Atmosphere: I stopped in during a lunch break and the place generates a big crowd for their classic lunch line. Many businessmen that work in the loop frequent this place. It is crowded, but you can still comfortably find a seat.

Quality: The quality of beer is okay. It is not the greatest beers in the world, but they are tasty enough to compliment your food.

Service: Service wasn't great, but it was sufficient. Bartender was friendly and answered questions about the beers.

Selection: With seven beers on tap, the selection isn't great. Four of the beers on tap are actual Berghoff beer (ehh) and three guest draughts.

Food: The trick to the Berghoff is to eat at the cafe section where they are serving the lunch lines. The food is similar/same quality as the menu food at a fraction of the cost. The food is good overall.

The Berghoff is a great place to go for historical value. If you are looking to get amazing beer and service this may not be your place.

I stopped in this place today for a mini trip to the loop. I had a corned beef sandwhich which was pretty good but nothing to write home about. I also had a pint of the pale ale which was way too sweet and malty and I couldn't tell if it they put any hops into it. Probably my fault for ordering a hoppy beer at a german restaurant. They have soccer on tv which is a plus for me because I can never get enough soccer. Overall the food was decent and fair priced but the beer was mediocre at best. It's alot cheaper than the elephant and castle down the street but they have fullers esb on tap which this place can't compete with

The Berghoff in Chicago had pretty tasty food, but the beer definitely lacked a bit. Went there for lunch one day and enjoyed a tasty hamburger with their homemade chips. Also had perogies for an appetizer, which were great.

However, overall it was fairly uninspiring. The atmosphere is fairly bland overall. I imagine at night it might be a bit more lively in the bar. The food was good, the service was decent. The beer lacked, but I'll address that in the beer reviews. Good place for a meal at fairly reasonable prices, but not a lot else I can say about it. Average otherwise.
