Our family has celebrated special occasions at Allgauer's Sunday Brunch for years, but last Sunday was our last forever! Food was poorly prepared (roast beef tasted like commercial grade, with no flavor); selections were very limited (no ham at a Sunday brunch, for example); service...More

I believe it was about $40 per person. I personally believe it was not worth that price

The easiest is to take 294 to Willow rd. Go west on Willow rd and take a left onto Sanders Rd by the BP station. Take a right onto Winkleman and the hotel is just a few blocks up on the right.
