A word from Allgauer's Restaurant - Doubletree Hotel
It's casual, it’s sophisticated, it’s delicious, it's the place to be. Allgauer's Restaurant has taken on a whole new personality upon the completion of its million dollar renovation. The one thing that has remained the same is the tradition of quality and impeccable service that has earned the restaurant's famous reputation. The sizzle isn't all that is on the grill at Allgauer's! The dining experience is elevated to a new level with an atmosphere that is casual, sophisticated, and contemporary. The artwork is the signature work of commissioned artist Daniel Ramón. Even the table tops are works of art! Eight of the tables feature Ramon's artwork under glass. Sultry shades of orange, red and yellow adorn the walls and fabrics. Warm cherry woods, rich coffee colored button-tufted leather banquettes, unique architectural inspired lighting and contemporary touches all help create the exquisite experience. Allgauer's is the perfect place for a casual breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    We went to this restaurant on Mother's Day for dinner. They had a brunch earlier in the day, which we were told was packed, but when we arrived for dinner at 5:30, there were very few people in the restaurant. I liked the atmosphere and the appearance of the place, and the staff was friendly and courteous. Our waitress was very nice. However, the food was disappointing. The soup, salad and bread were good, but the main courses were not. My son had a quesadilla appetizer and he really liked that, but my other son had filet, ordered medium and it came out completely cooked, no juice, no pink center. My and my husband's meals were mediochre at best. I don't think we will visit again.

    We had high hopes for a great Mother's Day brunch at Allgauers, but our hopes were exceeded. Food was artfully prepared and presented. The variey was amazing. The service was flawless--not what you might expect from a buffet. This will become a new tradition for us. Until their next super-buffet (next Easter?) we will also try their regular Sunday brunch.

    Server a bit slow. Asked for water, got it when I was almost finished with my meal. Can get a bit noisy, people dropping the lids on the serving dishes (on the buffet) was nerve wrecking. I realize this is not the restaurant's fault, but I still jumped every time someone dropped another lid.

    I went to Allgauer's for the Easter Brunch. The quality and selection of food was excellent. We joke that a friend of ours over uses the word "huge". Well this brunch is huge. I particularly enjoyed the prime rib,oysters on the half shell, and fresh lox. I chose to drink "bubbly" with my brunch. The waitress kept it coming. I barely had room to eat a couple of the fine deserts with some coffee. I plan on returning next Easter if not sooner.

She was mad at me for not telling her about the restaurant a long time ago. I just started using Open Table at my step son's recommendation. Not only was the main entree excellant, but the soup was "out of this world"!

    The French onion soup was very good. The asparagus was perfectly cooked and tender. We ordered the prime rib and it was totally flavorless....I mean 0 flavor except for the natural flavor of the meat. I ordered a side of horseradish to compliment the meat and that was also flavorless. We were truly disapointed with the prime rib.

    Dined on 10/5/2012
    The service was good; however, the food was just average. One person's food was cold and another did not like the Lake Perch. They were accomodating regarding the entrees (for example with the jambalaya we were able to get it without some the okra or whatever else it was you didnt want). However, the menu stated that chicken, sausage & shrimp would be in the Jambalaya;but, it also included calamari which some of us didn't like. I think if you are staying at the DoubleTree it would be a place to dine; however, don't make a special trip to go there. There is also an Allgauer's in Lisle which is exellent. This place doesn't even come close.

    I enjoyed the restaurant's atmosphere. It was fairly quiet with background music playing. It was not very busy at the time but the way it is decorated gave it a nice ambiance. The food was good and plentiful, served on odd shaped decorative plates. I would certainly go back again to try some of their other dishes. The only problem I had was they charged an 18% gratuity to the bill for a party of two. We did have a room at the hotel but we ate in the restaurant. I did not understand that so I refused to leave an additional tip.

    Overall the food was good and we had a very good waitress. We were told the menu is relatively new and I think they're still working out some kinks. Several of us has the meatloaf and that was quite tasty. The prime rib was also good as was the ahi tuna salad. But the raspberry and regular vinaigrette dressings were quite thick and gloppy. Also, the French onion soup was overly thick in a gravy kind of way and we told the waitress about it. She said the chef was trying out some new recipes and she would pass on our comments. She also offered to bring something else, but my daughter chose to keep it. But aside from a few missteps, our meal was quite good and we would go back.

    The menu has changed and not for the best. We are long time customers, and often celebrate special occasions at this location. The steaks were not tender or flavor full. The double baked potato is no longer available. It was the best potato anywhere. Asparagus was always offered, and while it was available the day of our visit it is no longer on the menu. The chef in an attempt to please made a double baked that was so bad I sent it back. It was soupy and buttery (I hate butter) and it was uneatable. There were a total of 4 diners in the restaurant. It appeared the regulars have gone elsewhere. Admit it was worth a try to change the menu and bring back the original menu that brought us all there.

    We went here for my anniversary, a group of 11, and I must say the place was better than expected. The ambiance of this place was like " WOW, we need to come back". The manager was very welcoming and made sure she took care of all our concerns for the night. We had a large group so we had two waitresses; needless to say one waitress was great and the other one not so good. The "not so good one" did not even ask if we wanted something to drink however in her defense she did inform me what not to eat. The service for everything leaves much to be desired, we waited almost 30 minutes for the food to come out. Not sure if this happened because there was a wedding, class reunion, and high school party but I do not believe that is an excuse.

    We had a party of 7 and were seated at a round table where we could converse easily. Our wait-person was Kathy who did a wonderful job without rushing us at all. The food was served hot and delicious. I had Talipia which was done perfectly. The room was quiet with only a few diners on a Wednesday evening. I would recommend Allgauers and especially to local people looking for something other than the usual chain restaurants, or for couples wanting a quiet, fine dining date night.

She made the event sooo enjoyable for my wife and the family. Your executive Chef Saul,came to the table and asked how we enjoyed our food. All the dishes were top notch, except the meatloaf I ordered. The meat just didn't taste right. Cassie immediately deducted it from my bill and offered me another selection. All in all a fantastic place to have a special occassion. My wife and I are planning to try your Sunday Brunch, more on that later.

    The Mother's Day brunch turned out to be a much more "over-the-top" experience than we had anticipated, with block seating times and crowds so large the place had a convention hall feel. Nonetheless, the staff was courteous, attentive and efficient, from top to bottom, the food was varied, fresh and plentiful, and the room(s) were decorated beautifully. Just glad we were in one of the main dining rooms and not the hallway, something I'll avoid if we return.

    Brunch was elegant but the overall experience was brought down by the many kids running around and being allowed to serve themselves at the tables. Would've been more enjoyable if dinning and buffet areas were more policed. On a good note, the wait staff was pleasant and attentive. The food was delicious and the buffet choices were vast. There were several Carving tables and omelet stations so there weren't any lines. Genius!

    We went for the Easter Brunch and to celebrate my Honey's birthday and it was a great experience. We enjoyed the food selections, champagne.

After the brunch we enjoyed cocktails and watching the Bull's in the bar. Good drinks and the bartender was very personable!
