My wife and I were married at Allgauer's many years ago, and so for Valentine's Day this year, we thought we'd revisit the place to see what's changed and enjoy a trip down memory lane. We arrived around 12:30 for lunch and were seated immediately....More

Attached to the Hilton Northbrook. Slow service when busy and food is passable but not beyond the norm for restaurant food. In other words, there are other better options in Northbrook town, but not bad for in-house cuisine if you have no other options available.

So, if you travel and stay at Hilton properties, you'll recognize this breakfast buffet, but here you have to pay $15 for it. It's even lacking many things that are included at other Hilton properties. They do offer menu service, I'd give that a once...More

The easiest is to take 294 to Willow rd. Go west on Willow rd and take a left onto Sanders Rd by the BP station. Take a right onto Winkleman and the hotel is just a few blocks up on the right.
