Let me first say that this has been our "Go To" restaurant for over 30 years. Yes... we started going when they were called Chef Paul in the shopping mall  on Ogden and Naperville Rd. I hate to even write this but I want Al to take note. Last night I experienced the worst attitudes among staff. My wife thought it was a training issue but I don't think so. For starters the hostess gave me a zippy lecture about coming when texted for my table. She warned me that if I didn't come quickly, she'd give our table to someone else. Fine... we went to the bar. I did get a text (which is a good system) then within 2 minutes a second text. I don't think the hostess knows how a busy bar works. You just don't leave. You do have to get the bar tender's attention and pay the tab. So we headed to the table and soon we met our server and trainee. Because I'm not vindictive... I will leave out our server's name. He noted that we had our drinks (not quite half full) and took a drink order from 1 of the 4 people and suggested that 2 of us didn't need a refill when we requested a refill. He simply said, "no not yet, I'll come back." So we waited. Soon another person delivered the 1 drink allowed to be ordered however, our server didn't return for the other orders. After about 10 minutes I went to the bar and ordered myself.  He did come to the table and learned that I was at the bar...and came over to tell me not to order. I ignored him and ordered and paid for the drinks at the bar.  Shortly there after he returned to the table and tried to tell me his logic and... wanted to expound on his way of handling the situation. I shut him down and he left. The night progressed fine and the food was great as always. BTW...I tipped $14 on a $61 tab. ((Not sure why I did) This is a fantastic restaurant. We've gone thru COVID carry out orders and I was very generous supporting staff. The problem is the attitude. I've been to Germany. I am German. If this is the new vibe that this great old restaurant is trying to build... I'm gone!  I'm sure nobody cares...

Mike, though I completely understand your frustrations and don't dismiss them at all, I wish you had simply asked to speak to me directly about this matter rather than post this on a public forum. To call me out by name and finish your review with "I'm sure nobody cares..." is disingenuous. If you've been coming here for 30 years, you know me and my family live and breathe this place. It's literally all we do and all we care about and you know that. That's the reason you've enjoyed this place for as long as you have. I'm sincerely saddened by that fact that  that you publically dismiss my family's commitment to this establishment based on your interactions with two employees on one given night. If you truly enjoy this establishment as much as you say you do, I urge you to reach out to me directly so we can speak openly, candidly, and sincerely about your experience here last night. Thank you.

Excellent food! Huge menu with tons of options! If you're craving German food in the suburbs, this is the spot! Big fan of their cheddar ale soup & German sausage platter.

This place is superb! Great staff, great food and great service. We visit a couple of times a month and we love the beer garden and during cooler months we sit at the bar for a drinks and food. Tyler and Jason are perfect bartenders as they always have a great recommendation based on beers on tap. My in laws used to visit from England once a year and they always request a meal at the Bavarian Lodge. If you haven't already been, you need to visit.
