Our group went for the fish fry.The food was ok, but the salad bar could have had a few more salad choices. The server, Courtney, was excellent and attentive.

The value was not bad for $12.95 for the breakfast buffet. However, we were not offered water or juice options. The omelet station was fine, but the selection was not vast. Overall, a good place for a decent breakfast option.

To clarify, they have two buffet deals. The "breakfast buffet" is $12.95, only includes the breakfast food, and ends at 10am. The "brunch buffet" is $19.95, includes all the buffet food (breakfast, lunch, dessert) and mimosas, and starts at 10am. If you don't want buffet, they have breakfast and lunch menus too. We did the brunch buffet. Good food and service. Come hungry!

The greeting was a bit confused, the hostess was not very outgoing
The spicy& sweet short ribs were hard as if they had been sitting for some time.

Although short staffed, which is understandable during the holiday, our waitress was still very attentive and still maintained a warm, friendly, accommodating disposition. My Mom had to return her food but the second order she was very pleased with. This is our 2nd Christmas dinner here and we will more than likely return.

Later dinner in the very quiet bar area post hockey --- service from the bar attendant was poor. We had to stack empty salad plates etc to make room for the meal plates. Ceasar salad was the highlight but the main entrees were average.

The restaurant seating area was closed at the time of our arrival, so we were allowed seating at a table of our choice in the bar area, which was fine. The bartender covered all aspects of service, and did an admirable, attentive job. Thank you!

Based on reviews we found, we ordered the nachos and a couple of Thai lettuce wraps. Both were HUGE portions, well worth the reasonable prices charged, and were more than adequate as full meals for all of us.

Both dishes were excellent. We would certainly order again. We also ordered two rounds of specialty cocktails, and all were made very well using top shelf liquor. Prices were moderate for what was used, $10-$12 each. (Unfortunately, this made our bill for drinks greater than our food bill, but that happens often! ;-p)

Because the restaurant area was closed, the reservation check-in process was not dealt with normally, but the manager came to our table to take information and ensure we would receive proper credit and OT points for our reservation. And he offered free warmed-up cookies for dessert as well!

I've been to Allgauer's before, and have never been disappointed. We look forward to future visits back.

The staff was pleasant and accommodating however, they were a bit flustered. The doors opened at 5:15 instead of 5:00. We had 2 pepper shakers on our table and no salt shakers. When we asked for one we were given one from the next table as they had 2 and no pepper. The one we were given was empty. Other than those small but meaningful things, dinner went well.

Wasn’t quite impressed with the food at Allgauer’s. Met a friend there for early dinner as the reviews were 4 stars loaded motivating my wanting to dine here. Upon arrival the ambiance, hotel and restaurant was very chic. The waitstaff was exceptionally attentive and accommodating to us. However the hugest disappointment was the food. Food was mediocre, more aligned with buffet style taste...not meeting most hotel restaurants expectations for taste. Our dish lacked seasoning and freshness which is key for me. I ordered the short rib which was really dry and old tasting. The cooked spinach texture was still rough and the potato soup was pure liquid. The salad was also not fresh and had an “almost wilted” brownish color to it. I would visit the double tree again but not Allgauer’s.

OMG, what a great find right off the tollway in Alsip! We went for Mother’s Day (Saturday night before) and were very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant has a lot of ambiance, great menu, reasonably priced and good service. If you’re looking for a nicer restaurant in the area, definitely give Allgauer’s a go!

This was my second night at the hotel and eating at the restaurant. The first night, I had salmon with the potato cakes. House salad was first. I liked the fresh mixed greens and balsamic vinaigrette. The salmon was cooked well with a nice glaze. Very large portion. Service was prompt and pleasant. Second night, I had the Soup and Wallaye. Again, wonderful service and large portions. My only slight complaint is the fish with fresh vegetables and wild rice was all a little plain. Tarter sauce helped, but otherwise, a healthy enjoyable meal! Highly recommend!

It was not crowded at all our reservation was for 7pm we sat down as soon as we walked in for our reservation. No waiter so much as said hi to us the first 25 min we were there..the manager came to our table to greet us and asked us if we wanted anything to drink took our drink orders but he said we needed to wait on our waiter to order food. it took them another 20 minutes to give us our drink and when we said we were ready to order it took another 20 minutes after that get a app ordered! IT took 30 minutes for our appetizers to get there which were cold and they never came back to take our order even though we asked the host to take our order also .. so we left and paid for our appetizers and drinks very very bad experience. I could not give 0 stars because the app would not let me. Let me remind you that our reservation was for 7 they were trying to hurry up and clean up to leave and they do not close until 10
