The Berghoff Restaurant is an iconic Chicago classic, serving German-American style cuisine and history since 1898. With traditional Berghoff dishes, contemporary American fare, seasonal menus, vegetarian and gluten-free options, there is truly something for everyone.
Inside this historic institution, you can find freshly baked bread from their in-house bakery, a lively main floor dining room, a fast-casual cafe in their lower level, and most recently, the loops only brewery–Adams Street.
As one of the oldest family-run businesses in the nation, it is currently under the helm of the fourth generation, Peter Berghoff. His great-grandfather and founder, Herman Berghoff, opened the Berghoff doors in 1898 as a men-only saloon; serving free corned beef sandwiches with the purchase of a stein of Berghoff Beer. During Prohibition, the establishment transitioned into a full-service restaurant and serving the now-famous Berghoff Rootbeer, Near Beer and Bergo Softdrinks.
Post Prohibition Herman acquired the city’s first liquor license, which you can find proudly on display behind their centuries-old bar.
This Chicago staple is a must-do on any trip to the windy city!
