Stop in and see why we're one of the most popular German restaurants and premier beer destinations in the Chicago area. Pay us a visit and we're sure it won't be your last time stopping in.
A local favorite, the Lodge packs them in. At dinner time expect a long wait unless you're there to unlock the doors yourself. Lunch is less hectic, especially on Saturday. The food is the draw, of course, hearty German fare. Large portions are the norm. The beer selection is off the charts, a full page of brews both local and from the fatherland. Bring the magnifying glass because the print is TINY. The dining room is dark and homey, beer steins and stuffed critters the primary motif. The bar area is huge and similarly decorated. Service is topnotch but allow time for the food. It is a very busy place. By the way, mom and dad loved it.

Come visit us and have a taste of southern Brazil!
My first visit to Chama Gaucha was for a business group dinner. I expected a typical Brazilian steakhouse, but was happy to find an extremely high-quality appetizer bar and incredible high-quality meat selection. The service was impeccable, and every food item was the freshest and tastiest possible. Even the desserts (Keylime pie, NY cheesecake) were exceptional! It will be difficult to beat Chama Gaucha at any other Brazilian steakhouse of its kind, regardless of price. If you are ever visiting in the Lombard or Downers Grove area, be sure not to miss this restaurant.

Busy Bee's maple cinnamon donut is one of the best things I've ever eaten. It's an airy yeast donut topped with a thin layer of caramel frosting and dusted with cinnamon powdered sugar. Everything else I've tried is very good, but these are amazing. Sometimes my co-workers bring in a tray of Busy Bee donuts - I am always grateful for their thoughtfulness. Note that Busy Bee is closed on Sunday and Monday.

Cozy, warm, clubby decor makes The Capital Grille a comforting venue for patrons looking for a generous sized meal in an upscale atmosphere. Valet parking is offered, and self-parkers will find ample spots since the restaurant is adjacent to a shopping mall.
The Capital Grille's wine list is extensive and its menu is varied. In particular, their steaks are phenomenal, with many types from which to choose, from a manageable-sized filet mignon to much larger cuts. Lobster is prepared nicely without overcooking; the soups are delicious, ranging from bisques to a delicious crock of traditional onion topped with grill-melted cheese.
My husband and I split the Buratta salad with poached pears, pesto sauce and arugula: delightful.
For a special occasion such as an anniversary, not only will the diners be greeted with a handwritten card at a rose petal-strewn table, but your photo will be taken and a mouthwatering free dessert will arrive on a platter hand lettered in chocolate with good wishes! Our molten chocolate cake with ice cream and blueberries was out of this world.
We have sat in various spots in this restaurant, from a round near the open kitchen to a large corner booth to a small table in a cozy room with only two other parties nearby. Each offers its own experience, but our preference is always for more privacy.
Service is attentive but not exceptional, and unfortunately, occasionally irritating. For the high price point of this restaurant, this reviewer would not expect to be addressed as "you two", asked if one were "still nibbling", or be prompted in an evaluative direction by being asked if our food was tasting fantastic. Every restaurant has room for improvement, however, and the food more than makes up for the service shortfalls at The Capital Grille.

Went today for dinner- best corned beef and rye with a big dill pickle you will ever find! Great service and the owner Howard- what a great guy! Free bagel chips and the dessert choices are to die for! And their all beef bacon product called Schmacon is fantastic!

Recently had dinner here with friends, about my fourth time eating here. The food
quality has taken a downturn, as the popularity of this restaurant has increased. The
combination plate I ordered is something I've had before, with a sampling of very different flavors, but at this visit, it seemed like the flavors were not there, everything seemed to taste the same, like four different pastas covered with the same sauce. The lowlight, though, was watching an employee walk past our table toward the kitchen with his finger up his nose. That alone = not coming back.

Parkers' Restaurant & Bar is a chef-driven, full service, contemporary American restaurant and bar serving lunch, dinner, and private functions. The restaurant features fresh fish and seafood along with high quality meat and pasta preparations. The restaurant is housed in a transformed New England-style building on Highland Avenue at 31st, just north of I88 in Downers Grove, a western suburb of Chicago. The ambiance is casual-upscale with a mosaic tiled, open kitchen adjacent to a 150 seat dining room featuring a polished hardwood decor. The cozy, 50 seat bar and cocktail lounge area features a dramatic, wood vaulted ceiling and live piano entertainment, in the evening.
Overall, food choices were good and our guests enjoyed what they ordered. Desserts were creative and excellent. Service was relatively slow probably due to the crowd/service ratio. What was purportedly Boulliabaise was more of a Cioppino given the heavy tomato flavor. Would not order it again but those in the party that ordered steaks were very happy with their choices.

Allgauers consistently has the best Sunday brunch buffet in the area! Incredible range of choices; outstanding cold shrimp, crab legs and oysters, and hot seafood, beef, pork and prime rib. Plus an out of this world dessert bar. Always booked months in advance for Easter and Mothers Day. You'll be glad you came!

Home to America's favorite Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef, burgers, salads, and chocolate cake.
I ordered carryout on line. Not only was the wait in line about 20 minutes, after allowing 20 minutes for the food to be prepared, but they forgot my husband's chicken sandwich and threw in an extra potato. The quality of service continues to erode.
