We love the bar/lounge. Super relaxed with the same wonderful menu and service as the main dinning room. Usually I have frog legs or a steak but I was feeling like a burger and it didn’t disappoint. Thanks for a fun night out.

As always, food was good; service very good. Restaurant is really dark, hard to read menu. Generally, a distracting environment on night we were there (presence of servers and other staff constantly passing our table - May just have been the location of our table)

Great food & service! Steaks were awesome - perfectly done & seasoned. Lobster Roll was a hit! Could have given the option of having either the chips or fries to go along with it. Overall, happy with the experience.

The waiter was not very professional, and the manager who watched it was also unconcerned. I didn't expected that much because it's in casino, but still If you want to run a fine restaurant, this borders should be more professional or you should not discriminate against your guests.

When it’s a special occasion we’re all about the full dining room experience.

However we love going to the Des Plaines location and sitting in the bar area to enjoy an awesome meal while watching sports as just relaxing.

This place is SO MUCH BETTER than Gibsons! We were not on top of each other like you are at Gibson's. We ate a beautiful 3-hour meal including martinis appetizers wine and dinner. And I will tell you all do yourself a favor and order the crab avocado appetizer!

Food was not very good - there were 3 of us, and none of us came away happy with our entrees, particularly how the steaks and the tuna was cooked. For such a pricey place, we expected higher quality of food.

Brought my girlfriend to Hugo’s after mentioning for 1 month. My girlfriend noticed the frog legs on the menu and really wanted to have as appetizer-I agreed . Yes they were very good-yes it tasted just like chicken .
My girlfriend had the lamb chops (served with mint jelly) and I had the Chilean sea bass. Both disses very very good . Our dessert was the chocolate mousse pie -oh my goodness -so good
Planning return visit
Our service and server was very good

I prefer a quieter setting when I am enjoying good food and the food was very good. The sauce on the tuna tartar was really nice and the creamed spinach excellent. Steak and scallops both reflex the price nicely. I would never come to the restaurant unless I was visiting the casino but even with the hustle and bustle of partying patrons the staff was excellent.

Everything was great except where we were seated. Our table was just outside of the kitchen, and waiters were going by constantly. We had a reservation so I thought we could have been given a better table location.

We decided to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary at Hugo"s and we decided correctly. The staff is friendly and polite. The food and drinks were amazing. We ended up being there almost 3 hours and were never rushed and we truly enjoyed the evening. We will be back soon.

We had dinner here to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday and it was OUTSTANDING. The service was amazing - we were treated like we were special guests and they really honored my note that we were there to celebrate a birthday. The food was delicious and a good value for the excellent quality. A wonderful evening.

Tucked into the Rivers Casino, it was a pleasant surprise to find this quality restaurant. We knew that its start was in Chicago proper, and that Hugos Frog has several locations. The appetizers were excellent. Steaks done perfectly. The service was attentive. Definitely will have another visit.

We came to celebrate a birthday. Was able to place the dessert order in advance. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. The sides are meant for sharing and we are able to get half sizes so we could have more than one. The dessert could easily have served four people.
