The Berghoff Restaurant Employee Relief Fund

Being a family-owned and -operated Chicago establishment for over 120 years isn't something we take lightly. Every customer who has walked through our doors since 1898, from the multi-generationalfamilies that dine with us, or the frequent flier who makes it a point to grab a pint before they embark , it is because of them, because you, we are still in business.

Whether you have traveled through our location at O'Hare, grabbed a quick bite on your lunch break downtown, or if you visit our restaurant for the holidays, we want to say thank you; we are grateful for you.!

As we've entered a new phase during this closure, due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we,like many in in our industry, realize that the team who makes our company go round needs our help more than ever.

We have set up The Berghoff Restaurant, Berghoff Cafe O'Hare & Adams Street Brewery Employee Relief Fund in hopes that it can alleviate some of the financial burdens our team members are currently facing. The funds will be 100% donated to all of our employees (excluding Ownership and Executive Management) at the time of the closure on March 16th, 2020.

If you are able, any donation of any value is greatly appreciated. No amount is too small. On behalf of our team, we thank you for the support!

We hope you and your families are healthy and safe during this unimaginable time, and we can't wait to serve you all again in the very near future!
