Sometimes there's nothing like a classic. Finished off my first day of my Chicago holiday by stopping off at this iconic establishment for a drink and a bit to eat. Simply breath taking place. You can just feel the bustle of history flowing around you. I settled for a spot at the bar since I was solo. The bartenders were attentive and helpful, allowing me to sample several of the beer selection to help me decide. I ended up choosing the Vienna lager and Gretchen's potato pancakes, which were a perfect match in both palette and vibe. The most unique and mouthwatering appetizer I have ever had. Each bite was like it's own personal welcome to town. My hats off the the chef and a dish everyone coming to town should go out of there way to sample at least once. Learning that this bar has connections to my own home town of Fort Wayne Indiana down to Addams brewery was just the cherry on top. Very much looking forward to my next visit to this spot and highly recommend this place. It truly does live up to the hype.
Wonderful, fun dinner for 12 in their Chef's private room. We first stopped in their historic bar for a drink and a toast. David was our server and he was excellent! Everyone loved their dinner and followed it up with dessert and coffee. It was so nice being in this iconic restaurant. There is nothing pretentious. Just good people doing excellent work.
If you like German food, this classic Chicago icon is a must go. The service is prompt and have a thorough knowledge of the menu. The locally made beer selection is outrageous in both the number and quality of the offerings. We had nice appetizer of potato pancakes, and wiener schnitzel and chicken schnitzel. Very very good.
Enjoyed and excellent meal here on Friday 12/3. We were promptly seated and our server was friendly and attentive. We started off with Gretchen's potato pancakes as an appetizer. They were quite yummy. For our dinners we had the Jäger Schnitzel and the Molasses Crusted Pork Chop. Both were excellent. Finally for dessert, we split an apple strudel. We both also enjoyed one of their locally brewed beers which was also very good. Overall great service and food, at a very reasonable price for Chicago. Highly recommend this as a dining stop while visiting Chicago.
The Berghoff was a fun place to fine for, in my case, a late lunch/early dinner. It has a large beer selection and a concentrated list of German foods. Our table got the curds, 3 sausage plate, and the schnitzel. All were good and went well with the Wheat Banana Beer I got. Would recommend. The interior is beautiful by the way.
