See what guests are saying about Stammtisch!
"I really like the fact that only people with reservations were allowed in the table area. That made our time much more enjoyable!"
"It was great having a place to sit down and eat, inside the warmth, for my party. It's always a fun atmosphere inside, and you really can't beat being at the market."
Alles Wurst Package
"Absolutely loved the food, the decorations on the table, and everything about our package!"
"We loved the décor and the quality of food. We go to Germany annually and it felt like that same 'spirit of hospitality' was present in downtown Chicago! Danke schon!"
The "Premium" Package
"We had a large [business] group and the service was great in that we could use drink tickets to order with the staff and a pot of gluehwein was at the table. This was very helpful, as it was a business event and we didn't want people to have to leave the table to go get drinks"
