Enjoyed waiting my time out at the Berghoff bar. Good and tasty beer and a nice atmosphere. Friendly bartender. Apparently this place (the original location) was the first place in Chicago to get a liquor license after prohibition ended. Sometimes airport bars seem so cold I guess because they know you're leaving any second and people come and go all... More

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...
