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

Unfortunately, Allgaurs has gone done hill over the years. This used to be a great place for brunch, but it appears that the restaurant has decided to sacrifice food quality. The food was dry and tasteless for the most part. One of my guests found a long hair in the eggs on the buffet line This was embarrassing as we really bragged about this place. The service was good however and the servers should be commended. Never again.

New Years Eve dinner. The strip steak ordered was tough and chewy. All 3 other meals were very delicious. Service was slow and spotty. Rolls were delivered without butter. Our soups and salads were already finished when the server finally came with butter. We ordered coffees, then we and had to wait because they had to brew a pot. We expect better from Allgauer’s.

It was small. I had previously had brunch at the Lisle location and this Alsip location pales in comparison. I simply expected more based on my previous experience. Also there were bugs flying in and out of the desserts.

Not enough waitstaff, very long wait times for food. 18 min for appetizers, 30 minutes later for dinner, waited 20 min for dessert to be told they were out of the item. We were the for 2.5 hrs. Wont return as a result.

Mark, the server, was SUPERB! The food was excellent.
My credit card actually got lost on the way back from desk! The entire staff stopped everything & looked for the CC. It turns out that the flap where you put the CC was ripped & the card was under an unused table on the other side of restaurant! It had slipped out of the holder, & was gray & matched the gray carpet! The hostess immediately threw the holder out & I tipped the bus boy that had found the CC!

We went to Allgauers for lunch last year and it was decent enough to try for dinner. Both of us were disappointed. We had broccoli soup (too much flour), ordered an appetizer (fried calamari) which was okay, but the sauce was watery and boring, and dinner was pretty tasty (beef brisket) but served at the same time the appetizer came out. Too bad. Not much else to say.

We have an Algauer's Rewards Card but the staff were unable to upload our receipt so we have to come back with our receipt. This must have happened one other time because we did the same thing only the other time the staff didn't even tell us to save our receipts!
