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.

  • I have been to the Double
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/8/2012
    I have been to the Double Tree for Easter Brunch in years past and was looking forward to it. I was greatly disappointed in the food, service, and the fact that their were tables set up along the walls in the hallways. I will never go back. The servers were pleasant enough and polite but took a long time to bring drinks, brought the wrong drink, and were not very available. The place was a mad house. The food was so so and typical.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/31/2012
    My first trip to Allguaer's Restaurant was a decent one. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and it was moderately quiet. We were seated immediately. Our server was a nice older female who was conversational with us. We placed an order for crab cakes while we waited for our meal and the server completely forgot to place the order. Our food was brought in a timely manner, however, the side item I requested was not on the plate. It was replaced with something else. The food was good. The butter was extremely difficult to spread on the bread. Overall, we had a good time dining and we excused the few mishaps the server made. We will likely return in the future.

    Husbands salmon was very bland and somewhat dry. Very pricey. Service was sort of slow. Iced tea was nasty---they need to change brands or something. We get tea all the time and have never tasted it to be so terrible. Nice atmosphere. Seems mostly traveling business people eating at the time we were there.

  • Came here for a New Year's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 1/1/2012
    Came here for a New Year's Day brunch, and was surprised at the small number of people dining here. Notwithstanding this, the hostess stood not four feet from us as we entered and had to be prompted to greet/seat us. What was distracting her is not known, but it certainly was not a customer. WE found our wait person to be friendly and engaging, and largely invisible for most of the morning. Had to ask for water two-thirds through the meal, and was informed early on that the chilled champagne had "run out", but that more was being put on ice. The buffet selections were varied and imaginative, so the food is recommended. An additional waitperson or two on brunch mornings might make a difference going forward.

    We dined here because I had been gifted a certificate for a free dinner for two, which also covered tax and gratuity. The online reviews boasted about superb food & service, and reading the online menu only solidified the urge to try it. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated almost immediately. Our server seemed rushed and we had to ask for clean water glasses, warm bread, and plates for the appetizers. We ordered the filet medium, however, they were grossly over cooked. The waiter also forgot our coupon and delivered us a check anyway. Even if the meal was free, I felt it to be an utter waste of time. Although Mike was friendly, the lack of attention to the small details made my wife and I agree to never return to this locatio

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/24/2011
    It was supposed to be a special Thanksgiving meal. We expected it to be comparable to Allgauer's in Lisle. Instead, it was a very limited buffet in an unadorned hotel conference room. There was no ambience at all. While tasty, there was little variety in the food and its presentation was sloppy and unappetizing (gooey gravy ladle left on soiled napkin, for instance). Desserts were lackluster, and, with no attendant assisting or tending, each patron chopped out any size or shape he wanted for his portion, leaving a mess for the next person. It was not a place we wanted to linger in. We felt let down and glum when we left, just the opposite of what we expected. It seemed like a fraud It wasn't the same Allgauer's.

    We went for my husbands birthday and our anniversary. Our server was awful. She almost seemed annoyed with us. We had to ask our busboy for more drinks and for condiments. We never saw her between the time we ordered our food and until the food came which was a long wait and we all wanted more drinks. 2 of us ordered the Filet the outside was dry as a bone. We will not be back and we've already told most of our friends not to go.

He ordered a Caesar salad, which was a bit of a rip off to me... $4.00 extra and it was drowning in dressing!! Our server, Mike was very accomodating. He brought us more bread, butter, etc. We shared a brownie dessert...

    Good Food! I had my wedding reception at the hotel attached to the resurant 2 yrs ago. The resturant provides the food and drinks for the reception, we were very happy with the food at our wedding. We've gone to the resturant for dinner a few time since then. I also hosted my friend's bachlorette party dinner there a few months ago. Food is always good, but can be pricey. It seems for dinner at least, a more adult atmosphere.

    It was a great brunch selection. The only down side was that even though we made a reservation for 3, we were give a very small and limited table for two and added a chair to it. I had called and asked if a 4th person could join us but after I got in I was glad it didn't happen. It was hard to enjoy the magnificent food with such a small table to put it in.... Otherwise, great for a brunch celebration, my guest was very happy with the food and it was a great value...

    We went there for Mother's Day after making a reservation online. They did not have us down on their list, but they quickly seated us anyway. The bad part was that we were given a seat in the hallway that was facing the wall. The table was rectangle so we were about a foot away from the wall! I asked for another table and they took us into the grand ballroom and sat us at the same table exactly opposite the one in the hall. Again we were facing the wall! I just think that for 3 people to eat and pay $125.00 that the restaurant could have planned out their seating arragement a little better. The food wasn't bad, but I definately won't be rushing back.

We had to ask several times for things we thought were on the special. My chicken was not cooked fully and the chef came to the table and TOLD me it was. Another person at the table said the fish was not cooked fully but did not want to tell the waitress. The different courses were brought to the table so quickly you did not have time to finish what was in front of you. Soup lacked flavor

    I have been to this restaurant on several occasions and this was the only time that I was very disappointed. We decided to bring our office employees since it has always been good. On this day they had a buffet which most everyone chose. I'm not sure if it was at the end or what but the pork was dried out and the fried chicken was not crisp. It surely was lacking and was an embarassment for us as this was a holiday luncheon that we thought would be good.

This time I hosted my friend's bachorette party dinner there. We had a good time: food was great-almost to much of it, we all left with left-overs,service was good, etc. The dinner menu is pricey- so it's defiently a special occasion type place; not very kid friendly either. (My only con- the waiter didn't mention and I don't remember it listed on the menue that refills on soda was not free.)
