While the Berghoff has been owned and operated entirely by the Berghoff Family for over 100 years, they are not the only family tied to the establishment.

Dozens of staff members have been working for The Berghoff for multiple generations, not to mention the generations of diners who have celebrated milestones and togetherness within the walls of The Berghoff.

This loyalty acknowledges excellent leadership and care credited to third-generation owners and operators Herman and Jan Berghoff. The Berghoff today is now operated by their son Pete Berghoff. The Berghoff’s longevity is a testament to its excellence and the true epitome of The American Dream.

Interested in joining our corporate family? We accept applications on-site, Monday through Wednesday, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the 17 W. Adams location. You may submit a completed application to the host stand.

The holidays are almost here, and we are looking to add a few more key team members to our staff! We have open positions in both the front and back of the house—baker, cook, servers, bartenders, and bussers.

The Berghoff is an excellent event space for small or large events, with a diverse selection of craft beers from Adams Street Brewery and hand-crafted cocktails from our historic bar that pair perfectly with outstanding food that can make your event special and unique
