We would rate it as just okay. There were things that were good and things that were not so great. The good: Brandy Old Fashions (muddled fruit, not a mix) and tender filet mignon. The not so great; overcooked vegetables and rolls that were hards and very dry.

My wife and I like to try different restaurants and we had never been to Allgauer's so we decided to give it a try. We made an afternoon reservation for lunch at Allgauer's for 1pm. At some point I tried rescheduling for 1:30 through the app but with no success. I then called the restaurant but I kept getting the answering machine. I left a couple of messages letting them know that I wanted to change my reservation. I even left a number for them to call me back to let me know they got the message. Never got a reply. My wife and I decided to just go. But when we got there they were closed. According to their hours of operation, they didn't have a lunch service. Why wasn't this noted in the app? Why was I able to get a notification from Allgauer's accepting my reservation if they didn't have lunch service that day? Very disappointed.

The restaurant was severely understaffed. I waited at the host stand for 15 minutes and had no contact with any employees. I had to ask the bartender three times where the host was. When we were finally seated, the service was very spotty. I had to basically beg for refills on my fish.

I have been here several times and this was definitely an off night. Hopefully, I have a better experience the next time I go.

Grilled cheese is huge, happy hour tater tots were nice and crispy, pear and apple salad less than desirable. Flat tasting, no flavor. Stick to the Thursday night 1/2 lb gourmet burger special - well worth it!

Service from Jenny is A1 Outstanding! Kitchen - what happened??? You were UNEXCEPTABLE today. Our simple Thursday burger specials took 30 minutes to come out [normally a fast 10 minutes], fries were wrong and cold, burgers not cooked to order, sent cold burger plate back, found a hair in the other burger, sent that back too.

My son-in-law and I had the prime rib special and the portions were adequate. My daughter had the 8 oz. filet she ordered med and it came out med-well. The next one was tender and she kept it although it to was overdone. Far too many brussel sprouts came with her order, they were good but way too many. Yes, I would recommend it to a friend as the service was excellent.

Overall experience was very disappointing. Food was very mediocre. Asked for bernaise sauce for my steak and was brought some beige gravy. When I questioned the manager if that was bernaise; his response was although he's never had bernaise, he was sure it was bernaise. Everything about the restaurant was disappointing.

First of all, I have to say that the food was great. The service . . . not so much. I had made reservations because there were 6 of us, but when we arrived at the restaurant they had no record of a reservation. No big deal, since it was a Monday and it wasn't real busy, so we didn't wait a long time for a table. Went downhill from there. Our server was pleasant and polite, but I got the impression she was very new at the job and didn't have a good idea what she was supposed to do. We all finally got the drinks and food we ordered, but it took a long time. Meanwhile, she hadn't removed our salad plates and tried to juggle them while putting down dinner plates. When the bill finally arrived (including a built-in gratuity), it took almost 15 minutes for us to chase her down to deliver payment. We had dined here a few times before and had a good experience, but this time was lacking.

First time there and it was for a business meeting. My office location is across the street in the Regus building so it was very convenient. The food was excellent and our server was great. She made sure to ask if we needed refills as our drinks were low and we didn't have to ask (rare these days). Definitely will be back for lunch.

I have dined at Allaguer's in the past and have never had the treatment that we received on 7/12/19. I was very disappointed by the service that was received. We had 7 p.m. reservations and I arrived at 6:50 p.m. I waited at the table for my family to arrive and at approximately 7:15 p.m. I was told that I had to leave because the rest of the party was not there. As I was preparing to leave I noted that my family was in the line waiting to come up to the hostess station. They had been in line for 10 minutes . I appreciate the hostesses honesty in confirming that my family had been in line.

I then made the manager aware and then they began re-setting the table. Following them resetting the table it took 15 minutes for us to get service. I have no problems following a restaurants reservation policy, however it would be nice to be informed of at the time of booking. If you are going to ask someone to leave, you should ensure that the entire party is there, before coming over to the table and asking someone to leave. Maybe consider having a line where guests with reservations may check in so that they aren't standing in line possible losing their reservations.

I was also disappointed that as we were sitting at the table a lady was picking up the dishes and was slamming dishes around. She made the statement "people need to get moving we will be closing soon."

An apology would have been greatly appreciated from the manager, which was never received.

I consistently bring my guests, friends and family on Thurs for their unbeatable, delicious $8 gourmet burger special: 1/2lb w cheese, all the fixings, special sauce, generous pickle spear, choice of hand cut chips, sweet potato [our fave] or reg fries AND wine or beer! Hostess is sweet, atmosphere is great, staff is always accommodating.

The fish fry everyone ordered was marginal. The actual fish was good. However, the french fries were half cooked and cold. They reminded me of store brand frozen french fries baked in an oven instead of being deep fried and only partially baked. The potato pancakes were inedible. The server never refilled my water glass. We are not coming back.

We have eaten at Allgauer’s in the Park twice in the last two months. The first time was very good - great service, hot food, and perfect acoustics. All were excellent . The second time wasn’t good- the waitress was new and didn’t do a good job of bringing correct orders to each of us, removing dirty dishes, refilling sodas, and food wasn’t hot nor did it look appealing. However, we will give Allgauer’s another chance.

We went for the Friday Fish Fry and it was great. All-you-can-eat fish is never a bad thing. I loved the walleye and cod. The perch was a little tough in texture. Not my favorite. But the sides and bread and discounted New Glarus beer made for a great meal. Our server, Denise was fantastic. The atmosphere was classy but lacked character, and it was a little loud in there for most of the meal, but overall, great experience. Will go again.

Overall very good. My salad order was wrong. Went for fish fry and you get potato pancakes plus French fries and 2 small pieces of fish. The saving grace is you get all you can eat fish.

We expected to be seated together at one table as we have been many times before and they split the group into two tables which meant not everyone was part of the same conversations.

Initially they said i had to wait despite having a reservation. Drinks took 20 minutes to arrive , after 2 reminders. Salads came out 2 minutes before fish came out. Orders were mixed up and fish was tough and chewy. Walleye was decent. We were asked to leave and free up a table before we were ready.

3 people for dinner. Brussel spouts with garlic, the garlic sauce was too harsh. Steak was tough with grizzle. Sauce on halibut was extremely plain, no lemon, dill or capers. Risotto was pasty, not smooth and silky as it should be. Drinks were made properly and severed in a timely manner. Salads were good, Caesar dressing was spot on. Garlic mashed potatoes were very good.
