After years of searching far and wide for a location to open the follow-up restaurant to the highly successful Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse, owners Hugo Ralli and Steve Lombardo found what they were looking for right under their noses. In February of 1997 they launched the seafood companion to the Chicago legend they had created with Gibsons and named it Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House. The restaurant is dedicated to the same principles as its predecessor, unbelievable portions, value and quality coupled with memorable service.

Service and food was fantastic! When visiting Chicago again, Hugo's and Gibson's is definitely on our "go to" list!! We will definitely recommend both restaurants to travelers who are heading to the Windy City!!

Fantastic restaurant. My favorite in Chicago. The King Crab Legs are to die for. The desserts are enough to feed a family of four.
Great wine list. I from out of town, but I make this a regular stop every time I visit the area. You won’t be disappointed.

Overall a great experience. The greeting staff was energetic and welcoming, and our server Jonathan was fantastic. Very attentive and knowledgeable. The calamari and crab cake were on point. The only thing that was disappointing was my Porterhouse. I have been to Gibsons 5-6 times in my lifetime, and the Porterhouse from them is my favorite steak in Chicago. I just did not have a good steak this time. Really fatty cut of meat, and was overcooked from my Medium request. It happens sadly, but it still hurts when you pay $60. Overall, fantastic time.

We had an excellent experience from arrival to departure. The primary server was friendly and attentive. An additional server also helped out at one point. The Sea Bass was prepared well and the steak was excellent. The peas and mushroom side was really good. Great cocktails! We will visit again.

Service was great. Food was excellent. Only issue was that I was seated near the kitchen door. Not that big of a deal. Soup was as good as have had. My wife's entrée was the sea bass. It was excellent and I had crab legs. They too were very good. Great experience. Had Fun.

Had a group of 8 including an infant. First class service from moment we arrived through departure. Our servers were Joel and Andrew and they were pros. Excellent service and recommendations on cocktails, wine, and meal choices. This is the fifth time we’ve been and have had excellent experiences every time. Hugo’s is one of my top 3 places in Chicago to dine. Bravo!

This place is amazing. They show you entree samples before you order. The service ambiance and food was 5 star. We loved the music too. I highly recommend you won't be disappointed.

The Oysters are always fresh and flavorful.
The Clam Chowder is good for the Midwest but poor compared to the east coast.

Although the restaurant is affiliated with Morton's you are better off sticking with the seafood.

Service and bread was exceptional.
Nice variety of Beer on Tap.

First it was V Day, so it was great to be able to get a table. First off they seated us basically in the back dark corner of the restaurant, which we didn't mind too much because of the holiday. But soon we noticed how cold it was in the restaurant, we couldn't even finish our meal or take off our coats because of it. We rushed out so fast because of the cold.

But, our waiter was great. Very great recommendations and helped pairing oysters and splitting dishes.

I came in for my birthday and the service was impeccable by my waiter Pete. Both managers came over to say hello and check on how the food and service was. They were outstanding, engaging, professional and very kind. My waiter Pete went way out of his way to make sure cocktails, appetizers and dinner were nothing but wonderful...and they were. Best service I ever had in a Chicago restaurant. Thank you!

Fancy and fun! Hugo's is the seafood variant on Gibson's gourmet steakhouse, and bills itself as a Chicago institution. It fits the part--the menu is awe-inspiring in terms of fresh fish variety (all flown in daily, according to the restaurant), and it's association with Gibson's means you can get really amazing steaks as well. It's pricey--expect around $100 per diner (we had an appetizer, an entre, and an a la carte side, along with one drink).

The atmosphere is convivial, and the waiters are engaging and bring sample cuts of fish to show you what you'll get. It's an exciting place to eat--feels like the kind of place parties go to have amazing food and a good time.
