The Berghoff Restaurant is a Chicago landmark, serving German style cuisine and culture since 1898. One of the oldest family-run businesses in the nation, it is now run by fourth generation, Carlyn Berghoff. At today’s Berghoff, menus have evolved to add newer, lighter and more contemporary dishes, but it’s still the same old Berghoff, down to the famous root beer. If you are looking for a meal that combines the best of traditional German and contemporary American, come dine at the Berghoff.
