The Berghoff Restaurant Review

: Tourists and locals alike line up for lunch and early dinner at this bustling institution, which has been at Adams and State Streets since 1898. They come as much for the old-world feel as for the food (even if it often is mediocre). Murals and photos of early Chicago, warm wood paneling, stained glass and gleaming chandeliers conjure up another century, as do waiters in bow ties and aprons wending their way among the crowds, staying calm amid the frenzy. The menu has been updated (actually quite Americanized) with mushroom panini and the like, but for the safest meal, stick with German favorites, such as sausages, sauerbraten or schnitzel. Sides stand out, among them German fried potatoes and rich creamed spinach. Seasonal fruit cobblers are the best finishes. Custom-made beers, bourbons and root beer have loyal fans. A quick-serve café is located next door.
