I have been going to The Berghoff since I was a child. When it closed, I was devastated. Now that it has reopened, I was delighted to find that it has maintained it's old world flair and flavor. If you go, order from the German specialities and be sure to try the, sour brauten, red cabbage and weiner snitzel.

The food is as good in its own fashion as the Berghoff downtown. Great sandwiches, we had a reuben and a roast beef, both splendid. We topped them off with the Berghoff lager, also really excellent. The counter service works well and fairly quick. I have yet to see them when they are not quite busy. I am so glad... More

...but I was starting a health kick...so I was surprised and pleased to find that they also offered fresh fruit, yogurt, and juices in addition to the cooked-to-order breakfasts. I was satisfied (and healthy) with my $5.02 breakfast, and laughed a little at the folks on the looooonnnnnnggg line at the nearby Starbuck's, where they'd no doubt be spending more... More

On our way out of town via Chicago O'Hare airport, we opted to eat lunch on-site and went to Berghoff's Cafe. What a pleasant surprise! Usually we're disappointed in airport food but the hot, off the bone turkey sandwiches were excellent! The sandwiches were loaded with freshly carved meat. It's set up cafeteria-style; wait in line, select food items, pay,... More

You can't come to Chicago without going to Berghoff. The food is great the service equal. A must. I bought friends to the place and told them they might be sitting in the same seats as Al Capone, it's possible!

We were waiting for a flight and we came to Berghoff because it was close to the gate. It should have been a whole lot better. First, half of the restaurant is closed off due to renovations, probably with the kitchen (as the food came out of there). Second, the host who takes your order had zero personality - abrupt...

Had an hour to spare before my flight. Stopped in here. Service was fairly quick. They take your order and make it as you are moving to the register. I ordered a corned beef sandwich on rye with swiss and spicy mustard. The sandwich was just OK. Corned Beef was dry and stringy tough. Not the best quality. Had to... More

It's unfortunate that terminal 1 hasn't changed like the rest of the world. Don't mind paying the price for airport food, but this is the worst selection I have seen in a long time. Used TA to locate and was disappointed. Cafeteria style, but got an $8 pizza that was the smallest least creative thing I have seen. Reminded me... More
