The service was amazing. There was so much to eat and so many varieties that pretty much everyone can find something to eat. The view was great if you sit by the window. Well worth the price.

It was my 50th birthday brunch celebration.

The tablecloth was ripped in two areas, the napkins were very wrinkled, the Mimosa (twice) had WAY too much champagne,. The coffee mug was dirty.

The food was good, except for the roasted vegetables, they were unedible, the chef didn’t clean his pan prior to making my omelette and it turned out to be greasy., I could only eat the non greasy sides. The seared scallops were WAY too greasy and a tad over cooked.

I was really really disappointed.

The seafood buffet is much smaller than it used to be. The items were fresh and delicious but not as many choices. Surprisingly, there were very few people in the restaurant at dinner time.

Love Allgauer's for Sunday brunch! Excellent, wide variety of foods and bottomless mimosas.

Three of us had Sunday Buffet Brunch and we were extremely pleased and impressed. They have substantially upgraded since the last time we had brunch there. More spacious set-up made it easy to navigate. More expansive hot, made/served-to-order offerings. Tons of delicious choices. Food was excellent, server was pleasant and efficient. Great experience!

I was disappointed when I dined in with my family. We frequently come to Drury Lane and we found out there’s one close by my house same as Drury Lane’ Sunday brunch. Our server was excellent but there were few variety of food compared to Drury Lane. The food doesn’t look fresh as well. The only plus side is, it is not as packed as Drury Lane. I don’t recommend their Sunday brunch.

First time to visit and our dinner party was unimpressed. Service was very slow and food was just ok, will not return

I had eaten here a couple years ago. Overall it was decent but my breakfast sausage was undercooked and although they open for breakfast early the omelette station wasn't setup until like 9:30-10am and we had already eaten by then. I'm not sure I'd go back for breakfast unless there was an event there or I was meeting someone staying there. That said I have had dinner/lunch there a couple times and it was very good. Maybe the lesson is to order off the menu and not do their breakfast buffet.

We previously have celebrated special family events with a Sunday brunch at Allgauers. This time, we were appalled at the brunch, and we won't be coming back.

Food selection was limited (for example, no ham); service was at best negligent (up to ten used plates never removed from our table); and food preparation was lackluster (roast beef was tasteless, salads were dull).

Don't go!
