Had a business lunch at Hugo's on a week day. Plenty of easy-free parking. I was surprised how easy it was to walk into the restaurant without having to go through the casino.

Very good food, menu and service. Good sound level for conversation.

Outstanding menu with fabulous service. All entrees were delicious and served hot. This included steaks cooked to perfection and fish. Dessert was amazing and enough to be enjoyed by our table of 5. Host very cordial and all staff very concerned that our visit was amazing. Really great and will return again soon.

I had made a reservation for a business dinner; party of eight. Because it was in a casino, it was way too loud; no one could hear each other. Will not be going back.

The food and service was excellent as always. Walter and staff were excellent. Personable, professional, attentive and cute as a button. Both of them! Outstanding visit. Lickety split service cleaning spilled water. Manager also stopped a few times to check on things. Walter provided a birthday dessert with a candle.

Hugo's is inside the Casino. So you get to see all of the action while walking through, and even stop and try your luck! The service was impeccable. The food was amazing with VERY large portions. Very close to Ohare airport so I will definitely go back when staying in the area again.

Hugo's Frog Bar inside Rivers Casino in Des Plaines is an excellent choice to escape the madness of the gaming floor while having a Gibson's worthy meal (after all, this is a 'cousin' of the very same).

Wonderful food and service. The restaurant was a little loud, but not anything that would stop me from going back or recommending the restaurant. The carrot cake was 10-inches tall and DELICIOUS!

We celebrated our one year anniversary here tonight. Very happy with this location. Everyone was very friendly. Food was fantastic. We had the frog legs, ribeye, jumbo crab cakes, brussel sprouts and meaning of life cake. It was fun to check out the casino after dinner. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic T-bone steak. Flavorful (no steak sauce needed), tender and perfectly cooked. Also a large portion. The double baked potato was huge and covered in delicious cheese. The Caesar's Salad was crisp and cold as it should be. Overall a great meal.

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)

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.
