You can't come to Chicago without going to Berghoff. The food is great the service equal. A must. I bought friends to the place and told them they might be sitting in the same seats as Al Capone, it's possible!

We were waiting for a flight and we came to Berghoff because it was close to the gate. It should have been a whole lot better. First, half of the restaurant is closed off due to renovations, probably with the kitchen (as the food came out of there). Second, the host who takes your order had zero personality - abrupt...

Had an hour to spare before my flight. Stopped in here. Service was fairly quick. They take your order and make it as you are moving to the register. I ordered a corned beef sandwich on rye with swiss and spicy mustard. The sandwich was just OK. Corned Beef was dry and stringy tough. Not the best quality. Had to... More

It's unfortunate that terminal 1 hasn't changed like the rest of the world. Don't mind paying the price for airport food, but this is the worst selection I have seen in a long time. Used TA to locate and was disappointed. Cafeteria style, but got an $8 pizza that was the smallest least creative thing I have seen. Reminded me... More

I was worried it would take to long to prepare the food and airport food usually isn't the absolute best, but this Chicken Pesto Sandwich was an absolute necessity. It was fantastic!! Will definitely get it again next time I have a layover in O'Hare!

This is a nice place to rest in between flights at ORD. The Reuben sandwich ($13) was piled high with meat but the bread was stiff and dry. The pickle was good. There was nice seating at the bar area, but it was very crowded. I got the last seat, so I was good. The two beers I had were... More

ideal for pre theater dining, but it certainly doesn't live up to its long established reputation. Although we were there when they opened for lunch, service was extremely slow. It must have taken close to 10 minutes for our drink orders to arrive, and they were for iced tea and sodas. The entrees were good but the accompaniments all arrived... More
