and cheese was awesome! But the rest left a lot to be desired. The steak I got was overpriced and not as good as cheaper steaks that I've gotten. The waitress came up and touched my back EVERY TIME she came up to our table. I am NOT a person who likes people I don't know touching them and it was off-putting. I ordered my steak medium-rare and when it came out it was medium or a little more. If' I'm paying $42 for a filet, it better be cooked right! Over-all my experience was fair. I probably won't go back."

  • "Overpriced. Steak was cooked right (medium) but real dry on the outside. When you serve a steak with a sauce, you know its not going to be melt in your mouth good. Come here for the Appetizers and Dessert only."
