Been to Hugo's quite a few times and it never disappoints. My wife and I went for our anniversary and had amazing food and service. As a bonus our server gave us a ridiculously oversized and amazing hot fudge sundae that could've fed 4 people. I highly recommend Hugo's Frog Bar to anyone who asks about a quality steakhouse.

As should be expected given the current environment of runaway inflation under the Brandon Administration, the price of every was up 10% or more since my last visit.
Gold Coast Filet Sliders that used to be $15 for 3 are now $16.50 for 3.
I tried the prime rib steak sandwich, I wouldn't order this again. It wasn't trimmed enough for me and had too much fat.
The restaurant no longer had lamb on the menu which was a disappointment.
Overall, it was the same level of service and experience from the past, the manager still checked in with us to see if everything was okay.

Our dinner was perfect. Our server,Scott was so attentive. He told us about some of the food choices and allowed us to have a relaxed time. No rushing us. The food was outstanding! If there was anything negative, it would be the noise level. It was quite loud in the restaurant. That being said, there were a lot of people dining. The bottom line is that we really enjoyed the meal and the restaurant!

The whole experience was impeccable.

The front desk greeted us promptly.
We seated at the bar until the whole party was completed.
Joe the bartender got us the beverages within a second of us seating at the bar.
Our waiter John M greeted and welcomed us right away , once we were seated in his section.
He gave us a couple of minutes to observe the wine list , since we still had some beverages from the bar.
John M , took his time with explaining the menu .
The Food was delivered in time and was DELICIOUS.
The manager Jason , stopped by our table to introduce himself and to see how was everything, he was dressed to the “ nine” like a Goodfella.
I think we had 2 busboys working together as a team , I think their names were ( Tyler & Sam ).
They cleaned the table promptly and without to much fuss

Thank You team Hugo’s.
I was treated like one of the Team Guys

Had a great experience - not the first time. Service was attentive but not intrusive to our business meeting.

It got a little loud at lunch with a table of loud talkers nearby - too bad, otherwise it was a perfect lunch.

Jason (manager) helped me out when I left my CC at the restaurant and had to drive back to get it - he personally walked it to the curb so I didn't have to park. THAT is service and customer good will being built!

Me and Hubby were hanging out at the Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, IL on Saturday, September 11, 2021. After terribly losing to the slot machines we got hungry and decided to dine at Hugo's. Hugo's is a very nice restaurant. We started with appetizers... I ordered a delicious Wedge salad while hubby ordered a delicious Caesar salad. Hubby's entree was the Cheeseburger with fries. My entree was the Double Crab cakes with fries. Hubby enjoyed his Cheeseburger. I was enjoying my meal until I felt a bone scratch my gums. There was a bone in the crab cake that scratched my gum. I notified the waiter and the manager and showed both of them the bone. The manager and waiter brought me a menu and offered me the option of ordering something else. While I was looking at the menu for something else to order because I was still hungry; another rude waiter walked up to the table telling us we were done and commenced to cleaning the table off. 😳 The original waiter returned to the table to bring us our bill.

Very late Father’s Day dinner. The food was good but what stood out for me was the desserts. The creme brûlée was so incredible delicious and enormous. But enormous desserts must be their theme because the carrot cake slice could feed a party of 12.

Food was outstanding! For a moment I thought maybe I'll add salt to my mash potatoes?
Nope, they were so well seasoned as was everything else.
The carrot cake made quite an impression too.
