      Berghoff is a German restaurant located at 17 W Adans Street, Chicago, IL. Those of you who are German or have lived in Germany might think that the food is not authentic enough and tastes a little different than the original German dishes.

      However, we need to realize that when European food is transported to America, it will inevitably change and adapt to accommodate local tastes.

      Traditional Italian, Russian, or Greek dishes at


      a New York or Chicago restaurant will be different from the same dishes in Italy, Russia, and Greece.

      Keeping that in mind, Berghoff is a very nice German place.

      After all, they’ve been around since 1898 - *of course* some of the recipes will have changed!

      The extensive menu features all kinds of hard-to-pronounce German things like geschetzelts, spaetzel, and sauerbraten, as well as more familiar bratwurst.

        Berghoff’s own homemade bread, baked on the premises, is fabulous.

        Some of that bread and butter is usually served as a starter.

        The Germans are known for their love of beer, so you would obviously expect to see a long list of those available - and you will not be disappointed.

        Berghoff had their own beer brewed for them somewhere in Wisconsin.

        I am not a beer lover myself so I wouldn’t be able to tell you much about it though, except that there is a lot to choose from.

        Berghoff is a busy place, definitely a tourist attraction, and therefore can be a bit crowded.

        Despite the considerable size of the room, you might have to wait for your seat.

        Usually, reservations are not necessary, but it wouldn’t hurt to call (312-427-3170) and ask how busy they are.
