The Berghoff

The Berghoff is a rarity in America’s restaurant industry—100% family-owned and family-operated for more than 121 years. The Berghoff’s popularity through the decades is a tribute to its consistent dedication to quality, warmth, and whimsy. The menus remain relevant as longtime chefs Matt Reichel and Javier Avalos adapt and create to today’s palate. Gluten-free options and lighter German-inspired fare, along with longstanding favorites like creamed spinach and Bavarian pretzels keep customers old and new coming in. With almost every single dish made in-house, the commitment to freshness is uncompromising. Paired with the old-world charm of the landmark building, filled with Chicago mementos and artifacts, The Berghoff has something to delight everyone who visits.
